The children have been looking at the erruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD within Pompeii as the children's topic this term was based around a unit called Tremors. The children then went on to create their very own clay sculpture of the people that lived in Pompeii at the time the volcano erupted.

Before we created our sculptures we worked with a partner to sketch each other laying in positions that the people of Pompeii may have ended up in after Mount Vesuvius erupted.

We've been learning about volcanoes and because we can't go to see an actual volcano our teacher found a virtual reality app for the iPads that took us to a real volcano! When we moved around we could see lava on the floor and bursting out of the crust at the top. It felt like we were there!

What does my child need to wear for their class scene in the whole school play?

As you are aware, your child has been rehearsing their lines for their class scene in the whole school play ‘Shakespeare Rocks’.  This post is to inform you of the clothing that your child could wear for their class scene.

 

Class 7 – this class are builders who are just about to finish off building the Globe theatre.  So both boys and girls could wear trousers/shorts with braces, a shirt/plain t-shirt (possibly made dirty) and a flat cap (optional).  A plastic builder’s hat is an option too.  If your child/children have any plastic pretend tools that they could use to act with in their scene, this would be helpful.

 

Class 8 – this class are theatre goers who have been waiting to get inside the newly built theatre to see Shakespeare’s play.  Boys are likely to be wearing smart trousers (school trousers would be perfect), shirt, tie/bow tie (optional) and jacket (optional).  Girls could wear a dress with a cardigan or shawl.  If any girls have a bridesmaid dress or a suitable party style dress this would also work in this scene. 

 

If you think you may have something that could be used in either of the above scenes please let me know and I will keep whatever items are brought into school safe.  Also, if you are unable to provide your child/children with a costume please inform their class teacher who will feed back to me (Miss Huntington) and I will do my best to arrange a costume for your child.

 

Many thanks for all your support in the preparation for our whole school play.

We have been busily preparing our scene and song for the play and we thought we'd share with you a snippet of the song we will be singing. We love this song and really enjoy singing it and adding in the actions!

As part of our revision for our assessments this week we made Top Trump cards based on 3D shapes. Once we had made them we played the game and thoroughly enjoyed competing against each other and learning about the properties of 3D shapes.

Friday 24th June 2016 was our final swimming session in Year 3. We had lots of fun with the soft play floats and weights that had to be collected from the floor of the pool. We even had the opportunity to go on the slide! We had so much fun and some of us conquered our fears on the water slide and didn't regret our decision to have a go. We have thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and look forward to our next swimming sessions in Year 4.

Over the last half term we were investigating which seeds would grow the best. Some of the seeds had been in space and some had not. Here are our final results and we have included a before and after picture so that you can compare them. How many seeds grew? How many seeds did not grow?

During class assembly (on Thursday) we learned about the Eurovision Song Contest. We listened to the UK entry and liked it so much our teacher allowed us to use it in our TTRockstars sessions for the next two days. Although Jake and Joe didn't do as well class 8 hoped they would, they still enjoyed listening to the song!

May 11th 2016 - We researched food prices and inputted the data into a spreadsheet so that we know which is the best value supermarket for buying our food for our smoothie recipes.

Mystery Stories - 6th May 2016

 

In year 3 we have been planning a story and have started to write our mystery stories.  We have based our writing on a text we have been reading called 'Smash and Grab' - a story about some items that were stolen from a museum and then discovered in a beehive!

We look forward to sharing some of our stories with you in the next two weeks.  smiley

We have been learning all about nonsense poems and used the well-known poem 'The Jabberwocky' by Lewis Carroll as our inspiration. We began by making up some words to describe our 'fruit', which we created using clay last week, then started to put these words into verses to create a poem. Here is one of the poems created by class 8.
