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.
Last week Y3 fully immersed themselves in our first case study by replicating in the life of a child during World War Two. We got dressed up in our best 1940s attire and walked down to Norton Community Hall where we ate jam sandwiches, drank ovaltine and played games.
To top off an amazing day as evacuees, we had some exciting visitors in school. We were joined by WW2 experts who brought wartime veihcles for us to have a look at and sit in.
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?
This week Y3 have been learning all about place value in maths. We have been learning all about hundreds, tens and ones and it would only have been fair to kick this topic off by writing all over the tables.
This week year three have started their expedition learning all about World War Two. Y3 have produced beautiful artwork of a skyline during the Blitz, watched Bedknobs and Broomsticks, learned all about how World War Two started and created aiplanes out of lollipop sticks. It is fair to say we are now fully immersed in our autumn expedition and can’t wait to find out more next week!
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.
Yesterday Y3 spent the afternoon having a blast playing games and raising money for charity. It wouldn’t be a games afternoon without a highly competitive game of Bingo and we even stayed true to our expedition playing “Beetle Drive”, a game that became popular among children during World War Two.
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!
