Science

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.

Our Class Polar Bear

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.

 

Calendars and Christmas Decorations

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.

Nikolas

In English, the children took turns to sit in our hot seat and pretend to be Nikolas after he had discovered his papa’s red hat in the snow and answer questions asked by the rest of the class. They all did a great job imagining how Nikolas would answer the questions.

The Boy Called Christmas

Year Three had a very special visitor during one of their English lessons. It was non-other than Aunt Carlotta, the nasty cruel old woman from the book ‘The Boy Called Christmas’. The children enjoyed asking Aunt Carlotta lots of questions they had collected whilst reading the book. They then wrote their own detailed character descriptions of her. The children are very excited to see who will visit them next!

Digestion

We had a really good afternoon learning about teeth and their different functions and then we all made a model of our own teeth.
