Welcome back to school everybody!
Class 3 is made up of 21 Year 3 children and 10 Year 4. We are usually taught by Mrs Pye and Mrs Fielding.
However, Mr Parsons will be teaching temporarily in Class 3 while Mrs Pye is on maternity leave.
Keep an eye on this page for learning overviews, information, photographs and news about everything that will be happening in Class 3 this year.
Take a look at some of the great learning you can do in Class 3.
Samba Group Performances
In music this week, we have worked in our team point groups to individually compose a short piece of samba music. Please watch and listen to our group performances and let us know what you think!
We were very lucky to have a visit from Reverend Roland this Friday on the 11th October! Our topic in RE this term is 'Called Upon By God' and we have been looking at people who have felt a calling from God. We have so far explored Moses and Abraham, prophets from the Old Testament. We have also looked at Mother Teresa who did wonderful things in her life by helping so many people in need. This week, we have been thinking and learning about members of the clergy who have also felt called upon by God.
We prepare questions for Reverend Roland so we could find out more information bout how he was called, what happened and how he felt about it. We learnt a lot and are very grateful for his visit to Class 3!
We had a fabulous time on Thursday 25th April when we visited Mellor Church to take part in the 'Easter Experience'. We visited different stations which helped us learn and reflect on the events of Holy Week. Class Three would like to say a HUGE thank you to everybody who helped organised this brilliant afternoon, we loved taking part in the activities! Please have a look at our photographs to see what we got up to.
To end our topic 'Food, Glorious Food!' we baked our own hot cross buns and we enjoyed devouring them, as you can see! We have been learning all about food around the world and as part of our DT learning, we tasted and evaluated current products from supermarkets to help us design and create a recipe to make our own bun. We were able to apply our maths skills of measuring to make sure we followed our recipe accurately!
We have been doing so well with our music lessons that we have now moved on to writing our own music and creating patterns. Have a look at our note formation!
We really enjoy sharing our homework each week with other children in the class. We have been enjoying giving feedback and discussing each other's ideas.
Our homework always links to our topic theme and this week we had to design and create a menu using expanded noun phrases. We watched an M&S food advert before we started which gave us lots of ideas and inspiration for our own menu!
We have been monitoring the effects that different liquids have on the shell of an egg. In our experiment, the egg shell represented the enamel of our teeth and we were investigating how liquids with varying amounts of sugar would change the egg. Have a look at the photographs to see what happened at the end of the experiment!
We have definitely enjoyed learning about teeth this term and how important it is to look after them.
This week, our School Council asked each class in the school to spend a morning limiting our resources and sitting in rows to imagine how school life can be around the world, particularly in countries where they don't have the luxuries that we have and quite often take for granted.
We had to share our pencils, we couldn't use our interactive whiteboard and our usual equipment was very limited. Although it was difficult, it made us realise how fortunate we are in our school and we also thought of ways we could help those in need.
We also got some brilliant collaborative work out of it!
This week at school, we have enjoyed creating our own special remembrance garden in the school playground to honour those who died in WW1. We have painted pebbles to display in the area and we have dedicated a special bench to the fallen soldiers of the war. We are going to use this area as a place to think, remember and reflect.
