Feeling Hot Hot Hot

What beautiful weather we have seen this week! We have been extra careful out in the sun with our sunhats, sun cream and keeping ourselves hydrated. 

We have been exploring capacity this week in Maths; estimating and measuring the capacity of different containers was great fun. In English, we have been researching plastic pollution and how this is damaging our environment, particularly for animals. As part of our travelling through the ages topic we are moving onto Iron Age in the next couple of weeks to see how daily living changed and how they made further advancements.

A 3D Frenzy

 

This week we have been learning about the properties of 3D shapes. The children have had the opportunity to put their learning into practise by creating their own 3D shapes using different modelling materials, ranging from sticks and modelling clay to skipping ropes! Year 3 have enjoyed their lessons and have created some excellent 3D shapes.

 

Skipping to success

Year 3 have been really enjoying their skipping topic in PE this term. We have been practising our different skipping methods, including cross over and boxer style and learning from each other to continue to improve. Here is an example of some SUPER SKIPPING from 3B!

Deaf Awareness

 

Year 3 were fortunate enough to have a visit from a lady and her Hearing Dog for the Deaf this week. The visitor explained the process of training that her dog experienced, how the dog helps her around the house and in public and finally, we got to pet the dog if we wished. 

It is contributing towards our deaf awareness certificate that a lot of us are hoping to achieve by the end of Year 3. 

 

 

Terrific Timezone

Year 3 had a very exciting visit from the company Timezone this week to kick start our Summer topic of Stone Age through to the Iron Age. Although Timezone have visited Wheelers Lane many times, it is the first time Year 3 have got to experience it a topic day with them. 

We were able to make our own piece of felt using wool and we got to see the process of the fibres combining together. Exploring the different artefacts was pretty incredible! Looking at different bones, clothing, how they lived and the weaponry they had too. In the afternoon, we explored the different methods of working in the Iron Age including spindle wheels and using a niddy noddy. Trying on some of the armour that they would have used in the Iron Age was great too (some of us thought it was far too heavy!)
