Year 3 & 4 Trip to the Zoo:
This Half Term Year 3 and Year 4 visited the Zoo! It has been a great educational experience offering a Workshop delivered by the Zoo staff and investigations about endangered species. We had lots of fun finding out about different species and their habitats! Please see a slideshow here capturing some of the best moments:
Learning in Year 3:
Children enjoyed decorating cupcakes in preparation to the school's annual Macmillan Coffee morning using the generous donations of their families. Children used their creativity and imagination to decorate their cakes. Some cupcakes were inspired by stories such as Matilda by Roald Dahl others were inspired by previous cake decorating experiences at home.
We have been writing letters to Ug-Boy from the Stone Age inviting him to the 21st Century. Children in Year 3 worked in pairs to look at each others letter plans and to discuss improvement points. The completed letters will be displayed outside our class room on the Writing Wall.
We have been learning about Place Value for a number of weeks now. Children had the opportunity to work in pairs and create 3-digit numbers using counters and a Place Value Base. There were some rules to be followed, for example the number children created had to be bigger than 342 but smaller than 548. There were of course other rules too! Children enjoyed this activity and remained focused and motivated throughout.
Year 3 are very enthusiastic about the Trumpet Project. It has been a great success from the very first moment! They take pride in playing the trumpet and taking care of their instrument.
