Welcome to a new year in Hazel Class! We are settling in well and having fun. It's only been a few weeks and we are enjoying our lessons. Some people go to Mrs Sweeney for Maths and English and it is brilliant. Our first topic is the Village Settlers and it is different in Year 3 because we get to choose what we learn and we work independently. We made viking houses and longships with our learning partners and it was very difficult and fiddly.
In Science we are looking at how plants grow well. In Thrilling Thursdays (outdoor learning) we have been weeding, looking at roots and growing seeds from apples, plums and peaches. We have been growing carrot, beetroot and parsnip tops.
We are learning French with Mrs Sweeney - we can say Bonjour, Comment ca va?, ca va bien merci and Je m'appelle. We have counted up to twenty too. We do RE with Mrs Hotchin and have been learning about the Harvest.
In PE we have been learning how to play skittleball.
So far we have enjoyed Year 3 it is excellent, fantastic and terrific!!
We've been in Year 3 a few weeks now. On Thursday we went on a big walk, we were looking for seeds - acorns, horse chestnuts, hawthorns and sycamore unfortunately we couldn't find any sycamore or horse chestnuts. The weather was lovely and we lay on the grass and some people played 'hibernating hedgehogs'. We were really lucky with the weather because it has been quite rainy.
Welcome back to the new half term!!
We have started a new topic in Science - moving and growing. We are learning about our skeletons, the names of the bones and what job the skeleton does.
We have also started our DT topic on packaging - so far we have looked at lots of different packaging and what makes a good package. We have thought about color, font and packaging nets. We are looking forward to designing and making our own packaging.
But the big news is ........ WE HAVE OUR PARTS FOR THE PANTOMIME CINDERELLA!!!!!!
We are busy learning our lines and are looking forward to beginning rehearsals. We are looking forward to getting parts like the Year 4s next year - we think its going to be Jack and the Beanstalk.
In PE this half term we are doing gym - so far we have thought about balancing and moving. We have worked individually, in pairs and in fours. The four work was the most tricky because we had to work as a team!
It is the end of our first term in Year 3. We loved being in the pantomime and we hope you all enjoyed seeing it. We can't wait until Year 4 when we have the main parts! We have had lots of fun in the run up to Christmas. There has been the carol service, the trip to sleeping beauty at the Palace Theatre, the Christmas lunch and the Christmas party! We have made cards, calendars and baubles. We can't wait until Christmas it is so close now.
Come back to our page in 2013 and see all the exciting things we will be doing next term!
Happy Christmas and A Happy New Year!!!
Welcome back to a New Year in Hazel Class - it is February already we have been so busy. Our new topic has been the Tudors we have been learning lots of things and painted some fantastic pictures for our Tudor Gallery. We are doing our class assembly about the Tudors on February 15th we are getting it all sorted out and have some great songs to sing.
We are swimming this term we go to Abbey Stadium with the Year 1 children. It is great fun and we see Mrs Goodman which is really good.
Today we had a special assembly and Fay and Boon came to visit us and tell us about Chinese New Year. The new year will be the Year of the Snake. We found out that we are either born in the Year of the Monkey or the Rooster - Mrs Hotchin is the Year of the Dragon.
It will soon be half term and it is a very short time until Easter so we have lots to pack in before then so we will be very busy!.
Welcome back after half term. We really enjoyed our fantastic Tudor Assembly. We have put some photos of it on our page and of the brilliant Tudor paintings that we did. We wish we could still learn about the Tudors but our new topics are Magnets and Springs and Friction in Science. But in outdoor learning we are going to make Tudor houses so that will be fun. We are still learning Spanish with Mrs Sweeney and have half a term left of swimming.
We have been learning about Easter in RE and this week we thought about what we could give up for Lent.
We are reaching half term now - there is only one more half term left before we finsh in Year 3. Yesterday we went on a whole school trip to Dudley Zoo. The trip was awesome, fantastic, exciting and perfect. We saw epic sea lions, lovely lions, meerkats, cool monkeys, fast kookaburras. jumpy lemurs and terrific tigers. We are learning about teeth and eating in Science and in our outdoor learning we have been doing habitats.
Come back and see what we do in our final half term before we go into Year 4. We will be doing a secret rap.....shhhhhh!
