    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today the children spent their RE lesson to discuss what Christmas means to them and consider what it doesn't meant to them. The children came up with some inspiring ideas, talking about spending time with family they don't often see and of course the brilliance of pigs in blankets. Joking aside the children did provide some really thoughtful ideas and considerate opinions.

    New Class text

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    After following some positive reviews on edutwitter, I have decided to take a punt on a new class text - The girl who speaks bear. Probably a little more advanced than a year 3 level but I'm hoping to inspire some great vocabulary. If you'd like to get a copy to read with your child, it is readily available from many bookshops online or in the high street. It is a lovely book and I'm really looking forward to reading it with the children.

    We spent some time looking at the famous events from 400 years ago. The children listened to the story of the Gun Powder Plot and gave some considerations to why the men did what they did. The children provided some brilliant opinions and considered many factors about the failed plot.

    Vivaldi

    Year 3 enjoyed some music appreciation today. We listened to Vivaldi, focusing on the winter part of the 4 seasons. The children drew pictures of what the music made them think about and how the famous piece made them feel. The children really enjoyed it and gave some excellent ideas regarding the music.

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    We have been practicing our catching and throwing skills in PE. We're getting ourselves ready for a handball comp between the class. The children still need some time nailing the basic skills but we hope to see this improve throughout the year. Well done guys

    Was Julius Caesar a great man?

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    This was the question that Year 3's were posed with today. The children had to use computers to research evidence on Julius Caesar to see if he was indeed a great man. We came to the conclusion he was great military man but maybe not a great a leader. The children have learnt how to use websites effectively and also to check reliability of sources

    Gymnastic performance

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    We have been practicing Gymnastics all term, looking to balances and travelling. The children have tried every hard with this. Today we had a go at mirroring a partner and completing a canon (where you complete the same movement with a delay). The children gave some great performances and worked hard to master their routines. We had great fun and the children enjoyed watching each other perform in front of the class. Well done!
