Year 3

Today we programmed a Beebot to move in a staircase shape.

We wrote our own set of algorithms for the staircase. Some of us even added a repeating instruction to save time!

Today we compared the capacity of a range of containers.

We can count and write up to 10 in Spanish!

To celebrate bonfire night, we created firework paintings using straws and glitter.

In computing, we have been learning how to program Beebots. Today, we programmed them to move in a square and rectangle.

Talk Homework

We prepared a talk about which cartoon character we would become for a day and explained why.

We had our own Passover meal, a Jewish celebration to remember Israelites' freedom from slavery. Each different item of food on the Seder plate symbolises something special.

Today we made paper bridges in groups for PSHE. Once we had made our bridges, we gave feedback to another team and commented on what we liked about their bridge and what they could have done to make it even better. Even though we found it useful to receive constructive criticism, the majority of us agreed that we preferred hearing the positive feedback!

We have been learning about the properties of 3D shapes - faces, edges and vertices. Today we made 3D shapes from modelling materials.

In PSHE, we looked at body language and how we can tell how a person is feeling based on this. Can you tell which emotions we are feeling in these pictures?

Today in maths, we sorted and compared 3D shapes based on whether they had flat or curved faces. Some of our shapes had both and were placed in the centre of the Venn Diagram!

On Wednesday, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Don Rae, who taught us a dance inspired by Black History Month.

In Spanish this week, we have been learning to answer the question "¿cómo estás?" and we can write our feelings as well

Here are some pictures of our RE day on co-operation.

In maths we have been investigating halving by trying to make the longest "halving chain." First, we made the number with place value cards, then we halved the tens, and finally the ones. We then recombined the two numbers.

We learnt about the Jewish festival Passover and how it reminds us of when the Israelites were freed from slavery. Here are some fantastic story boards that we have made to explain the story.

We played a game where we had to listen carefully and “change places if…” we could say yes to that rule. We learnt lots of new things about each other without having to speak!

In history, we have been learning about Ancient Egypt and today we discovered how mummies were made. Beforehand, we had a go at mummifying each other!

Please read this year's welcome letter to parents, attached below.

In RE this week, we have been learning about the Jewish home. We created our own mezuzahs containing a special prayer.

In Spanish this week, we have been learning different greetings such as: hola, buenos días, buenas tardes, buenas noches and adios.

In PSHE, we sat opposite our partner and discussed our perfect day. We allowed each other to talk without interrupting and showed good listening. Finally, we drew pictures of our perfect day.

RE - God's Promise to Abraham

RE - God's Promise to Abraham 1

This week we discussed how to be an effective listener and what it feels like when you're not being listened to properly!

We completed some fun team building activities, including which team could make the tallest tower out of marshmallows and spaghetti!

This week, Year 3 have been focusing on our Golden Rules. We took photos to demonstrate how we follow them at our school.
