On the week leading up to Remembrance we have been looking at shape poems. The children had a chance to write their own shape poem about Remembrance based on four images; a soldier, a single poppy, a field of poppies and a Remembrance wreath. They came up with some brilliant shape poems using expanded noun phrases and similes. Here is the poem 3B wrote as a class:
Brave soldiers go to frightening war. Heartbroken families left behind. Soldiers wounded in battle, lives lost.
Wicked winter fades, luscious spring brings new life. Tiny seeds growing under the lumpy, dirty soil, buds stretching for the scorching sun.
Fields full of poppies as red as soldiers blood from their gushing wounds. Standing straight like a marching soldier. Growing as a sign on peace and hope to help us remember the wars.
We wear our delicate poppies with pride and respect to say thank you to all the amazing, strong soldiers that risked their precious lives for us.
The children's poppies are on display on the classroom windows. Come and have a look and see if you can find your child's poppy.
This week we had a great time visiting the Chef School at Toby Carvery.
Firstly we learnt about the history of Toby Carvery. Did you know they go through enough gravy each year to fill 1 1/2 Olympic size swimming pools!
We also learnt about lots of different fruit and vegetables and some of us even got to blind taste test some different fruits and vegetables. Ranging from cucumber to raspberries. Then it was our turn to get our own back on the teachers with their own blind taste test where Miss Bland had to eat a piece of raw red onion!
After we took part in a alphabet challenge of fruit and vegetables and a quiz. Before tucking into a delicious carvery lunch.
A fantastic time was had by all and a big thank you to Toby Carvery for providing us with the experience.
Last Friday we had a great time celebrating World Languages Day.
Our day started with a trip to the international market in the hall. To get there we had to get our passports and go through passport control that was controlled by a scary police officer (Mrs Short!). Once we had our passports stamped we were free to explore the different countries around the hall. As you can see from the pictures we got to try lots of new, delicious foods and learnt interesting facts about the different countries, that we got to share with the rest of the class when we returned to our classroom.
After break we headed outside to have a go at Bollywood dancing. The instructors were brilliant at showing us some new moves and in the short time we had we learnt a whole routine.
All that dancing helped us to work up an appetite so we headed inside for a fruit and veg tasting session. There were lots of new, exotic and exciting fruit and veg for us learn about and try. When we had worked out what all the fruit and veg were we had a chance to try some. We thoroughly enjoyed trying something new and some of us even found something that we really liked.
Thank you to all the people who ran the stalls, the Bollywood dancing instructors, Tesco for providing the fruit and veg and the Friends for preparing it. But most of all thank you to Madame Betteridge for organising another fantastic World Languages Day for us all to enjoy.
This week in Science we have been learning about the human skeleton and learning the names of some of the bones. We had a great afternoon discovering what is inside our body and even got to cover Miss Bland with post-it notes with the names of the bones on at the end of the lesson!
Computing and ipads have given a great opportunity for us to evaluate and share our work in the creative arts. We have created photo montages of all our artwork so far! Enjoy!!
We have had a busy but tasty day today. We sampled a range of different French foods. We hope you enjoy our photos and video clips.

On a Thursday afternoon each of our classes works for an hour with Miss Hardy doing P.E. and an hour doing art with Mrs Jenkins, it is a great way for the teachers to get to know both classes and for the teachers to share their talents and interests. We have been studying a surrealist artist called Joan Miro! surrealism means that the pictures are beyond real or what we would expect, we studied a picture called Woman in front of the sun then produced our own interpretations using chalks,pastels and collage. We are publishing the work from 3H on the website and challenge you to guess what our titles might be! We hope our work inspires you, maybe you could have a go at producing your own!
Welcome to our Year Three Blog, this is a great opportunity for us to share some of our children's work! We hope you enjoy sharing this because we are very proud of our progress. It is hard work in Year Three and we're always busy but we do our best and are keen to share our achievements. We have focussed on the natural world in our Science, Humanities and R.E. learning about plant development and why we need to protect the natural world.
We have been really inspired by the sacrifice of the soldiers in World War One and have been busy writing poetry to explain the symbolism of the poppy and why it is still important today. We displayed our work through producing PowerPoint slides combining text and images.
