News from Year 3

What a busy first week back after the half term break! We have enjoyed continuing our learning about Ulf the finger eater in English. We are planning to rewrite chapter 4 of the book to detail how we would have out smarted the pesky troll.

In Computing, we continued with our learning about being presenters. We filmed a series of short clips, in pairs, of ourselves performing a skill or trick. We were mindful to capture a range of different shots from a number of angles. Next week, we will editing these clips to create a short video and exploring voice overs.

We also started out new PE learning this week, Outdoor and Adventurous (OAA). OAA involves problem solving and working as a team. We had to arrange ourselves in height order without talking to each other. We found this tricky as team work is all about communication!

We rounded off the week by starting our learning about plants in Science. We started by discussing what we already knew about plants and then examined a real flowering plant. We then labelled different parts of a plant and described each of their functions. After that, we created a leaflet to help us remember these functions. Have a look at your leaflets below:

Have a great weekend and enjoy the long overdue sunshine,

Miss Battams and Ms McCarthy 🙂
