We had a fantastic day for World Book Day, we created our own bookmarks to match our current Guided Reading book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We also enjoyed completing a few quizzes, including The Masked Singer and Book Catchphrases. Then we ended our day reading The Ickabog whilst enjoying a cupcake.
We had a great time working together to practice our handball skills. Mr Jackson showed us how important clear communication is whilst playing within a team.
We had a great afternoon creating our watercolour rivers.
Last week, Year 3 planned and designed their own robo-bugs. These designs had to include adaptations and features to help the robo-bugs complete their tasks e.g. exploration or construction.
As part of British Science Week, we are learning about the Met Office. We are using rain gauges to measure the amount of rainfall. We will continue to do this over next week and we will be making a graph to show how much rain fall there was on each day.
We had a great time investigating which items found in the classroom were transparent and opaque. We then finished the lesson off by creating our own shadow shows.
For Christmas this year, Year 3 decided they wanted to help some wild animals. The class all voted for the animal they wanted and the majority of the votes resulted in a polar bear being their first choice. Year 3 are very excited to receive more information in the post from WWF over the next year.
We’ve had a very busy afternoon making our calendars and Christmas decorations. You can buy the Christmas decorations for £2.50 via Parent Pay. They will make a great addition to any tree as each one has been individually designed and hand decorated.
