In Class 3 we have Years 5 and 6. The teacher is Mrs Ascot and the LSA is Mrs Bisby. We welcome Mrs Rook into Class 3 on Friday afternoon as our PPA cover teacher.
We hope the children enjoy their time in Class 3 and are ready to take on the challenge of being in Year 5 and 6. They have lots of exciting learning ahead of them!
As Scientists we have been learning about the 5 kingdoms of living things. We focused in detail on the kingdom of Fungi. The children looked in detail at some mushrooms and learnt how they reproduce with spores.
As athletes the children have been spending time developing their agility with the use of equipment. Mrs Rook taught a great lesson based on bowling which really encouraged hand eye co-ordination as well as team work.
As artists Class 3 visited the galleries of local artists who live in Mary Tavy. The children thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to see real artists at work. The children asked very interesting questions and were they inspired by the amazing art work on show. They then had the opportunity to put their own art skills into action in an art session where they developed their observation skills.
As Scientists this week we have been learning about classification keys. We learnt why scientist use them. We also learnt about the 5 kingdoms which all living things are sorted into.
We had a go at using our own criteria drawing on our previous knowledge of living things to create some of our own classification keys. We are very proud of them.
As part of Roald Dahl day 2021 we explored part of the book James And The Giant Peach.
For those of you who are familiar with the book the is part of the story where the giant peach is lifted high up into the air and flown by a flock of seaguls.
As engineers Class 3 were given the challenge of making their "peaches" ( hard boiled eggs) fly.
.All the children worked collaboratively as part of a team to design some ingenious "peach" flying contraptions.
Cricket at the field. It is so lovely to be able to use this fantastic space. We are so lucky.
The children worked hard on improving their bowling accuracy. We have some budding cricketers in Class 3!
As authors we have studied the picture book The Journey by Francesca Sanna. The book follows a family who become refugees. We spent time discussing how this would affect the children and the mother in the family.
We then wrote our own narratives entitled "The Journey" inspired by the book.
We will share some of the finished stories when they are complete.
As mathematicians we have been learning about area, perimeter and volume.
We have had fun exploring areas of different shapes. We also found out how to find the area of a parallelogram .
As athletes Class 3 have been improving on their cricket skills, with Jonny from Chance to shine. As ever the great British weather didn’t play ball today but we still had a great session. Let’s hope next week we can play at the field.
Class 3 spent time this afternoon completing their own one hundred challenge for the #CaptainTom100 challenge.
They have thought about a one hundred challenge they would like to do over the weekend.
Class 3 started the afternoon with a P.E lesson where the children had to work hard as ateam to cross the "river". There was lots of team work and great problem solving skills to be seen.
We then moved over to look at the beautiful daffodils and spent time drawing them and thinking about they were such a positive symbol.
We also made quizzes to help us with our learning of grammar.
