During Art Week, 3W were inspired by the amazing artist Katsushika Hokusai. Famous for his paintings of waves and views of Mt Fuji, Katsushika loved capturing nature. Thinking about the Sustainable Development goal of Climate Action, we created our piece of art showing the impact of global warming. In parts of the world, fires rage due to more extreme weather patterns. Sea levels are also rising due to the melting polar ice. We remembered that we can all do our bit to help tackle climate change!

We hope you enjoy the pictures of their amazing artworks.

The wave shows the sea levels rising, affecting the whole world. The red sky represents the increasing global temperatures.
The children all made their own versions of the wave picture. Ask your child which one is theirs!

In English, we are learning about the features of play-scripts. To help us get started, we practised using a script. The children focused on using expression to read out the dialogue, and use actions to follow the stage directions. Have a look at their lovely performances!

Today we had our Entry Point into one of the most delicious Year 3 IPC units … Chocolate!

We used our senses to experience dark, milk and white chocolate. The children showed great thoughtfulness (one of our Personal Goals) when they were slowly tasting the chocolates and identifying the flavours they could detect. I think it is safe to say it was one of the favourite lessons so far this year!

What’s your favourite type of chocolate? Have you ever thought about where chocolate comes from? How it is made? How it was invented? In Year 3 we are going to find out all about these great questions and more!

Our current English learning journey is focused on poetry – such a fun and expressive form of writing! There are many features in poetry including, rhyme, rhythm, similes, adjectives, and sometimes even made-up-words!

On Tuesday, we explored how poems use rhyme and rhythm by performing some poetry. Before performing, we tried to clap out the syllables and rhythm of the poem and identify where the rhyming words were so that we could emphasise them. Some of the children added actions to their performances, too.

Hope you enjoy the videos!

On Monday we had a visit from the lovely Nabhi, who comes each year with his wife to to tell the Year 3 children about the Hindu festival of Diwali – the Festival of Lights. He explained the story and history of Diwali and had some of the children act it out with brilliant traditional costumes. (Nabhi was very impressed with their acting skills!) It was a fantastic opportunity to learn about the beliefs of other faiths, and the children will learn more about Hinduism in Spring term.

Enjoy the pictures below.

Year 3 have had a blast learning all about Ancient Egypt this term – one of the earliest civilisations in history! Today we celebrated our learning in our exit point assembly. The children showed off Ancient Egyptian style with their fashion parade. They shared some of the learning that has taken place this term, and performed a special version of the song ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’. We hope you enjoy these pictures and videos of the children’s wonderful performance. Miss Mason and Miss Wilson are so proud of all the Year 3s!

If any families are interested, there is an exhibition currently running at the Saachi gallery in London called ‘Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh’. tutankhamun-london.com

We had a lovely time with Drama Hut yesterday. We met Isis, the Ancient Egyptian goddess of love and healing. She helped us to learn more about the beliefs of the Ancient world. The children made different ‘pictures’ from the past. Can you see where they’ve made the Pyramids? The Nile River? Crocodile hunting? Enjoy the pictures!

Class 3 had a go at using the “Stop Motion” app on the ipads to make an animation for The Hungry Caterpillar.  They did a great job considering it was their first time.  It was tricky to hold the ipad still while taking so many pictures and hard to know how many pictures to take to create a smooth animation.

This work concluded Class 3’s Spanish topic about fruit and the days of the week.  Enjoy listening to our Spanish and watching our animations…
