October in Year 3

We have had a great October in Year 3 and the children have been working very hard in all subjects. 

This week we have had a very busy week with a road safety workshop and a trip to Southport Eco Centre. In the road safety workshop we learnt all about how we should behave near a road and the steps we should take to cross the road safely. At Southport Eco Centre, we learnt all about Volcanoes and Earthquakes and completed lots of interactive activities about these topics. We all had a great day and can’t wait to start learning more about Earthquakes and Volcanoes in our Geography lessons.

Robins had fun making pumpkin soup.

The Robins had lots of fun making pumpkin soup. We decided to look at pumpkins because it is Autumn time. We looked at and felt the inside of the pumpkin then talked about how it felt. We then used the flesh to make the soup and talked about what other ingredients we needed to make our soup. When it was ready we tasted it and then took some home.

September in Robins

We have all settled in very well in Robins and had a very busy few weeks. We have been getting to know each other and making lots of new friends. We have enjoyed meeting Fred the class puppet and Everywhere Bear, tried lots of different fruits and vegetables in our PE lessons and learned new songs in our music lessons with Mrs Shirley. We have been learning new sounds in phonics, all about ourselves in topic, concentrating on the numbers 1-3 in maths and learning our school rules.

May in Year 3 

We had a very busy May in Year 3, the children worked extremely hard. In Literacy, we wrote balanced arguments and the children argued whether or not school uniform should be banned. In Maths, we found rigth angles, obtuse angles and acute angles in shapes as well as fining horizontal and vertical lines of symmetry. In Science, our topic was light we discussed a range of different light sources and explained how shadows are formed. 

Superstar Owls!

Year Two have had so much fun recently! They have been to the Lowry in Salford, which was a brilliant day out and they produced some amazing artwork. They also behaved perfectly throughout and loved sharing their knowledge about L S Lowry. The staff at the Lowry were very impressed with the class and told us how fantastic they were! We have lots of budding artists in Owls and they have all created something they were proud of during our recent enrichment week, which was displayed in the hall. You can see some pictures of the artwork in an earlier blog post.

The children are also always working hard at their writing, reading, spelling and maths so we are very proud of them.They are improving all the time. Well done Owls!

Trip to Southport Eco Centre 

Year 3 has a fantastic day at Southport Eco Centre. We took part in a range of activities that linked to our current topic ‘What makes the Earth angry?’ The children learnt lots of new and interesting facts about Volcanoes and Earthquakes and took part in a quiz to see how much they had learnt, everyone did really well and the behaviour and engagement of children was amazing.
