Welcome to Class Three!
Our class teacher is Miss Birch and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Fielding.
In our class we have 32 children, 20 year 3 and 12 year 4.
This year, we will also be taught for RE and Computing by Mrs Oddie every Thursday morning. Please visit our class page throughout the year to see updates and pictures of exciting things we have been doing in class!
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!
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to our new school term and the start of 2019. We hope you have all had a lovely break. To see what learning will be taking place in Class 3 this term, please have a look at our learning overview below as well as our new homework grid for the first half of the spring term. This term, we also have an exciting new lesson where we will be learning yoga. This lesson will take place every Tuesday so please make sure you have a pair of jogging bottoms, shorts or gym leggings on this day.
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.
Welcome back to our new term! This term we are starting a new topic which is called 'Earthlings' and we will be learning about all things space and science fiction! This term we will also be getting ready to celebrate Christmas so we have a lot of exciting things ahead.
Today we have had an exciting day because we had a special art lesson where we made clay poppies. We learnt techniques to make our poppy and then we were able to experiment with the clay.
Look at the picture below of our final poppy designs. What do you think?
Class 3- Blog
This term's topic is 'Water, Water Everywhere'.
We are writing a Kenning poem this week and last week we looked at Haiku poems. Haiku poems can be made up as long as it has 5 syllables on the first line 7 on the second/middle and five again to end.
We learnt about place value this week and last week. We have been learning to round digits to the nearest 10 and 100 and 1000 for Year 4.
In Geography we have been learning about rivers. So far we have stuck a map in and labelled all the important and well known rivers in the world. We even have names of rivers for our table names.
We are still on the water topic about river Nile and Egypt and the World War- we are exited!
