Year 3 Visit to Leeds Castle
We spent a fantastic day at Leeds castle.
After visiting the castle itself, we traveled by boat
across the lake, explored the adventure playground
and left enough time to enjoy an ice cream before returning
Father Victor visited year 3 to lead our class Mass.
The children sang and shared readings and prayers.
Thank you to Father Victor and to family members who
were able to attend.
As part of a week of events to celebrate and learn about
the differing cultures which make up our school community,
year 3 took part in a drumming workshop.
They learned how to create different sounds and rhythms, using djembe drums.
I wonder whether our taller classmates jump
further distances than our shorter ones?
This was the question posed for our comparative investigation,
during our learning in science this afternoon.
We used the measurement skills developed in maths,
to measure heights and distances jumped, accurately in cm and m,
using tape measures and metre sticks.
A visiting dance teacher, led a fantastic
workshop and taught the class a sequence
of moves to perform a Samba routine.
Here are year 3, performing their finished dance to the school.
Well done, everyone!
Our Class 'Pet'!
A surprise parcel arrived for the class...
Here we are, getting acquainted with our
pet sloth, Sparky!
Year 3 have created some inventive and informative science posters!
They enjoyed sharing what they had found out and celebrating their hard work.
Poos from the Past!
During science week, year 3 had some serious business (ahem!) to attend to!
The children became paleontologists and worked in teams to excavate
and search a fossil of a human poo to find clues which would help
them to identify which period of history it belonged to.
Each team demonstrated superb exploring skills.
Lots of fun and giggles were had, along the way!
Year 3 Class Liturgy
Thank you to friends and family who
were able to attend our class liturgy.
The children enjoyed sharing it with you!
Last week we began reading our new
class text 'Cloud Tea Monkeys'.
We took part in a tea tasting workshop and
enjoyed tasting a range of varieties,
including: Assam, Earl Grey and Masala Chai...
Tenemos Muchos Animales!
We have been learning the names of animals in Spanish.
Here we are, testing each other in pairs and practicing
Muy bien, year 3!
During our computing learning, we
programmed Beebots, using direction vocabulary.
In teams, we tested our algorithms
and corrected (debugged) them!
There was a special surprise for Raphael...
He was delighted to play Mrs Father's ukulele,
which happened to be decorated with a picture of
his most favourite super hero: Spiderman!
Going For Gold!
Year 3 enjoyed the visit from British Olympic sprinter, Dina Asher-Smith.
They listened carefully and were inspired by her determination, discipline and commitment to achieve her best.
I get by with a little help from my friends...!
We couldn't resist capturing these members of the class,
supporting each other during their maths learning.
We love to see learners encouraging and helping each other!
World Faiths Week: Judaism
During our RE learning this week, we have been
developing our understanding of the Jewish faith.
We learned a song called: Heiveinu Shalom Aleichem,(May peace
come to all of you) which is often performed on the Sabbath.
Here are year 3 performing the song in a
mixture of Hebrew and English words...
Stained Glass Windows
We learned about important symbols for Jewish people and
used these to design windows for a synagogue.
Year 3 Rock!
We had a lot of fun, comparing and grouping common
rocks, during our science learning.
The children took part in the 'Hard Rock Challenge' and
worked in teams to describe the properties of the rocks.
Year 3 worked together in groups, to investigate and compare
the effect of different surfaces, on the motion of a toy car.

It's raining, it's pouring...
We used our learning about life
during Stone Age times,to design
and make pots, using clay.
Year 3 are working hard by reading regularly at home.
This week's reading stars have read 4/5 times this week and
remembered to bring their reading record each day.
We are making excellent progress with our ukelele playing.
Here we are performing a song while marching!
Year 3 started off their afternoon,
with a whole class 'Fitter Future' workout.
A new scheme, to continue to support the promotion and development of healthy lifestyle choices.
This week, our class target is for each class member to try to log on at home and complete one workout!
Well done, year 3!

Year 3 Home Reading Stars!
Congratulations to our class home reading stars this week, for
remembering your reading book and reading record, each day
and for reading 4/5 times this week.
A huge thank you to your families for supporting you!
During our science learning about forces and magnets, year 3
worked in small groups to separate magnetic and non-magnetic
materials. They used magnets and sieves and there were a few surprises!
Our reading corner in year 3, is looking fun and colourful, now
that the children's wacky reading photos have been added.
We have had a lot of fun, sharing them.
Many thanks to parents and carers for supporting the children
This week, year three enjoyed their first ukelele
lesson. We learned about the different parts of
the instrument, how to strum and hold it.
