We have had a truly exciting day today in Rowling class. Sports day this morning and bread tasting this afternoon as part of our D&T topic. Yum!
The PE days for Rowling class for this term are Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has their kit on these days.
This morning was Sports day for Key Stage 2. Rowling class wore our house colours with pride and competed in our house teams. The children showed great determination (even at the end when they were getting tired) and had lots of fun! Two of our class members won the running races too!
Today we have re-sent out the list showing our 15 recommended books for year 3 to read. If you read all of your books, ask an adult at home to sign your list and you will receive a well deserved certificate. There is a prize for the year group who has the most children who have completed the challenge. Its an amazing prize and we really want to win!
Today in science we dissected a flower to get a closer look at all the parts. We labelled them and discussed how each part contributed to the process of pollination.
Whilst the children were having a fantastic time, the staff tried very hard to capture it all. We have between us over 700 photos! We have put these into 4 sways for you to view. As the children were grouped across the classes, and then different groups worked together you will find the most photos of your child under the group number Sway.
Group 1 (Mrs Holland/Mrs Phelps) and Group 4 (Mrs Denby) were together
Group 2 (Miss Slizys) and Group 3 (Mrs Chisholm) were together
We hope you enjoy them
The Year 3 Team
Today we had some visitors to teach us a dance routine. We had great fun and were able to remember the whole routine on our own by the end of the session!
Well done to all those children who ran in the SdS park run after school. Your stamina and determination was an inspiration! Superb!
Today we became explorers and went inside an Egyptian tomb! ‘Howard Carter’ led the investigation and we saw some magnificent, ancient artefacts. We enjoyed some time studying the objects carefully, noticing things about them and thinking of ways we could describe them. Then Howard revealed the golden mask of Tutankhamun!
This term in maths we will be learning all about measures. Last week we focused on measuring the length of objects. Sometimes if two or more objects have been measured using a different unit of measure, we have to convert them. One example is if we have measured two pencils and one is 6cm long and the other is 30mm long. Here is a photo of us working as a team to measure a length of string.
