3H

       Welcome to 3H laugh

 the terrific team of Mrs Hunter

and Mrs Rogers

 

 

Happy New Year!

We're looking forward to an exciting Spring Term!

Our new topic this half term really captures the children's interest - Ancient Egypt.

We shall explore the life and beliefs of this ancient civilisation with a particular focus on the importance of the River Nile and the process of mummification. We shall spend time focusing on HOW we know about the lives of people from so long ago.

Let's 'Walk Like an Egyptian!'

 

 

At Torrisholme, we are continuously striving to develop ways to encourage our children to read for pleasure. We have created a ‘HOT BOOKS’ list of 30 up-to-date, age-appropriate texts, compiled from a range of suggested reading lists. This is not an exhaustive list of fabulous year group appropriate books but is more a fun challenge list for our children to explore texts written in a wide range of styles by a selection of current and popular children’s authors.

 

How many can your child read or share with you?

 

On your marks…

          get set…

                                and READ!

Fantastic friction! Today we investigated friction. The Egyptians used wet sand to move huge rocks so we put this to the test. We found that the dry sand dragged along with the block making it tricky to pull. It had high friction. After we soaked the sand it was much easier to pull the block. It had low friction.

This half term, 3H are learning how to fence. Today, we were taught how to stand properly and make an attack.

As we have been learning about the process of mummification, Mrs Taylor had Year 3 riveted watching her mummify ‘Malcolm the Mackerel’, this afternoon! He is now totally immersed in salt and bicarbonate of soda to replicate the process of drying out. We will check on him at the end of this term.

We have been learning how to divide by 3 and 4 leaving a remainder, starting with a very practical method of making squares and triangles and seeing how many are left over?

Sequins at the ready!

The time has arrived, we’re ready to take the stage.

Here’s a sneaky peak to build your excitement!

We can’t wait!

Today, we explored musical instruments and objects of the rainforest.

To introduce the children to performing, we learnt β€˜Bug Chant’ by Tony Mitton. As you can see, we have some budding actors and actresses!

Volcano and Folk Tale Parent Share - thank you for your support. The children absolutely LOVED sharing their work with you all.

In science, we enjoyed testing 3 different types of soils to see which one drained the quickest. The soil from Bramble Corner was the slowest and the compost was the quickest.
