Year 3 ML
Welcome to class 3ML!
ROBIN HOOD - Our Debate
As part of our work on Robin Hood, we have worked in groups to debate whether he was a hero or an outlaw. We were able to discuss reasons for both sides of the argument but most of us decided that he was a hero.
English - Our Robin Hood Debate
Red Nose Day
On Red Nose Day, 3ML wore red and non-uniform. We had a great day!
Science in 3ML
During our 'Forces and Magnets' topic in Science, we have been looking at a selection of magnets of different shapes and sizes. We investigated the answers to questions such as 'Which materials are magnetic?', 'Do magnets have to touch materials to work?' and 'What are the north and south magnetic poles?'
We had great fun!
3ML thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day. We celebrated the story of 'There's a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom'. We enjoyed time in our library along with other book activities. We dressed up in our finest clothes and walked the red carpet during our 'Oscar's' celebration.
We have been learning all about the Hindu festival of Diwali. We enjoyed having our very own Diwali celebrations. We enjoyed making rangoli patterns. We especially enjoyed our Hindu feast - we had curry, rice, chapattis and poppadoms. We acted out the story of Rama and Sita through dance. We learned about the significance of elephants for the Hindu people. We decorated our own elephants with sequins and other colourful materials. We had a fabulous day!
Key Instant Recall Facts for Maths
These are the key instant recall facts for maths in Year 3.
During our first week in school, we explored the story 'I'm Not Invited?' We looked at the emotions and feelings surrounding what it feels like when you are left out of something. The children then created some super self-portraits showing themselves feeling a range of emotions.
Stone Age Day 2021
Wilderness Outdoor Education provided a whole day of outdoor learning on The Stone Age. The children had a fantastic time, even though the weather wasn't wonderful. As well as learning a LOT of information, the children made fire, baked bread, explored Stone Age tools and materials and built shelters. A truly fantastic day was had by all.
Stone Age Boy
This term, our Quality Text in English is 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura. We are working through the book a small section at a time so that the children can become familiar with the story and enjoy exploring different aspects that the story has to offer. When we have finished reading the story, I will share a link to the book with you but as we are working towards the end, we would like all of the children to experience the same parts together.
