We are really enjoying our new topic about Rocks and fossils. We have been looking at collections that our friends have brought in and sorting other rocks into different types. We have learnt what igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary mean too.
This week is anti bullying week and this years theme is CHOOSE RESPECT.
We had an assembly about this and discussion in class. The main points were –
Respecting ourselves, property and each other
Being fair and kind
Being respectful of skin colour or religion
Respect is thinking and acting in a positive way
We looked at images and decided which is good and bad respect
We thought about ways to show respect .
What a brilliant day we had today as part of our ‘We will remember them topic’ the children were transported off and away from their parents and we spent some time thinking about how the evacuees would have felt and what happened to them next.
We heard the air raid siren and hid under our desks for safety.
We made litttle suitcases and filled them with the things that the children would have taken. We then made a start on our soft toys , we Cole ted our materials from the materials rationing shop and used our templates to calculate how much we needed.
We next discussed the ‘Choosing’ which is when the children we send home with different families.
We made feelings graphs to show how this would have felt.
we learnt war songs by Vera Lynn and then got ready for our street party in the afternoon.
well done everyone what a great day.
This week we a looking at protecting the ocean creatures as part of the whole school global week.
We started our week with a brilliant talk from Mrs Dunstan and we followed up her presentation with some work on the turtles.
We have been thinking about the effects of the environment and how humans are having an effect on some of the animals decline.
We have classified them according to their feeding patterns and today we went out side and measured the size of some of these beautiful creatures.
Here we are marking out the size of a blue whale.
We are very much looking forward to performing the dances later this week.
After a lovely summer we are very excited to be back and have made a brilliant start to our Year 3 adventure… so many new shoes and sparkly pencil cases 🙂
We have been enjoying the Iron Man and have been thinking about the story and characters. We have written a letter to the Iron Man from Hogarth apologising for burying him in the hole and we have had great fun doing some drama.
We have also been scientists and designed and carried out an experiment into forces . We investigated different surfaces to see which need the most force to pull a car across.
Wowee it is only Day 2 what a super beginning well done every one !
We had a fantastic day at the Air Tattoo: going inside huge transporter planes and helicopters; watching amazing air displays by the Red Arrows, the Swiss display team and several fighter jets which are so loud and much more.
We arrived just in time to see the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight from our coach and then straight to the nearest viewing area to watch the Red Arrows Display.
We then walked to the Techno Zone; on the way watching more brilliant flying displays, going on aircraft and eating lunch- ear plugs and defenders continually at the ready!
There was so much to see and do in the Techno Zone that we completely missed the downpour (the RAF100 fly past was cancelled) and before we knew it, it was time to make our way back to the coach, again via the vast array of aircraft. We went in a helicopter and also stopped for ice cream!
We collected stickers, posters and lots of fun but important facts on the way.
Thank you to Mrs Burley and Mr Reeve who helped look after Cherry Class with Mrs Barker and myself.
