Writing Haikus

We enjoyed writing some haiku poems in our English lesson today…
White glistening snow

Snow on the ground like glitter 

Hard crunchy white snow. 

By Asonat, Tyreece and Ethan 

…………………………………………………………

Soft magical snow

Falling in the fresh breeze

Like feathers falling.

By Annie and Davina

………………………………………………………….
Frozen slippy ice 

Making people fall over

Hiding in the cracks.

By Edward and Rewan 

Our visit to the synagogue!

As part of our RE topic learning about Judaism, Year 3 visited the synagogue on Shadwell Lane this week. The children enjoyed visiting this place of worship and seeing the features we have been learning about. We were all amazed at the size of the Torah scrolls! The children all behaved exceptionally and this was acknowledged by the volunteers who led the workshop. Well done, Year 3!

Working in the art studio 

Thank you to those of you who came to our celebration this afternoon. It was lovely to see so many of you. As many of you saw, the children have been working very hard and have thoroughly enjoyed the time they have spent working in the art studio with Mrs Johnston. 

Here is a snapshot of some of the things we have been doing this week…

Building Dens!

We had lots of fun yesterday building dens! 

Our challenge was to build a waterproof shelter for Stig. By the end of our session we had some impressive dens which were big enough for us to sit inside. Today we wrote a set of instructions for building a den.

Thursday 5th September

On Tuesday we enjoyed our last session with Pavla. The session focused on hunter gatherers and how people hunted for food during the Stone Age. After acting out each stage of this, we recorded the process using pictures with charcoal.

Here is our class art work showing the different parts of the hunt.

What another busy week we’ve had in 3ES!

We have continued our work on Stig of the Dump in English and our activities this week have been based on our session with Pavla on Tuesday. The children enjoyed creating some freeze frames for the two main characters; Barney and Stig. We then worked as a whole class to write a short scary story to discourage others from going to the dump.

In our lesson today, the children really enjoyed writing their own short scary story. I’m glad I don’t have to visit this dump, we have some very vivid imaginations in 3ES!
