Thanks to all parents who helped us create our Roman shields for our key skills a few weeks ago. Here we are testing them out in the ‘Testudo’ (tortoise) formation which the Romans used in battle!
It’s transfer week and we have had a lovely week working in our new year 3 class! We have been completing lots of maths investigations, powder paint artwork and writing a story so far. Today, a special visitor came to meet us and officially open the new year 3 classroom – it was Christian Day from the Saints!
We have had a week of science this week after we received a letter from a gardener asking for help with a plants investigation. After working in groups and doing some research into what plants need to survive, we have conducted a formal experiment where we grow sunflower seeds under different conditions. We have places sunflowers in the cupboard, freezer, windowsill and by the pond!
This week in maths we are exploring patterns with our times tables using Numicon. Here we are making a staircase for the three times table using our Numicon equipment.
Welcome back everyone! We hope you have had a lovely half term break. PE days this term are Mondays and Wednesdays.
This week year 3 have been to the Frontier Centre! Miss Slizys was on Tweet duty so please see Twitter for more pictures of our trip. What was your favourite part and why?
After lunch today, we came back to discover that our classroom had been turned into an Ancient Egyptian tomb! There were lots of statues, gold, papyrus paper and even a mummy! We had a great time exploring the treasures inside.
A huge well done to Mr Rees and Mr Prosser for completing the London Marathon today! The children in Rowling class did a fantastic job supporting our two teachers by running laps around school on Friday and helping to raise money for their chosen charities. A brilliant example of Growth Mindset shown by all!
On Wednesday, we all shared our key skills that we completed over the holiday. Miss Slizys has been really impressed by the creatively presented projects and the knowledge we have all learnt about the ancient Egyptians. Such great facts and super enthusiasm from Rowling class!
