Our Big RE Question

February 10th, 2017

In R.E. our big question is “What do Christians believe God is like?”.  As a class we had a discussion and here are some of our ideas.

“God is like salt and melts all the bad things so the good things can come back”.

“God is willing to take a risk for the world”.

“If you make a mistake God will still forgive you”.

“God loves everyone he won’t not love anyone”.

We have also been thinking about our parents and how they show that they love us. We had to draw an outline one of our parents and write what they do for us.

Class 3’s Maths Cafe

February 10th, 2017

On the 8th February 2017 Class 3 had a maths café with the parents who were able to come. We had fun! We played games and did different activities such as, measuring parents and timing how many times they could write their name on a piece of paper. On the netbooks we had maths games like Dino Dig, Brick Blaster and Hit the Button. Finally we had cake, biscuits and drinks. We are already looking forward to our science café next month.

Rocks and soils

November 24th, 2016

In class 3’s science we have been learning about rocks and soils. This week we learnt how fossils are formed. Skye brought in some amazing examples, one was a big ammonite. We also learnt about soils and as a class we had a go at making a wormery. After a few days we looked at the wormery to see  how the horizontal layers of compost and sand had been mixed up by the movement of the worms.

Class 3’s Reading Cafe

November 16th, 2016

On Tuesday 15th November every class in school hosted a reading cafe for parents and other adults who wanted to share books and activities with their children. In Class 3 we read the first part of ‘The Hobbit’ by JRR Tolkien, listening carefully to the description of both the Hobbit Hole and the Hobbits themselves. Then, with the help of our grown-ups, we made Hobbit puppets using card, split-pins, cloth, wool, doweling and felt-tipped pens. Everybody enjoyed being creative – and eating the delicious cakes and biscuits! We would like to say thank you to all the people who were able to come along to work with us in our cafe. We are already looking forward to the next one!

Personal Survival

March 7th, 2016

On the 1st of March class 3 went swimming where we did personal survival. Personal survival is when you learn about keeping safe in the water. You have to be VERY careful near ponds and lakes! There were three groups and each did a different part of personal survival. The first group learnt about avoiding rocks and other obstructions in the water. The second found out how tread to  water and how to keep warm in water . the last group concentrated on rescuing people from the side of the pool . We had lots of fun while learning about this very important topic and we would like to thank Lindsay and all the other teachers at Diss Swimming Pool.  🙂

Olly Day’s magic road safety show

February 29th, 2016

In school on Thursday 25 February we had a visitor called Olly Day. He told us all about road safety and showed us some magic tricks as well. In one of them he had some ropes,  one short, one medium and one long. They each had names, the short one was Stop, the medium one was Look and the long was And Listen. He asked us if we wanted the ropes to be the same length and we did, so he folded  them all together. Two of the pupils pulled the ropes and the ropes ended up as the same length! We learned lots about keeping safe on the road, not crossing on a bend and the importance of wearing cycle helmets.

We investigated where the highest mountains are around the world.We used atlases to find the locations of mountain ranges in every continent.We also used dictionaries to define lots of geographical vocabulary. One of the most FUN things we have done was drawing pictures  to show the features of mountains.

February 8th, 2016

On the 4 th  February we had a special surprise when the Irie Steel Pan Workshop came into our School. Marcella and Junior played all kinds of different songs including ‘who let the dogs out?’ which we sang along to. We all danced the conga around the hall, it was  fantastic fun. We all had a chance to play the steel drums before we learnt how to dance ska. Marcella and  Junior have a brilliant website  where you can play the steel drum! www.iriesteelpanworkshops.com.

Last week we were writing a recount about a lonely robot Our writing had a twist though!As we were using DADWAVERS! our writing turned out to be different to any other old recount. We think they were much more interesting! Some of us used handwriting pens to copy up our work for display.                                                                                                 Sophie Seeley
