    Geography - Equator, Hemispheres and Poles.

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We began to look at the invisible divisions across the Earth and understand their purpose. The children had to retell their favourite fact about the short video clip and their were points for whoever remembered a fact that no-one else could. The winning fact - 90% of the Earth's water is in the Southern Hemisphere.

    We observed a 2 minute silence to honour those who have died at war. The whole school have painted rocks in various designs which have placed around the trees outside the school. We think they look beautiful.

    R.E - Christianity

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Has Christmas lost its true meaning? That's the focus of our enquiry this term. We began by playing a game of pass the parcel. Whoever the music (Christmas, obviously!) stopped on had to explain what Christmas meant to them. We had some amazing answers - spending time with family, going to grandparents' houses to have dinner, reading stories in Christmas pyjamas on Christmas Eve, finding the elf on the shelf, building snowmen and, of course, opening presents. It was brilliant to see that everybody providing an answer.

    Hook day

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    To fully immerse ourselves into our new theme, year 3 enjoyed lots of Christmas festivities today. We've put up and decorated our tree whilst listening to some all time Christmas anthems. We also thoroughly enjoyed making our own ice cream in a bag. Yummy.

    We have begun reading The Great Kapok Tree. The theme is about how all trees serve an equally important role, no matter where they are located, and that everyone should think more carefully about cutting them down or abusing them.

    Welcome Back

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Welcome to Term 2. Although our main theme is still the history of the arts, we will be moving away from The Stone Age and looking at how climate has played an integral part in changing our world. Our Polar Express theme map is now on the class page on the website.

    History - Understanding chronology

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    To help us develop our understanding of chronology we had to arrange significant events in the order that they occurred. We created a Stone Age timeline on the playground and were able to discuss this in the classroom using the words era, time period and chronology.

    Computing - E-Safety

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We took part in a great discussion about why we need passwords for our devices. The children came up with brilliant ideas about what makes a safe password and how to keep passwords safe. They found it hilarious that the most common password for adults was the word password!
