Today year 3 became Egyptians for the day and discovered lots of interesting facts about Ancient Egypt. We even met some famous Egyptian Gods and successfully lifted the curse of the tomb.
On Monday, Juniper class were lucky enough to be visited by Healthy Heroes, who spoke to us about the importance of keeping both our bodies and brains healthy. We completed lots of fun and thought-provoking activities and even got to take part in a dance to keep us active!
The children have loved joining in with the festivities this week. They enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner yesterday and then this morning the fun continued with our class Christmas party. Well done to Jaden who was the winner of pin the nose on Rudolf! Thank you for all of your generous donations.
Today year 3 enjoyed a wonderful day out to Tring Natural History Museum. We looked closely at lots of different animal skulls to investigate what animal the skull might belong to. We used our knowledge of the different teeth types to help our investigation. We also roamed through all of the museum’s exhibits, looking closely at the different animals on display. We even got the chance to dress up as some of our favourite animals.
A massive thank you to all of the parent helpers who joined us and made the trip possible. We’re already looking forward to our next adventure.
Today Juniper class took part in a range of activities as part of our work for anti-bullying day. In one such activity we investigated the power of our words. We passed around an apple and said horrible and mean things to it. We then passed around a second apple and gave the apple lots of compliments. Afterwards, we cut open both apples to discover the impact that our nasty words can have. We were reminded that although the impact of mean words may not always be visible on the outside, they make a difference on the inside.
We also enjoyed wearing odd socks to school to show our support for anti-bullying day.
This week Juniper class read the story of The Heart and the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers. As a class we discussed the meaning of the story and then thought specifically about the different emotions which were being portrayed. We then related these to times when we may have felt these feelings in our own lives.
Larch and Juniper class been busy researching Egypt. We have created a fact file. Made 3D pyramids using the net of a square based pyramid. We have located Egypt and the United Kingdom. Looked at religious beliefs and had fun creating Mummies too.
We begun making our volcanoes yesterday. We are looking forward to finishing them off this week. Ms Dickson was really impressed with the good cooperation between group members.
Well done to Daisy for being chosen for ‘Parent and Players’ trophy and to Chase for being awarded top goal scorer!
Today’s Virtual Reality Workshop was fantastic! The children all said how much they loved the experience and would like to repeat it. This was very obvious by the continual exclamations of ‘Wow’ heard throughout, and as you can also see being said in some of these photos!
