Year 3 as part of learning about The Amazon Rainforest and South America, the children made some amazing carnival masks.
In computing lessons Year 3 have been creating a game for Year 1 to play. To begin with a focus group visited Year 1 to find out what they were learning, what interests them and what sort of game they would like. Year 3 then created games using Scratch Junior. When the games were completed we shared them with Year 1. They loved them!
Year 3 have had another brilliant day. We spent the day at ‘Hogwart’s School’. We designed spells during Charms Class, completed shopping for spells investigations during Arithmancy and played Quidditch in P.E. We also made wands during ‘Spells’ class, created periscopes during Muggle Magic lessons and made Hogwart’s shields during History of Magic.
Year 3 have been exploring our Maths equipment. We designed lots of investigations and used the equipment to create lots of interesting Maths in our class. We used Clever Sticks to create a line 32m long! There was lots of estimating, measuring and excitement!!!
Mr Barrans joined our school on Wednesday to teach us some first aid. We dressed up in non-uniform to raise money for a defibrillator.
