We enjoyed sharing our new books from today's book swap with our year 5, reading buddies!

Today we found out how films began. We learnt that it all started over a debate about whether or not all four hooves of a horse left the ground when a horse gallops! We enjoyed using the ipads to take still images and then scrolled through them quickly to make our moving image.

R.E Theme Day

Christians believe that Jesus is the light of the world. A candle is often used to remind Christians of this. We have created some fabulous candles using water colours and collage.

Today we have had a Christianity themed day. Our focus was the central figure of the religon, Jesus. Thank you to all of our speakers and helpers. It has been an informative and interesting day for all.

Autumn 1

 

 

We hope you have had a fabulous summer and like us, you are ready to get stuck into our first exciting topic...

The Land of the Pharaohs.

 

 

We will research the Ancient Egyptian hierarchy, study mummification and find out about the importance of the River Nile.

We have many creative activities planned, including painting landscapes, hieroglyphics and using clay to create Egyptian jewellery.

 

Please check your child's book bags and home/ school diaries for letters and information. 

3W have P.E on a Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

 

 

 

Today, we have turned ourselves into Egyptians!

Preparations have begun! Don't forget, tomorrow is Egyptian day!

We thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories together. Thank you to all that were able to come.

On Tuesday, we enjoyed making Egyptian bread- 'Eesh baladi'. Many ancient Eyptians would have eaten this daily. We found out that it was bread that caused Ancient Egyptian's teeth to wear down as it had grit and sand in it. However our bread was delicious because we left the sand out!

Monday began with us analysing non-fiction texts. We were challenged to find many things including: headings, subheadings, paragraphs, fact boxes, questions and labelled diagrams.

This afternoon, we have been learning about farming techniques in Ancient Egypt. We focussed particularly on how the farmers were able to transfer the water from the Nile to water their crops. They used a contraption called a 'shaduf'. The children were challenged to build one using newspaper, a ruler, some blutack and cellotape! They had to work as team and we had some successes. Take a look.

Once again, we have been thinking about team work and the skills required to be a team player. Today, an observer noted down the ways that the groups made their decisions.

Here we are locating information in books to answer our research questions.

This afternoon, we have enjoyed exercising our BLP Muscles. In pairs, children created an obstacle course. Then they had to take it in turns to guide each other through the course whilst closing their eyes.

Thankyou, Bali- We enjoyed looking at your statues. We look forward to finding out more about them through our research of the Ancient Egyptians.

We really enjoyed retelling the story of 'The Egyptian Cinderella' through freeze framing.

Here we are busy making our maps of Ancient Egypt.

This week, we generated our own research questions through exploring different artifacts linked to the Ancient Egyptians.

In Maths, We have been recognising the place value of the digits in 3 digit numbers and have been representing them in different ways.

Team building and problem solving was the aim of today! The children had to: build the tallest Jenga tower, build pyramids with Lego and large blocks, use pipes to get water to travel from the tap to the stream and to make a piece of playdoh or paper float!

Finally, they had to wrap toilet paper round one of their team members to mummify them!! The winner was Tilly's team!

Well done, 3W, we're ready to start the year.

 

Today, 3W took on the 'tallest tower' competition. They were challenged to make a free standing structure using only art straws and tape. The winning tower was 130cm tall. Every group displayed fantastic team work skills- Well done, Team 3!

Our first day has flown by! What a great start to the year, team 3W! Today we have been focusing on being part of a team.
