- About Us
Thank you so much to all the families that came to our parent afternoon. The children loved getting messy with the clay and creating their own Canopic Jar design.
This week, Colin Gibbins, the author of 'The Rainbow Quest', came into school to talk about fantasy stories, settings, characters and endings. We worked in small groups to make predictions about the story and used our imagination to think of our own fantasy plots. Some of us had the chance to buy a signed, first edition copy of 'The Rainbow Quest'. Thank you to Colin for coming into school and sharing his book with us.
To start our busy week in year 3, we made our very own mythical creatures, as part of our English fantasy topic. We had some very imaginative ideas and some amazing adjectives to describe our sidekicks/villains. This is going to prepare us for creating our own fantasy setting, where our creatures will live.
In PE we have been adding to our volcanic dance sequence, with some children showing amazing volcanic eruption dance moves. We have showed super team work and evaluated each others performances.
In topic we have moved onto looking at pictures of Ancient Egypt and comparing life then to our modern lives now. Thank you to all families who have sent in some wonderful topic research and artefacts - we have had some great discussions about them.
This week we started our new Topic Ancient Egypt! We looked at lots of different artefacts and discussed what they might be!
We have also been practising a poem called Courage. We discussed how we can show courage this year when challenging ourselves.
A little reminder,
-Reading books must be brought to school everyday
-P.E days are Wednesday and Thursday
We would like to invite you in to school on Tuesday 9th October to work with the children in creating a Canopic jar that they have designed.
This will be from 1.30 and children may leave once the project is completed.
Canopic jars were used in Ancient Egyptian mummification ceremonies to preserve the internal organs.
We look forward to seeing you there!
