Our Year 3 Anglo-Saxons

A huge thank you to all parents and guardians who have helped the children to create their 'Anglo-Saxon' costumes. They are all absolutely stunning! The children loved trying them on and posing for their photos. They'll have an amazing time at Escot next week wearing them. smiley

Farewell Year 3! We will miss each one of you! We are looking forward to watching you grow in Year 4 and beyond, achieving so much.

 

We would like to say a huge 'thank you' to the parents for all your support throughout the year. We also really appreciate the lovely cards, letters, thoughtful comments and treats that we have received this week. It has been a privilege to be part of the childrens' learning journey and a pleasure getting to know our extended St. Andrew's families!

Best wishes for the future,

Mrs Dean, Miss Mann & Miss Jones.

Year 3 Spanish Day!

We had such fun visiting Lorenzo's restaurant for some delicious tapas food. A huge 'Thank You' to John's mum Jen for arranging our trip and to Jacob and Alex, the chefs who created our feast. Ana taught us the days of the week by teaching us a song and we were lucky enough to be taught some Flamenco dancing by the talented Miss Mallard. An amazing day all round!

Year 3 and 4 Residential to Magdalen Farm

We had such an amazing few days at Magdalen farm and were blessed with such wonderful weather. All the children were impeccably behaved, well mannered and a pleasure to take away. Activities included; orienteering, feeding the farm animals, watering and picking vegetables, collecting hen eggs, making sandwiches, building shelters in the woods and collecting and identifying river species. The children (and staff) had so much fun! smiley

Summer Term

Welcome back to a fun-filled and exciting Summer term. Our topic is 'Roman Invaders'. We look forward to a visit from a Roman Legionary, who will tell stories of times in the Roman Army. 

We have our class assembly on Wednesday 24th May and 'Sports Day' on Thursday 25th May.

The Year 3 and 4 residential to Magdalen Farm takes place on 14th - 16th June. We are very excited about that! smiley

Our Roman shields are well under way - photos below. Many thanks to all the parents who gave up their time to patiently support us with this tricky project. We are really proud of how they are taking shape. Our Roman visitor was very impressed with their authentic looking construction! 

 

Roman Assembly Song 'Invade!'

Please practise our song as much as you can. It is important that everyone is confident with the chorus. Choose a verse to learn thoroughly; we will decide on singing groups next week. If you are not keen on singing, learn verse 3, which is more like a rap.

Spoken: Let me tell you about the first millennium!

The Roman legions crossed the sea

to the shores of Britain in forty three.

They built their forts and their roads and towns.

We all serve Emperor Claudius now.

With the gladius and shield

And the javelins they wield

Taking elephants and catapults

Across the battlefield

Putting Britons in their graves

Taking taxes, making slaves

They took command to the edge of the Pict lands.

Romans!

 

Invade! Invade!

Blood and gore and history made.

Invade! Invade!

This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!

Spoken: Let me tell you about the Dark Ages...

 

The Saxons plundered, Rome withdrew.

Then the Angles came and others too.

They farmed and fought their way inland

With the ox and plough and a spear in hand.

Many Saxon kings would reign 

Over churls and over thanes.

Every kingdom came out fighting

Then they'd do it all again.

There were lots of little wars,

Funny Anglo Saxon laws.

They ruled like this for the next three centuries.

Saxons!

 

Invade! Invade!

Blood and gore and history made.

Invade! Invade!

This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!

 

Spoken: No, not the 8th century!

 

The Saxons ruled til the Viking sails

Rocked up at a monastery hard as nails.

England fell as the Viking hoard

Took land and treasure and thralls as their reward. 

Those armies battled back and forth

While the Scots and Picts squared up in the North.

Canute and Edward came and went.

Then Harold met the Normans and we know what that meant.

Here we go again...

 

Invade! Invade!

Blood and gore and history made.

Invade! Invade!

Romans, Saxons, Vikings, Normans,

This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!

Sharpen your blade!

Optional homework

 

What can you find out about some of the facts in the song? 

 

What did the Romans use elephants for?

What are Saxon ceorls (churls) and thanes?

What were some of the 'funny little Anglo Saxon laws'?

What were the treasures and thralls taken by the Vikings?

Who were Canute, Edward and Harold?

 

We hope you enjoy researching! Please bring in your answers by Tuesday 16th May (or keep the answers in your head ready for our discussion!)

Spectacular Science Week

The children took part in a range of fun science activities in the school hall as part of our science fair. Thank you to our Year 3 helpers! 

Picture 1

Our science topic this term is 'Plants' and we have been busy planting cress in a range of different environments to check the best conditions for growth. 

We removed leaves off a plant to observe the effect it has and also watched bean seeds germinate. 

We dissected a daffodil and used a microscope to look at the reproductive parts of the flower. This helped us to understand a plant's life cycle.

We're waiting for our own individual flower seedlings to grow stronger before taking them home to care for.

Creative Music Day

 

The Year 3 class attended a creative music day at the Guildlhall. They had to compose music  to play along to the story of Little Red Riding Hood. The children took part in workshops playing on many percussion instruments and using their voices.

 

The children created a soundscape for Grandma's house, thinking about what objects could be inside the house and trying to recreate those noises using the instruments. Some of our children even got the opportunity to conduct the whole class! The children also loved trying to create noises to represent the characters within the story: Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf and Grandma. They learnt about dynamics and tempo to create different atmospheres. Year 3 most enjoyed our songwriting workshop. We had to write lyrics to compose a song about Red Riding Hood.

 

We all had a great day and cannot wait to compose music for different stories and characters back at school!

Global Internet Safety Awareness Day

Tuesday 7th February

We had a very enjoyable day celebrating all we can learn and enjoy on the internet, whilst remembering how to stay safe and happy online.

 

It was very exciting watching Mr. Stonebridge collect our award for 'Digital School 2017' in our special assembly.  We loved singing our favourite 'Click click' song to remind everyone of the internet safety rules we follow at school and at home.

Congratulations to our talented Year 3 writers!

The Year 3 children took part in a creative writing competition. They had to write a short, descriptive story about a monster that was exactly 100 words long.

We are extremely proud of Max and Harry who have received certificates for their writing and will have their stories published in a Young Writers' Anthology.

A fabulous achievement!

Dartmoor Ramble

The Year 3 and 4 class had an amazing ramble across Dartmoor today led by National Park guides. We learnt about the journey of a river from the moor to the sea, including the use of man-made leats. These channel water to Burrator Reservoir, where it is stored for later distribution to Plymouth and the surrounding area. 

We have been looking at various habitats in our local environment. It was lovely to see some of the ponies and sheep wandering freely and to observe a variety of plant species present.

Spring Term - 'From the Moor to the Sea'

Welcome back to an exciting Spring Term. We hope that you've all had a fun-filled Christmas and New Year. smiley

This term our topic is geography based and we will be looking at our local environment. We will begin with Dartmoor and follow the path of a river to our local seaside. A superb opportunity to visit the great outdoors and explore Burrator Reservoir and Mount Edgcumbe.

Lots to look forward to!

John enjoyed showing us his Dartmoor book which had been given to his great-grandad by his mum in 1983! Look at Jon's mum's lovely message in the front of the book! We admired the handwriting! 

Congratulations 'Bookworm'!

Congratulations 'Bookworm'! 1

Ten chapter books read over the Christmas holiday! What an achievement! 

Who will be the next 'Superstar reader' to gain a Headteacher's Award? 

 

It is marvellous to see Year 3 pupils selecting books from home, the city library and our class library in addition to their school reading books.  There are so many favourites being read and recorded in reading diaries and children passing books they've enjoyed to each other.  Current popular authors enjoyed by our class are Roald Dahl and David Walliams.  Please let us know if you have a book you'd like to recommend.  Maybe you could write a book review for our webpage!

Gymnastics
 
In Gymnastics this term, our focus is 'Symmetry and Asymmetry'. We are learning how to travel, balance, roll and jump in different ways, working with a partner to perform a sequence which shows moments of symmetry as well as asymmetry.  Have a look at our work in progress and see if you can work out whether there is symmetry or asymmetry in our shapes.  We will perform in our class assembly on Wednesday 1st February.
