We loved our topic Exploring Light.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summer Fair

 

Class 3KC embraced the spirit of the season at the school Summer Fair, even though the rain did make an appearance, and loved taking part.

 

 

 

Drawing On The Ceiling

 

Much fun was had when year 3 children were allowed to draw on the underside of their tables. They were pretending to be Stone Age people, and had turned the tables into a cave and had a go at painting on the ceiling of their prehistoric home. As a bonus activity some children hunted the field for sticks and tried to paint a picture using these.

 

 

 

 

 

Queen's 90th Birthday Celebrations

 

Year 3 enjoyed celebrating the Queens' birthday, holding our own afternoon tea party. It was a fabulous afternoon - the weather was amazing and the children had lots of fun marking the occasion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summer Topic

 

As an introduction to their new topic, Scavengers and Settlers, the children took part in a scavenger hunt, imagining they were early man scavenging for food and water.

 

 

 

 

Having Fun in Gymnastic Lessons

 

In gym lessons year 3 has been learning how to squat on to a vault, how to do dips and kicks along a bench and worked on balances.

 

 

 

 

Chocolate Topic

 

Lucky year 3, their current topic is Chocolate. They have been taste testing eight different types of chocolate and raw cocoa beans. They have written descriptions of the taste and texture of each one, and also scored them out of 10 as to how much they liked them.

 

 

 

 

 

Period of Reflection

 

The children have been exploring the outside area of reflection and the symbology of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

 

 

Festive Performance

 

Year 3 put on a great show at Christmas, called Straw and Order.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If You Go Down to the Wood

 

The children did a story-telling workshop for a morning at the Foundry Wood managed-access community woodland in Leamington Spa. They were able to explore the secure woods on their own and then went on a colour hunt to see if they could make a rainbow from things they had found. They then had to create a picture frame and tell their own story to the other children.

 

 

 

 

 

Cooking Up Instructions

 

 As part of literacy work on writing and reading instructions the children worked in groups to design and make their own bread roll from scratch.

 

 

 

 

 

Egg-citing Work

 

In science year 3 made vehicles using a variety of technology equipment including saws and glue guns. The children then had to carry out a test to see if their vehicle would travel a set distance and safely transport an egg.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chocolate Heaven

 

The children have done chocolate tasting and describing, and they made chocolate muffins to explore following and writing instructional texts.

 

 

 

 

 


Waxing Lyrical

Eye Can See Learning

 

The science work continued with experiments the children devised to test their friends' eyesight. They had to make predictions, as well as making sure their tests were fair.

 

 

 

 

 

Foundry Wood Adventure

We went on a trip to Foundry Wood for a story-telling session. We made woodland perfume, and the children were able to explore the wood on their own as the area is secure. They also made stickmen and built a house for them, creating lots of opportunities for talking, making up stories and imaginative role play.

Earth Shattering

 

Year 3 showed off their knowledge at the end of their Active Planet topic with a fantastic display of their expertise and work relating to volcanoes, tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes. The scientists demonstrated erupting volcanoes, artists talked through their vibrant and creative pictures, and authors and poets shared their adventure stories and shape poems. The visiting adults were challenged to create a structure that would withstand an earthquake.
