This week, Ex Cathedra (a leading UK choir and music ensemble) are visiting Shrewsbury International and running a series of musical workshops across the school.

Today, 3OB had a fantastic percussion session with Ex Cathedra during which they learnt about different percussion instruments, played a series of rhythms together and finally performed a fantastic piece of ‘Samba’ music as a class. Take a look at us in action!

Weekly Review 26.10.18

Welcome back to Term 1B.  We hope you have had a restful and joyful break!  Thank you for your support with the fantastic holiday journals that the children have completed.  We can clearly see that there has been a lot of effort that has gone into this homework

In Literacy, we have been writing non-chronological reports on endangered animals.  The children have used a checklist to ensure that their writing has included the features of a non-chronological report.  They have used technical vocabulary in their reports and interesting adjectives.  The children used subheadings and paragraphs to present their work clearly

In Numeracy, we have been consolidating addition and subtraction skills.  We have used various methods such as column method and drawing their own number lines to solve calculations.  The children have solved problems involving addition and subtraction.

In Science, the children have carried out a fair test when investigating the question “Do people with long legs jump further than people with short legs?” They made predictions, drew clear diagrams, recorded their results in a table and wrote a short conclusion.

During Topic lessons this week, we sorted animals into the correct biomes.  The children had to decide which biome an animal was best suited to and explain why the animal should live there.

We are looking forward to the term ahead in which we will start our new topic “Roaming Romans!”

Weekly Review – Friday 12th October

Weekly Review – Friday 12th October

As half term finally falls upon us, we can reflect on a very busy but exciting first half term in Year 3. We have thoroughly enjoyed learning about ‘Endangered Animals’  and were very excited to showcase our amazing animal t-shirt designs at the fashion show this week to help promote animal protection. On Tuesday, we also had a great time participating in the Year 3 Swimming Gala and working with our Houses to try some wonderful wizardry challenges! We would like to take this opportunity to thank parents for all their support, not only during this week’s events, but across the whole half term and would like to wish everyone a relaxing and safe holiday. The Year 3 team are looking forward to reading the children’s holiday journals after half term to find out about all the brilliant things you have been doing over the half term break.

In Literacy, we have continued our learning about non-chronological reports and looked at the structure of such reports, including the use of a title, sub-headings and clear paragraphs. We have also ‘magpied’ key words and phrases from the model text about Giant Pandas to support us when writing our own reports, which we have started this week and will continue during the first three days back after half term.

In Numeracy, we moved on to using formal written (column) methods of addition and subtraction to add/subtract two 3-digit numbers. We have also used our reasoning and problem-solving skills to identify the most efficient methods for different calculations as well spot and correct errors when using this method, which has helped us to develop a deeper understanding of these key skills.

In Art, we worked extremely hard to design and print our animal-inspired t-shirts. Not only did we create prints of some of the most endangered animals but we also used slogans to help people to think about the issues and promote animal conservation.

In Science, we conducted an investigation based upon the question, ‘Can people with longer legs, jump further than those with shorter legs?’ This was based on our observations about human and animal skeletons, in particular how the skeleton of a frog is designed to support it in jumping long distances. Before investigating, we made predictions based upon our previous knowledge and reflected on these after analysing the results.

In Topic, we have been discussing the United Nation’s ‘Global Goals for Sustainable Development’ with a particular focus on ‘Life Below Water’ and ‘Life on Land’. As part of this, we have explored our own ‘kindred animal spirits’ using ICT and created our own pledges to support the Goals.

We wish you a very enjoyable half term and we look forward to welcoming the children back, refreshed and ready to learn on Wednesday 24th October.

3OB meet WWF to learn all about tigers!

Today, Year 3 were very lucky to be visited by WWF (World Wildlife Fund) who came to talk and raise awareness about one of the most endangered species – tigers! This afternoon, 3OB had the opportunity to understand more about why tigers are endangered and what action we can take to help save them. We created our own animal masks, worked as a team to complete tiger jigsaw puzzles and wrote postcards to the Khao Yai National Park Rangers, who work very hard to protect wild tigers. Not only did we have an exciting day of activities but we also learnt lots about animal conservation with many of us wanting to help save these beautiful creatures!

Take a look at us in action today…
