WB 18.10.21- Oak Became Graffiti Artists
Year 3 celebrated the end of their learning journey, Urban Pioneer, by becoming graffiti artists.
We had to plan and design a graffiti tag with our names or initials. First, we practiced spelling our names out in different graffiti styles. Then, we chose the design and colours to go around our names. When we were ready, we used special marker pens to decorate so our tags would really stand out.
We had a lot of fun, but we can’t wait to see what our next learning journey is.
Today in maths, Oak were learning how to bridge through ten using part whole models and number bonds to 20. We were able to partition our single digit numbers, but then we fell into the learning pit. We found it challenging to choose the right part whole model that would help us answer the number sentence. We haven’t made it out of the learning pit yet, but we will continue working on this together until we can climb out.
Year 3 have been set new home learning that can be accessed through the Google Drive. The homework is based on our new topic (Metals) that we will start next week!
Mrs Jeffery and Miss Halloway look forward to seeing all the home learning!
As the home learning as been arriving in class this week, the children have had the opportunity to share it with their classmates. We learned from what each other had being learning about and celebrated each others successes. We also managed to enjoy a few games of top trumps too.
Thank you for all your hard work. It has been lovely to see all the learning you have been getting up to at home.
Today, Year 3 had a special visitor as part of the school’s ongoing celebrations leading up to World Book Day this Thursday. Alina Constantine, a bilingual story teller, read to the children an exciting story in Romanian and English.
The children also learnt some Romanian key words and took part in freeze frame activities to show case their new learning- linked to the MFL curriculum.
As part of PSHE “Respecting Differences” the children were also given insight into aspects of Romanian life and culture.
Year 3 and 4 had the most amazing time sampling a wide range of foods connected to China. The teachers were especially impressed by all of the lovely sharing that took place (as well as children being very daring with trying new things!).
Please have a look at this short video we made to remember the event:
Today, in Oak Class, we have been finding out the French translation for what we want to be when we grow up. Can you guess what we want to be? Capitalise d’un navire, chanteur, gymnaste, agriculteur.
Beth in Oak class worked hard with Mummy to produce not one but two tin people at home. Well done for trying hard at school but at home as well.
This week Year 3 have been focusing on place value in maths. We used dienes blocks to represent different numbers. The children even showed a deeper understanding by using ten one-hundred blocks to make one thousand.
Children who have been taking part in Mr Hardee’s gymnastic club were selected to represent the school in a competition against the other schools in the learning community at TCS.
The 22 children selected from year 3 and 4 all had to learn a floor routine including forward rolls, cartwheels and challenging balances such as arabesques. Furthermore, they had to perform a vault. All children were judged and their scores go towards their team’s total score.
It was mentioned by the organisers of the competition that the children were impeccably behaved setting a super example! Mr Hardee is extremely proud of them.
We we find out the results tomorrow so look out for the blog!
