Class 3O have been learning all about Shakespeare's The Tempest. In English, we wrote a descriptive piece about the terrible storm at the start of the play. This gave us the opportunity to use the impressive vocabulary we know as well as the sentence types. We have also studied the characters' personalities and what effect they have on the story line.
In art, we used collage materials to create pictures of our favourite character Caliban.
As a year group, we spent time in the Prayer Garden thinking about the last days of Jesus.
We heard a Bible reading about when Jesus shared his last meal with his best friends. Just like Him, we broke bread and shared it with our friends.
Today we have been celebrating the 80th Birthday of our school, St Mary's. Because of this we've ventured into our history here in the UK and have studied different eras. Year 3 looked at the 1960s and discovered the great things that happened in this decade, from the first man venturing into space, to England winning the 1966 World Cup!
We created our own pieces of Pop Art in the style of Lichtenstein and Warhol, designed outfits from the 1960's and even made our own trifles after researching party food from this time. We also listened to the 60's music and performed our own version of 'She Loves You' by The Beatles.
We've had so much fun!
In year three we have been learning about the Rainforest and the animals that live within it. We thought it would be an excellent idea to ask the animal man to come and visit the children. They thoroughly enjoyed it! They learnt lots of amazing facts about each and every animal as well as getting the chance to handle and stroke them.
Here are some of the comments the children made,
" My favourite animal was the Pacman frog, I loved the colours of its eyes"
"This has been the best day ever!"
"I am so glad I held a snake as now I'm not scared of them!"
We will shortly upload some videos to show you their amazing French speaking skills......
In year 3 the children get to have the experience of learning another language, French. We had our first lesson today and we learnt how to greet each other in French. The children really enjoyed practising their French! Why don't you ask them to show you at home?
