Year 3 Term 2

YEAR 3 TEAM  2021
Year 3, some of us may be in school and some of may be at home BUT we are still an AMAZING TEAM.
Science-Light. What's in the bag? 12.1.21
We have begun our LIGHT topic in Science. We know that darkness is the absence of light and we have looked at some light sources today too. Mrs Mitchell made us some dark feely bags and we had to guess what was inside the bags without light helping us to see.
Happy New Year to all Year 3 children and their families. Wishing you and looking forward to a happy, safe and exciting 2021. 
By the way Year 2021 a multiple of 3? Can you remember our little Maths trick to work out this problem?
Hello to everyone working from home too.
Bird Watch 29th-31st January
This weekend you can take part in RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch. Mrs Smith helped us put fat into a bowl and then mixed in some bird seed. We rolled all this mixture onto a pine cone ready for us to hang outside in our garden. We are hoping to see blue tits, great tits, long tailed tits, sparrows, robins, wood peckers, wood pigeons, golden finches, blackbirds or magpies. 
#Wirralwave   22.1.21
We have all made our #Wirralwaves to put  in our windows at home.
I wonder how many we will see?
The notes E and D on a glockenspiel and a xylophone   7.1.21
Today we got all the tuned percussion out and followed music to play along using the notes E and D. Mrs Mitchell said we read the music really well and played together as a class band. 
Apologies but this will need to happen at a later date now.
***Recorder Lessons  beginning 12th January 2021***
Mrs Mitchell will be beginning recorder lessons in her Year 3 bubble classroom on the 12th January at 12pm. If you want to join her during lunchtime you will need-
  • A DESCANT recorder
  • The book Recorder From The Beginning Book 1 (Not Tune Book 1!) by John Pitts. It is £3.99 on Amazon at the moment. If you had an older brother or sister who learned the recorder then please use their book. I'm sure they won't mind! 
Learning an instrument and reading music is a wonderful thing BUT you have to be prepared to give up your lunchtime and practise each week.
