Welcome to Green class for 2020 into 2021.
We are currently learning about our Active Planet in Theme for Geography and Animals including humans in Science. Ask your children to tell you what they have learnt so far, what can they tell you about our Entry Point for each topic?
Monday 8th of March:
For our first full day back at school today, we did some really fun activities, including an obstacle course! The children were split into two teams and had to work together to decide how to complete the obstacle course and cheer each other on. The children shared what went well for them and what they would do better next time. We discussed the need to stretch and to warm-up before any activities.
Today, Friday 12th February, the children in Green and Verde class came together build, design and paint volcanoes before conducting a simple scientific experiement to cause an eruption from within their volcanoes! The children used mod-roc, newspaper, masking tape and a plastic bottle to shape and design their volcanoes before painting them. Afterwards we took our volcanoes outside and using Vinegar, red food dye and Bi-carbonate of Soda, we hope to create some fabulous explosions. Please check out the class video page as well to hopefully see videos of our volcanoes and their brilliant eruptions!
For "No-Screen Friday" we have been designing and building Jungles inside of a shoebox, the children were given a small amount of input about what we might find in a Jungle and then went with it. They have produced extremely creative and exciting dioramas. We are all very impressed and amazed by the creativity and resilience to create their projects and learn new skills along the way.
Well done to all of the children in Green class and we hope to see some of yours from home too.
10 Things in a Winter's Forest
The children in school have been working hard to create a list poem sharing what Lucy Pensieve would see in the Winter Forest as she walks through the wardrobe into Narnia.
The children designed their poems and then read them out loud. They are in the video page for Green class.
We hope you enjoy them too.
Explorer - Ernest Wigglesworth
During break time this morning, a mysterious bag appeared in Verde class with a letter for all of Year 3 children...
Inside the bag was a letter addressed to the children of Year 3 and some items from Ernest with a list describing the items he had provided.
The children had a great time investigating the smells and colours of the different items bringing out lots of giggles and ideas from everyone, including the adults in the room too.

THE DAY THE CRAYONS QUIT
The children came to school dressed as their favourite colour to help start the unit to The Day The Crayons Quit, a wonderful story by Oliver Jeffers. We then discussed the emotions their crayons may have felt, or showed in the crayons' letters and got them to act that out as well. The adults joined in as well.
Ask your children why Orange and Yellow crayon aren't talking to each other anymore and how Green crayon feels about it.
