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.
As part of our home learning we have created some fantastic Ancient Egypt models using a range of different materials. Have a look at some of our creative ideas!
Y4 went to the indoor athletics and worked extremely hard in the track and field events. The boys came 4th and the girls came first!! Well done girls!
The girls team are now through to the sports partnership final at Royal Masonic on Thursday. We will keep you posted!
Good luck girls!
On Tuesday 4th February, two football teams went to Parmiters to play in a tournament. Both teams played amazingly well with huge amounts of effort and team spirit. They did us all proud. Well done to all the girls. Well done to Team A who are through to the finals on Thursday 27th February. Good luck!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
