Year 3 & 4’s week!

This week we have been working really hard on our test practise. We have done some reasoning problems, we did a maths test then we went through them and explained how we worked our problems out. We have also been practising our times tables!

This week we have been brining our bikes and scooters to school for the Big Pedal! Yesterday we cycled around our school football pitch.

We have been learning about wind turbines and we have been making Powerpoints about them!

Hope you have enjoyed reading our first blog,

Year 3 & 4

Year 3 and 4 are Bloxel Builders!

In Year 3 and 4 we have been busy using Bloxels Builder to design and create our own video games. We have done this as part of our work on Coal Mining and have used the ‘Bloxels’ to design and make our own levels featuring dangers from the mines such as explosions, mine shafts and streams. We have also created our own animated miners complete with flashing torches and tools! As part of this task we had to use lots of important skills such as collaboration, design, editing, trialling and evaluating our games.

We are now Bloxels experts in Year 3 and 4 and we will be visiting the rest of Key Stage Two to share our skills!

Our Day Down the Mine by Year 3 and 4

We were lucky to have the chance to visit Big Pit on Monday 13th February! We were all very excited as we made our way there on the coach- it took quite a long time and we couldn’t wait to get out to explore!

 

When we arrived, Mrs Biggar and Miss Mogford took their classes off down the mine to see what life was really like for the miners who worked there. We couldn’t believe that children our age had to work for 12 hours a day….6 DAYS A WEEK! It was so dark, dirty….and DANGEROUS! Meanwhile, Miss Evans and Mr Harris took the rest of us to explore the mine above ground…We saw where the explosives were kept in world war 1 (it was far away from the rest of the mine), we saw the fan room (the fan had to pump fresh air into the mine and get rid of the stale air and poisonous gases) and the bath house!

Then, after a delicious picnic, we swapped over and it was Miss Evans and Mr Harris’s turn to take the children to do their shift underground! A few of us felt a little nervous but we soon got used to the darkness. We felt safe in our hard hats, bright torches and our guide, Stevie, looked after us so well! We saw the coal face, the stables (the horses were kept underground and only came up to the surface for a two week holiday in the summer!), the equipment, the trams and when we all turned our torches off we could believe how dark it was!

 

It was a fantastic day out and we really got an idea of what condidtions were like for the miners. It also made us realise how very lucky we are not to have to work in a dangerous job like the children had to back then.
