Swimming lessons have now begun for Year 3!
One of our Pupils’ left a fantastic trail of bread on their Hansel and Gretel walk.
We had a go at the Ping Pong challenge for School Games Week.
We have been very busy celebrating Science week. We made our own rockets and tested how far they would fly. We also had a live Q&A with Yorkshire Water. We learnt all about how water is cleaned and brought to our homes and how it is flushed away to be recleaned again.
As part of our Carry my story project we completed a coat of arms to show our identity.
Here are some examples of fantastic work being carried out at home!
We all enjoyed participating in our Christmas party and in the Santa Dash!
I had an exciting afternoon baking buns! Whilst measuring the ingredients I made sure I was counting on my fingers. I also learnt Makaton signs for sugar, butter, egg and flour.
Our experiment was to test biscuits by dunking them in milk to see which one was the best dunker. We found that the Pink wafer was the best.
I made a fruit Salad with little support, I was extra careful when using the knife and it tasted delicious.
In science we made compasses and discovered that a compass always points North.
We produced some amazing pieces of work for our Stone Age topic at home and at school.
Here are some photos from Year 3 having fun during National Maths week. We did a maths treasure hunt and a Pudsey bear board game using our addition and subtraction skills.
We performed part of our class book Pebble in my Pocket. We made sure that we used actions and our voices were expressive.
As part of our Black History Month we wrote about an influential Black People and one of the people we chose was Beverly Knight. We produced fantastic pieces of writing and received a wonderful message from Beverly Knight herself!
We have been working hard in maths to represent different numbers.
We have been drawing wooly mammoths and making 3d versions for our Stone Age topic.
We have painted a backdrop for our class book Pebble in my Pocket, focusing on sunsets.
We had fun decorating buns to raise awareness for the Macmillan charity.
To celebrate Black History Month we learnt about Martin Luther King Jr’s I have a Dream Speech. We then created our own speeches.
We promoted our love of reading by demonstrating the variety of places you could read a book at.
