Ancient Greece dress up day
Year 3 started off their Ancient Greece day with an outstanding performance about a time traveller who took us back to Ancient Greece where we learnt lots of information about myths, gods, philosophers, the Greek alphabet and met some very humorous characters indeed!
World Book Day 2016
Year 3 had the most enthralling World Book Day ever! We discussed every single one of the characters that had made a special effort to dress up as. We took every opportunity possible to grab a book and read it either quietly or with a friend. We even acted out some of our favourite stories too! This was truly the best reading day ever!
Be sure to spend the vouchers wisely and please let your teacher know which book you bought!
Keep on reading and smiling!
What an exciting start to our year! We have been learning about weather and built our own weather station which resides in the playground. Children collect weather data daily and record it. Let's hope for warm temperatures!
Year 3 have kick started the year on a pre-historic time travel adventure! The children have been writing some very exciting and dramatic dinosaur adventure stories and are looking forward to our trip to the Natural History Museum next week.
We have had an exceptionally busy first half term! Year 3 have been on two trips: The Natural History Museum (see wonderful photos above) and our trip to the supermarket. The children thoroughly enjoyed planning their healthy meal in small groups using the Sainsbury's website. They had to keep to a budget of £5 per group so there was a lot of Mathematics brought into the task. In the afternoon, we prepared our meals and had a feast in the classroom!
Year 3 had a pizza sale to raise funds for our supermarket trip. We are very pleased to announce that we raised a total of £115!! We have pizzas left over so watch out for another pizza sale coming shortly!
Extremely proud of the cupcakes we made for the Macmillan coffee morning!
As part of our Science topic 'Animals, including humans', we designed an experiment to find out if the people with the longest legs jump the furthest.
Wow - he can jump a great distance!
Power of the Earth
Welcome back! We hope you all had a restful half-term. The children had an explosive start to English by writing firework poems. We looked at different types of poems including narrative and shape poems. The children really enjoyed using onomatopoeia and alliteration.
