Moving Forward, Aiming High!

3F

Welcome to Class 3F.

It has been a great start to the final part of the Summer term and we have started the half term with a fun morning of pirate themed activities to inspire the children's narrative writing.  The children were welcomed back to school with the staff dressed as Pirates which was quite a surprise!  They had fun exploring pirates throughout the morning by making pirate hat, treasure maps and creating their own pirate log books to collect information in.  They children were taught how to talk like a pirate, walk the plank, sword fight and scrub the decks!  Take a look at the photos below to see the fun they had.

 

During our Art Week focus we visited the William Allitt School and enjoyed a dance workshop with Miss Cohen.  The children learned the moves to perform "Ginga".  Also, the children have been exploring the work of Banksy and the medium of ink to create their own art work.

 

We had a fantastic day at Chatsworth Farm and the children enjoyed meeting all the animals.  They were able to hold chicks, stroke a kid and meet a newly born donkey foal.  The children had a great time exploring on the Adventure play park too.  Thank you to Bretby Rotary Club for organising this trip for the children.

 

We have been developing our investigation skills in Science this half term and we have explored planning and testing our ideas.  The children worked well in groups to investigate "Rocket Mice", exploring the force of air.  See the photos below.

 

Early in the first half of the Summer term we had a very busy time with Liz Lawrence, a Senior Lecturer from Birmingham City University who had been working with us exploring story telling through Art.  Liz was using these activities with the children to inform her research at the university and the children have greatly enjoyed and developed their Art and storytelling skills through these experiences.  Take a look at the photos below to see what we have been up to.

 

Also, we have begun to explore the story of "The Tempest" by William Shakespeare with professional story teller Maria Whatton.  The children have been exploring the events and characters from the story through drama, art work and movement.  They enjoyed hot seating Lilli Mae and Aaliyah as the characters Caliban and Miranda.  They have, also, explored how Ariel and Caliban would move.  See the photos below.

 

During the Spring term, in Design and Technology, the children have learned how to create a pneumatic system where they planned to incorporate in to a design for a monster with a moving part.  Take a look at our photos having a go at making a pneumatic system.

 

During our Science lessons we have been investigating Forces and Magnets and, most recently, Light.  The children had a great time investigating which surfaces created fiction and tested how far toy cars would travel on a range of surfaces.  They have, also, been exploring how mirrors work through writing messages that can be seen in the mirrors outdoors.

 

During the Inventors theme week we explored inventors throughout time including Archimedes, Alexander Graham Bell and the Wright Brothers. Take a look at our paper aeroplanes that we created and the string telephones we used to explore sound during our work on Alexander Graham Bell.

 

Recently, we had an interesting visit to the local Methodist Church to learn more about the festival of Easter and the features of a church.  We have, also, been very busy working on coding in Computing using a programme called Scratch.

 

The children have, also, worked hard during our Guided Reading sessions to become familiar with poetry and have been performing these in class.  We had a great time dressing up and exploring books on World Book Day.

A Bone Discovery!

During this half term the children arrived at school one morning to discover police tape in the school garden area.  On further investigation the children discovered that Mr Skelton, Our School Caretaker, had made an unusual discovery in the garden.  Year three went out to uncover this mystery and Mr Russell carefully uncovered a bone!  The children have used this event to create their own news reports during our English lessons over the last two weeks.  See pictures of us uncovering the bone below:-
