After making charcoal in the wild life garden yesterday, Year 3 were able to create our own cave painting style art on one of the walls on the playground. We had lots of fun doing so. Take a look – what images can you spot?

In Literacy the whole school has focused on the text ‘Little Red’ by Bethan Woollvin. In Year 3, our main focus has been to retell the story whilst creating our own ending. In order to do this we have been practising lots of Talk for Writing and using actions to memorise the story as well […]

Some of our most cherished possessions were: family photos, our favourite toy/ blanket, necklaces or rings and PS4s. […]
Year 3 have been learning about different London Landmarks including: London Eye, Big Ben, St Pauls Cathedral, Downing Street and Tower Bridge. In groups we researched different facts, drew a picture using oil pastels and presented our information to the class, just like a tour guide would. Can you think of some other London Landmarks?
We have been learning about mass and capacity. For our last Maths lesson, in Year 3, we went to the playground and experimented with different containers and tubs. We were measuring their total capacity and comparing which object had the greatest or least capacity. We then recorded our results in a table.
Year 3/4 have had so much fun today Teepee making in the playground. This was inspired by our Stone Age topic in term 1. We all helped to position the wooden posts and wrap the canvas around. We loved getting to go inside.
To help develop our understanding of how a clock works as well as being able to tell the time we made clocks today in maths. We made sure we labelled the minute and hour hand, o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We then decorated our clocks to make them unique to us.
