Year 3 Art Day

Today in Year 3 we had our first Art day.

We focused on mixing colours with a variety of materials and the outcomes have been fantastic.

We have drawn and painted Stonehenge and even made it out of biscuits – yummy!

We’ve had a lovely day and learnt lots about Art.

This week we have been looking at Stone Age shelters, from different times.

We enjoyed comparing them to our homes and also started to create our own in DT.

Here are some pictures of our shelters (in progress)

Year 4 Highlights

 

Last week, Year 4 had a good mix of hard work and fun in class.                                            Here are some of the highlights of our week:

  • We started our topic of global food by learning where some food come from, having a little tasting session and learning about food groups.
  • We learnt  Pie Corbett’s instructions called “How to Trap a Dragon” and performed it in pairs or in small groups.
  • We played some Maths games on Place value.
  • We did some research on Roald Dahl and learnt how to copy and paste images in ICT

Well done Year 4! Keep up the good work!

Daily Mile

This academic year we have started to take part in the daily mile. We are hoping to improve our fitness levels and encourage children to take part in physical activity.

Year 3 had a great time taking part in their first mile and we hope to improve our time over the year. Today it took us 25 minutes to complete our mile, keep checking back to see how we improve.

Road Safety Y3 and Y4

Today Years 3 and 4 had a visit from the Road Safety Team.

The Road Safety Team spoke to us about how to stay safe when walking on the pavements and crossing the road.

They told us some important things to remember when we are crossing the road:

  1.  Find a safe place to cross.

2.Stop

3.Look – right, left and right again.

4.Listen

5.Think.

We got the chance to use their role play road and learnt where is safe to cross and where is not. We can now all be safer when crossing the road.
