Wow, wow, wow!
We have some incredible performers in Year 3. We have been completely blown away by their performance in our Year 3 and 4 play. They were outstanding and did so well learning two quite tricky songs.
It was lovely to see lots of friends and family come along to see Oliver and thank you to all the children for putting on such a show. Very, very proud of them.
A big thank you to Mrs Dunn who very kindly spent a lot of time (including her own time) teaching us the songs and guiding us through both rehearsals and the performances, as well as choreographing the scenes for Year 3. Mrs Dunn is incredibly talented and provides the children with such wonderful musical experiences.
I would also like to say big thank you to Mrs Glover who went above and beyond in sourcing and organising props for all the children; her knowledge of the school and where things are hidden is unrivalled!
Finally, the biggest thank you to all of Year 3, you should be so proud of yourselves. Well done.
We have spent a lot of this week practising for our show with Year 4. The children have learnt how to manage choreography along with managing their props simultaneously which was a challenge to start with! I have been so proud of how well they have done, we can’t wait for you to come and see it.
We are authors!
This week in English, we have been writing our own versions of the story ‘A River’ by Marc Martin. The children have worked hard to think of their own mode of transport and where they would travel to. We use storyboards to plan and map out our journeys. The children have spent today writing and editing their stories. You can watch the original story below and, if you are lucky, the children may give you a sneak peak to their version!
In Science, we have been investigating how magnets work. This week, we were testing if magnets worked without direct contact with the object. Here are the children testing if the magnet can move the metal paperclip through paper- some children managed to move the paperclip through 24 layers of paper!
Happy World Book Day 2023!
There were so many wonderful costumes in Year 3 and across the school. It was a joy chatting to the children and hearing about the characters they had chosen to dress as. We even learnt about books some of us hadn't heard of before and were inspired to read, for example Peanut Jones.
We spent the day doing lots of book orientated activities. Online the author of Dave Pigeon, Swapna Haddow, read the world book day book of Dave Pigeon. This was followed by a tutorial from Sheena Dempsey, illustrator, on how to draw our very own Dave Pigeon.
After break, we had the privilege of walking up to Little Beacons and sharing stories with the pre-school children. Year 3 did really well interacting with the little ones. They showed their patience, kindness and empathy when dealing with children who weren't sure to start with. The engagement the children had was fantastic to see, even creating activities and games to play while reading the books.
Well done Year 3 and thank you Little Beacons for welcoming us in to your environment!
