Y3 have loved integrating Sumdog into our crew routines this half term. Since discovering you can win coins like on TTRS we have become quite competitive.
On Remembrance Day, LKS2 spent the day making some these beautiful remembrance day cards which included a watercolour poppy and an acrostic poem. These works of art were taken to Campsall Church and given to members of the community who attended the Remembrance service.
This week the children in year 3 were excited to take part in the launch of our Chance to Dance lessons. Our focus ballet this year is The Nutcracker. To start, the children were introduced to the main characters from the ballet and created motifs to show their personality and how they might move. It was lovely to see how all children embraced this new genre of dance and the effort they put in to perfecting their performances.
Over the past few weeks, year 3 have immersed themselves in all things subtraction. We are now experts at using the number line to correctly take away and today we worked together to answer a range of different problems, supporting our peers where necessary. This is the true definition if crew! Well done 3HJ 😊
What a frightening start to the half term we had with this lot of scary folk. 3HJ had a wonderful day completing a whole host of spooky activities from writing to creating their own death masks. Enjoy trick or treating! 🎃👻💀
Y3 have had a spooky start back to school today. Everybody dazzled in their amazing halloween costumes. We had everything from pumpkins to witches and skeletons to werewolves.
After sharing our exciting half term stories in crew, we spent the day completing a number of halloween themed tasks such as making our own halloween characters, designing pumpkins and using our maths knowledge to solve a mystery.
This week during our Flexible Friday crew session year 3 enjoyed taking part in scary Halloween Kahoot quizzes. I wonder who has the fastest finger in Crew Jenkins?? 😜
To celebrate the end of our first case study of our Lest We Forget expedition, year 3 have used their knowledge and understanding of rationing as well as measures to bake bread from a traditional WW2 recipe. Obviously, the best part was getting stuck in with kneading and I have to say the bread was absolutely delicious and went down a treat!
This week 3LG have been learning all about rationing and wartime food. To finish up our learning we made traditional WW2 bread, using only what people would have avaiable at the time.
We have spent the morning following a recipe, measuring igredients, mixing and kneeding dough.
We can definitely think of worse ways to spend a Friday than making the “best bread ever”
Flexible Friday is where Yr 3 children choose different activities to complete with their crew. Today Crew Jenkins and Crew West played dodgeball against each other. Although each crew wanted to win, it was lovely to see positive sportsmanship both during and after the games with children cheering for each other, congratulating one another and shaking hands. It was lovely to watch! 😊
