The children had great fun this week in maths weighing lots of different fruits and sharing  their results on bar charts.  They also measured liquids in various sized measuring jugs and converted from litres to millilitres and vice versa.  They practised counting in French and some children even started to write out their times tables in French!

A great week of learning Class 3, well done!

On Monday morning, Mrs Jones shared with Class 3 photos of her visits to Mayan sites.  The children really enjoyed locating the sites on a map of Central America.  They had great fun preparing for their Celebration Assembly.  They shared lots of knowledge about nutrition and the different food groups.  Their food plates, which illustrated a balanced diet, were particularly impressive.  They also sang "Baby Shark" in French with great gusto and of course everyone knew the tune!

This week in English we have had lots of fun debating, "Should Boys Learn Cookery?" with the children coming up with very strong arguments for and against the topic.  In Science, we have started our new topic of "Light and Shadows".  The children shared some fantastic knowledge and came up with some great questions to explore over the coming weeks.  We also read through the play script for the KS2 Christmas Nativity and the children loved it.

In English, the children have learned how to write book reviews.  "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" was the focus of their review.  We started our Design Technology topic this week.  The children are learning how to design and make their own packaging box.  We had great fun taking boxes apart and learning that many boxes are only actually made from one piece of cardboard.

On Monday, the children really enjoyed sharing their extended homework with the other classes in the school.  Please see attached photos of some of their work.  Wednesday was a very special morning as all of the children participated in a Chocolate Workshop led by Sarah from the Chappel Chocolate House.  They learned about where chocolate comes from and how it is made.  They had a chance to temper chocolate and to make and decorate two chocolate lollipops to take home.  This was a great hands-on experience with plenty of opportunities for chocolate tasting as well.  Great fun was had by all!

In History we learned about the foods the Mayans grew and ate.  We got to taste cocoa beans, avocados, mangos and corn tortillas.  We also looked at and cut open lots of other vegetables, many of which we eat today.  The children had lots of fun working in pairs researching about their chosen food.  They thought of questions they would like answered and used their computing skills to help them.  Finally on Friday we shared all of our learning at our Celebration Assembly.  Phew what a busy week!

This week the children have been busy designing Mayan masks and choosing complementary and analogous colours from the colour wheel.  They have also been learning about the Mayan writing system and how words are constructed.  Did you know that Mayan hieroglyphic writing is made up of syllabograms (representing sounds) and logograms (representing whole words)?  The children have also really enjoyed practising their song for the Harvest Service next week. 


This weeks certificates were awarded to:

Charlie; Rosie and Alliyah.  Our Times Tables Rockstar Champion was Issy.


Class 3 have had another busy week. In Maths, lots of work about securing our understanding of place value; what does each digit really mean? In English, we have been working hard to analyse and create character descriptions based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate. On Wednesday afternoon, I was particularly impressed by the children’s eagerness to research their new topic – The Maya Civilisation.

Welcome back to a new academic year. The children have already settled into the class routines and we have been very pleased with how well our Year 3 children have already integrated into the class.  Lots of hard work already completed and lots more still to come this half-term!
