Pantastic!
We loved being Lost Boys, Pirates and Natives in the KS2 production of Peter Pan!

We made a rainbow!
As part of science week we worked with Dr Hartwright in the Science Lab. She taught us how to use pipettes and challenged us to make a rainbow from just yellow, red and blue.

World Book Day
Look at our fabulous world book day costumes!
As you can see the most popular books in Year 3 are The Worst Witch and Harry Potter.

Assembly – February 2018
Well done Year 3 your assembly was AMAZING!

The chocolate button challenge!
To learn about collaboration Ms Fowler put down a bowl of chocolate buttons and gave us each a spoon. She said we could eat as many chocolate buttons as we wanted with a spoon but we weren’t allowed to bend our elbows – we had to keep our arms straight! After various tongue stretching, chocolate button catapulting attempts we realised the solution was to collaborate and feed each other!

WOW Day
Year 3 and 4 had an amazing WOW day based on their topic “The Firework Maker’s Daughter”. They all had a chance to make a shadow puppet and perform a shadow puppet play, learn about Tai Chi, prepare the vegetables for a stir fry and then eat it with chopsticks.

Thank you very much to the PTA for helping to fund this event.

Thank you also to Peggy Chung who taught us how to make a delicious vegetable stir fry.

The Night of the Seawigs!
After reading Oliver and the Seawigs by Phillip Reeve as our class book, we all made a seawig to wear to the night of the seawigs party. On our seawig we drew symbols from the last 7 years of our lives and decorated them with seaweed and shells.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Temperature
We have noticed how cold it has been getting recently but exactly how cold is cold?
Now we know how to use a thermometer, we will be measuring the temperature daily and keeping a record at the Year 3 Weather Station.

Stone Age Experience!
On Monday we were lucky enough to have a visit from Past Alive.
They brought with them lots of Stone Age artefacts, some of which were over 35 000 years old!
“I like it when we made a fire without matches!” Oliver
“They showed us everything about the Stone Age – I like it when we saw the animal skins.” Charlotte
“We even held two arrow heads!” Oscar

Many thanks to the PTA for funding this amazing day.

 

Writing Dialogue
Year 3 have been making huge progress with writing dialogue.  They have written and performed playscripts and learnt how to use inverted commas to punctuate speech.

Stone Age Timeline
Year 3 and 4 went out to the playground to create a timeline that stretched from 2017 right back to the Stone Age. Using a toilet roll (of all things) they managed to get it to scale: One sheet represented 5000 years!
