We were visited by some scientists who showed us some fascinating experiments using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, which we got to do.
We learnt about the weather in Spain and became weather presenters. We also learnt about bull fighting in English and wrote some persuasive arguments about banning and not banning bull fighting.
Year 3 were warmly welcomed into a Hindu Temple at Lewisham. We heard stories about the faith and were told about the meaning of the temple for Hindus. The temple was beautiful.
In our science lessons on Plants we have learnt about the function of roots. We visited the school’s nature garden to dig up some roots. We also sowed some mustard seeds to investigate the best conditions for germination.
We had a fantastic time at the Tate Modern art gallery on London’s South Bank. We had wonderful workshops on drawing and sculpture making.
Year 3 had some great Lego designs based on the school. The children were very eager to create these.
In the space of two day, 3AW shared their recorder talent with the school and performed a class assembly based on the royal family and places in the UK. Well done for your hard work and confidence.
Mr Wheatley’s maths group learnt about polyhedrons there were some tricky names to learn like: tetrahedron, hexahedron etc. They did very well. They used nets to create their own polyhedrons.
Thank you for visiting our class page. 3AW will shortly be showing all their interesting and hard work, along with fun trips and visitors. Keep visiting to find out what we have been doing.
We have been studying gymnastics during our PE sessions. We were lucky enough to be visited by a professional gymnast.
We had a great morning visiting the Royal Albert Hall. The performances were exciting. We especially enjoyed moving to the ‘Brassacals’ a youth jazz band.
In English we wrote some instructions to find ancient Egyptian pharaoh treasure. We read the book ‘There’s a pharaoh in our bath’ by Jeremy Strong which inspired us to make our own treasure map. Once we had completed our instructions we made our map on the playground and read our instructions for someone else to follow.
We have been learning about Ancient Egypt. Here are some of the interesting things we have made.
We created messy maps of Egypt, after learning about the geography of Egypt, using equipment in the classroom to show the different features. Can you spot the River Nile.
3AW went back in time to Ancient Egypt and became embalmers. After being instructed and trained they then mummified their friends.
On our RE day, on Judaism, we learnt about the story of Hanukkah. We acted out the story and made some Matzo Brei, which is traditional food eaten during this celebration of light.
We went to the Unicorn theatre and watched ‘Baddies the Musical’ we were surprised by some of the behaviour of characters which we always thought were good. Everyone enjoyed the show! We were also able to see some of the sights of London and have our lunch by the Thames.
This half term we learnt all about rocks in our science topic.
We received a warm welcome from St Barnabas church, where we were able to learn about what happens at the church. This has informed our learning in RE, where we have been learning about Christian places of worship.
Through our topic we have had the opportunity to be hunters and gatherers. We have also created our own cave art along with jewellery and a Stonehenge.
It was amazing to see Egyptian artefacts up close in the British Museum. We saw statues of pharaohs, coffins, hieroglyphs, Sarcophaguses and even mummies. It was fascinating!
