Planetary Poems15-03-2018 | 21:30:28 | 1 Comment

This week, Year 3 have been learning about acrostic poems and cinquaine poems. We have read some examples and picked out their features. We then chose a planet from the solar system to describe using figurative language like similes and metaphors. Next, we wrote some drafts and edited them to make some superb acrostic and cinquaine poetry.

Finally, we got to record and perform our poems in front of the new green screen purchased by the Bispham Buddies – we were very excited and want to share them with you so take a look!

Which is your favourite and why? Please leave a comment for us to read. ‘3h’ is the password to watch these videos.

Changing Horizons Event at the Winter Gardens – February 22nd 201805-03-2018 | 13:51:57 | 2 Comments

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We waited for our transport to take us to the Changing Horizons event at the Winter Gardens. A game of ‘eye spy’ entertained us, whilst we waited!

On arrival,  we were greeted by Nicola Smith and Linda Astley who were our lovely hosts for the day.

Following registration, we  were taken around different stalls, where the children took part in a variety of activities, linked to an area of work they may be interested in in the future. The children worked with ‘Forces Television, Warburtons, Blackpool and the Fylde College, amongst others. The group visited many different stands too, where the Police, Army and  Navy talked about what a career with them would be like.

We took part in a taste test with Warburtons. Each child came away with a free loaf, Mrs Cox and Mrs Bell too!

 

 

 

The group particularly liked filming with the ‘Forces TV’ crew. They experienced what it is like to set, light and record a news and weather piece.  We certainly saw some future TV stars in the making!

Before returning back to school, the children filled out a quick card, to say what they enjoyed about their day. Here are some examples;

 

Many thanks to the organisers, DWP for an inspirational day! Also, a big thankyou to Linda and Nicola, our guides for helping us along the way.

What a super start to our World Book day today!

Look at the photographs we took in assembly this morning.

Visitors from another world!01-03-2018 | 09:21:54 | No Comments

We have been visited by something from outer space!

We arrived on Monday morning to see a spaceship had crashed in Bispham Endowed’s playground. We inspected it carefully and the inhabitant of the craft was nowhere to be seen. The children have been writing alien stories about a human character meeting the alien and using speech marks to have dialogue between the characters.

Keep an eye out for any other mysterious things happening in and around school.

Did anyone catch this amazing lightning storm over half term? Reports have suggested that the storm was so powerful that large objects crashed into the ground. Can you see any of them on the picture? One eye-witness claimed, “I am sure I saw an object hovering above the Tower whilst it was lightning! Look at the picture I snapped.”

I’ve got a new sister18-02-2018 | 19:33:19 | 2 Comments

Here she is Baby Betsie and she is a real pain!

 

I suppose she is OK.

I just wish I knew how long she is staying for.

I have a horrid feeling it might be forever.

I just want tickles.

 

 

I can’t wait for tickles on Monday!

I love tickles too.
