    Healthy Eating

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    In year 3 we are looking at our diets and advising some people on theirs. We have become personal trainers. We've investigated how much sugar is in our diets and also talked about how we could cut down. We then discussed the five food groups. How much we should be eating of each one. This needed persauasion regarding how much sweet treats we should have a day. The children are learning the benefits of a healthy diet. Well done Year 3

    Hola!

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children were introduced to Spanish today. Hopefully this will encourage some bilingual chat in the future. We learnt how to say hello, My name is in Spanish. The children really enjoyed getting to know things about Spain and the language. Looking forward to doing more.

    Welcome

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Hello and welcome back! I hope you've had a brilliant summer break and raring to get back to school! We've started today off today talking about what type of learners we are and how we can set expectations for ourselves to achieve great things. This afternoon we were then introduced to our topic. Rampaging Romans! The children created a drama based on the Romulus and Remus myth of how Rome was formed. The children have come up with some brilliant questions for our topic and we are looking forward to finding out more! Well done on a great first day!

    Reading Records

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 3 children were sent home with their reading records today. As discussed in the letter sent to you all, the children are expected to read 3/4 times a week. We also require you to sign this record once a week. The children should then have these records and their books with them everyday. Every Guided Reading session, Mr Hart will then check to see that they are reading and that their parents are signing. We really appreciate your support with this. Lets create some super readers, linguists and feed those thirsty imaginations.

    Who was Mary Anning?

    Posted by Ms S Tough
    This week, we have travelled back in time to the early 1800s, to learn about the fascinating life of Mary Anning. Mary is significant to our topic, because she was the first person to discover and understand the importance of fossils. We planned our ideas for writing and then used the computer to present about what we have learnt using Purple Mash. We added images of fossils to complete our work.

    Transition Afternoon to Year 4

    Posted by Ms S Tough
    Today we took part in a 'transition afternoon', which means we got to spend some time learning in our new classroom for September... Year 4!! We were so excited to explore our new learning environment and to ask questions about our new year group. We had the opportunity to create a special portrait of ourselves, based on the cubist style of Pablo Picasso. We used some weird and wonderful shapes to create our portraits, exaggerating our features and choosing bold colours to bring our portraits to life. Ms Tough will be putting our portraits up on display in our new classroom during the Summer holiday for everyone to enjoy and marvel at when we return in September!

    Year 3 and the "Rock-olate" Factory

    Posted by Ms S Tough
    Today, we learnt about how the three main types of rocks are formed... using chocolate! First, we made sedimentary rocks by layering up milk and white chocolate crumbs (sediment). We had to press down hard to make a solid rock. Next, we made metamorphic rock. We had to squeeze the chocolate and use the warmth from our hands to help it change shape. We noticed the patterns and colour changing, too. After, we made igneous rock. We placed the chocolate container in warm water until it melted into lava. After, the lava cooled down to make igneous rock. Finally we enjoyed tasting our delicious, chocolatey rocks. We decided to name the activity "Year 3 and the Rock-alate Factory" after recently enjoying stories by Roald Dahl!.
