Class 3             

Welcome to Class 3's class page. We hope you enjoy looking at some of the things we do in school. This page has been created using contributions from our class and teachers.

Our Wedding 26th October 2018

We researched how Christian weddings were held, then we wrote our own service. Each class 3 child took a role from vicar to bride and groom. Although it was only a pretend wedding it felt very real! We even had a little reception. Everyone had a great day! 

 

Dig it Day Autumn 2018

Dig it Day was loads of fun! After a lovely summer, we had lots of vegetables to harvest. In Class 3, we used carrots to make carrot cake for the whole school. Together we measured, weighed and scaled the recipe so that there was enough for every child in the school to have their own carrot cake! The results were delicious! 

Our Class Rules

We really enjoyed working together as a team to create our class rules.

Here is our topic overview.

This term (September 2018), we will be looking at life, love and loss. We will start by considering the rules associated with our lives, which will include our own class rules and the rules of different religions. After that, we will look at the journey of life where we will think about key milestones in our life. We are looking forward to planning and preparing our own wedding! In the second half of the term, we will be finding out about World War One. Already we are enjoying reading our class book: 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo. As a class, we will prepare and lead a remembrance assembly to remember those lost in wars. We also hope to visit the Manor Residential Home to share our service of remembrance with the residents.   

 

Life, Love and Loss

 

Autumn Term 2018

Friday 22nd June 2018

Yesterday was such a fantastic end to our wonderful trip. We had so much fun crate stacking, whilst learning to be supportive team members. Some of our expressions as we teetered on top of the stack were priceless! Some also managed to fit in a spot of orienteering around the grounds too. 

Our trip ended with a walk to Little Langdale Quarries, which tied in beautifully with our mountain topic. Walking in such a spectacular setting to see the volcanic rock formations made millions of years ago, was truly awesome. We were so lucky to go on such a beautiful day - as a result we have some spectacular photographs to share.

Our day ended with a game of rounders...and then one final hot chocolate!

We are 16 happy and safe children with 3 contented (albeit tired!) members of staff. Whilst we are looking forward to returning to our families, we are sad to leave. During the week we have made lots of memories and lived life well!

The cases are packed, the laundry bags have been sealed, prime your washing machines...we are on our way home!

Thursday

Yesterday was a fun packed day with lots of children pushing themselves out of their comfort zone and showing a lot of courage. Quite a few children managed to get to the top of the tree and ring the bell. Many showed great courage by believing in themselves as they started the abseil descent. Most importantly, everyone had a go and had fun! Overall, the ghyll scramble proved to be the most popular with lots of smiling faces as we bobbed and scrambled! As a consequence, appetites were good, sleeping was easily secured and memory banks are bursting! 

We are all looking forward to our last day. The sun is up, the sky is blue,and today is the day when we WILL break our lunch making record time.

We have all slept...some more than others! Looking forward to the day ahead.

Kepplewray

We have arrived! All safe. Journey great. We arrived at 3 pm. All children have successfully made their beds and are now exploring the house. Our evening meal is at 6pm, so we are all looking forward to that.

 

Tour de Yorkshire

We went to the Manor Residential Home to make flags for the Tour de Yorkshire. We really enjoyed making the flags with the residents.

 

Antarctic Poetry

Inspired by the Antarctic, we have been writing our own Antarctic based poetry. We have tried to use a range of figurative language to capture the essence of Antarctica. After lots of thought, drafting and redrafting we have created some poems of which we very proud. Here they are displayed on our wall.

 

Forces, Faith and Frost

This term our topic is called: ‘Forces, Faith and Frost’. 

 

Christmas Activities

Christmas is a really busy time in our school. You can see lots of our activities in the gallery section of this website. Just before Christmas, we used our understanding of light (gained from our Science lessons) to create some calendars for our families. We enjoyed making them – we hope you like them too.

 

Cooking Club

Cooking club has proved a huge success - we have all enjoyed the opportunity to cook some delicious dishes. Here are some of our Christmas treats. They were scrumptious!

 

Hinduism

As a class, we learnt a lot more about Hinduism from a member of the Hindu community. We learnt lots about the religion and also got to try on some traditional Hindu clothing. 

 

Rama and Sita Shadow Puppets

As part of Design Technology, we designed our own shadow puppets. We learnt how to create a mechanism so that their arms could move. In science, we learnt about light and used this knowledge to create shadows. In addition, we enhanced our designs by placing small holes in our puppets to allow light through. Initially we created prototypes which allowed us to refine and modify our ideas. When we had finished our puppets, we created our own shadow puppet shows based on the story of Rama and Sita.

 

The Weather Forecast...in French

In French, we learnt about the weather. We learnt how to say the weather in French and even had a go at doing our own weather forecast using our French. It was great fun!

 

Textile Shells

Using inspiration from our topic, we used our textile skills to create our own shells. Initially we found the sewing a little tricky but we got it in the end.

 

Fish Poems

We had a lot of fun creating our own fish based poems. Some of us even managed to write them in the shape of a fish. We hope you like them.

Arctic Corsair

During the last half term, we have been looking at the local history of Hull, concentrating on the fishing industry. As part of our topic, we have visited the Arctic Corsair, which is a local trawler moored on the River Hull. Here are some of us on the bridge of the trawler. We had a lot of fun and asked a lot of questions! It inspired us to create our own memento of our visit. In addition, as part of our cross curricular writing, we wrote thank you letters to the tour guides of the Arctic Corsair.

Dig-it Day

As part of Dig-it Day, we did a maths investigation involving lots of measuring and perimeter work. Here are Class 2 and 3 working together to measure the perimeters of the vegetable beds, so that new wood can be ordered. In addition, we used our measuring and problem solving skills to work out how to make a lavender bag with a 40cm perimeter. Of course we used our own lavender which we had harvested from our gardens. We are very proud of our work and the way in which we helped each other.

 

Our Class Rules
As part of a new class, we looked at our class rules. Together we came up with some rules, which we could all agree on. as you can see, we have used our fish theme to create a display.

 

Fish, Flames and Festivals
This term, our topic is called: 'Fish, Flames and Festivals'. Have a look at our topic overview to see what we have planned.
