Last Friday we brought mechanical toys into school to look at and share. We explored them, drew them, wrote about them and even advertised them. Mrs Altoft took some toys apart so we could see how they were made – she has now set us the challenge of putting the robot back together!
We have only been back 2 weeks and our classroom is already buzzing with inventions!! Have a look at our latest displays….
We had great fun today in our circus skills session with Mr Dan. We juggled, balanced, spun and worked so well as a team. Afterwards we produced some fab work back in the classroom, working on posters to advertise, writing about the session and using a song from the Greatest Showman to improve our comprehension skills – a fab morning class 3. Very proud of you all!
We have made a flying start to our Inventions theme. We have already thought about what we want to find out and today we were set the challenge of creating an invention. Here is the problem we were set and some photos of our design process and rigorous testing procedures…
Today we were set a final challenge in our fraction work. We have worked so hard over the last few weeks and I think it is safe to say we are fraction experts!
Follow the link below to see what we have been doing today…
Class 3 had a fab time during Words Week
We spent time thinking about jobs linked to Words, we met and drew with an illustrator/author, we used the book Journey to create a fab retelling of the story – through text messages!!
We had lots of fun!
We even sent our work to the author and he replied!!
We had great fun last week finding out about all things Science and Engineering! We investigated light, built bridges and heard about some very interesting jobs linked to the two areas.
Thanks to the ‘dads’ that came to talk to us, we were very impressed!
As you can see our classroom is coming together nicely….thanks to everyone who has brought in things for our displays.
Since we came back after Christmas we have been working hard on multiplication and division. We are working on building up our times tables knowledge – please keep working on your given times table and previously learnt ones. I have set some 2do’s on purple mash to help you.
In English for the past two weeks, we have been looking at story called Egyptian Cinderella. We have had great fun completing activities linked to predicting, writing, describing, drawing and freeze framing…and we haven’t even read the ending yet! Super work class 3. .
