This week we have celebrated the 50th birthday of Ladybrook Primary school. On Tuesday we had a 1970s dress up day and everyone got involved. Don't Year 3 all look very retro in the costumes.
Over the week we have found out all about the 'noughties' from 2000-2009 and our class activities have been based on that decade. In the 2000s there was a big boom in cupcakes so we made some of our own.
As year 3 have missed out on Forest School this year we spent the morning enjoying some time in our forest school area. The children were split into 3 groups. One group painted using blackberry juice and feathers, one group made pictures with shells and natural materials and the other group did a scavenger hunt around the school grounds to try and find 50 different natural objects to fit in their boxes. It was a fabulous morning outside.
In computing this term we have been using the Lego WEdo kits to investigate input and output. year 3 built a model then used the ipads to programme them.
Year 3 have kicked off their home learning to a great start. Below is a selection of the Science and Art work they were given this week. In Science they learned about soil and the layers of soil. I’m Art they learned about drawing the negative space around an object.
Santa Dash 2020
Last week year 3 took part in a Santa Dash organised by the PTA to raise money for school fund. Everyone came into school in their Christmas jumpers and had a time slot on the track. Year 3 loved it and whizzed round looking very festive. Enjoy the photo graphs below.
Last term Year 3 had a go at Cave painting after learning about cave paintings as part of our topic. They looked at examples of cave paintings and looked at what was painted by people in the Stone Age. They then used natural materials (and some pastels) to create their own cave paintings in pairs and on the classroom wall. See if you can see examples of animals, hunting, Stone Age camps and hand prints.
Welcome to the Year 3 Class Page.
Today Year 3 spent the morning outside in our forest school area. Their challenge was to work in their groups to create a Stone Age den only using what they could find in the area. They all worked very well together using skills such as problem solving, compromise, negotiating and collaborating to create their team den. They also had to show patience , perseverance and resilience especially when some of the dens collapsed before they were finished.
Year 3 then got time to explore the dens, improvise some tool making and imagine what life would have been like without modern technology. They loved being out doors. We also had a look at what natural materials could be use to make marks, just as people in the Stone Age would have done to create their cave paintings. Some children found some charcoal in the fire they used to decorate their den.
Have a look at our photographs below. See if you can recognise any tools being made.
