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.

Stone Age Shelters

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)

Welcome back Year 3

Welcome from Year 3!

We have had a great first week in our classroom, we have been getting to know our teacher Miss Briggs and also learning about our new environment.

We have made our new class rules, refreshed our memory of the school rules, been given all our new work books and had lots of fun learning what year 3 is all about.

This half term our topic is Stone Age:

We will be looking at lots of books about the Stone Age in English including Stone Age Boy, UG and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth. Alongside this we will be writing instructions and diary entries.

In math we will be focusing on place value and looking at our times tables.

In an afternoon we will be looking at the Stone Age and the difference between then and now as well as looking at Rocks in Science.

We will also be doing lots of fun and exciting things in DT, Art, RE, PSHE and PE.

A little reminder that Miss Briggs won’t be in on a Wednesday.

Monday – homework to be returned.

Tuesday – new homework will be given out.

Wednesday – PE

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Briggs and Mrs Barraclough

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.

Our special visitor.

This morning in year 3 we had a new member in our class.

Our Elf came with a letter explaining why it had come and asking us to name it. We had to do some writing to persuade Miss Briggs why she should choose our name.

We all did fantastic writing but Alicias name won, it was Lucky and we decided the Elf would be a girl.

Lucky came with our advent calendar and she is watching for people being kind!

Year 3’s trip to the Mandir

On the 23rd November Year 3 went on a trip to the Hindu Temple also known as the Mandir.

We were invited in to the temple and shown to the worship room where we got to see all the Hindu Gods and learn lots of interesting things.

We learnt all the Hindu Gods names – well 10 of them, about Hindu weddings and also about what the Hindus might have in a shrine at home.

We had a fantastic time and felt so welcomed, the Hindu priest also gave us a gift as we left.

Year 3 Trip to Bradford Cathedral

Year 3 enjoyed a visit to Bradford Cathedral.  They had a guided tour, a mosaic craft workshop and a musical organ experience.  The children asked lots of interesting questions and they were complimented on their excellent behaviour.
