A BIG welcome to our 3E class page!
I am going to try my very best to update this page regularly to let you know what we have been doing each week!
Week Ending: 22nd September 2017
We have had another fabulous week! Here is what we have been learning about. Please see the maths and English page for those updates!
Science – in science we have continued our work on light. We have looked at the eye and labelled it and then described what each part does. For example, the iris is the coloured part and controls how much light is let into the eye. We then looked at what material would be best for curtains. We talked about the terms translucent, transparent and opaque and the children thought a material that was opaque would be the best! We then completed an investigation and tested different materials, recorded their results and analysed them. This was their first big investigation and they did brilliantly!
Computing – this week we read a fractured story on the three little pigs where the wolf told his side of the story. We decided that our movie was going to be based on a news report. We then created a story board for this.
French – we learned how to say hello, goodbye, say our name and ask how people are. We started learning a song on this.
Music – we continued our unit called ‘Let your Spirits Fly’ and have looked at what rhythm and pulse means; what R&B is and learned a new song.
PSHE (Jigsaw) – last week we learned what a nightmare school would look like so this week we looked at what a dream school would look like. We then compared the two and started to think about what our rights are in school but equally important what our responsibilities are.
We had a fantastic week with remembering stuff! The majority of us remembered our ties table books and spellings on Monday, everyone remembered their reading book and most handed in their homework. What a great start – I think it is the best start we have ever had! Keep it up!
Just a little reminder to remember to sign their reading diaries to say they have read their library book as well as their school reading book.
Week Ending: 15th September 2017
We have had a great first week. This is what we have done:-
Swimming – we had a great time swimming and the children are looking forward to next week. Just a reminder that they will need a swim hat if they are a girl. They were allowed to borrow them this week but will not be able to next week. Jewellery is not allowed which means that they will not be able to swim if they have earrings in.
Science. – we have started our new topic all about light. We have looked at the difference between a light source and a light reflector and we have investigated what material would be best to wear at night and found out that we should definitely have light reflectors on our clothes if walking in the dark.
PSHE - we have learned how to face new challenges positively, make responsible choices and ask for help when needed. Also we have been able to recognise how it feels to be happy, sad or scared and how to recognise if other people are feeling these emotions. We have thought about what a nightmare school would look like and how that would stop us being able to learn.
Computing – we have looked at chroma keys today which is another word for green screening. We have watched videos to show what they are and when they and how they work. The children are really looking forward to creating their own movies using a green screen.
Below are some photos from this week.
Week Ending: 8th September 2017
We have had a fantastic first few days in year 3 and the children have settled in really well. This week we have been learning about how year 3 works and all of the rules and routines we have. We have completed our first 'JIGSAW' lesson and Music lesson which the children both enjoyed!
In PSHE (Jigsaw) we wrote down something that we were proud of achieving so far and on the medal (see photos below), we thought of a goal we wanted to achieve this year and drew a picture of ourselves achieving it. On the back we wrote down words of how we would feel when we achieved it.
Just a few reminders for next week:
- We will be doing PE first thing on Monday morning so please make sure that PE kits are in.
- Swimming starts next Thursday. Please temember that the girls will need a swim hat.
- Parents information evening is next Tuesday
