Yesterday,the whole school had a penalty shoot out outside of the dining room. The penalty shootout was lead by Bradford City F.C and we managed to raise lots of money for charity and school.People who tried to raise money got to take four penalty’s against the chicken Billy Bantam from Bradford city and people who didn’t raise any money still got a chance to take a penalty at the end of the shootout. At the end of the shoot out of course no-one wanted to be left out so the teachers had a shot at Billy Bantam too! if you are wondering if you raise at least £3 you will get a medal and if you raise £20 or over you will get your a self a Bradford city football and maybe a medal! But the best… if you raise the most money out of the whole shootout you will get a unique Bradford City F.C football signed by Bradford city footballers!thnk you for putting in the effort to raise money and we are very grateful for your conturbiton to our fund today. The charity’s and our school are very delighted with all the money raised today and soon we may edit this post to tell you the grand total of money raised yesterday! We are all looking forward till we get our prizes.
St John’s today had a successful Red Nose Day with lots of funny faces and red noses hanging about. The children were all dressed in red clothes. A huge thank you to the school councillors (including myself) for coming to school at 8:15 to raise money in the morning and staying at school until 3:30 the raise money after school. Thank you to all of the parents and children who donated to red nose day funds at school as it makes a massive difference to the comic relief funds, and remember, every penny that you have donated today is another penny as the UK Government are going to double the money that we have raised today. Even if you didn’t donate to us today thank you as well for coming in in red clothes and if you bought an red nose any where that’s still money donated. Once again a big thank you to the school councillors and everyone else who contributed today to red nose day.
This week, year 3 visited a Victorian museum in Leeds to experience what it was like in the Victorian times. The main reason we went on this trip is because we have started a brand new topic all about inventions and machines! Our behaviour was perfect because we knew if we behave naughty we would get slapped really hard on the hand by the cane (not for real!)
Things that we did.
At first we did maths which isn’t just calculating but we learnt all about the time as well! We slowly kept looking at the answers on the answer board and then the teacher rubbed all the answers out and we had to answer them! We also got given a ”copy book” which is basically a handwriting book but instead of using a normal pencil we used a special pen called a dip pen! The dip pen is also a bit horrible to use because the ink gets all over your hands!
1. Do not talk unless the teacher asks you to.
2.You have to say yes maam or yes sir
3.If you are answering a question you have to stand up behind your desk.
How we felt.
It was a very exiting day for year 3. We had lots of fun experiencing what it was like in the Victorian times. We are all very lucky that we are in our schools right now. We learnt how hard it was for Victorian children: EXTREMELY HARD.
