We are feeling like Christmas has come early in Year 3 as we have had at least 50 brand new, beautiful books purchased for each class!!

Today, we were so excited to start enjoying reading them! Lots of children have mentioned that there’s definitely a few that they are wanting to add to their Christmas lists this year.

On the link below, you will find a recommended book list for children in Year 3.

A coat for Raphie28-11-2019 | 20:03:54 | No Comments

This afternoon saw us urgently researching materials for a night-time walking coat for Raphie…

Remember him?

Being the growing boy that he is, he needs his walks… but it’s dark! We need to keep him safe and warm, so he needs a coat that’s reflective.

Look at all the wonderful science we discovered…

This short video also shows that not only would Raphie be safe in sequins, he would also be extremely stylish:

We rolled our sleeves up today to get stuck into our third and final drafts of our non-chronological science reports about humans and other animals. With a difference this time: we’re word-processing them! Just think of all the pictures, diagrams, colour and extra detail we can add with the application of technology and access to the wealth of further research online.

Hundreds of Henges28-11-2019 | 19:04:35 | No Comments

Friday 22nd November saw Year 3 grownups flocking to Werrington Primary to see what we had in store.

We’re not sure that they were prepared for just how messy a morning we had in store for them….

There were some amazing examples of observation, communication, collaboration, and teamwork. Many seemed to really get back to their Potteries roots with all that clay around, producing primitive production lines of prehistoric perfection.

After an hour’s worth of determined teamwork, it was time for the quiz, just to see just how well people had been listening 🙂 …

It was a hard-fought battle, but Team IDL just pulled ahead at the end.

What an uproar! It sounded like an episode of It’s a Knockout.

Finally, while the children had a hard-earned play, the grownups collapsed in chairs for a well-deserved brew and a bite of Biscuit Henge.

Thanks so much to all of the grownups for giving their time and expertise in creating our masterful monuments! We simply couldn’t have done it without you.

Forest School Hunting23-11-2019 | 15:53:21 | Comments Off on Forest School Hunting

Year 3 weren’t put off by the drizzly weather yesterday afternoon. They began thinking like a Stone Age hunter by playing a game of ‘Predators and Prey’ where the prey were hiding and trying to avoid being caught. They also began using tools to create spears from sticks to help with the capture of dinner. A super afternoon’s work 🙂

This week in 3CL, we have been reading chapters 9-10 of Fantastic Mr Fox. As we read, we came across lots of new and unfamiliar vocabulary so we decided to become dictionary detectives and go on a hunt for the words. Between us, we successfully managed to find the definition of all of the words that we were unsure of! Well done 3CL!

Year 3 now know all about the bones inside their bodies.

How many can you name?

Building dwellings16-11-2019 | 09:57:26 | Comments Off on Building dwellings

Year 3 got back to their Stone Age roots on Friday…

Learning about three different types of structures…

And working together as a team to gather resources…

And build one…

Fun was had….

The weather’s looking cloudy but dry(ish) this weekend, it might be an ideal opportunity to get out in the open air and appreciate the Autumn colour…

Take some friends, wonder at some more modern-day structures and what on Earth they were for…

And maybe build a dwelling for real. Or, help to finish one that’s already started? This monster is in Hanchurch Woods. Can you find it?

‘The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus’08-11-2019 | 15:53:11 | Comments Off on ‘The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus’

This week in computing, we considered whether everything that we read on the internet is always true.

We were all fooled by a very convincing website about an endangered tree octopus. A little bit of research showed us that it doesn’t actually exist and that we were reading information from a spoof website!

From this, we came up with some ideas for our own ‘spoof’ web pages. Check back over the next couple of weeks to see quite how believable we can make our web pages!
