In our PSHE lesson the children looked at things that matter to to them the most, they put these in the middle of the spiral. As they worked their way to the outside of the spiral they thought about things that matter to them on a bigger scale, such as protecting the environment and helping the local area.
Today the children made meter sticks and measured different objects around the classroom in meters and centimetres.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our forest school sessions over the last few weeks! Our favourite session was when it snowed and it turned Narnia into a winter wonderland!
Yesterday Tom from Explore Learning came in to Year 3 to teach us all about coordinates. We used our knowledge of north, east, south and west to navigate our ship to the treasure without hitting any rocks!
The children enjoyed their last session of forest school, even if it was wet and windy. They enjoyed exploring the river and hot chocolate under the shelter.
Today the children in year 3 had a visit from Tom from Explore Learning. We learnt all about coordinates and navigated our way round a treasure map! Well done everyone, you worked really head!
As part of Children’s Mental Health Week the children have been enjoying taking part in lots of brain breaks such as body percussion, My Inner Being time, the Daily Mile and mindfulness colouring.
Year 3 made a very exciting discovery today, some HUGE footprints! At first we thought they belonged to Buddy, but we soon realised they were too large. We followed the footprints and they lead us to Mrs B’s room where she had found our new class book ‘How To Wash a Woolly Mammoth’. We realised that we have had some mysterious prehistoric creatures spotted strolling around the school grounds.
This week is National Story Telling Week and to celebrate the children in 3M were lucky enough to meet Robin Simpson this morning and listen to his interactive storytelling of the Greek myth Theseus and the Minotaur. The children joined in with songs and completed a poetry task! Well done 3M your behaviour was outstanding!!!
National Storytelling Week is fantastic annual event. It is a joyful celebration of the power of sharing stories. Stories teach us about the world, they allow us to step into someone else’s shoes and feel empathy, they help us to relax and escape and they can help develop essential literacy skills.
