    This week Year 3 have continued their learning journey about Hinduism. They have revisited the concept of Brahman and how they are everywhere and everything, and represented by the many Hindu Gods and Goddesses. This week we took a closer look at the Gods and Goddesses who aren't part of the Tri-Murti and used top trumps as a way of learning some facts about these deities.

    Science - Roots and shoots

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We are currently setting up two investigations as part of our current unit. We have planted sunflower seeds in soil and have left them outside to grow. Inside the classroom, we have placed some broad beans into a zip-lock bag. We will be hoping to see the the roots and the shoots growing from both and comparing the results.

    PSHE - Maintaining friendships

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    Today year 3 discussed how to maintain healthy friendships and what they could do if problems occurred. We first talked through some steps they may want to take when they find themselves disagreeing with their peers. This included listening to the other persons version of events and sharing their own version, considering how they have made each other feel, finding a solution and agreeing on the solution. We then looked at various scenarios where arguments may occur and year 3 came up with multiple ways to solve the issues. As ever, the class came up with so many great ideas that I hadn't even begun to imagine, and discussed the topic really maturely.

    Music - Three Little Birds

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We have started our reggae unit by listening to and appraising the Bob Marley classic Three Little Birds. We took part in the bronze challenge by finding the beat and trying to repeat various rhythms. Year 3 love this challenge and are always keen for the next challenge.

    RE - Can you identify different roles you play in society?

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    Year 3 are learning about Hinduism this term and leading up to understanding how there are many forms of the Hindu God. This lesson they spent some time identifying all the different roles they play in life. They came up with ideas such as son/daughter, cub/brownie, friend and pupil. We then used a net of a cube to represent these sides of us!

    New Reading Text

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    The latest mind-blowing novel from award-winning author Christopher Edge, Escape Room is a thrilling page-turner that challenges readers to think about what they've done to save the world today. Edge is a Gloucestershire author and I hope this fast-paced adventure is going to inspire year 3 to check out his other stories.

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We have started our athletics unit by discussing the events that make up track and field. We had a focus on various throwing and jumping techniques this afternoon. Year 3 set themselves a standing jump challenge which they will try to beat each week. They also had a go at seeing how different the hammer, discuss and shot put throws are.

    Music - Eurovision

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We listened to and evaluated several famous entries from Eurovision Song Contests of the past. We had to sequence them in chronological order and explain why we liked (or disliked) each piece. Sergey Lazarev - the Russian entry from 2016 - was our clear favourite.

    RE - The Easter Story

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    The children have been retelling the Easter story. They have had to try and explain why Jesus and Judas acted the way that they did. They could present their work however they chose. We all love the comic strips the most.
