We had a great day on Stone Age Day. There were some amazing costumes and projects and we had fun making Stone Age jewellery and pottery. We also had a go at cave painting under our tables! We spent time sorting different types of rocks and learned a lot about Neolithic settlements.
Today is Safer Internet Day and we have been learning all about keeping safe on line. We have also found out lots about how technology has changed over time. We couldn’t believe that mobile phones did not exist when Mrs Lowe was a little girl! As part of our work we have made posters to remind…
We have really enjoyed Wealth and Work Week. We have learnt all about where money comes from, what we use it for and what loans and interest are. On Wednesday we had visitors in school who told us all about their jobs. We asked lots of questions.
We had a visiting teacher come to school today to do a yoga lesson with us. We really enjoyed it, especially the relaxation exercises.
Year 3 have been experimenting with watercolour paints. We have tried making details with less water and washes for backgrounds using more water.
Tanzii TV came to school today. Because we had been the most active class during the Autumn term, we got to film a special workout that will go on the Tanzii TV site. It was great fun and very exciting. We also got a special certificate for our classroom.
Today we visited Lancaster Castle as part of our topic on local history and geography. We went on a tour and found out about how the castle has changed use over time. We were amazed that some parts of the castle are over 800 years old. We had a great morning, despite the rain!
We have really enjoyed finding lots of descriptive vocabulary to write weather poems.
As part of our work on internet safety, Year Three have been looking at websites to decide how reliable they are. We have had a go at creating our own spoof websites.
Year 3 have been learning about the artist LS Lowry. Today we have started to work on our own pictures in the style of Lowry. We have used the photographs we took on our local area walk as our inspiration. Even Mrs Lowe had a go! Watch this space for our finished pictures.
Year 3 had a great time this afternoon learning how to build shelters and use flints to light fires. Greg, who ran the workshop was particularly impressed by the classes teamwork and imagination.
