Our expedition this week has centred on learning all about The Blitz. Children supported each other to create their own anchor charts, demonstrating their knowledge and understanding of the subject ranging from how it was named, areas that were bombed and why the blackout was so important. Super work year 3.
On Friday afternoon, 5RS participated in a dance workshop led by two members of the Royal Ballet. The children worked extremely hard, under expert guidance, to refine their Alice in Wonderland dance sequence, which they are going to perform outside the Cast Theatre a week on Saturday!
Today, year 3 spent time estimating where numbers would go on a number line to 100. An added bonus was that we drew all over the tables. Children used their reasoning skills to locate numbers and the use of mathematical vocabulary was amazing. Well done 3HJ!
During immersion week, Year 3 began their expedition learning all about World War Two. Check out our beautiful artwork creating a silhouette of the London skyline during the Blitz. Here we used water colours to paint the background and drew the skyline on black paper! How effective do they look?
Yesterday, Y3 had a wonderful afternoon in our first community event. We were very excited to invite parents and carers into school to hold a games afternoon, taking part in games of bingo and even trying our hand at “Beetle Drive”, a popular game among children during World War Two. Thank you so much to all those who attended.
In our first week at NJS, 3HJ have made ’Time Capsules’ reflecting on their summer break and setting goals for the new school year. Each time capsule contains photos, examples of some of the children’s favourite things, pledges for the forthcoming year and pieces of awesome art work. These time capsules will be sealed and ‘buried’ till July where we will be able to reflect on our journey through year 3!
What an amazing morning we had completing our very first NJS sports day. I couldn’t be prouder of how all the year 3 children showed team spirt and sportsmanship whether they came first in their race or not! Super effort and determination on such a hot day! We are all waiting with baited breath to discover which class won!
How amazing are our completed pop art pictures in the style of Andy Warhol. We all think they are extremely striking, we hope you agree!! Awesome effort as always from our fabulous year 3 team!
This week, year 3 have been studying pop art by inspirational artist Andy Warhol. We completed a gallery walk, making praises and wonders about some of his most iconic pieces. As you can see, we also had a go at creating our very own pop art pictures using sweets and sugar as inspiration. Check out the vibrant colours and the attention to detail. Great job 3HJ!
