Year 3 – Class 7
Mrs Irvine and Mrs Woods
In class 7 we enjoy learning in a variety of different ways. We love reading, writing and playing numeracy games. We like to do as much learning outdoors as possible and learning through practical activities.
Today in P.E we practised our skills in passing the baton. Then we put them into practise by having a relay.
This afternoon we worked in partners to play a game. We had to decide if the 's' at the end of the word had been used to show a plural or possession. We were not allowed to see the sentence and could only hear it from our partner.
This afternoon, Class 7 enjoyed discussing the roles of males and females. They thought about jobs that are often gender stereotyped and how chores in their own homes are divided out!
This morning, Class 7 enjoyed designing their own cross breed animals. They thought about their appearance, diet, habitat and threats to their existence. Later in the week, they will use their ideas to write a report about their animal.
Today, Class 7 visited William Turner Garden. Although there were not a great deal of plants yet, the children enjoyed reading the labels and finding interesting facts. In our next ICT lesson we will research what the plants will look like later in the year and will...
Class 7 have really enjoyed designing their own plant pots. Their task was to think about which age group their plant pot was for and make their design reflect this.
As part of our STEM project we have been exploring the story of Rapunzel. Today we performed a Rapunzel Rap. We took different parts and performed the rap to the class using expression and actions.
As part of our STEM project, Year 3 are investigating towers. This afternoon, we used different equipment to try and build a strong tower.
This morning, Class 7 experimented with putting commas in different places within sentences. We found that it can change the meaning of a sentence. We also found some sentences rather tricky to say without a comma!
Today, in Maths we made spider biscuits. We used them to help us learn the 8x table.
