Listen to our Samba song! We have been learning how to play an accompaniment, using chords, on the chime bars.
Welcome back to a new half-term!
Miss Latcham, Mrs Allison and Mrs Rogers hope you have all had a lovely break.
Our new themed topic is based on Folk, Fable and Fairytales. We are making hand-puppets as part of a DT project and we have been exploring the traditional tale of 'Rumpelstiltskin' so that we could create our own story following this style!
Why not explore our new topic: 'The Land of Make Believe'?!
We have enjoyed designing and creating our Egyptian amulets today out of clay! Horus became an Egyptian ruler after he won a battle. During this battle he lost his eye, so the 'Eye of Horus' became a symbol of protection.
Here is a freeze frame of the Mummification process!
1. The body was transported to the Ibu.
2. The body was washed with water from the Nile
3. The body was placed on the wabet.
4. The brain was removed by a hook inside the nose
10.The body was covered in salt&left to dry-40days
This morning, class 3L became embalmers! We mummified tomatoes by removing all the insides and then covered them with salt! This is so that we can see how the mummification process was used to preserve the bodies!
We have been busy creating our own Pyramid paintings using watercolors! They look fabulous, well done 3L!!
Miss Latcham and all of the Year 3 team wish you a Merry Christmas!
Have a lovely break and we look forward to seeing you all again soon for our next topic!
P.S. Don't forget to bring a shoe box in before Friday 8th January 2016
Welcome back Year 3!
Miss Latcham, Mrs Allison and Mrs Macdonald are excited about beginning a new topic with you this half-term...
We shall be learning all about our cute, little hedgehog friends. We will research their physical features and characteristics, their diet, habitat and their winter hibernation. We will also consider why their numbers have been reduced to dangerous levels and what we can do to try and help encourage hedgehog survival in our local area.
We will also use the clichéd 'Why did the hedgehog cross the road?' jokes to focus on road safety. We will role play crossing the road safely, design posters with road safety messages and share our learning with a younger year group.
After our successful Afternoon Tea, we will put our baking skills to the test again and bake something hedgehoggy!
3L have had a lovely couple of days and are feeling very festive!
All the Hedgehog Shelters have been sent home ready for Hedgehogs in hibernation!
Goodbye Mrs Bousfield! We brought our bears in to celebrate Mrs Bousfield's time at Torrisholme :)
