Spring Term 2016 - Ancient Egyptians

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and happy new year. The children should be rested and ready to return to school this week.

We will be starting our Egyptian topic which will see the children learning about many aspects of this ancient civilisation up to Egypt today. There is a trip to the British Museum, London, including a workshop on mummification. 

We will be learning about the Egyptians, running parallel with Classes 4 and 5. To suit the needs of the children in my class I will planning my lessons from a variety of resources. Therefore, below, I have linked to two medium term plans and I have the facility to choose from either plan.

I am excited to be tailoring the curriculum to suit the children and having visited the British Museum before, I know the trip will be fascinating for all involved.

Rewards Day, Wat Tyler Park - 20th July 2017

admin on: Class 3 Blog

This morning there was doubt in Class 3 as to what the weather would be like for our rewards outing to Wat Tyler Park so we set off with sun cream and waterproofs. Classes 2, 3 and 5 had a free morning before their activities in the afternoon. They split themselves in to two groups; Explorers and Players. 

The Explorers went off the explore the park following the Explosives Trail while the Players discovered the joy of an open field and woods to play in. Unfortunately at 11.00 am the heavens opened and we all ran for shelter where the children asked could they eat their lunch. All the adults thought it was a bit early but listened to the rumbling tummies and decided what else could they do when it was raining. At 11.30 am it stopped raining and the children were allowed back outside to play. Some children chose to jump in muddy puddles while other played chase games.

At 12.15pm Classes 2, 3 and 5 started their afternoon activities. Class 3 spent sometime listening to the activity leader while looking at pictures of pond life they might see. It was during this time I was proud to be their teacher as they were able to answer many difficult questions using the correct scientific language. Back out in the open air around Wat Tyler's specially fenced off ponds the children had a go at 'Pond Life' bingo. Soon there were many squeals of joy and shout of 'Look at this' as the Class exploded into life searching and naming the pond life they managed to find.

All too soon the activity had to come to an end as we needed to wash our hands and get back on the coach to return to school.

The children had a great time and I was glad that they were 'my children'. Excellent behaviour and manners. Well done Class 3 and I hope you all have a great summer holidays.

Mini-beast Hunt - July 2017

admin on: Class 3 Blog

The children in Class 3 over the past three weeks have been looking at items that are either living, have been living or never been living and where such animals live. This culminated on Tuesday 12th July with the children participating in a mini-beast hunt locally. They found many many mini-beasts including some that were not on the list.

Well done Class 3

Eva Rothschild

Class 3 practiced their skills in perseverance, resilience and creative thinking when trying to create a sculpture in the style of Eva Rothschild, abstract 3D artist. They soon realised that cubes needed support to stop them collapsing and some where able to overcome this while others adapted their design.

Well done Class 3 it looks like you have created a molecule factory.

Willow weaving

admin on: Class 3 Blog

Part of our arts festival saw all children learning to weave willow to make a variety of 3D sculpture. The children in Class 3 made either a fish or a leaf. As a whole school we created a willow wishing tree which can be seen the the courtyard.

Please see the gallery to see some photographs.
