Term 5

Our Living History Day... We had lots of Egyptian FUN!

We prepared and cooked a healthy Egyptian dish as part of our topic. We practised chopping onions, coriander and cucumber, squishing chickpeas and measuring out different spices. It was really fun to make and yummy to eat! Mrs Fletcher taught us all about the nutritional value of each of the ingredients we were including too.

We practised the mummification process on oranges! We went through every stage of the process and wrote a set of instruction as we went.... it was very messy! 

We learnt all about hieroglyphics and created a cartouche with our name on!

Term 4

To finish our Science topic on Forces, we had to complete a Quest to design and make a tool that could move something without touching it. We used magnets and junk modelling materials!

Rainy weather won't stop our P.E lessons! We completed some Rugby circuits which worked on all the skills we have learnt this term.

We have thoroughly enjoyed reading 'The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane' this term. We listened to a chapter from the book and then illustrated the narrative as we pictured it.

For Science Investigation Day, we investigated types of magnetic materials, friction and gravity. We had a wonderful day setting up different experiments and working scientifically.

The theme of Maths Week this year was 'Enterprise'. We had £20 to buy materials and create items to sell on our Year 3 stall. The aim was to try and make as much profit as we could! We had a lovely week creating our items, developing advertising and understanding what profit is!

We helped Year 1 to make their Mother's Day cards!

For World Book Day, we shared a favourite book with Miss Ridgeway's Class. We enjoyed reading to them and listening to them read to us too!

Our Grown Ups came in to learn about Reading VIPERS that we use in our Reading Skills sessions. We then had a lovely time snuggling up with them and enjoying a book together.

Term 3

We had a visit from The Dogs Trust who taught us about dog safety. We got to meet one of their dogs too!

As part of our Science topic on Rocks and Soils, we had a go at seeing how many different ways we could sort different rocks using their properties. We also had a go at growing our own crystal!

We invited our grown ups in to teach them the written methods we use in Maths. We enjoyed showing them methods they probably never learnt at school!

We learnt about cave paintings and then had a go at creating our own. Can you see any stories in them?

Term 2

We had a talent show as part of our Christmas Party and then had a very special visitor who brought us some lovely class presents!

We investigated which materials create the best shadows and how we can change the size of a shadow. We then applied everything we had learnt to create a puppet show of the Christmas Nativity Story!

We played with and programmed Sphero, Dash and Beebots during our Computing lessons this term.

We made poppies and collages to think about Remembrance Day. The poppies were laid as part of our whole School Remembrance service.

Warburtons came in to help us learn about healthy eating. We also looked at how bread is made and then all created a healthy sandwich to take home.

We enjoyed singing some Gospel Songs with Gospel Touch.

Term 1

We had great fun in Book Week exploring the painting 'Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte' by Georges Seurat. We wrote stories, painted, created fact files and helped 1R too! We also had a theatre show by Quantum Theatre Company based on Harry Potter.

As part of our topic, we visited Valley Park Farm to learn about where our lunch comes from.

Check out our pirate themed dance we've been working on in P.E

We created skeletons to learn where bones are in our bodies and what their scientific names are!
