This term our research topic is 'Extreme Earth'. We will be learning about volcanoes, earthquakes and planet earth. In science, we are going to explore forces and magnets. We are starting a new English unit of work on explanation texts. Wallace and Gromit will feature in our work as well as some other amazing contraptions. We launched our English work by building marble runs, then, we designed our own and worked together to build our own marble runs.
Look at the photos of us working together on our marble runs.
In R.E, we have been looking at how different religions celebrate important festivals. Today (19th November) we were learning about how Hindus celebrate Diwali. People often use Rangoli patterns to decorate the floors so we went into the playground and created our own Rangoli patterns using chalk.
George's Marvellous Medicine
In English, we enjoyed making our own amazing potions. We are now writing our own versions of this wonderful story by Roald Dahl.
Welcome to 3F - 2019/2020
Welcome to 3F's class page. The children have had a wonderful first week back at school and have been working hard. In English, we have started to read George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl and are looking forward to making our own 'magical' potions. During our maths lessons, we have been partitioning numbers, comparing numbers and practising our times tables.
Our theme for this half term is 'Food, Glorious Food!' We will be learning about nutrition in science, as well as creating our own healthy soups.
Keep checking our class page as soon, we will be adding photos of some of the great learning that has been going on in our classroom.
In English, we have been learning about playscripts. We began by reading different playscripts including Little Red Riding Hood. Look at our photos and videos of our performances.
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.
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.
Stone Age Day
On Tuesday 29th January, our class took part in a Stone Age workshop. We learnt all about Stone Age tools, Stone Age food and Stone Age clothes.
Welcome to 3F's class page. The children have settled in really well and are working hard. This term, our research topic is 'Local History and Georgraphy'. As part of our learning, we will be visiting the local Moravian settlement in Droylsden, going to Ryecroft Hall and visiting Clayton Hall. In science, we will be learning about food and nutrition, skeletons and muscles.
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.
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!
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.
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.
