Year 3

  Welcome to Year 3  

Anglo - Saxon shelter building and weaving

The children have had great fun designing and making their Anglo-Saxon shelters. They have used cutting and joining techniques, painting, clay modelling and much more. 

During Anglo-Saxon times they would have used looms to weave fabric and clothing. The children have started their very own weaving too! 

A huge 'THANK YOU' to all of the parents and grandparents that have assisted the children with their activities this week. Your support is greatly appreciated. smiley

Tuesday 12th November

Today we celebrated our differences by wearing odd socks! We took part in an anti-bullying lesson and thought carefully about how we can include everyone and spread even more happiness around St. Andrew's!  We all thought of a pledge that could help.  We think that if everyone makes a small change, friendships could grow even stronger and we could make more people smile.

Here are some of Year 3 sharing their amazing pledges.  We thought of ideas such as giving compliments, asking how people are, inviting others to join in or sit with us, cheering people up or just being polite and lending a helping hand whenever we can. How lucky we are to be part of the St. Andrew's family!

The children were involved with a fantastic workshop of activities to assist the Mayflower celebrations. We were very fortunate to have illustration and publishing students from the Plymouth University to deliver the activities. The children have created leaf prints, sketches of buildings and shelters, Autumn trees and creative writing about the Mayflower. These will be sent to the Plymouth Council where the best examples will be chosen to feature in an anthology. Fingers crossed we will see some of our work published. 

Thank you to all the students involved, the children had a thoroughly enjoyable morning! smiley

Wildwood Escot

The Year 3 and 4 classes had an amazing adventure at Wildwood Escot on 3rd October. We learnt all about aspects of life during Anglo-Saxon times. We baked bread, did carpentry, metal work, discovered how they built shelters, foraged for food in the woods, visited various animals and so much more. Some of us even managed the 'drop slide challenge!'

In RE, had so much fun acting out the story of Adam and Eve.  

Can you match the characters to the actors?

Adam, Eve, the snake and the Tree of Knowledge.

We wrote newspaper reports for the Eden News and captured the events brilliantly.

We love to give out awards!  We have a reigning class champion for the highest number of Mathletics points in one week.  The current record is over 3,000 points! Wow, well done, Kyle.  

Practising skills on Mathletics can make a huge difference to speed, confidence and accuracy in Maths. 1,000 points in one week will earn you a certificate.  

 

Our Spelling Bee trophy is taken home each week by someone who has made excellent progress in spelling or has met their target several weeks running.  Please make sure you know all of your spellings and bring your folder ready for Monday morning.  There have been so many spelling achievers to choose from, but so far, Ralphie, Rosie and Owen have been awarded the trophy for outstanding results.  A huge round of applause!

Year 3 are really developing their independence in computing.  As well as enjoying a short slot for some Mathletics practise each week, we have learned how to access Google Classroom so that we can complete tasks for teachers to see, taken part in activities to help us remember to keep safe online and begun our Coding journey.

 

Remember, you can access Google Classroom at home, but you will need to sign in to your Google account with your staps e mail. (e.g. Your initials: o.p@staps.org.uk) Then type in your password.  You can follow the link below.  

Click on 'add account' if you are working on a device you haven't added your account on yet.   You can then sign in.  Once you are welcomed into your google account, you can click on the square of nine dots at the top right hand side. Google classroom will show as one of the available Apps. Click. You will then see our 'Classroom' Year 3 2019 LDLM.  Click on this.  You can then click on 'Classwork' to look at any assignments set. 

The music for our Harvest song is on there for you to sing along to.  You can also access Code.org by following the link.  We are working on course C.   

Let Mrs Dean know if you have managed this at home by leaving a message on Classroom.  She will be very pleased and will award you a merit!

Gymnastics

We are learning all the 'ingredients' for a super gymnastics sequence.  So far, we have perfected the tricky travelling tasks.  Can you remember all of them and show someone else how to perform them properly?

Crab Walk, Monkey Walk, Bunny Hop, Caterpillar Walk and Hummingbird.

We can also balance on points and patches.  Some of them really need us to stretch our bodies.  Some of our favourites are: Straddle Sit, Piked Sit, V Sit, Crab shape, Arabesque and bridge.

 

We are beginning to put these into sequences with the five basic jumps.
Next we will be moving onto rolling.

As part of our learning in RE, we realised that some tasks are much easier to do with instructions or rules to follow.  Finding the sink was a tricky process when wearing a blindfold, but with a friend to give instructions, it was achievable.

Maths is fun!

 

Do you have a pack of cards at home? Use three cards to make a number.  What are the highest and lowest numbers you can make?

Try making six different numbers and write them down.  Put them in ascending order (lowest to highest) and then descending order (highest to lowest).

The children completed some fantastic homework over the Summer Holiday.  We have really enjoyed listening to the children share all their news and adventures.  Do come and see the children's posters and scrapbooks which are on the display in the corridor outside the hall.

Our creative curriculum topic for this term is

'People on the Move'.  We are looking forward to our learning journey together, finding out about the Anglo-Saxons and Scots.

 

We have been having a lovely time getting to know the new class.  It has been wonderful to hear about everyone's holiday adventures.  A huge 'well done' to everyone who has completed scrapbooks and posters about their families and holidays.  They really are super!

 

Our curriculum letter and poster contains important information about class routines, homework etc. You can view them below.
