Autumn 2 Week 4- Beware, Hunter-Gatherers at Cathedral School!

Star of the week: Yvette and Diane

In our history lesson this week, we became hunter-gatherers and found a variety of wild animals, nuts, seeds, berries and edible plants in the Peace Garden. During the early Stone Age, this was their only way of survival. They had to hunt for animals and gather other edible foods that were available. As a class, we then discussed how life during the Neolithic time (Late Stone Age) changed. A warmer climate and more rain meant that people could create settlements and grow crops. Pretending we were alive during the Stone Age, Class 3 wrote a letter to a friend explaining how much better life was. Class 3 worked really hard on their letters and included lots of subject specific vocabulary. Well done, Class 3!

Next week, we will be learning all about the well preserved Stone Age village, Skara Brae.

Autumn 2 Week 3- Spanish Day

Star of the week: Isabella and Henry

Class 3 had lots of fun during Spanish day, yesterday. After completing some sums in Spanish, we wrote an information leaflet about Spain. In the afternoon, Class 3 had a story read to them in Spanish, played some games that helped them to learn even more Spanish vocabulary and created a piece of Picasso inspired art. EXCELENTE, Class 3!

Autumn 2 Week 2- Shadow Hunting!

Star of the week: Sarah and Daniel

In Science this week, Class 3 were investigating how shadows are formed. We went on a hunt around the school to see if we could spot any shadows. When we found a shadow, we looked closely at what the light source was and the opaque object that was blocking the light. Below you can see some photos from our shadow hunt.

Next week, we will investigate how to change the size of a shadow.

Autumn 1 Week 7- British Fruit Salad

Star of the week: Sapphire and Luca

In Class 3 this week, we have been learning about instructions. In order to plan and write our own instructions, we prepared a British fruit salad and made notes on the steps. As a class, we thought very carefully about the imperative verbs that we could use, as well as making sure we carefully wrote down each step in chronological order.  After making the fruit salad, we got to try it! It was delicious!


Caring Friendships- Sharing a Shell.

Star of the week: Olivia and Yvette

Class 3 have worked together with Class 1 and 2 to create an amazing display. We read the book Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson and discussed what a caring friend is, and what they might do for us. Based on our discussion, everyone in Class 3 wrote a Haiku poem. In addition to this, we also made sea anemones. Look at our display below!

Autumn 1 Week 3- Which food groups are they in?

Star of the week: Marwah and Sebastian

As part of our learning in P.S.H.E, we have been looking at how to make the healthy food and drink choices.  Using the Eatwell plate, Class 3 looked at different meals and discussed which food groups they belong to. Class 3 found it really interesting to see that the ingredients in one meal can come from lots of different food groups. Here are some photos to show you part of our learning.
