P.E.

On Tuesday 12th March, some visitors from Tameside School Games came in to work with us.  Five activities were set up including, Pirate Plank, Make a Racket and Zig-Zag.  We were set a personal challenge which was to beat our own scores/times on each activity.  We really enjoyed ourselves.

World Book Day

On Thursday 7th March, we celebrated World Book Day.  We dressed up as different book characters, took part in lots of different book activities and, along with the rest of the school, enjoyed the story Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae.  Have a look at our photos and see if you can work out who we dressed up as.

We have started the second half term with our new English topic which is play scripts.  On Monday 25th January, we worked with a partner and started to identify some of the features of plays and play scripts.  We talked about plays that we had seen, including school plays.  At the end of this unit of work, we are hoping to put on a play for the other Year 3 class....watch this space!

Rocks and Fossils

This term, we have been learning about rocks and fossils.  We made careful observations of different rocks and used magnifying glasses to look even closer.  In our books, we then described the rocks using interesting adjectives.  We enjoyed learning about fossils and the life of Mary Anning.

Making careful observations

Clayton Hall 2018

On Thursday 13th December, we enjoyed a magical day out at Clayton Hall.  In the morning, we had a very special visit from Father Christmas.  After singing some songs, talking with Father Christmas and receiving a present, we took part in some Christmas crafts where we made some Victorian Christmas decorations/toys.

After dinner, we dressed up as Victorian children and went round the different rooms in Clayton Hall.  In each room, there were activities to do and we found out lots of interesting information.  We had a great day out and we thank all the volunteers at Clayton Hall for a wonderful experience.

Healthy Eating

As part of our science topic about food and nutrition, we made our own healthy soup.  We brought in lots of different vegetables including onions, broccoli, potatoes and peppers, then we chopped them all up, added some water and waited!

Working Together in Maths and English

This week we have been working well together.  In maths, we have been learning about the properties of 2D shapes and sorting them into a Venn diagram.  As part of our work in English, about George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl, we have been creating our own adverts for a magic potion.

Our Visit to the Moravian Settlement in Droylsden

On Tuesday 18th September we visited the Fairfield Moravian settlement.  We had a great morning and learned lots of interesting facts about the settlement.  In the first part of the morning, we went into the church and had a walk around the 'village'.  After that, we took part in 3 activities which were looking at old artefacts, dressing up as a Moravian settler and looking around the small, but fascinating, museum.

Have a look at our slide show to see for yourself!
