Here is a welcome message from Mr. Watson for his new Year 3 class in September.
We loved our Maths day and thought the workshop was fantastic! We had to work in Teams of 5 in create space sculptures. Problem solving in a group was tricky but we loved creating all the shapes.
Our music this term is based on Bob Marley’s “Three little Birds”.
We love the song, it’s very calming and we think the lyrics are great!
Don’t worry, about a thing. Because every little thing is gonna be alright.
We are keeping the beat using instruments. Next week we will be using more than one note.
Next week for ‘Science’ we will be focusing on light. This will also link to our Literacy using the book Leon and The Place Between to enhance vocabulary we be looking at the following words ‘opaque’, ‘translucent’ and ‘transparent’. Could you please research and give examples of each of these words in your homework books along with any pictures and drawings. If possible could you please bring a torch for next Monday’s lesson. Many thanks 😁 The Year 5 Team.
Although we had very important work to do, we still celebrated ‘Children in Need’ in style with face paint, colouring and lots of singing. Year 3 loved every minute!
In forest school this week we built fairy dens, made a fire and made houses for forest animals. We are getting really good at den making, especially after our year three camp.
We have had the best time at our Year 3 Camp! We walked around Knightshayes in beautiful sunshine, sat down and practiced our landscape drawing techniques, worked as a team to build dens in the forest and played in the school field until sun set, before heading to roast marshmallows, on a camp fire and searched for bats, taking a brief pause to stare at the stars.
We loved every minute of it! Well done to everyone who took part.
The Year 3 camp was a big hit this year and all of the children were impeccably behaved.
During the day our woodland walk allowed the children to build dens and forage for hidden treasures in the woods. We then visited the ornamental gardens at Knightshayes and completed some sketches.
Once we had returned to school, we prepared our campsite for the night and enjoyed tea before heading back to forest school to undertake some evening activities around the camp fire. The final event of the evening was a bat walk and star gazing, a very relaxing end to a busy day!
