Goings on in year 3 September 24, 2013
Year 3 & 4 New school year, new buddies! September 9, 2013
Year 3 & 4 Valhalla Day! July 20, 2013
On Friday 19th July the children in years 3 and 4 didn’t seem to be at school…. in their place we had a tribe of Vikings! The Viking outfits were wonderful, thank you to all parents/careers for going to so much trouble!
The Vikings had a busy and fun-filled day!
There was a selection of activities in the morning, including the chance to make Viking bread, make clay tablets inscribed with Viking runes, do some Viking weaving, make a bookmark with names written in runes, and make a Viking amulet.
In the afternoon the Vikings worked in groups to design and make a Viking long-ship figurehead and to play a traditional Viking game. Despite the intense heat (very un-Viking like!) we all had a great day!
Our day at Cuffley! June 26, 2013
Today year 3 (and year 4) had a fabulous day out at Cuffley Camp!
The children took part in four different activities.
The first was pond dipping, which was very exciting, especially when a dragonfly nymph was discovered in the water!
Next the children learnt how to build and light a fire; using the flint took a bit of practice, but all the groups were successful in lighting their fires!
After lunch it was off to the “over and under” obstacle course, which was great fun – and involved a bit of mud, for those who chose to crawl through the puddle!
Last but not least was an art session, using soil and paints to create a picture of a tree.
Vikings! June 15, 2013
This term year 3 children are learning about the Vikings. They have made a great start to the topic, with their Viking longships. Some of the children have also made Viking helmets and jewellery for their homework, while others have done some Viking cookery! The children have researched the Jorvik Viking Centre (great family day out if you are in York!) and have made information leaflets about the centre.
This week in year 3! May 10, 2013
We have had another busy week in year 3. In Literacy we are learning how to write, read and follow instructions. We wrote our own set of instructions to make a balloon powered car; we then had great fun making the cars and watching them whizz along a piece of string!
We also took part in a gardening workshop, where we had to follow instructions to plant some seeds. We’ll be looking after the seeds over the next few weeks; we hope to harvest a selection of crops!
