Year 3 are visiting Avon Heath Country Park this week in order to investigate nature, with a particular emphasis on digestion. Today a wide variety of wildlife was viewed, including lizards, butterflies and insects.
Our Year 3 children and children from Queen’s Park Infants showed excellent teamwork when they joined together to play football this afternoon. The mini-tournaments were a big success and it was great to see the younger pupils taking their first steps into our Academy ahead of next year’s move.
Year 3 produced some excellent pencil observational drawings of Roman items this afternoon. Excellent concentration led to excellent pieces!
As always, the quality of home learning submitted has been to a very high standard this term. In year 3 there was skilful use of chocolate bars to fill spaces within writing this week.
There are some amazing smells coming from the cookery suite. The cross curricular content to maths is also excellent with key vocabulary being used: equal, equivalent, estimate, mass, proportion….
The children always wow us with their display writing. The quality is truly outstanding!
As an introduction to their ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’ topic, Year 3 had a day today based around chocolate. Part of this was a taste test and there were some wonderful hats made by the children, as well as the teachers, on show.
