Year 3 took part in another fantastic Art Week during the week commencing 20th June 2016. This Art Week the children made suggestions for the weeks theme and we then took a vote. The most popular choice was 'Alice in Wonderland', which also ties in with Year 5/6's end of year production. Some of the activities the children wanted to do were planning and creating the Mad Hatter's Hat using paint and collage materials, character drawings and we also did some wacky character mash-ups! At the end of the week all the classes had an assembly to show and tell each other what they had been doing for the week.
Thank you to all the children for their amazing performance in the class assembly! It was so lovely to see so many parents, carers and families. The children have really enjoyed learning about the Ancient Egyptians and their enthusiasm really shone through during the assembly. We were so proud of them all!
On Friday 10th June 2016, we held a tea party in class to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday. The children played some traditional playground games followed by a cup of tea and strawberries and cream. A very British afternoon!
During our topic on Ancient Egyptians, we challenged the children to see which group could make the tallest pyramid using only dry spaghetti and marshmallows. The children worked really well in their groups deciding what kind of base they would need and snapping the spaghetti to make shorter lengths to help with their structures. It was very sticky but great fun!
Wow! The children really impressed us with their knowledge and understanding of the 'Hunter Gatherer' period of time! Miss Williams and Ms Davies are so very proud of how confident and clear everyone was with their lines, singing and acting, well done! It was lovely to see so many parents and carers come and watch the assembly. It was filmed but unfortunately we have some orientation issues.... we hope that you can still enjoy viewing it if you were unable to join us on the day.'Hunter Gatherer' assembly
At the beginning of the school year the children voted for the class target to aim for. They chose to 'Challenge Ourselves'. Every time they especially challenged themselves; whether in Literacy, Maths, SPAG, Handwriting, Spellings, Science, History, Geography or Topic work, their own Minion would be moved onto Gru and then onto the moon. To encourage everyone to really challenge themselves the children were promised a Minion party at the end of half-term. Were we all successful?
Thank you so much for your generous donations this Harvest! All the donated food was taken to Kirkstall St Stephen's Church for our Harvest celebration. The food was then distributed amongst very deserving charities. Thank you!
In literacy we have been recreating freeze frame drama scenes from our book, The Iron Man, by Ted Hughes.
We have been looking at the work of Eric Joyner and recreating our own versions of his famous works of art using our school environment as a back drop.
