Class 3

In maths, we've been learning about angles. We went on a hunt for obtuse and acute angles in the playground.

Jubilee celebrations

We have combined our Maths and Geography topics to collect data about our local area. We learnt how to present our data in pictogram and bar chart forms.

The next stage of our printmaking lessons... experimenting! Most of us found that the string worked best and that you needed a thin layer of paint to get the most detailed, precise prints.

In art, we are exploring Victoria Willmott, who is a printmaking artist. We made collagraphs out of cardboard and will experiment with printmaking over the next few lessons.

Spring term RSHE letter to parents

We went to see 'The Knitted Bible' exhibit at the church today! We loved hunting for the Bible stories that we had learnt about... which ones can you spot?

We had The History Man come in to teach us all about the Stone to the Iron Age today. We had a fun, interactive experience and learnt so much about how people lived.

Crazy hair day!

World Book Day 2022 - look at our amazing costumes!

For their homework, some children decided to make models of Stone Age houses. Look how amazing and creative they are!

In RE, we have been learning all about Hinduism and trying to understand what it is like to be a Hindu in Britain today. We had the opportunity to email a believer and she sent a home shrine and diyas into school. We were so amazed by what we saw!

Class 3 became hunter-gatherers today, throwing spears (javelins) at Stone Age creatures and gathering different berries and plants.

How do you mix brown with only primary colours? We did an investigation into how many browns we could make...

Making Christingles for the Children's Society 2022

We used our class timeline and toilet roll to develop our concept of chronology. Each sheet of toilet roll was worth 100 years. We then used our space helmets to travel back in time to these places and spoke about what we could see, hear and smell...

Here are our finished felt sea creatures! Look how amazing they are. Miss Brooks, Mrs Powell and Mrs Prior are so proud of us!

We had a DT day where we all learnt how to sew and designed sea creatures to end our Water topic.

Look at how hard Year 3 are working on a treasure hunt to find their 3, 4 and 8 times tables!

In RE today, we looked at pictures of the next section of 'The Big Frieze'. We thought about what we could see and what clues this gave us. We then found the story of the Fall in our brand new bibles (thank you Reverend Gary!). We had so much fun exploring them and learning how to find specific books, chapters and verses!

We have read 'Flotsam' (a wordless picture book). We found these strange trays of flotsam and used our detective/inference skills to work out who might have left these things behind. Who do you think it could have been? How old might they have been? What job could they have done?

We did a science experiment today to find out which chocolate melts the fastest out of white, milk and dark chocolate. We thought carefully about how to make it a fair test and recorded our results scientifically. Turns out, dark chocolate melts the fastest and white chocolate melts the slowest!

We have started a new RE unit about the creation story. We looked at this section of 'The Big Frieze' to try and work out what our unit would be all about!

Our final J. Vincent Scarpace abstract inspired pieces! We used complementary colours, experimenting with painting and printing then worked into them with oil pastels. Look how fab they are!

Our artistic process... we have been looking at J.Vincent Scarpace’s work. We identified features, learnt about colour theory and how this applies to his art, experimented with materials and designed our final pieces.

We wrote and performed a poem about recycling inspired by Shel Silverstein’s ‘Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout’. (Part 1)

Class 3 2021-22

For homework, we had to design glasses for Iris (the short-sighted mermaid in our story). Some of us decided to make glasses. Iris would have such fabulous choice!

We have been reading Oliver and the Seawigs. We made our own seawigs and roamed around like the roaming islands. This will inspire our writing.

Autumn letter - routines and expectations

Today, Katie from Worcester Warriors came to teach us how to play rugby. We had so much fun!

In Science, we investigated soundproofing by making our own headphones and listening to newsround. We used paper, cotton wool and sponges inside the cups and we were surprised that paper was the best material for soundproofing!

RE: How do people try to make the world a better place?

Our homework was to find out about the different houses in Roman Britain. Some of us decided to make models - look how amazing they are!

In Science, we've been exploring sound. We made pan pipes to show how the length of an instrument can alter the pitch.

In Maths, we are learning about finding fractions of quantities. We used cheerios and bar modelling to help us do this. It was very hard not to eat them!

Look at our fab mosaics! As part of our Roman topic, we have been learning how mosaics were made. We experimented with printing techniques to design and paint our own.

In the event of teacher absence due to COVID 19

In the last week of term, the children worked really hard to make SPAG booklets to help Jemima, our elf on the shelf. She struggled with her writing but with their fantastic effort, she made a huge improvement!

Class 3 met Father Christmas today!!!

We finally unwrapped our mummified tomatoes. We were surprised that they hadn't gone mouldy or rotten and instead had leathery, wrinkled skin!

In DT, we made our own shadufs

We had a visit from The History Man to teach us all about Ancient Egypt. We looked at exciting artefacts, dressed up, made scarab beetle amulets, pretended to be slaves building pyramids and even got mummified!

We learnt about the process of mummification by mummifying tomatoes today! We will use this experience to write instructions.

We used our problem solving skills to make prototype shadufs in DT

Pyjama Day for Children in Need!

In English, we read 'The Egyptian Cinderella'. We acted it out and wrote our own stories from the Pharaoh's point of view to put in a class book called 'Pharaoh's Journey'.

We designed and painted our own Ancient Egyptian tomb paintings

Little Miss Bee written by Neve

 

Verse 1:

Little Miss Bee sat on a tree eating her beans and toast,
Along came a frog,
Who jumped on a log,
And looked forward to his roast.

Verse 2:

Little Miss Bee had finished her tea,
And the frog had finished to,
So they walked off together,
And then found a feather,
And then the frog went, “atchoo!”

Welcome to Class 3

 

Mrs Mitchell is our Class 3 teacher, Mrs Powell and Mrs Prior are our teaching assistants. We look forward to working with the children and their parents throughout the school year.

 

Class 3 is shared by children in Years 3 and 4.

 

In Class 3 the children cover lots of different topics from Ancient Greece to The Rainforest. They are all extremely fascinating and exciting. Also, it gives the children the opportunity to explore, question and discover.

Class 3 Routines

  • Homework – is given out every Friday and needs to be handed in by the following Thursday.
  • PE – we have two PE lessons every week. Full PE kit is expected to be in school at all times this includes; PE shorts, PE top, trainers, tracksuit bottoms for colder weather. Girls will need a spare pair of socks.
  • Children in Class 3 go swimming in the summer term.
  • Spellings – we have a spelling test every Friday, please read through the spellings with your children.
  • Reading – it is vital that children read at least four times a week outside of school. It will really help them to progress in all of their subjects, especially their writing. Ideally, children should read to an adult who can ask questions about what is being read.

WHEN WE BEGIN TO READ, WE BEGIN TO FIND THE WORDS TO WRITE

Well-being afternoon

Before half term Class 3 enjoyed an afternoon exploring their own well being. We enjoyed a presentation of inspirational pictures with some  beautiful music  and then discussed which were our favourites and which scenes  helped us to feel calm or inspired. Later we designed our own very special un-worry islands which we could explore in our imaginations. Some of our islands had special places to live such as tree houses, magic caravans, lighthouses or caves. We included people or animals that we could visit and many of our islands had fabulous features such as magical playgrounds, cafes which served unlimited ice cream and pirate ships to explore. After that we went outside to try some cloud watching on the field and played games to help us to work as a team, have fun and stay fit. Back in the classroom we listened to some calming music, sang some of our favourite songs and completed some artwork. It was a great afternoon and we found lots of ways of feeling happy and calm.
