Books used by Year Three so far this year.

The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane
We are reading this delightfully illustrated book based on words that have recently been removed from the Oxford Junior Dictionary.
As part of our exploration of The Lost Words, we went onto Scarcroft Green to use our observation skills.  The idea was to look for bits of wool and thread that had been hung up on nearby plants and hedges.  The first time most of the colours that were found were bright (reds and pinks) so we had another go specifically looking for more camoflaged colours like greens and browns.  Now that we were looking more closely, we found a lot more of the harder to spot colours.  This helped us to hone our observations skills when looking for some of the Lost Words on the green.

4 Times Table Song (Cover of I'm Still Standing by Taron Egerton)

The children have been singing some Elton John in assembly with Mrs Wanless so perhaps this times tables cover will get them learning the fours!

Scarcroft and Knavesmire Concert - March 28th

On Thursday 28th March, we had the pleasure of welcoming Knavesmire's Year 4s to school for a concert. Down to the Hard work of Mrs Martin and Mr Vaughan,each pupil who comes through either school gets the chance to learn a musical instrument. This is provided through York Arts Education. Thank you to those who were able to donate anything to either school on the doors. Any money collected will be put towards future music tuition or events. 


On the day, Mr Roper's ukulele group kicked us off with three songs, including a great one where tango partners had to switch places. Knavesmire violins followed up with some great songs, all the more impressive considering they only started their lessons in January! Mr Cole's class started in an unorthodox manner, following a Beatles classic with some beatboxing. They then played Hot Cross Buns (almost seasonal!) and Au Clair de la Lune before combining the two songs as a finale. Knavemire's own ukulele group followed that with their own songs before all four classes joined to sing 'A Little Can Change' - a song with a great message that some of you may have recognised from this year's Young Voices. 


Thank you to those parents, friends and family who were able to attend. Thanks must also be given to Mrs Martin and Mr Vaughan, without whom such an experience would not happen.
