We have been planning and writing our own news reports, in groups, all about Paddington Bear and how he got lost at the station!
Day Two of making our 3D forms with Mrs Imlach. We have completed our papier-mâché and today we covered our bowls in white tissue - it's more porous than paper so soaked up the glue nicely. We now have a plain white surface for the next stage in our creations. Check in for an update soon on how our bowls are coming along!
Next we will use Howard Hodgkin as our inspiration to paint our bowls.
Well done to all the children in Branson class who read over the Christmas holidays!
Today was Mrs Matthews' Reading Raffle assembly, there are many books to win, if you read 5 times a week! Our Y3 winner was very pleased with his choice.
Our new whole class Guided Reading text is paddington Bear. We are all enjoying reading in Branson class!
Today Y3 went on a fantastic trip to Saxmundham Free School. We spent the morning delving into history and learning more about King John. We had to decide what kind of king he was based on the different sources. We found out information about him and in our groups we drew caricatures of him, collected adjectives to describe him and sorted the sources into good and bad. By the end of the morning we had decided that he really was a bad king!!! It was great fun and we learnt a lot.
Today in Year 3 we have started our new unit on Dips and Dippers. We discussed different types of dip and dippers and tasted 5 different types of dips, using nachos and carrot sticks that we cut up ourselves.
Tasting the 5 dips: Salsa, Guacamole, Humous, Sour Cream and Chive and Cheese, helped us decide which dip we might like to make ourselves. Mrs Matthews was so proud of us because we were all so sensible and willing to try all the dips and made sure that we used a sharp knife carefully and safely. A great start to a new Design Technology project.
To end our science topic of rocks we had to find the crystals which were buried inside the 3 rocks! We used equipment to chip away at the rock which revealed the crystals. The children loved this activity!
In art we have been reading the poem 'The Hippocrump' the children then responded to the poem by drawing a picture of what they thought the Hippocrump looked like. We came up with lots of individual ideas which all look fantastic!
Some of you may have noticed the incorrect spelling on this weeks list, I apologise for the mistake.
The correct spelling of the word is:
We will practice this in class before the test.
