This half term during our Wise Wednesday crew sessions, Year 3 have been focussing on Mental Wellbeing. The children have spent time discussing different emotions, how we can understand them and how they can effect our behaviour. These beautiful mindfulness colouring sheets brought calm into our classroom this morning and were coloured in beautifully. We cant wait to get them displayed around school.
Check out the amazing range of balances created by 3HJ in their first gymnastics lesson this week. The core strength and skill demonstrated by the children absolute blew me away! Awesome work guys!!
This week we had some very special visitors in Y3. We were joined again by Bim and Miss Wendy, as well as a professional pianist and other members of the Chance to Dance team. The workshop allowed the children to demonstrate how hard they have worked in dance over the last term.
The Royal Ballet visitors were blown away by the attitudes of the children, and highly praised how kind, caring and helpful they were towards each other. Well done 3LG!
This week saw the end of our weekly ballet lessons with a visit from dancers from The Royal Ballet. The children took part in a selection workshop demonstrating different types of ballet. Both visitors and school staff were extremely proud of the behaviour and effort from all children. We will find out soon which children have been selected and who will carry on with their ballet journey. Huge well done guys!
This week we have officially kicked off Case Study 1 of our new expedition The Power of Life. We will be learning all about electricity and circuits so it would be rude not to build some of our own. Yesterday we challenged the children to assemble the circuit and switch the light bulb on. We think they did a pretty great job!
Super team work and communication this afternoon from year 3 who completed these wonderfully colourful collages representing the different parts of plants.
What a cracking day we have had being immersed whole heartedly into our new and exciting expedition – The Power of Life. We spent the morning hunting electrical appliances around school, thinking about the many different devices we have and use at home and ways to reduce usage. The children were also awesome at identifying renewable and non-renewable sources of energy and created wonderful anchor charts persuading people to be more sustainable! Top job guys!
3HJ have had a wonderful few days enjoying all things festive starting with watching the wonderful pantomime Cinderella and having our Christmas party. We spent our last day together playing crew against crew bingo and Kahoot quizzes. All the year 3 team would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

This week saw us making our very own Christmas decorations courtesy of XP Outdoors. All children engaged in this festive task and created a découpage wooden cookie slice by cutting characters from napkins and using sealer to create the finished look. How amazing do they look!
