Year 3 - Mrs Godson/Mrs Dudley

Beautiful Bar Charts no

Well done on great bar chart work this morning. We made one together first of all using counters and I was very impressed when Archie told us all about the x and y axis. Then some of us practised answering questions about bar charts using mathematical language such as "more than" and "fewer than" whilst others created a bar chart about garden birds.

 

Our super learning continued into English with some amazing acrostic poems about volcanoes. There were  so many interesting and creative similes that we could have written hundreds of lines of poetry!!!

 

I am looking forward to finding more out about volcanoes and Pompeii tomorrow.

Our reading tree is growing!

We have had another fun week with lots of super learning. I have been really impressed by your number line work and some of the diagrams that you drew of the Earth's structure were fantastic. Well done. You have also all worked hard on the pantomime, especially the really tricky "race" song.

 

Our reading tree has sprouted LOTS of leaves as so many of you are reading EVERY night at home. Wow! Remember that you earn a leaf for every short book that you finish reading or for every chapter that you read in a long book. Please make sure that your grown-up signs your reading record. I wonder who is going to will our class challenge?

PS Don't forget to claim your raffle ticket for every new word that you look up in a dictionary when you are reading. Remember that you can use a dictionary at home or those at school.

 

Chocolate Rocks!!

This afternoon we learnt more about the three main rock types and how they are formed. To help us remember, we made chocolate rocks.

 

Sedimentary rocks - we made these with layers of different colour chocolate, which we squeezed flat.

Metamorphic rock - we made these by squeezing the sedimentary rocks tightly and melting them into a ball.

Igneous rock - we didn't have time to do this one today but we will melt some sedimentary and metamorphic rock in warm water.

 

Here are a few pictures of our rocks!

PS

You did some fantastic number lines in maths today too. Well done :D

Wonderful Week :)

What a great first week back we have had! First we exploded your volcanoes on Wednesday and then on Thursday we had the interesting rock talk by Mrs Lilley. We also explored lots of different rocks in our circle time in class. Then on Friday we created some fabulous collages of erupting volcanoes for our class display. Oh and don't forget the super presentation that you showed in your numeracy work too and your calm behaviour during the fire drill.

There have been so many smile moments this week and I know that there will be even more next week. I think that our smile board may soon be covered!!!!

Welcome back....... to exploding volcanoes!!

 

It was lovely to see you all again today and I really enjoyed exploding the volcanoes with you in the afternoon. We had lots of fantastic models, some with sparkly red lava. We were also lucky enough to have not one but two chocolate volcano cakes! Yummy!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

 

Thank you for a wonderful day :) I have had such fun decorating Christmas biscuits with you and making the hanging angels. I also really enjoyed playing party games - you are getting really good at physical noughts and crosses.

 

Mrs Dudley :)

Christmas Crafts!

We have had another busy day in 3G, completing Christmas challenges in maths and English as well as making some beautiful Christmas cards this afternoon. I really enjoyed playing physical noughts and crosses with you this morning. I wonder who will win tomorrow??

 

Mrs Dudley :)

Fantastic Party Day!

We have had a very busy day in 3G, making sweets  and designing a hat for our class snowman. We even managed to squeeze in some party games too :) Mrs Radford and I hope that you enjoyed yourself and would like to thank you for a lovely day.

Fantastic Skipping!

Well done everyone on fabulous skipping today. Dan was also very impressed with your listening skills and effort :D I was really proud of you all.

 

I have uploaded a few photographs of our session. My apologies for the shadow......the lens cover on the ipad had opened without me noticing. It must have been all the skipping that I was doing that shook it loose!
