Tremendous Timing in Year 3

Today the children in Year 3 began to time events in seconds and minutes. The children practised counting to a minute with their eyes closed and realised this is actually quite difficult. The children then used stopwatches on the iPads to time themselves taking part in a range of activities. They had a great time making towers of cubes, counting to 100 and completing head, shoulders, knees and toes 20 times.

Year 3 Dragon Dance Workshop

Today the children in Year 3 took part in a dance workshop. The children are taking part in a Dragon Festival on 27th May 2018 where the children are going to make their own dragon to parade with. The children in Year 3 were very excited when they learned that they were also going to move like a dragon. The children were taught a dance to help their movements in the parade and were then set the challenge in groups to create their own moves that they can use. We cannot wait to show off these moves in the parade and we hope lots of people are going to come and see us.

Reading week.

We had a really lovely day in Reception class celebrating the end of our reading week. Children brought in their favourite story books and some of our parents kindly came in to read these books to the children in class. We also enjoyed writing book reviews and dressing up as our favourite book characters.

No Pen Day

Year 2 had lots of fun this no pen day, as we read the dinosaur who pooped the past. We created a performance based on the book and presented it to the school. For maths we created pizzas, looking at finding 1/2, 1/4 and 1/3. They were delicious. We had lots of fun and did not pick up one pen all day!

Mona Lisa Masterpiece

As part of our reading week the children listened to the story of Leonardo and the Flying Boy. The children really enjoyed listening to the story and learned more about Leonardo da Vinci. The children were then set a challenge to create a display in a day. The children coloured in pieces of the Mona Lisa and then pieced this back together to create their own masterpiece. Their work was amazing!

Amazing Author in Reading Week

Today the children in Year 3 had a visitor. Mark Carton was in our school as part of our reading week. He read The Book Spy with the children and gave actions that they had to do as he read certain words. The children then had a great time solving riddles. It was great to hear from an author.

No Pen Day Performances

Today the children were not allowed to use pens. The children were told that they had to create a performance about an author from the past. The children in Year 3 loved learning about Dr Seuss and his stories. The children then used their performance time to tell their audience a little bit about Dr Seuss and then performed actions to his story Oh, The Places You’ll Go. The children loved Dr Seuss’ phrase…

The more that you read, the more you things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Finding the mass of objects

Today the children in Year 3 were able to use scales to find the mass of objects in our class. We discussed units of measurement we would use to measure objects and then chose items in the class. We estimated their mass first and then worked as a group to weigh these different objects.
