Topic: ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE!
Th Year 3s had 1 Maths problem to do. It was a challenging one that really got their minds working.
How would you work it out?
Pupils looked very creative dressed in Red and raising money for comic relief
We had some fantastic and brave violinists perform to the class! It was a treat for the class...
Pupils were finding out about OPAQUE, TRANSLUCENT and TRANSPAPRENT.
They had a go at looking around the school to see if they could find OPAQUE, TRANSLUCENT and TRANSPAPRENT materials.
WORLD BOOK DAY
Pupils came dressed up as a book character. They looked wonderful and their determination to make them so impressive really made the day!
Sean Taylor came into class to spend some time with us! He read us his amazing stories and inspired us to write a poem.
We spent some time chilled time reading any book, anywhere, anyplace in the classroom. We had blanket forts, pupils under the table, and lots of other creative places!
Today we have started off our LENGTH unit thinking about the different ways we can measure.
We looked at rulers to think about what was bigger - mm, cm or m?
Pupils had a go at ordering these. We then thought about a 'km' and how it was.
1km = 1000m
Was our playground a km? Was it smaller or bigger? We used a trundle wheel to investigate. It turns out that our playground is approximately 50m.
One member of the class was able to identify that you'd need 20 length of the playground to equal 1 km.
Half Term Ideas
(1) You might decide to visit the Wilson *again*! The museum has a drop in session over half term.
Pupils came into school looking amazing in their costumes. It was great that they had put so much effort into their costumes and it was wonderful that they could share facts about their chosen Era/person!
TRIP TO THE WILSON MUSEUM
Pupils have spent time creating these amazing Portraits of Ernest Shackleton. We were focusing on TONE with is achieved through shading. The children did a marvellous job!
Buzzards pupils dressed in green to celebrate Eco Day. They found out about Sustainability and also spent time thinking about our Green Code:
'BEING KEEN TO BE GREEN'
Pupils also spent their time writing their own ECO songs.
Buzzards is becoming very knowledgeable about an amazing Explorer; Ernest Shackleton.
We are finding out about his part in the race for the South Pole in the GOLDEN AGE OF HEROISM.
We have found out about his expeditions - DISCOVERY, NIMROD and all about the tragic TERRA NOVA expedition (led by Captain Scott).
Now that the South Pole has been reached we have to think about what there is left for Ernest to accomplish!
Last Thursday, pupils had the amazing opportunity to handle animals as part of our ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE topic!
Dan from ZOOLAB helped us to develop a respect for these wonderful creatures. We also learnt lots!
OUR NEW TOPIC
Pupils are incredibly excited about our new topic!
Here is a famous quote about Adventure. Do you know who it is spoken by?
'I believe it is in our nature to explore, to reach out into the great unknown.
The only true failure would be not to explore at all.'
Good luck finding out who said this!
