News of the Week
We have loved our Computing lessons this half-term. We took ourselves into the hall and created a model of a computer network. We also took our learning about food groups to a deeper level and classified different foods into the correct groups and discussed the effect that these foods have on our bodies. The children have also loved getting their final sketching products finished off. They look fantastic!
Year 3 have really enjoyed getting stuck into some scientific research about healthy eating and what our bodies need to survive and thrive. We have also started our final sketched product. Children have really loved the opportunity to create a detailed landscape sketch. We have also worked on improving our sending and receiving skills in PE this week.
We have been working hard this week to plan and start to write our first independent narrative. There were lots of excellent ideas and our class is very lucky to have so many brilliant young authors. We also took a look at the muscular system and how it works in our Science lessons. A fierce competition was held to see who could hold their arms out the longest. Mr Bull did not win!
We have had a great time in Year 3, this week. We have been working on improvising with chime bars in our Music lessons. We have also been focusing on using different textures and tone in our Art lessons. Lots of adults have been in to have a look at the excellent sketches that Year 3 have produced.
We have had a great time looking at how to sketch and shade using different techniques. We all made a fantastic attempt at a mountain landscape drawing and there are some excellent pieces in our books. We also took time in our Science lesson about the skeleton to measure our hands and our height and see whether there was a pattern we could find between the tallest children and those with the biggest hands.
Our first week together in Year 3 has been lovely. We've all had a chance to reacquaint with each other and get used to being back in the classroom. We had a great time making Stone Age cave paintings to decorate our classroom with. Our PE lesson was really fun. We had to work as a team to outmaneuver a defender.
