Year 3

To finish off our Project Based Learning topic Year 3 visited Warwick Castle.

A lovely day was had by all.

We had a tour around the castle and saw lots of artefacts, we watched the Falcon bird display, which was amazing and walked through the maze - luckily nobody got lost. The time tunnel was one of our favourite things during the day. The walk to the top of the castle was soooo tiring we all fell asleep on the coach.

Last week year 3 were very fortunate to spend the day with the artist Neil Wood who is a lecturer at Staffordshire University. He worked with groups of children throughout the day, sharing with then his own creations . The children were able to make their own individual tile linked to India. They used different objects to create the patterns into the clay. They had to press, mould and cast.

Neil has created lots of local artwork - the boxer Thomas Hickinbottom is in display in Mill Street Brierley Hill.

To celebrate World Book Day year 3 looked at books by the famous author Roald Dahl.

Did you know he used to be a spy and was in the RAF before he became an author?

We looked at the different stories he had written and wrote a book review of our favourite story. 

We designed our own golden tickets and spent some time in the school library sharing books with our friends .

 

The children all enjoyed dressing up as their favourite character which was lovely to see .

What a fantastic start to our new topic. Year 3 have been learning about castles and looking at castles local to us. The children have really enjoyed it so far especially looking at the features and what they were used for .

In Year 3 this week we have been writing in Role as Roger, a character from our book.

As part of our writing we drew and annotated a story map using descriptive language and used a thesaurus to help us to extend our vocabulary.  Some of the language that was generated was 

'Roger went to sleep in the messy, disorganised bedroom', 'Joan gave Roger some fresh, cold, creamy milk'. Well done to all of the children as you have worked really hard this week.

Our new book this half term is called 'I Was a Rat or the Scarlet Slipper' by Philip Pullman. 

The book is about an ordinary little boy called Roger who thinks he is a rat. Today we have been hot seating and using our inference skills to find clues about the characters we have met so far! In our Kagan teams we read a piece of text and highlighted evidence to suggest that Roger was a Rat. We then had a hot seating session where we each had a turn to become a character and ask each other questions.

In year 3 we have been learning about signs and symbols. We have learnt that the dove is a sign of peace, the anchor is a sign of hope and the cross is a sign of the crucifixion.

We had a walk around school and saw lots of different signs and symbols and as a class we discussed what they meant.
