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
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!
In preparation for our Christmas service tomorrow, we spent the morning learning about Christingle and recapped what each part represents.
We then enjoyed making our own Christingle.
Thank you to everyone who came to our class assembly yesterday. As you saw, the children all worked incredibly hard putting it together and were very excited to share it with you.
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.
This half term the children have really enjoyed our first topic, learning all about the Stone Age. They have produced some very informative non – chronological reports using the information they researched.
Next half term, we will be looking at the Bronze and Iron Ages.
In our RE lessons we have been learning about Judaism. The children enjoyed creating freeze frames for the main points in the story ‘The Ten Plagues of Egypt’.
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!
