Welcome to Class 3!
We love reading in Class 3, whether that be independently or our class novels.
Take a look at our reading area!
We enjoy recommending books we have read to our classmates.
This is one of our door displays, based on the book, The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.
Miss Harris chooses star readers to read one of the 'Famous Five' books.
In English, we spend a lot of time working on character inference.
We have been filling the window with character traits of the characters in Lightning Mary as we progressed through the book.
We create working walls in all subjects during lessons. Here's a small selection...
Here is an example of an English working wall.
We gather vocabulary to use in our writing around the classroom.
Furthermore, we write grammar rules to help us.
Here is a maths working wall on Place Value.
We use concrete resources, such as Place Value Counters, to help us out.
Here is a history working wall.
For our topic enquiry, we have been answering the question 'How does Whin Sill impact on human features in the North East?' As part of this enquiry, we visited Whin Sill.
We battled the cold weather to sketch Whin Sill from 3 angles.
This year, we are learning to play the trumpet with Mr. Valence. How exciting!
Design and Technology
In the Autumn, we created posters using levers and linkages. The posters were encouraging the public to visit Lyme Regis, (where the subject of our class novel, Mary Anning, was from).
First, we practised the skill of making various linkages.
Then we designed some potential posters, thinking about which linkages would be effective.
Following market research, we made our posters using recycled materials.
We love computing in Class 3. This year, we have even had the opportunity to use Ozobots!
Here is one working wall about Online Safety, linked to the themes in the book, The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse.
We have been programming Ozobots this term!
Take a look at our incredible artwork!
Have a look at our work on Fantasy Art. We used lots of watercolour techniques!
This is our paint and sketch work, building up to our final pieces drawing David Attenborough.
We took inspiration from Archimboldo and Lowrey for the final pieces, using the skills we had learnt.
