Maple class have had a wonderful term of learning. We have followed the story of Jack and the Beanstalk: writing innovated tales and our own adventure stories in search of a ‘Magic Ring’. We have written some amazing Haikus on the topic of Christmas and even written instructions on how to put on a Nativity. Maple learners have breezed through their addition and subtraction focus and are now getting stuck into multiplication and division. All members of Year 3 have had fantastic attitude towards all areas of learning in Maths. Our topic of the UK has seen us learning some basic map skills and directional instructions from our topic book ‘At the Beach’ by Roland Harvey. We have written fact files on UK mountains and written poetry by using the language associated with the coast. We have had some excellent trips, a sound workshop preparing us for the Year 4 focus next year and ‘The Christmas Experience’, which was a lovely insight into the story of Jesus Christ and why it is important to Christians. Well done Maple class, wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Maple class have completed their final term with outstanding effort and attitude. We have been writing persuasive letters to Mr Kirke asking him to join his class in Year 4. The children have described all the qualities they have and explained what they are looking forward to. In Maths we have been enjoying some dice games which the children can easily play at home! Sports day was a huge success with everyone demonstrating their athletic attributes. We thoroughly enjoyed our splendid trip to Cheddar Gorge and Caves, in which we learnt a tremendous amount on the Stone Age and the beauty of the caves. We were lucky to experience a visit from the Mounted section of Avon and Somerset police, the children watched a demonstration of Jack being handcuffed (voluntarily), and even trained Rolo for loud crowd noises. Our forest school trip at Clifton College sports ground was a great success. All the children completed the cross country course twice! We also learnt how to build a campfire and cooked marshmallows as a delicious treat. A huge congratulations to everyone in Maple class this year, we have had some amazing experiences!
Maple Class have had an excellent term of learning. Our experiences have been spectacular. We have had trips to the library and Bristol Zoo which were very educational and exhilerating!
The children have written persuasive speeches during ‘Roman Week’ as Queen Boudicca. We have some leaders emerging in our class with such motivating speeches!
We also created their own dice game to play against Willow Class. This was a great experience to understand rules and explainging their ideas in detail. Our science topic has come to an end with the children demonstrating a brilliant understanding of the skeletal system, as well as the functions of plants.
We look forward to term 6, well done Year 3 you have done yourselves proud!
