Welcome to Year 3!
What a jam packed full half term it has been for year 3!
Our science work this term has been based around the theme of ‘Healthy human’. Within this topic we have covered nutrition, types of skeletons and muscles. This work has been used to develop our skills for collaborative learning by working in teams, assigning roles, taking turns and listening to one another.
The children have been very enthusiastically learning the rap song ‘Ho Ho Ho’ through our charanga scheme. They have learnt the song, listened to the rhythm and accompanied the song with instruments.
As well as singing songs we have also been dancing to songs this half term as we have been learning a dance to little mix’s song ‘Weird People’ with the Sports partnership. The children have learnt so much in this short time and have really listened and taken on the advice. They have amazed me!
We have just completed our 4 week block of Forrest school. The children have truly loved this. They have well and truly stuck in (weather that been with exploring the area around them, getting covered in mud or eating from the camp fire.
Dragons have been our focus for our English work and we believe that an egg that was found was a dragon egg! Unfortunately it hatched while we were down at assembly and escaped out of our window but our dragon hunt revealed many clues as to where the dragon had gone, what he had done and what might have happened to it. This lead to some great descriptive language and caught their imaginations.
