Dragon Days

After weeks of hard work  rehearsing  for our end of year play the evenings finally came when we performed in front of our family and friends.

Both nights were amazing in the wonderful hall at Kings Hawford School. We all acted magnificently, sang beautifully and read perfectly. It was a very proud moment for our parents and teachers. All the hard work paid off – Well done everyone!

 

Droitwich Dance Festival

Year 3 took part in the Dance Festival at Droitwich High School. They performed their Ancient Egyptian dance in front of other Droitwich first schools. Their dance was amazing and they all made us very proud with their beautiful behaviour.

Summer!

We have been enjoying lots of time outside despite the weather not always being on our side! We have all been working hard across all areas of the curriculum as we complete the final assessments for the end of the year. 

For the rest of the year we will be focusing on transition to make sure everyone is more than prepared for Year 1. 

The BIG Sing

Year 3 choir members had a lovely afternoon singing with other Worcestershire schools at Worcester University Arena.

We sang the songs we have been learning and were taught some new ones too. We had lots of fun and made our teachers very proud!

Science in year 3

This term in Science we have been learning about plants. We have cleared our vegetable garden and planted seeds. To find out what plants need to grow, we kept our seeds in different places around the classroom.

We have learnt about the parts of a plant and carried out an investigation to find out how plants drink water. Our pollination lesson was fun; we got to eat cheesy puffs then dust our fingers over the plants to see how insects pollinate flowers. 

Next, we will start looking at The Human Body.

Bell Boating

What a fantastic day year 3 and 4 had today Bell Boating. We rowed all day; from Vines Park all the way to Ladywood! It was hard work, but each boat worked as a team and helped each other to keep going.

We stopped for lunch at Ladywood Lock and experienced what it is like to go through a lock.

The weather was beautiful all day too. well done everyone. Excellent collaboration! 

 

First week back

Welcome back to the final term in year 3.
The Summer term has started off with a very busy week. We learnt all about keeping safe on the road in our Road Safely lesson with Louise; we acted out different scenarios then Louise measured our height to see which of us still need a car seat.

We have also started our new topic – The Stone Age; we are reading a new story and have begun the topic by creating Stone Age Art. We carried out cave drawings just as the Stone Age people would have done, except we drew them underneath our tables instead of in a cave – it was great fun though!

Easter

We had a lovely last week of this term. It was art week, focusing on drawing skills of people and places. We drew self portraits first and used mirrors for accuracy. We also drew the school bell tower in chalk on the playground and then we had a great time drawing in mud in the forest. On Thursday after the rehearsal in church we stayed to draw the church in our sketchbooks. 

We also enjoyed the Easter egg hunt which was organised by the friends. On Friday everyone looked fantastic in their bonnets and sang amazingly in church. See everyone in the new term, fingers crossed for some sunshine!

Awful Egyptians theatre trip

What an amazing end to our Ancient Egyptians topic! we all enjoyed an afternoon at Shrewsbury theatre watching A Horrible Histories performance of Awful Egyptians. It was a long journey; but well worth it!

There was lots of funny bits, disgusting bits and plenty of scary bits, especially in the second half when we wore 3D glasses, which made it all come to life.

We all had a fantastic afternoon and as always made our teachers very proud with our beautiful behaviour!

Ancient Egyptian Museum

Keystage Two welcomed visitors in to share all the wonderful work they have produced during their Ancient Egyptian topic.
The afternoon began with the children singing their Egyptian song and performing their Egyptian dances the parents Grandparents and other visitors.
They then took their guests into the classrooms, which were set out like a real museum. Amongst their artifacts were: Ancient Egyptian Death masks, canopic jars, mummified tomatoes and amulets all made by the children.
They also served refreshments they had made, year 4 had made humus with salad and pitta bread and year 3 had baked honey cake.
The children were very proud of their achievements; it has been a wonderful topic, they have shown great enthusiasm and this was obvious in their museum. Well done All of Key stage Two!
We are now looking forward to our trip to Shrewsbury Theatre to see ‘Awful Egyptians next week!

Book week

We had a wonderful week learning traditional poetry. In year 3, we studied the poems of Robert Louis Stevenson. We enjoyed learning his poems off by heart. On Monday afternoon our parents came in to share stories with us. On Tuesday we brought books to swap at lunchtime. Then on Thursday, World Book Day, we came to school in our pj’s. We went to different classes throughout the day to share a book with other children, then in the afternoon we had hot chocolate and marshmallows.  On Friday we brought our poetry chair designs to school: Ellie and Harry were the Keystage 2 winners: their chair designs looked amazing when the chairs were painted!

The following Friday, Red Nose Day, we shared our Book Week assembly with our parents. We read our poetry in groups and shared some of our own poems. We recited ‘From a Railway Carriage’ as a whole class. We did a brilliant Job.
