This week in Music we learnt another new note on our toot! We are having lots of fun learning how to play out toot.
To celebrate Black History Month, Year 3 looked at Rosa Parks and how she stood up for the rights of black people. We looked at the scarifies she made and how this was a big turning point.
As a class, we agreed on how important it is to treat everyone equally and fairly.
This half term we have been reading David Walliams’ book, Billionaire Boy. Last week, we wrote a piece of direct speech between Bob and Joe in the style of Walliams and acted our the argument in pairs.
Over the last few weeks, we have had a visitor from Relax Kids join us every Thursday. She has been teaching us different ways to relax, including breathing techniques and stretches.
During one of our History lessons, we focused on the work of Emmeline Parkhurst and the Suffragettes. We created our own Suffragette posters during this lesson and marched around the school field, imagining how the Suffragettes would have felt over 100 years ago as they took part in demonstrations. Some also gave their own speeches, hoping to encourage others to join them in the march.
In D.T, we have been exploring the different types of structures in Italy including the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Colosseum.
For the end of the term, Year 3 chose to watch Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. They even had two special guests!
In Geography this half term we have been researching Italy. We really enjoyed using Google Earth to explore the streets of Rome and London. We then compared the two cities and discussed where we would like to visit.
