Year 3 - cooking a fruity Stone Age pudding. , by Miss Jones

Date: 5th Oct 2018 @ 1:44pm

This week, we cooked like a Stone Age person and made delicious stewed fruit using ingrediants we predicted they would have used in the Stone Age. We wrote up the recipe and a set of instructions using imperative verbs and adverbs for when and how. We even worked out the total cost for the recipe. 

We talked about how they might have foraged and gathered fruits like plums and blackberries and nuts and seeds. To make our pudding sweet, we used honey becuse there was no sugar in the Stone Age.

If you would like to make it at home, I have uploaded the recipe.

Year 3 - Roald Dahl Day 🐊🦒🍫, by Miss Jones

Date: 15th Sep 2018 @ 7:28am

We had a great time celebrating Roald Dahl Day on Thursday 13th September. In English, we practised skim reading; reading to find key bits of information within a text and made notes all about Roald Dahl’s life. We then turned our notes into full sentences to add to our biography poster all about our Author of the Month, Roald Dahl. 

We also enjoyed practising representing 3-digit numbers in different ways. We used  the number of pages in some of Roald Dahl’s most Famous books as our starting number.

The children also really enjoyed discovering their Roald Dahl name. This is displayed on our window. I wonder what your Roald Dahl name would be? Why not have a look the next time you are outside our classroom. 

Year 3 - Art and Design , by Miss Jones

Date: 15th Sep 2018 @ 7:17am

This week, the children have been investigating cave paintings. We used the iPads to research facts about Stone Age cave art and to get a closer look at some paintings. They also used a range of different art media to sketch on different papers, specifically experimenting with tone and texture. Next, as a class we looked at how we could design our own cave art inspired line drawing to make a tile for press printing. The children worked very hard creating their own unique design for their printing. We used ink and the repeated printing techniques to create new covers for our topic books. The final results were wonderful!

Date: 11th Sep 2018 @ 10:49am

What a busy week we have had!

Mrs Woodward, Mrs Woodington and Miss Jones are very impressed with how quickly the children have settled into Year 3. The children also brought in at least one special item of their’s and talked about so that Miss Jones could get to know them. We enjoyed getting to know Miss Jones during a quiz and when she shared her all about me bag. We even saw a photo of her when she was in Year 3!

We also talked about our School Values at Oldfield and made a class display for CARE - Can your child tell you what each letter strands for. We learnt the new School Rules and made a sign for our door. Every child signed each rule with their finger print too. 

On Friday, the children enjoyed a Golden Time afternoon with Mrs Bailey and tried out their new activities rota. Can you remember what activities we have this term?

The chlidren earn Golden Time each week if they manage to keep all of their NOISE letters. 

I wonder what we will do next week?
