Happy Dot Day!
All of Year 3 and the school looked fantastic with their dots! We understand how important it is to be creative and that everyone has creativity within them.
European Day of Languages 26.9.22
Year 3 stepped into Italy today! We listened to Italian music, coloured an Italian flag, learned some Italian greetings and even did some Tarantella dancing.
We also learned about the tragedy of Pompeii, South Italy in 79AD when Mount Versuvius erupted. We already knew some words such as magma,lava and pumice from science!
We love learning new languages and learning about different cultures :
In PSHE we have been discussing how we would react in different situations and the choices we would make. We understand that all choices have consequences and that we can choose our own path. We have reminded ourselves why we have rules in school and what would have if we didn't...we even discussed our nightmare school! (We decided that no biscuit Tuesday would be pretty terrible!). Jigsaw Jino listened to our table discussions to make sure he agreed.
Trip to Shah Jalal Mosque
Year 3 and 4 had a great afternoon learning about the Islam religion, following on from our Religion and World Views lessons. We experienced a call to prayer and witnessed how Muslims pray. We then learned more about The Five Pillars of Islam, Ramadan, the clothes that Muslims wear and how Muslims prepare to pray.
Today year 3 tested whether rocks are permeable (do they absorb water?), durable(are they hard wearing?) and whether they are high density(sinks in water) or low density(floats in water).
