Autumn 2 Week 5 – Science

Stars of the Week: Elena and Maxwell.

In Class 3 we are really enjoying our Science lessons! This week, we learnt about how shadows are formed and we made shadow puppets to help with our understanding. We had lots of fun designing our own puppets, cutting them out and using the torches to create shadows.

We have also been very busy learning the songs for the Cathedral Service which is on Tuesday 6th December – we hope to see you all there!

Autumn 2 Week 4 – Gymnastics

Stars of the Week: Lola and Younis.

This week, we have had a very busy week in Class 3! On Monday and Tuesday we had lots of fun doing Cycling Proficiency! The rest of this week we have completed our assessments and shown off how much we know.

We really enjoyed our session with the gymnastics coach, where we practiced our skills on the equipment.

We have started to practice our song for the Cathedral service, we will practice this lots both at school and at home.

 

Autumn 2 Week 2 – School trip and Collective Worship.

Stars of the Week: Heidi and Jacob A.

We have had a very busy week in Class 3!

We have been busy practising for our Collective Worship which we are presenting on Tuesday 15th November. We hope to see you all there! We are very excited to show everyone what we have learnt so far in Class 3. I am very impressed with how quickly and how well everyone has learnt their lines.

We also went on a trip to the National Gallery on Tuesday (thank you again to the parent helpers)! Please see the below blog post for photos of our trip.

Next week in maths, we are moving onto subtraction using the column method.

National Gallery Trip

We had an exciting day visiting the National Gallery.

We completed a Van Gogh quiz, a word search and drew lots of sketches of Van Gogh’s work and other art that we enjoyed.

The class were amazingly behaved and I felt very proud to be their teacher.

A big thank you to Ava’s, Maxwell’s and Heidi’s mums for coming along!

Autumn 2 Week 1 – Science

Stars of the Week: Arabella and Rory.

We have had a very busy first week back after half term in Class 3!

In Science, we have started our new topic ‘Light’ and we learnt the definitions of translucent, transparent and opaque. We had lots of fun going around our classroom to find objects and then deciding what category each object fitted into.

We have also been busy practising for our Collective Worship.

The song we will sing is called ‘Bones’ by Jennifer Fixman/Miss Jenny and friends. You can find this song on Spotify or Apple Music. The lyrics are below. I hope you have lots of fun learning the lyrics at home!

From your head, to your arms, to your ribs, to your knees,
Bones are the skeleton that you can’t see.
From your hands all the way down to your toes,
Bones get big as your body grows.

Bones help your body to sit up straight.
Makes you wonder if calcium’s in what you ate.
Have some milk, yogurt, or cheese—
Anything from the milk group please.

Bones help your body to stand up tall.
Without them your body would just fall.
Exercise is great.
It helps bones grow, so don’t wait.

In your neck, in your hips, in your ankles too,
Bones are there supporting you,
Make your bones feel good.
Exercise and eat right like you should.

From your head, to your arms, to your ribs, to your knees,
Bones are the skeleton that you can’t see.
From your hands all the way down to your toes,
Bones get big as your body grows.

Autumn 1 Week 7 – English

Stars of the Week: Sam and Anusha.

This week in Class 3, we have finished our class text ‘Oliver and the Seawigs.’ We have all really enjoyed reading this text and joining Oliver on his adventure to find his parents. This week, we have written our own version of ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ from another character’s point of view. We then designed our own front covers and created a blurb.

We have had a lovely first half term in Class 3. We have all worked so hard and deserve a restful break over half term!

Autumn 1 Week 6 – PE

Stars of the Week: Jacob W and Evelyn

This week in Class 3, we have continued practicing our netball skills in PE. In partners we take it in turns to follow each other running and try to turn corners and change direction as quick as we can. We have also been practising our chest pass, bounce pass and overhead passes.

Autumn 1 Week 5 – Art

Stars of the Week: Yoki and Albert.

This week in Art, Class 3 ventured into the playground to draw sketches of the buildings that we could see. We drew multiple sketches in our Art book, focusing on the lines and textures of the buildings around our school. We then drew these up neater to stick onto our ‘starry night’ background.

Next week in Maths, we are moving onto addition and subtraction!
