Magical Scenes in Year 3

This week we are exploring our new text, ‘Leon and the place between’. Today we had fun doing an imagination station to create a magical scene. We used metallic paints, sequins, glitter, feathers and much more.

 

 

Year 3 News

Year 3 have settled in well and have been enjoying their learning. This term we have had a greater focus on using concrete resources in maths to deepen understanding. The children have used the artist,  Andy Goldsworthy, as an inspiration to create their own natural sculptures and leaf collages

The children have also made their fantastic stone age clay pots which they used to inspire instruction writing in literacy.

Year 3’s Brazil WOW Day

To launch our exciting new topic of Brazil year 3 took part in a range of fun activities. We created Amazon rainforest birds using water colours and feathers, participated in Brazilian capoeira and created our own top trump animal cards after researching on the iPads.

 

Year 3 Enabling Enterprise

Last week year three had opportunity to work with the enabling enterprise team. They spent the day working in teams to create a social enterprise to help either the elderly, homeless or disabled. The children worked hard on team work and listening skills and aiming high. They thought of some fantastic and innovative ideas to benefit people in our society and showcased them to the year sixes at the end of the day. Well done year three!

 

Year 3 Trip to the Roman Baths

To round off our fantastic Roman topic, Year 3 visited the Roman Baths. The children participated in a range of fun activities including making mosaics, handling precious ancient artefacts and dressing up as Romans. We also got the opportunity to look around the museum. We all had a fun day.

Year three are enjoying our roman topic. We kick started our topic with a WOW day. We dressed up, had a Roman fashion show, explored Roman artefacts, learnt about Roman numerals and created our own mosaics.

 

Last week we got stuck in to science. We planned and conducted a range of experiements from making patterns in milk, bobbing raisins, making coins shiny, growing our own salt crystals and observing what happens when coke and mentos are mixed together. On Thursday we got the opportunity to exhibit our learning at the OSB science fair. Some of the children presented throughout the day whilst other set up and ran a science stall.

 

Year 3 enjoy learning circus skills

Year three stepped into the magic yesterday with a mesmerising performance by circus skills performer, Lucas Jet. We watched his fantastic show and then got the opportunity to practise some circus skills ourselves including; juggling, plate spinning, using flower sticks and the diablo. We had such a fun day!

A fantastic term for Year 3

This term, we have had a fantastic time learning all about wolves and their environment which was inspired by our book ‘Wolves in the walls’ by Neil Gaiman.  We went on our trip to The Wild Place, unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side, but that didn’t dampen our spirits. We learnt lots of fantastic information about wolves and other animals. The children especially loved seeing the cheetahs.

 

In Literacy, we used the trip to reinforce our learning and have written recounts and information texts. We have also launched ‘Pobble’ within the school, which gives the children the opportunity to have their work published. In Science, we have been learning about the human body, healthy eating and animal skeletons, amongst lots of other exciting things. Last week, we even made our own muscles using string!

Last week, we even made our own muscles using string!  In PE, we have introduced a new scheme which has been really fun. The children have been developing skills such as: Static and dynamic balance. They have worked really hard to progress through each colour. Maths has been full of fun things too; we have learnt how to handle data, find equivalent fractions and identify different types of lines. We even created our own Mondrian style pictures, which look fantastic.
