    DT - Construction

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Year 3 visited the local Science and Technology college to spend the morning immersed in construction. We had to construct a working drawbridge using a range of levers, cogs and pulleys. It was a brilliant challenging morning and it was great to see everyone throw themselves into STEM activities. Congratulations to Roxie, Tosia, Bethany and Elodie for being the first team to complete the challenge.

    Spanish - Salsa

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    When the Spanish invaded South America they took with them some of their traditions. This dance is now commonly associated with Latin America. We celebrated our termly Spanish focus with a look at some of the moves. We then tried to put these moves to a traditional Salsa rhythm. It was fast and it was furious and we were exhausted pretty quickly.

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Cuthwolf paid us a visit today. He has been helping us learn all about life in Anglo-Saxon Britain. He told us all about the jobs that children would have to undertake. We all had a go at weaving, peeling root vegetables and making our own porridge.

    Computing - Blog contribution

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We took it in turns to use digital equipment to take a picture of something that we love in our school. These pictures ranged from a picture of our bus, our work and even Tommy holding Jigsaw Jino. We love the finished montage and even wrote these words that you are reading now.

    Computing - Branching databases

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We are continuing to build our knowledge of databases. We've discussed they are called branching because each time a question is asked there can be only two answers. Today, we have looked at how to edit and adapt our databases to ensure the final questions produces a clear result.

    Spanish - Body parts

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Using the story of Little Red Riding Hood, we have been looking at parts of the body. This lesson involved lots of interactive games where children had to match the Spanish word to the picture onscreen. We then finished with a version of Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes or Cabeza, Hombros, Rodillas y Pies!

    Science - Artful Flowers

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    As part of our unit on exploring the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, year 3 got their pencils and paintbrushes at the ready. We observed a range of different flowers closely using magnifiers and recorded our observations using pencils and watercolours. We looked at the work of artist Georgia O’Keeffe as a starting point.
