What are we doing in class?

Fantastic Finish 

Today ,Year 3 children enjoyed a virtual meeting with a group of tour guides at Stonehenge.  Over the last few weeks we have learnt lots about Stonehenge so this discussion secured our “Sticky Knowledge” and hopefully one day you will be able to visit in person.

Art - clay sculpture 

Today we enjoyed using clay to recreate this ancient monument, Stonehenge. 

Art - paper sculpture 

The children have made a fantastic 3d paper model of Stonehenge. 

Art -Biscuit-henge AKA Stonehenge

We have been learning about Stonehenge. We used biscuits to make models focussing on the formation and position of the rocks.

Well done to these two very busy young ladies. Both Harper and Amelia have been working hard on their math at home. Harper has learnt how to find fractions of amounts and Amelia has been practicing her long multiplication skills. Keep working hard girls.

Congratulations to Noah and Harper for being elected Y3 Sports council. Also congratulations to Maja and Archie for being elected School Council for Y3.

In English this half term we have been reading Fantastic Mr Fox, by Roald Dahl, we acted out parts of the story in drama. Harper also brought in her own picture of a fox spotted in her grandparents garden.

When Queen Elizabeth passed away, Year 3 were keen to send King Charles their best wishes and explained in their cards how sorry they felt for him and his family. 

In geography we have been looking at how Clayton Brook has changed over the years and what it was like when it was built in 1970.  Feel free to chat to your cildren about what it was like when you moved here or when you were growing up. 

During our latest visit to the library we collected lots of litter on the way, here is Kodi with the bagful. Well done to those children who still collect litter when out with their adults. It all keeps our community looking good.

Last week we really enjoyed learning to play Tag rugby with Andy the coach.

Here is some super art work in the style of Claes Oldenburg that Lena did at home over the weekend, after learning about his sculptures in Art. Well done Lena 

Here is Oskar with his application form to be the History Ambassador. Watch out for Maja's art work which she completed in hope of being Art ambassador.

ASDA Trip 

Year 3 visited Clayton Green Asda store to look at the fresh fruit and vegetables. We carried a Scavenger Hunt to look at where the fruit and vegetables originated from, example are they grown in the UK or overseas. The children had an informative question and answer session with Jo (Community Link officer) and Ian (Fresh Produce Manager).

Tropical Fruit Skewers 

ASDA kindly donated the ingredients for our skewers and the children made their own tropical fruit skewers on our return to school and they were yummy.

Joyeux Noel (Happy Christmas)
