Monday 26th November - Making Gingerbread
We have started to make gingerbread this week to sell at the Christmas Fayre! All of the children are involved and are learning about following instructions, measuring and the importance of hygiene! We will be cutting out the shapes and baking this afternoon. The gingerbread should be ready to decorate on Tuesday and Wednesday before finishing touches on Thursday morning. Please come and support the Year 3 stall.
Toy Shop Maths
Today the children made their own toy shops to practise mental strategies. Our focus was working out change from £2. We had lots of role play buying and selling in the shops. The children all worked hard but we had a few forget to pay!
Techniquest Light Dome
We have had a fascinating experience in the light dome this morning! We learned about how light travels, colours of light, light sources and wore special glasses that let us see how light is split into colours by different gases.
This week we have been focusing on Welsh activities. We have designed our own dragons, dramatically retold the tale of the ‘afanc’, and played games in Welsh. As always, we have been improving our teamwork skills with Year 4!
Year 3 and 4 Project
While some children are away at Pentre, the rest of Year 3 and 4 are finding out about “learning powers”. We’re planning our own movies using iMovie to explain to everyone what these are. Watch out Steven Spielberg!
We’re starting a unit on story poems this week using ‘Where the Poppies Now Grow’ by Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey. We’ve started to learn the text and are doing really well! Ask your child to tell you what they’ve learned so far. Today the children worked with their learning partner to map out the text using pictures.
Welcome to Year 3!
The children are starting to settle in well and have been working hard. We've done some team building activities, pictures below.
