Year 3 have been working hard this week. We have been learning all about adverbs and how they can be used to describe movements; they even transformed into dragons on the playground and explored how dragons fly and move across land.
Continuing with our dragon theme, the class have also started to create their own dragon eye pictures. We hope to finish them next week, so look out for them on the blog next week.
Today, the class worked in groups on some different mathematical problems. They used counters, multilink, dice and pictorial representations to help them.
Another great week - well done, everyone!
Have a lovely weekend.
The class have had a great first week; they have been busy making a rather special discovery on the school field, enjoying their first PE lesson with Saints coach, Mr Berry and creating beautiful artwork.
A rather special egg.
On Tuesday, the class went onto the field to listen to the sounds, investigate their surroundings and think of adjectives to describe the things they could see and hear. They couldn't believe it when they found something rather unexpected...
All the children have been incredibly excited about finding this rather special egg and have come up with all sorts of predictions for what could be inside. After seeing some footage of dragons in flight, the class have decided it is most likely a dragon egg! But what kind of dragon could it be?
Next week, the class will be sketching dragon eyes and adding colour to them with different materials, so this week we investigated blending. The class went to work with pastels, chalks, paints and pencil crayons to decide which colours blended easily and which were the most vibrant.
A great week, everyone. Well done!
Have a lovely weekend.
It was wonderful to see all the children today and welcome them back to school. Every child has made a fantastic effort on their first day and I'm really excited to see how they progress during the year.
We've spent the day getting to know the layout of the classroom, the new timings and routines of KS2, working together on some team and class challenges and investigating colour mixing in art this afternoon.
A great first day back - well done, everyone!
