Miss Stein's Year 3 Class
Welcome to our class page. We hope you enjoy seeing some of the wonderful things that the Year 3 children have been doing this term. Miss Stein
We wowed everyone with our snow themed songs, facts and poetry.
Our Ancient Egyptian Topic
Our Curriculum event was extremely popular! The classroom was full of parents and grandparents. The children sang a gruesome song about how to make a mummy and then became the teachers as they showed their guests how to create their own Cartouche. A great way to end our Ancient Egyptian topic.
I hope you are impressed with our Egyptian collars. Having learned about Tutankhamun's most famous death mask, the children created their own collars. Choice of colours, repeated patterns and fine motor skills are all skills that the children used to create these wonderful collars. Oh and a little bit of mindfulness!
Here are a few of our clay amulets. Scarab beetles and the Eye of Horus were popular choices.
Year 3 have been learning about the Bible and how it is used. They created Wordles in their groups using their own choice of words, which they felt described what the Bible means to Christians. They had to order their words from most important to least important by working together, making decisions and sometimes compromises!
Not only were we learning how to work with someone in order to create our Robots - as part of our school PSHE theme on Relationships but we were also having a lot of fun! A great way to start our next literacy topic based upon The Iron Man.
World Book Day
Can you guess which characters we are? The answers are in the clues, the costumes or... the book itself! We had great fun.
Science week in year 3
During an exciting week, we investigated magnets; made our hair stand on end and picked up paper without touching it and solved a burglary using forensic evidence! We discovered a few budding scientists and detectives, too.
OUR poetry day
We had a wonderful day writing poems with Andy and drawing illustrations with Martin. The children shared their poems with each other and with year 4. Both Andy and Martin were impressed by their imagination and enthusiasm. Excellent!
Our fantastic parent event
Our fantastic parent event in April revealed quite a few artists among our pupils and parents!
Our new exercise equipment!
Our Visit to the Hoards Exhibition at Buxton Museum
We had a brilliant time. Buxton Museum was only one of a few around the country to hold this exhibition and we were so lucky to be invited to see it. The children even discovered their own hoards using metal detectors and then created their own exhibition.
Hands Across the World - Our Christian Aid Fund-Raising Event with tea and cakes in the hall!
Thank you to everyone who attended our afternoon tea for Christian Aid. Your donations will go a long way to helping children around the world have the education that they really want but are unable to have due to poverty. All the Year 3 children created flyers to advertise the event while some brave year 3 volunteers circulated around the hall explaining what it was all about and where the donations would be going. The theme was Hands Across the World and raised £80.
The Year 3 Summer Sale - raising money to buy a bird feeding station for the school.
Using their art work ideas and skills from Year 3 topics, the children have created bookmarks, fridge magnets, notelets and ornaments to sell. They created flyers to persuade people to buy them and now we hope to raise enough money to buy a bird feeding station for the school. I think you must agree that they have produced some beautiful pieces and all for a good cause!
Our Fantastic Summer Sale
Thank you to all the parents and children in Year 3, who bought our art work. The sale was a huge success. We were aiming for around £40 to buy the school a bird -feeding station and actually raised a staggering £90.50!
We began the year learning about healthy eating and finished it by harvesting the potatoes that we planted and broad beans that Mr Neequaye's group sowed. It was a bumper harvest! Now the children will be able to enjoy potato wedges straight from our veg plot.
Year 3 had a fantastic trip to Tunstead Quarry. We donned all the protective gear and set off on an adventure that included giant trucks and explosions!
Guess which countries we are pointing to on our globes and marvel at our Crazy Continents art work!
A sunny visit to Pavilion Gardens in preparation for our Geography Topic - Photographing OS symbols in order to locate the places on maps at school; checking out what the Gardens have to offer the visitor in preparation for writing an information leaflet.... Oh and having fun with friends!
