Here are some videos of the children playing recorders. They have been learning these instruments since the start of the year and are now sounding quite tuneful!

This week we have been experimenting with technology. We recorded verbal feedback for the children's reports on gorillas. The children said they preferred hearing us talk through their writing and it helped them know how what they have done well and how to improve.

We have been making some decorations for the class today. Each pair made the

longest paper chain they could then we joined them altogether to make a monster chain that stretched the length of the junior corridor!

This week we have been developing our typing skills using Dance Mat Typing on the BBC site. The children have made good progress with their typing but we all agreed we need to practise more often.

Some children from Year 3 and 4 went to Henry Court to participate in an athletics tournament. The children performed really well and are looking forward to finding our where they came.

We have used part of the Sports Funding to bring in expert PE coaches to improve the teaching and learning of the subject in our school. Last half term, Dave Hazelgrove worked with Year 3 developing team building skills. This half term, Rob has been providing tennis coaching for the whole year group.

A few parents have recently asked us for copies of multiplication grids so their children can practise their tables at home. I have attached four grid that increase in difficulty. We also have a lot of useful information on the maths pages of our website.

Here we have attached a right and left handed spelling practise sheet should you need a spare.

This we have been learning how to play the recorder. Mrs McKenzie comes in every Thursday afternoon and teaches both the classes. The children seem to really enjoy it and the progress they have made is really noticeable. We are looking forward to sharing our leaning at the 'Listen To Me Concert' for parents.

As part of our work on data in maths, we have been using Excel to create graphs.

In science we have been learning about magnets. We have discovered which materials are magnetic and we were all surprised that some coins are magnetic and some coins are not. The children wanted to investigate if the shape of the magnet altered its strength. In the end, we decided our test was not fair because we changed the size of the magnet as well as the shape.

We have been writing algorithms in Year 3 and testing them using robots. After we had made some mistakes and debugged our algorithms, we managed to get the robot to follow a path successfully.

This is the whole half term's spelling lists in case your child 'looses' them.

Hi everyone,

We have been planning to get the blogs going but it has taken us since September to get going - apologies!

Now it is started we will try and keep regular posts on here with either useful information like the spellings or examples of the learning we have been doing in Year 3.

Many thanks,

Mr Johnson & Mrs Meads

We have been learning about the Russian Painter Wallisy Kandinsky in Year 3.  We have used his painting 'Concentric Circles in Squares' to inspire our art this half term.  We have made our own secondary colours by mixing 2 primary colours, and then we used a primary colour mixed with a secondary colour to make a tertiary colour.

We have also learnt about tints, where you add white to colour and shades where you add black to a colour.  We will be using this to make our own pictures.  We also tried out different media to see which gave us the effect we wanted for our pictures.  We had to evaluate this and say why we like the ones we did.

Here are some pictures of some of our work.

This is the week of Advent. We will be making advent calendars this week and later we will be studying "Christmas Around the World". Keep checking for further updates. Feliz Navidad!
