RE workshop

Y3 have had Mrs Bastable come in to teach them stories from Jesus’s life. Today, we looked at the story of Zaccheus and how Jesus loves everyone, that everyone deserves love and can change their behaviour. We thought about how Zaccheus’s behaviour changed from the beginning of the story to the end. 

Tanners Wood News

BREAKING NEWS: This week was Larch class assembly! Our Tanners Wood news reporters travelled to the Amazon Rainforest and back to Ancient Egypt to interview experts and report back on all our learning in geography, history, English, maths and music! Everyone performed fantastically and spoke loud and clear. Well done everyone!

Balancing Act

This half term in indoor PE we are exploring pathways over, under, across, through and around different pieces of equipment. This week Miss Reynolds set us the challenge to experiment with different methods of travel over the equipment and to hold a balance at one point during our pathway. Check out our balances!

Ancient Egyptian Workshop

This week Larch class were lucky enough to step back in time and experience an Ancient Egyptian workshop. We learnt about when in history the period happened, discovered the process of mummification and listened to (and even acted out) some stories told to us by famous Egyptian figures. Everyone loved dressing up as Egyptians and taking part in all the different activities!

Scientific Investigations

Our Science topic this term is plants. We have been busy completing two separate experiments! Our first one (which we are still in the process of observing) was to test the effect of using fertiliser on plants. We planted beans and plants and will be observing and recording their growth each week. Our second was to investigate how water travels through a plant – we put food colouring in the plant’s water to see what would happen. For both experiments we came up with our own predictions and once we have collected the results, will be completing conclusions of what we have found!

Healthy Heroes

Today Larch class were lucky enough to take part in a ‘Healthy Heroes’ workshop run by the Three Rivers and Watford School Sports Partnership. The children took part in a range of activities which explored and promoted good physical, mental and social health. Everyone participated and had some fantastic answers!

Year 3 Circuits

Last week, both Larch and Juniper took part in a circuit challenge. Not only did we practise our sport skills (throwing, dribbling, javelin, etc) but we worked on our communication and ability to work as a team. Miss Reynolds and Miss Bennett were very impressed with the mature behaviour they witnessed. Well done Year 3!
