science centre

On Monday 21st May 2018 y3 went on a school trip to the Regional Science Centre. so what we did was we made some flowers boxes.And then we cut some tulips up and the teacher Miss Judge asked to look inside the flower.

At the end she did an experiment. What happened is she had a Bunsen burner, some matches, some liquid and a can. She put the can on the Bunsen burner with some liquid and the matches heated the can and she put the can in the water and the can got crushed.

This term we have been using our bows properly. Mr Lord has been showing us how to hold it correctly on the right string. To hold our bow we need to put our thumb on the bottom of the bow, curve three fingers around the top of the bow and then finally we put our pinky left on the end of the bow. Most of my class say they have improved the bow hold.

 

A couple of weeks ago we learnt how to pluck and now we are learning a piece of music called Can Can which has one half plucking and other half has bowing.

 

My favourite piece of music is Circle Madness but only the slow version because the fast version gets me muddled up!

Christmas Fair

Year 3 have made amazing chocolates in a bag and a homemade painted candle holder to sell for our business enterprise at the Christmas fair. It is a competition between all the classes to see who will make the most money. The candle holders and the chocolates both cost £1. The candles will light up your house. The chocolates can be hung on the tree and you can eat them. Please come to Thorp’s Christmas fair on Saturday 2nd December at 10am.

Class assembly

On Thursday the 12th of October Year 3 had a class assembly all the parents and family came to watch it.  It was all about pirates and our two trips Castleshaw and Saddleworth Museum and French. It was the first assembly this year  and it was fun and it was happy and we sang a French song. We practised this assembly and we wrote letters for are parents to come and watch it. They took photos at the end of the end of the assembly.
