welcome to the j.k. rowling class

Welcome to our page!. This year we are The Rowlings, and also known as class 8. Our is teacher is Miss Millard and we are also very lucky to have Mrs Rourke help us with our learning too.  We decided to be called The Rowlings this year after the inspirational author J.K. Rowling and during transition week we learnt all about her life and her fantastic Harry Potter books.

Keep checking back for regular updates on all the exciting things we will be doing throughout the year!

Healthy Eating

This week the Rowlings have been looking at the different nutrients and which food we can find them in.  The children have designed and made healthy pizzas including a range of foods that include all the nutrients our bodies need to keep healthy.

As part of our new whole school topic, 'Life Around Us', Year 3 are learning about animals including humans. As part of our learning, the children got to visit The Deep in Hull. It was a fantastic day! The children had the chance to explore the breath-taking aquariums, complete an animals adaptations workshop and watch a dive show. The best part of the day was walking through the underwater tunnel and taking a ride in the scenic lift. 

We apologise for the photographs being dark and slightly blury, we couldn't use flash for the safety of the animals. 


Introduction to romans- Jan 2017

The last two weeks have been very exciting in Year 3! We all had to be archaeologists and carefully dig around some artefacts. We then had to guess which time period they were from using the clues- it was the ROMANS! 

We also had a special visitor, a Roman Emperor Claudius, who told us all about his life and his quest to conquer Britannia! We all got to ask him questions to find out more about him.

christmas party 14th december

Year 3 and 4 had their party this week! It was a fun filled afternoon. Everyone enjoyed playing pass the parcel, corners and we even gave prizes for the best dancers. Everyone looked fab in their best party clothes. We then went back to the classroom and had a shortbread Christmas tree biscuit and a drink of juice. Santa had even been and left us all a gift under the Christmas tree! All the children behaved fantastically! We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 

Churchfield's Imperial war museum 

This week we have been really busy! 

On Tuesday we held our Churchfield Imperial War Museum. It was such a great success and we've been working really hard to complete all our work in time for the museum. 

We also have been doing some cooking this week. We made corned beef hash WW2 style. It was delicious and went down a treat at the museum! 

Corey Has kindly written his own version of the instructions for you, as many of you have been asking for the recipe. 

How To Make Corned Beef Hash

           You will need:

        6 Potatoes

        2 Carrots

        Half a Turnip

        1 Tin of Corned Beef

       A dash of water for if it gets too thick

  1. First, carefully peel the potatoes, the sunset- orange carrots and the turnip so you don't cut yourself.
  2. Then boil the round, large potatoes, the sharp pointy carrots and the turnips for 10 minutes. Be cautious not to burn yourself! 
  3. After that, slice the leek into little, thin pieces with a knife gently.
  4. Next, cautiously cut the corned beef up into cubes.
  5. Immediately after, fry the leeks until they go all soft. 
  6. Then, drain the big yellow potatoes, the bright orange carrots and the soft, sweet turnip.
  7. Finally, mix it all together and fry it all for another 10 minutes.

           Now you know how to make corned beef hash! Enjoy!
