Summer Term 2

Mrs Nerg and her friends

 Y3 parents and carers were entertained by many special guests at the Y3 assembly recently. Mrs Nerg was there along with Romeo and Juliet and even Percy Thrower. Well done on the fantastic acting, speaking and singing Y3 - you nailed it!!!



Gardening Success

The carrots we planted before the Easter holidays have gone crazy over half term. Now we are going to plant them out into the planter outside the door. We also have some peas and tomatoes growing and more things to plant very soon. Looking forward to tasting some in our whole school "Grow your own salad bowl" competition.


Summer Term 1

Outdoor Maths

We have been learning about 2D shape in maths. We went outdoors to look for perpendicular and parallel lines in the playground and then explored the Wildspace to make some shapes of our own. We discussed vertices and angles and tried to name the shapes we had made... Icosagon anyone???

Spring Term 2

Roving Reporters

 We have been working really hard on some newspaper reports. We invented our own newspaper names and chose suitable fonts to make headlines. We researched real newspaper articles to find out how they were constructed, then we tried to write ours in a similar way. Based on a book we have been reading, they tell of a terrible incident on a London street. Some are on display in our classroom.

Science Week - It's All About Cars

We had SO much fun this week! We learned about aerodynamics, acceleration and impact, speed and revolutions, and compared a supercar to a "boring" car. We investigated, formulated theories and tested them, created designs, made models and had races (see the video below), and killed (chocolate) bunnies (then ate them)!!! We are going to remember this for a looooonnnnngggg time.

Class 1 does World Book Day

Our book for World Book Day was Roald Dahl's "The Enormous Crocodile". We did our own fantastic versions of the story and decorated our door with characters from the book...

Spring Term 1

New Topic - Superheroes!

 After the excitement of the Egyptians, we have started a new topic about superheroes. We have been learning about Pop Art, onomatopoeia (thank goodness for the spellchecker!) and designing our own superheroes. We have turned ourselves into superheroes for the front of our topic books too...

Autumn Term 2

Class 1 does Bake Off... and wins!!!

For Children in Need we all practised our best baking skills making some AMAZING cakes and buns before "Mary" and "Paul" put them to a taste test. A special mention has to go to Eliot for managing to include our maths topic with his "Angle Cake". See if you can spot it below. Joseph was picked as the over all winner - Well done Joseph!!



Autumn Term 1

Bagshaw Museum Trip

We had a fantastic day when we went to the Bagshaw Museum to find out more about Ancient Egypt. First we were archaeologists, searching for and investigating egyptian artefacts. We explored the exhibition, drew hieroglyphics on papyrus, dressed up as pharoahs and built pyramids. Then we prepared a body for mummification by removing the vital organs, wrapping and storing them in canopic jars, including pulling the brain through the nose with a hook!!!! Finally we created our own mummy by wrapping Leo in bandages. Phew! No wonder some of us fell asleep on the way home!!!
