Year 3 loved orienteering this week! Year 3 would definitely like to do this again. Thank you Mr Barron
Last week, year 3 started their Far Away Friday with a Kahoot Quiz and soon realised there was so much to learn about Jordon. So with this in mind, in teams, they set off on an outdoor fact finding mission. Soon they were scanning QR codes around the school yard and researching facts about Jordan such as traditional foods, the flag, language, their regions and the ancient city of Petra.
Year 3 have had a fabulous afternoon of Forest School! Our learning today was science based and all about soil. We got our hands nice and dirty by pulling it to pieces and looking at its composition. After we had investigated this and thought about the things that soil is useful for, we put on our gardening gloves and planted some wild flowers too.
Year 3 have been thinking about their time away from school and how important it is to be with people you love. To celebrate all the special women in their lives, they made cards and digital word clouds. Some children inserted voice recordings to send a special message too. Happy Mother’s Day!
On Tuesday 2nd March Year 5 spent the afternoon with Miss French collecting data about the planets in our solar system and then transporting that data into graphs, some of us even tried doing this on google sheets and evaluated our findings. We were very impressed with the results!
Homeschoolers from Year 3 are always keen to show off their computing skills. Tasked with producing a story map to plan the narrative of their poems, they set to work researching, inserting and arranging images using Jamboard. We think they look fantastic and will be a great help when they come to do more planning this week.
Last week, year 3 carefully created pencil drawings of their names in hieroglyphics then used acrylic paint to transfer their designs onto rocks. The rocks were used to imitate the walls of Tutankhamun’s tomb. They did a fantastic job and were really proud of their work!
‘We went into the garden after lunch for a quick half hour play in the snow Grace had so much fun making snow angels and making snowballs was great fun!’
Year 3 have been learning about hieroglyphics, the ancient Egyptian’s writing system. The ancient Egyptians wrote the names of their gods and royal people in an oval shape called a cartouche. The oval shape represents a rope with special powers to ward off evil spirits and keep the name inside it safe. Some of our children created their own cartouche, while others stained their paper to make it look just like dried papyrus!
Year 3 have been using their scientific knowledge about magnets to design and create their own games. They had to use objects that would be magnetic such as a paperclip or coin and decide if they wanted to create a race track, maze or fishing game. Lots of fun was had by all as they got to test them out and evaluate them after they had made them.
