We have had a great day exploring ice today and what happens when we put it into warm water. We were excited to find out that when the ice melted, some dinosaurs appeared! We counted the dinosaurs that we found and also talked about what colour they were.
We have had lots of fun today cleaning the dirty dinosaurs. We talked about being dirty and how we could get clean. We had so much fun!
Today Year 3 began planning and designing their own Christmas stockings. They thought about what designs they would like to create, who they would be making it for and the colours they would like to use. Over the next couple of weeks they will begin to make their stockings.
The children have been using their fingers and paint to make marks on the dinosaur picture.
In the story, The Queen's Hat, the wind blows her hat off. For today's experience day, the children have been experiencing the impact of a windy day. We watched some windy day clips and thought of some key vocabulary. We then used a hair dryer (wind) to blow their hats off. This was very tricky to catch on camera but the children thoroughly enjoyed it! We then used a tissue paper and explored different ways to make wind (blowing, throwing, dropping...) and watched the affects it had.
In science this afternoon we have been recognising that sounds get fainter as the distance from the source increases.
We have had such a fun day celebrating children in Need! We even had Pudsey bear come and see us. Have a look at some of the photos of us all enjoying this special day.
This week for Children in Need, the children have been entering a competition in class designing a tshirt for someone that has been a positive person in their life. Thank you to Mrs Greenwood and Miss Tanner in the office for being the judges. The winners designs were amazing and they received their prizes in assembly this morning. If you would like to make a donation there is still time, please use Parent Pay. Thank you.
A huge well done to this week’s green jumper winners! You have all worked extremely hard this week and these jumpers are well deserved.
Well done to our weekly winners!
The children enjoyed learning all about Hibernation yesterday. We explored which animals hibernate and how they store their food for winter. We went out and collected leaves, twigs and food that the animals might need. The children then made houses for the hedgehogs to sleep in for winter.
Year 3 have begun to get ready for Christmas. In DT they are learning how to make Christmas Stockings. They have looked at lots of different designs and patterns that they could use and have been trying to thread their own needles as well as practicing sewing using different stitches.
