Spring 1 Week 1- Basketball

Star of the week: Helena and Luca

During our P.E. lesson this week, we started practising our Basketball skills. Firstly, we completed a throwing and catching challenge which required us to focus on not dropping the ball! Then, we moved on to dribbling the ball by bouncing it with our hands. All of Class 3 worked really hard on all of these skills. Well done, Class 3!

Next week, we will begin to work on our shooting skills.

Super Structures!

Before the Christmas holidays, Class 3 designed and built their own structures. The criteria for their structure was as follows:

  • It needed to be at least 80cm tall  and 20cm wide.
  • It needed to be able to support itself.
  • It needed to be stable.
  • It needed to have an eye-catching design.

After they had made and decorated their structures, our guest judge (Mr Scott) came in to test them. Here are some photos of the structures, and them being tested.




Autumn 2 Week 7- Museum of London

Star of the week: All of Class 3

Yesterday, Class 3 went on a trip to the Museum of London. As a class, we visited the London Before London exhibition to find out lots of information about Prehistoric Britain. We also saw artefacts from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and the Iron Age. The photos below show us in the museum, gathering all of our research!

Next week, we will use this information to create a PowerPoint about our history topic this half term.



Autumn 2 Week 6

Star of the week: Mazin and Maidie

In our maths lessons this week, Class 3 have been learning about division and multiplication. We have used useful resources like counters and cubes to represent different groups of a number. In addition to this, we have used pictorial representations, bar models and number stories too.

Autumn 2 Week 5- Baaaaaaaaa!!!!!

Star of the week: Ethan and Iyad

This week, Class 3 made some very woolly sheep as part of our Christmas display. They used lots of different skills to make them, including collage.
Watch this space for a photo of the finished display.

Next week, Class 3 will continue with their Design and Technology work on structures. In pairs, Class 3 will be designing their own super structures!

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!
