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.

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.
