Spring 2 Week 6 – DT Roman Structures

Class 3 have been creating model Roman Baths this term in DT! They learnt a range of joining and strengthening techniques, including how to make columns, supports and tabs. Once the models were finished, the class used Powerpoint to create fact labels for the baths then attached them to the models.

Some of the models, as well as our brilliant Roman newspaper reports, will be on display in class soon.

Here are some photos of the finished Roman Baths.

Spring 2 Week 4 – Spanish

Stars of the Week: Scarlett and Tabitha

This term in Spanish, Class 3 have learnt to say the names of ten animals! Tabitha and Scarlett joined in really confidently speaking and listening in Spanish this week, remembering to use the correct article ‘un’ or ‘una’. Muy bien!

Next week in Class 3… we will continue our learning about magnetism by creating our own temporary compasses!
Year 3, please bring in plastic milk bottle tops to help with this.

Spring 2 Week 3 – Science Experiments and the Museum of London!

Stars of the Week: Ava and Masroor

Class 3 have had such a busy week creating artwork for our Book Week display; conducting science experiments into magnetism; then visiting the Museum of London to learn about Roman London. Well done to Ava and Masroor for investigating the past with so much enthusiasm and attention to detail during our trip.

Please see below for photos of our visit and our science experiments. Check the blog next week to see our finished Book Week display!

We found out about the Roman invasion of Britain and the Roman way of life by investigating the artefacts on display at the Museum of London.

We conducted some experiments to prove that magnetism is a force that can act at a distance.

Next week in Class 3… We will continue learning about the Romans in DT as we construct model Roman Baths!

Spring 2 Week 2 – Book Week!

Stars of the Week: Mason and Rosa

Class 3 have had a fantastic time celebrating Book Week!

We read ‘Portrait of a Dragon’ by Moira Andrew, and used her poem as inspiration for our own dragon poems. First, we gathered lots of vocabulary using magazine cuttings, house paint samples and photos of the natural world. Then we thought about how to emphasise our favourite words and images with the way our poems were laid out. We also thought carefully about how poems sound when read aloud.

Here’s a video of some excerpts from our poems. The completed poems will be on display in the corridor, in a class book and on our blog next week. We hope you enjoy them!

We’ve really enjoyed being buddy readers in Nursery this week, and have been following the egg hatching in the library with great excitement! Here are some photos.

Here are our wonderful costumes!

Spring 2 Week 1 – Fantastic Fact Files

Stars of the Week: Rosa and Scarlett

This week in English, Class 3 has been working on researching and writing non-fiction texts about wildlife. Scarlett and Rosa both did an excellent job of researching their chosen animal, then turning their mind map into a non-chronological report.

Next week in Class 3… it’s Book Week! We’ll be taking part in a wide range of book-related activities, and look forward to dressing up for Book Day on Friday!

Spring 1 Week 6 – Stop-Motion Animation

Class 3 have been learning about stop-motion animation in computing this term and have created some dinosaur animations.
After creating a storyboard and designing backgrounds, the class worked with the iMotion app to capture their stories. They then exported their animations into iMovie to add text, sound effects and music. We hope you enjoy them!

Spring 1 Week 6 – Safer Internet Day

Stars of the Week: Astrid and Gabrielle

Class 3 thought very carefully about how to be respectful and safe in online games during Safer Internet Day on Tuesday. They worked together to answer the Safer Internet Quiz, which can be found here.

They then created a character to be a Gaming Guide, who would offer advice to players about gaming safely. Here are some examples:

After half term we will be beginning a new history topic on Roman Britain!

Spring 1 Week 5 – Candlemas

Stars of the Week: All of Class 3!

Well done Class 3 for leading Candlemas in the Cathedral so professionally on Wednesday. The prayers and reflections were very thoughtful and your confidence shone through. A fantastic first Cathedral service!

Family and friends, please enter the password on the following post to view photos.

Next week in Class 3… we will be continuing to practise multiplying 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers in maths.

Spring 1 Week 4 – Preparing for Candlemas

Stars of the Week: Cameron J and Hudson

This week, Class 3 were very lucky to have a visit from Father Andrew Zinhi from the cathedral, to help us prepare for the Candlemas service. We found out about the story of Simeon and Anna and reflected on the meaning of Candlemas. Well done Cameron and Hudson for writing such thoughtful prayers and reflections! Class 3 is really looking forward to leading our first service in the cathedral soon!

Next week in Class 3… we will be completing our prehistoric-inspired jewellery in art!
