A slightly different selection of Awards this week. Three Role Models were awarded for superb all round manners, attitude, behaviour and for their wonderfully confident 'We're Going On A Roman Hunt' performances.

Science: In Science this week the children looked at the effect of UV light and the damage that it can cause. They then designed their very own sunglasses.

What fun they had making them!

Don't we look cool!

Science: the children were given an assortment of pictures which they had to separate into light sources and non light sources.

They were given 5 feely bags with an object inside and had to draw it just by feeling.

Science: The results

Well done to our fabulous Role Models for being such amazing School Ambassadors on our school trip to Chester. You both demonstrated impeccable manners, behaviour and enthusiasm. And to our Merit Award winners who have come back after their break and shown that they really can do it!

Geography: Deforestation Effects

History: Mapping Hadrian's Wall

Maths - problem solving in groups. The children were given a sheet of number sentences and had to try to collaboratively workout the patter. Finally after much discussion and team work each table managed to solve the problem and verbalise how they'd reached their conclusion.

Well done to our fabulous Role Model for her consistently outstanding behaviour, attitude and manners. It’s been Test week and her focus has been amazing in all subjects. Our first merit Award goes to our superstar Hand Writer who has the most beautiful stylized writing which is a pleasure to read and mark as well as his fabulous ideas and super vocabulary during our class myth writing; it certainly wouldn’t have been the same without it! Finally, to our Merit Award winner for his fantastic focus and superb test results this week, he’s definitely trying to be the best he can be and should be very proud of himself. Huge congratulations!

Our Groovy Friday Dancers!

Enjoying the running track.

Thank goodness it's Friday!

RE: Learning all about World Vision and the impact it can have on communities.

History: having learned all about Roman roads, why and how they were made, the children used atlases to be able to map and draw some of them.

Star Writer – for making fabulous use of a structure strip to retell the story of Theseus and The Minotaur, using senses, similes, great vocabulary and for having written five paragraphs; it was a pleasure to read! Such beautiful handwriting too!

Computing and Geography: using the internet to research animals of the rainforests and their habitats. Recapping on last week’s lesson all about the layers of the rainforest and reflecting on how and why various animals live in the different layers. Once the children had made a fact file, they presented their findings to the rest of the class.

In Science the children were learning about the different ways in which seeds can be dispersed. Each table was given one form of transportation and decided which seeds could be transported in this manner. They then had to act out their mode of transport for the other children to guess.

Our first Merit Award winner has been chosen for her fabulous work ethic and attitude in Maths especially in Problem Solving which has been a huge focus this year in class….trying to explain in words how you’ve managed to get the answer is no easy feat by any means but she’s certainly smashing it!! And to our other Merit Award Winner for her super learning and motivation to really try her hardest; get her head down working and an amazing participation in class discussions especially in our ‘Myth’ work in English this week. What fabulous ideas you have!

Wow what a fabulous end to the week! Our Boogie Friday winners were chosen by the whole class this week!

Computing: Programming a LEGO snail using blue tooth and starting to create a code to change its light.

Geography: Layers of the rainforest. Here the children are demonstrating: Emergent, Canopy, Understorey and Forest Floor.

The children learnt about the different features of the rainforest layers, the different plants and about the animals that live there.

The final Stone Age projects. They've been amazing to see and to hear the children talk with such enthusiasm. They've definitely enjoyed the topic and have learnt a lot about the Stone Age!

Well, it’s girl power this week! Two Role Models chosen for their impeccable manners and behaviour and always adhering to the school’s Golden Rules: Ready, Kind, Respect and Safe both in and out of the classroom. A huge congratulations has to go to our very worthy Merit Award Winner for the amount of progress she’s making which is down to her fantastic focus and attitude towards her learning. Brilliant Maths and English this week. Well done to all three of you.

Friday Boogie Groovers!

After a very close vote here are our two new Class Representatives for the following year. No doubt the rest of the class will be giving them a lot of ideas to take to their meetings!

Well done to our fantastic Star Writers of the week, both chosen for the huge progress they’ve made this school year!

Following on from Geography and learning about rainforests the children in Guided Reading have read The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry, not only have they enjoyed the text, the illustrations are beautiful as well as the message the book conveys.

Great concentration, focus and complete silence whilst answering the questions and referring back to the text to support their answers.

In Geography this week the children have been looking at the climate and weather conditions of rainforests. Each table was given a destination and then as a group they had to present a weather forecast to the rest of the class.

Each day this week the children were allocated some time to 'Show & Tell' their homework projects. To start us off we had a very talented, future film animator, come in and show his 'Lego' Stone Age project: we were all very impressed!

What a very full on week we’ve had; the children have all come back rested and ready for their last term in Year 3. Huge congratulations to our wonderful Role Model, she may be very quiet and incredibly well behaved with lovely manners, but she always follows the school’s Golden Rules and is a great friend to all. Well done to our Merit Award Winners for coming back to school with such a fabulous attitude and have produced some great work this week. One for his fabulous Maths work and superb Stone Age project and the other for his concentration and focus, great participation and superb hand writing. Well done to all three of you.

French: learning to count to 100 the fun way.

Enjoying the running track! Even Mrs Pope was seen running!

Science: The new topic this half term is Plants. After having done a diagnostic test to check how much and what they know, the children looked at the parts that make up a plant and started to learn about their functions. Each table worked together to set up an exploration and observation investigation to find out what plants need to grow well. They had to choose a question, make a prediction, state why they thought this and write about the method they would use.

To help the children to remember the 7 life processes of a plant, they have found a friend to remind them - Mrs Nerg. Although her name sounds a bit strange, the letters in it stand for the life processes - movement, reproduction, sensitivity, nutrition, excretion, respiration and growth.

Maths: Place Value…..great concentration and a little friendly competition between the tables to see who could get through their Maths within a set time and not make silly mistakes….

Computing: Using the internet to research and find information out about a rainforest.

Role Model and Merit Award Winners: Huge congratulations to our very mature, kind, thoughtful, dependable and reliable Role Model. How amazing to be able to possess all these wonderful qualities at such a young age: an amazing ambassador for our class and school! Well done to our super Merit Award winners who are definitely trying to be the best they can be. They are always smiling and happy, tell funny jokes and cheer everyone up. In addition to having been chosen as Star Writer for a super playscript and for their determination and focus. Well done to all three of you!

To round off a super term, the children had an Easter Egg Hunt! 3P were definitely the fastest they managed to find the most eggs in the allotted time!

On Thursday the children went up to church for the Easter Service and were all beautifully behaved.

RE: Resurrection – reflecting on artwork around the crucifixion of Jesus and discussing the mood and feelings portrayed and how Mary must have thought having discovered that Jesus’s body was no longer there? Whilst the children were reflecting, they listened to Stabat Mater music which is a hymn to Mary, Jesus’ mother, and portrays her suffering during her son’s crucifixion.
