Summer 1 Week 4- Marvellous Maps!

Star of the week: Eayon and Remy

In Geography over the past couple of weeks, Class 3 have been exploring the local area. This week they were given the opportunity to draw their own map based on their knowledge from the previous lesson. The photos below show Class 3 using a map to walk down Union Street, along Southwark Street and back towards school via Borough High Street. Look at the bottom of the page to be see some of the maps they drew.

Great map reading, and map drawing skills Class 3!

Summer 1 Week 3- Why does a plant need a stem?

Star of the week: Annie and Aden

During our Science lesson this week, we looked at the functions of a stem. After looking at plants in the school garden we discussed why a stem is such an important part of a plant. The stem holds the plant upright, and transports water to the other parts of the plant.

Class 3 have now set up a super Science experiment. We are trying to prove that one of the functions of a stem is to transport water to the other parts of the plant. Look at the photo below, can you predict what might happen?


Summer 1 Week 2- The London Eye.

Star of the week: All of Class 3

Class 3’s Geography topic this half term is ‘Discovering Maps’, and we have been focusing on London. This week Class 3 went on The London Eye and were able to make observations about London from an aerial point of view. During our trip, we took lots of photos from different perspectives; drew some maps of the South Bank and planned a setting description. All of Class 3 worked really hard and behaved brilliantly, well done!

Below, are some of the photos Class 3 took whilst on the London Eye.

Spring 2 Week 4- Romans on the Rampage!

Star of the week: Leonna and Constance.

Inspired by World Book day, Class 3 wrote a setting description based on the book ‘Romans on the Rampage’ by Jeremy Strong. They used a range of descriptive devices, ambitious vocabulary and their knowledge of a Roman amphitheatre to set the scene for their description. Here are a couple of short extracts, followed by some photos.


As I enter the wonderful amphitheatre for the first time ever, the crowd roars with cheers as if they’ve known me for their whole life! I felt more confident knowing that the crowd was going to cheer me on.  I could see the grubby ground below me …


Positively trembling with excitement, I gripped the reins of my horses tightly. The colour of the jewels on the horses reflected off the walls. As I stepped into the oval- shaped arena for the first time, I felt excited and afraid at the same time. The pillars towered above me…


Spring 2 Week 2- Strike a pose!

Star of the week: All of Class 3

This week, Class 3 were lucky enough to have their photo taken as part of a project we are participating in. The ‘Tate Year 3 Project’ was created by a famous artist and film director, Steve McQueen. The photo that was taken is going to be part of an exhibition at the Tate Britain later in the year. Irene, the photographer, did a workshop with Class 3 before they had their photo taken. As a class we read photos and created freeze frames. Class 3 behaved wonderfully and out of the fifty schools she has been to, she said that Class 3 were the best behaved class so far! Well done Class 3!


Spring 1 Week- Collaborative Learning.

Star of the week: Samuel and Leonna

Class 3 have been working on combining their knowledge of the River Thames with their computing skills. This week, Class 3 were lucky enough to have some assistance from their peers in Class 5. With the help of Class 5, they added images, videos and transitions to their PowerPoint presentations. As a result, they all have an informative PowerPoint. Thank you for your help Class 5.

Well done Class 3, keep up the good work.
