Our learning charter:

Term 6

This term, we will be looking at Global Goal 15, Life On Land to answer our question of 'Humans or Bees: Who is the most influential animal on Earth?'. During this enquiry, we will be becoming scientists, who look at plants and what is needed for them to survive. As well as this, we are going to become technologists in order to build a safe haven for bees to thrive in our school. In writing, we will be looking at the Bee Movie and we will be looking at different tenses. We will be using all of our targets so far to help us write our own versions of the story! 

Term 5

 

This term, we will be looking at Global Goal 6, Life Below Water to answer our question of 'What is killing sea life?'. During this enquiry, we will be becoming geographers, who look at the ocean and the marine life to see if we can find the answer to our question. As well as this, we are going to become campaigners to persuade people to make a change that will stop our sea life from dying.

 

Once this enquiry has been completed, we will be exploring Global Goal 15, Life on Land and our enquiry question is `Humans or Bees: Which is the most influential animal on Earth?`. Within this enquiry we will be scientists and will learn about pollination and technologists who create safe havens for the bees. We might even be selling items so keep an eye out!  

Queen's Jubilee  - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts

To celebrate the Queen's Jubilee we had the opportunity to make our own crowns before we enjoyed a tea party with our families on the field.

Paralympian visit - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts

We were lucky to have a visit from paralympian  Katrina Hart and the opportunity to complete in a sponsored HITT session. We were very tired by the end of it but we were very proud of ourselves and the amount of money we have raised!

Term 4

This term we are continuing on with our enquiry `Where does our clean water come from?`. In this enquiry, we will be geographers who explore rivers, artists who explore the use of water colour and historians who learn all about the Mayans! 

 

Hockey - Article 24: Health, Water, Food, Environment 

In Term 4 outdoor PE, we are doing hockey with Mr Gill. In our first session, we learnt about how to hold the hockey stick and how to dribble the ball across the court. We were then challenged to play a game where we had to try and hit eachother's balls out of the court. We loved learning these new skills and we are looking forward to playing a full game in PE this term.

World Book Day! Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts

Today we ccelebrated  25 years of World Book Day! In class, we shared the meaning of the words that we have dressed up as. We also explored artwork that expressed words and had a go at drawing an image to represent our words. In the afternoon, we were joined by 5CW and enjoyed sharing and listening to different stories. Then, we gathered in the hall and listened to each teacher read an extract from a book, chose which one we wanted to listen more of and listened to some more back in the teacher's classroom. 

Term 3

This term we have finished our enquiry `Can food on its own keep us healthy?` and we have introduced our new enquiry `Where does our clean water come from?`. In this enquiry, we will be scientists who learn all about states of matter and the water cycle, geographers who explored rivers, artists who explore the use of water colour and historians who learn all about the Mayans! Alongside this, our writing will be based on the book `Krindlekrax` by Philip Ridley. Please check our page for updates on our fantastic learning!

Safer Internet day

Today it has been Safer Internet Day where we have focused on how to be respectful whilst online gaming and learning about the types of information it is safe to share online. We started the day by looking at personal and private information and the reasons why it is important not to share private information with strangers online. Then we had an assembly with Mr Stinchcombe, which kicked off out activities for the day. From this, we met a lovely alien from Planet Gnimag who had travelled to Earth in order to learn more about gaming. We had a mission to help guide him through the different issues he might face. We learned all about being respectful, happy and safe online. 

Chinese New Year Dance Workshop

On Friday, we had a fantastic time taking part in a Chinese New Year dance workshop. We learnt how to use parasols and even danced with a dragon! We had lots of fun and have enjoyed our time learning all about Chinese New Year!

Maths Day!

In Week 4, we had a fantastic maths day in which we looked at applying our mathematics within the context of animals! We first of all had a brilliant assembly which got us thinking about statistics related to animals and then had a maths workshop which allowed us to practising measuring. We investigated "facts" about the body to see if they were true or not. 

 

When we went back to class we focused on data collection. We explored what a pictogram was and went out a bug hunt outside. We used the data we collected to create our own pictograms in groups. 

 

We have had a brilliant day and cannot wait for our next maths day!

Term 2

This term, we have continued our enquiry `Can food on its own keep us healthy?` We cannot wait to learn more about our skeletons, the food groups and the inspirational Frida Kahlo. Alongside this, we are exploring writing features such as; expanded noun phrases and adverbs using `George's Marvellous Medicine` by Roald Dahl as our key text. Please check our page for updates on our fantastic learning!

Term 2 Shining Star

Maths Day                                                                                                      Article 28: The right to an education 

In Week 3, we had a maths day based around space and the solar system! We learnt about right angles and how we can use them to describe direction. We learnt there are 4 right angles turns within a whole turn and practiced turning left and right using different amounts of right angle turns. We followed and created directions and then finally created our own space mazes. Can you safely pass through our space mazes? 

No Pens Monday and Odd Socks Day                                                            Article 12: Sharing thoughts freely

We had a fantastic time working on our oracy skills as part of no pens day. We recapped what we have learnt about oracy so far in Year 3. We then learnt skills and techniques such as silent summariser, thumbs in and talk tokens. In Guided reading, we had a book talk session where we read 'the suitcase' which we really enjoyed! We took part in a conscience alley to think about what the main character in the story should do.

 

It has also been Odd socks day for anti bullying week. We all came to school in odd socks and we loved learning the odd socks song altogether!

Athletics Challenge                                                                                       Article 31 the right to play and relax

We participated in an athletics challenge. We took part in a range of challenges such as running, balancing, jumping and throwing. We had lots of fun and worked extremely hard! 

Term 1 

This term we have focused on settling into the Juniors. We have learnt all about what it means to be a `Purple Learner` and began our enquiry `Can food on its own keep us healthy?` In this enquiry, we will be scientists who learn all about animal's skeletons, muscles and the right types and amount of nutrition needed. In addition, we will be artists who explore drawing using inspiration from Frida Kahlo and be farmers as we harvest and cook using produce from our allotment! Alongside this, our writing will be based on the book `George's Marvellous Medicine` by Roald Dahl. Please check our page for updates on our fantastic learning!

George's marvelous medicine                                                                     Article 28: The right to an education    This term as part of our enquiry, we will be looking at the book, 'George's marvelous medicine' by Roald Dahl. To kick off our learning we looked at the book in close detail and discussed what we thought it would be about. After that, we got started making our own medicines! Using ingredients we found outside and around the classroom and kitchen such as mud, leaves, paint, feathers and even tomatoes! Some of our medicines looked rather disgusting but we really enjoyed making them just like George did in the book. We are so excited to keep on reading our book to find out what happens to George and his Grandma.

Being Athletes                                                                                    Article 24: We have the right to be healthy

This term, we have been lucky enough to have the sports coach for our outdoor PE lessons, where we are learning all about football. So far, we have learned how to correctly pass the ball to our partners, where we keep and eye on the ball so we can aim it in the correct direction. Did you know, when you pass the ball, you need to use the inside of your foot? As well as this, we have been using our penguin feet to dribble the ball and keep control of it. Have a look at the pictures below to see what we have been up to

Playpod fun                                                                                                  Article 31: The right to rest and play  

After being locked away for ages, we were finally allowed to play with our wonderful playpod! The PTA had spent ages clearing it out and re-stocking it with new and exciting junk! Playpod helps us to develop our imaginations and release important energy. Have a look at what we've been doing today.
