Week 9 - 5.11.18
We have been using art to help us understand Remembrance and the 100 year anniversary of WW1. We created sunset watercolour back washes and then used black sugar paper to create memorial silhouettes. We think they are a fitting memorial to commemorate those who have fought and died for our country.
Lest We Forget

WEEK 7 15th OCTOBER 2018
UPDATE - MRS GREEN WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH OUR LETTERS THAT SHE SAID YES!!
We spent the afternoon watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with...
Our very own chocolate bars 😁😁
The children have been working on their questioning and letter writing skills in the hopes that they can persuade Mrs Green to allow the class to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. They have been working hard all term and have loved reading the book so they all have their fingers crossed that after reading their finished letters Mrs Green will decide that it's a well-deserved treat. Fingers crossed 🤞
WEEK 6 - 8TH OCTOBER 2018
Fruit Tasting - Thursday 11th October 1.30pm
Join us for a fruit tasting session in the hall as part of our project 'Scrumdiddlyumptious'.
We will be treated to a variety of yummy treats and hope to encourage the children to try as many new fruity delights as they can.
WEEK 5 1ST OCTOBER 2018
In RE we have been learning about Sukkot, the Jewish festival of harvest. We made Sukkah's which are used for the week of harvest. Jewish families live, sleep, work and play in the Sukkah for the whole of Sukkot.
This week's new spellings (01.10.18)
Remember - we test spellings every Friday, dojo points are available for those children who bring back their spelling sheet.
As we have been studying all things yummy in year 3, we thought the children could become star bakers for the day. We mixed up the two classes and the children spent the afternoon following a recipe to bake their own 'bread in a bag'. We will be using this experience to help them with instructional writing.
If you would like to have a go at baking your own bread in a bag, follow the link below
Fantastic factory visit!
To launch into our new project 'Scrumdiddlyumptious' year 3 went on an educational visit to the Morrisons Fish Factory. The children had an amazing day, finding out where their fish comes from, what happens to it on its way to the supermarket shelves, and were even treated to a sensational taste testing session. The children had very diverse tastes and couldn't decide which fish they liked best with salmon, smoked haddock and crab sticks coming top! It was a super trip which everyone enjoyed and really helped to excite the children about their new project back in the classroom.
