Please feel free to email Miss Mawson if you have any questions or would like to share completed work.
The aims of the project are:
The project focusses on four key questions:
Who am I?
Create a poster describing who you are: what do you look like, what makes you unique, what are your interests, what kind of values you have, what you want to be, etc.
Who are we?
Think about your family and school. What things do you have in common? Write a poem titled, My Family or My School
Where do we live?
Research Dewsbury and your local area. Think about its history and what it has to offer, e.g. museums, shops, market, canals, parks, leisure activities. Write a report including pictures and drawings, (Could be your house, church or Mosque.)
How do we all live together?
What community groups are there and what do they offer.
Produce an information leaflet with details of the activities.
As part of the project we are researching interesting stories behind where we came from.
Did you or do you know someone in your family or local area, who has moved here from a different town or even different country? What were the reasons for the move and what brought them to Dewsbury? Write, draw, or create a Powerpoint of a story of how you, a family member or neighbour came to live in Dewsbury.
If any children are interested in having a penpal from our linking school please let me know.

A huge well done to one of our super star pupils in Year 3 for entering the 500 Words Writing Competition. As a result of her contribution she will now be entered into a lottery to attend the final at Buckingham palace!
We had a great time at the Bagshaw museum learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We made a cartouche, sketched amulets, dressed up in Egyptian clothes and mummified a body!
Year 3 started off the new year by attending Multi Skills and Balance Bike training.
Year worked hard to divide numbers by 4 in maths using concrete resources to help them.
The Year 3 children had an eggcellent time helping to look after the chickens ready for the upcoming weekend. All the children were very brave and went in to the hen house to meet the chickens close up.
In year 3 we are using base 10 to support our learning of adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers from 3-digit numbers.
Year 3 turned archaeologists for the day. They observed artefacts, described them and made drawings.
We went on a fact hunt around the classroom to find out about Stonehenge and its significance in the Neolithic period. We recorded our answers and shared them with everyone.
Year 3 recreated the atmosphere of the night James climbed into the Peach. We used conscience alley to help James decide if he should go inside the peach or not. We had some very insightful responses!
