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.
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!
Great team work, well done to everyone, we were proud of you!
Juniper class took on character roles this week to prepare them for writing. They acted out a scene from a story and then wrote a diary entry from the point of view of one of the children in the story.
The children used tone of voice, body language and facial expressions to retell an adventure story titled ‘ Adventures at Sandy Cove.’
