A Spring Celebration

A big well done to all year three children this week who absoluetly blew us away with their amazing Celebration of Learning. The children showcased their fabulous learning throughout our expedition The Power Of Life: What Fuels Us? We have loved becoming scientists throughout this expedition and investigating electricity and requirements for life.

Every child in year three worked extremely hard to put on the best celebration possible. From learning lines and practicing singing the song, the children have spent hours preparing to showcase the best versions of themselves. The children are extremely proud of the work they have produced throughout the spring term and this shone through in their dedication to the celebration.

A big thank you to all parents/carers that came out to watch the celebration and joined us in grappling with circuits back in the classroom.

Science Week Challenge

 The LKS2 theme for science week this year was connections so what could be more fun than building towers out of sweets. The children were challenged to construct the tallest free standing tower using only 2 pieces of equipment – midget gems and cocktail sticks. Check the wonderful designs by our year 3 children and parents. Huge thank you to all those who came to support their children.

Well done to these children with a tower measuring 72cm!

These two towers were chosen for the creative designs!

Chance to Dance with Miss Wendy

Last week y3 started the second part of the 2022/23 Chance to Dance programme with weekly workshops with Chance to Dance associate artist and local dance teacher Miss Wendy. This week the children have been learning all about dynamics during dance and perfecting their ballet technique.

We think the children look ace doing their ballet and can’t wait to see the dance come together over the next weeks!!

Coding with Scratch

This half term, year 3 have began our final case study for our expedition – The Power of Life. Children have started to explore coding through Scratch which is the largest coding community which enables children to create digital stories, games and animations. The children in 3HJ already know far more than I do already! Check out their incredible designs!

Happy Pancake Day

Happy pancake day from Y3! Yesterday for crew we had a lovely morning eating pancakes. With a choice of either nutella, golden sugar, strawberry syrup and the classic lemon and sugar we were spoilt for choice.

A big thank you to Mrs Jenkins who spent her Monday night making 70 crepes!!

Children’s Mental Health Week

To promote Children’s Mental Health Week all crews in Year 3 played a couple of games of ’Let’s Connect Bingo’. It was lovely to see children connecting with each other, finding others with shared interests, building new friendships and most importantly having fun! And yes – Mrs Gill loves pepperoni pizza!
