Printing with Colour and Texture
Thursday 14th October
Today we continued our unit of work on printing by exploring colour and texture. We used Lego bricks, corrugated paper, a football, cubes, cotton reels and polystyrene tiles to make different patterns in our sketch books.
Wednesday 13th October
Thank you for all of the contributions so far to our 'Extreme Reading' display. This is up in our spare classroom to inspire reading and show off some of the children's favourite (extreme!) reading spots! Mrs Walton will also be making a whole school display after half term. It is not too late to send in your photos to add to our wall.
Fancy Dress Day
Friday 8th October
Thursday 7th October
We had a great time in Art today using lolly sticks to carve patterns into polystyrene tiles. We then used a roller to apply paint to our tile before printing into our Sketch Books.
Tuesday 5th October
Today we had our fourth session with Charlotte from Happy Humans. It has been so lovely to see the children's enjoyment and relaxation during these sessions grow since the beginning of September. Charlotte and I were particularly proud today as the children gave each other massages (with permission) whilst whispering positive affirmations to one another. We end each session with a guided meditation.
Monday 4th October
We are midway through a sequence of lessons focused on addition in Maths at the moment. As you have seen from the homework, we have mastered 'think 10' as a strategy and today we moved on to 'think 100'. Have a look at our brilliant work below!
How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth
Friday 1st October
We have started our next unit in English lessons this week, with a non-fiction focus on instructions. Our model text is How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth. So far, we have identified the features of instruction texts and started drawing our text maps.
The children had a fantastic time at scooter training last week. Please enjoy looking at some of the photos of them practising their scootering on the MUGA.
This morning, we were lucky enough to experience a circus skills workshop, where the children were encouraged to be resilient and give difficult things a go. I felt really proud watching all of the children try new things with a positive mindset, and of course have fun too! We tried plate spinning, walking on a tightrope, using diablos, balancing peacock feathers on our bodies, using stilts and more!
The children have shown great improvement in their basketball skills already this term! We have been practising dribbling the ball at waist height, using the right amount of power to keep the ball at the right level.
We began our first Art unit of work today. We experimented using different techniques with a roller.
W/c 13th September
We had our first Happy Humans session of Year 3 with Charlotte on Tuesday. We talked about how our bodies feel when we are excited and when we are calm. I was really impressed by how well most of the children were able to relax and enjoy the meditation at the end. We will have sessions with Charlotte every Tuesday afternoon until half term.
Welcome to Year 3!
W/c 6th September
This week, we have started learning our newest model text - a diary entry based on the Stone Age. The children have already come up with some fantastic, memorable actions to help us remember the structure and language of the text. I wonder if they can perform it for you?
