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!
Year 3 have had a wonderful term focusing on the ‘Miraculous journey of Edward Tulane’. We have finished the term off by looking into a missing person report, in which Edward Tulane was our victim. To help the investigators find Edward, we created fact files not only on Edward Tulane but on other specific topics, ranging from great white sharks to Mount Everest! Our outstanding artwork of Edward’s dreams has been held onto for as long as possible, and parents can now see the children’s creativity put to the test. We have thoroughly enjoyed our journey with Edward Tulane and will miss him very much.
We consolidated our learning of measurement in Maths and Art week by measuring our hands and fingers. The children looked out for many shapes within their surroundings and measured perimeters whenever possible! This has been encouraged by our flag pop art project. We have just dipped our toe into the water with fractions, so any encouragement at home would be appreciated.
A superb term of coding has also come to a close, which the children are experts in! Please do try and keep this going at home on computers or tablets! Well done Year 3- an awesome term of learning!
Well what a term it has been in Maple class. We have thoroughly enjoyed our learning with an exceptional attitude. Our English lessons have been filled with an exciting focus on ‘Why do bats sleep in the day?’. A very exciting fable which the children have innovated and written themselves. All of the fables are amazing to read. We have also been writing postcards to Hindu Gods and to our families, describing the similarities and differences between cities and coasts. We have been learning about the correct use of direct speech, similes and metaphors and understanding the positive effect this has on our writing.
In Maths we have concluded our learning of statistics (pictograms, bar chart and tally charts) by completing an assessment as well as a whole class investigation which has been put into a display. We have recorded the favourite day of the week for all the children in Year 3 and 4. We look forward to moving onto perimeter and length next term to build on our mathematical knowledge.
Our Topic lessons have come to an end, we will miss ‘Rocks and Light’. However, we have produced some fantastic work on the dangers and ways protection from the sun, as well as a look at some real life fossils!
A brilliant term in Maple Class, the children should be very proud of themselves!
