Year 3 news...

Safer Internet Day

We had a great time working with One Day Creative in a spy themed e-Safety workshop. The session reminded us how important it is to have our own passwords, to keep our information private and to be respectful on the Internet.


Reading Buddies

Year 6 really enjoyed talking to their Year 3 reading buddies about different bullying scenarios.


Chester Zoo Trip

Here are a few pictures of the children enjoying the Chester Zoo Trip. We had a fantastic time looking at all the wonderful animals. We learnt so much about the different types of animals. What an amazing day and a lovely Christmas treat!


Anti-Bullying Production

Years 1 – 6 thoroughly enjoyed an anti-bullying production earlier this week. It was lots of fun but had a number of important messages. Can you remember what they were?

 


Art Inspired by Spain

Year 3 have been looking at different Spanish art and artists. We decided to replicate Miro’s wonderful designs using sharpies, pastels and ink to get the vibrant blues and greens. We also studied portraits using someone from our class as our inspiration. A child dressed as a Spanish flamenco dancer and we sketched and painted them. The last artist we looked at in detail was Gaudi; we worked hard to complete patterns that had a lot of different geometric shapes using pastels.

 


Science

We carried out a Science experiment using our hands and lots of marshmallows. We looked at whether the children with the biggest hand span could pick up the most marshmallows. We all made a prediction first and then recorded the results using a tally chart and a scatter graph.

 


P4C

We have been looking at our rights as children. We know that we have the right to an education and to learn in a safe environment. We have realised how lucky we are compared to children in other countries.

Beautiful Britain

For our Beautiful Britain topic Year 3 travelled around the countries of the British Isles. In Wales they created a fabulous daffodil. In Northern Ireland they crafted a shamrock out of clay and made a lucky wish. For England Year 3 enjoyed learning the ‘Lambeth Walk’. In Scotland the children tossed cabers as far as they could.
