Stevie Wonder October 2021
As part of Black History month we have been enjoying the music of Stevie Wonder. He was born in 1950 and due to a problem with the incubator in his hospital he became blind. Mrs Mitchell told us that he was a child prodigy. This means he was a musical genius from a very early age. He had his first record produced when he was only 12 years old! WOW! We listened to Sir Duke, Isn't She Lovely, Happy Birthday and Faith from the movie Sing.
Celtic under and over lapping patterns with a colour wash October 2021
Geography-September 2021
Year 3 have travelled to Antarctica and South America so far this term. They can tell you all about how Antarctica is a frozen desert and how Robert Falcon Scott kept a diary of his brave and sad adventure to the South Pole. They know that there are 13 countries in South America and that the equator runs through Brazil. The River Amazon runs though Brazil as well.
It's all about ROCKS in our Science! September 2021
Observing the features of rocks. Deciding if the rocks are natural or manmade? Igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary?
Some photos were on the school Twitter too!
TeachRex October 2021
We were visited today by JAM, a tyrannosaurus rex! He was quite terrifying but if you got close enough and tickled him under his chin he quite liked it! From the pictures, you can see how brave some of us were! In the afternoon. TeachRex showed us how to become stars in our own green screen movie too!  Later on, Mrs Mitchell told us about the geologist, Mary Anning and how her discoveries of fossils influenced the scientists at the time.
