Feel the Rhythm
In Music, we spent a lesson focusing on rhythm. To do this, we analysed a greeting song from New Zealand, more commonly known as the Haka, to observe how bodies were used to create a rhythm.
Afterwards, we got into groups to create our own Haka. It is safe to say that we got into it!
A Royal Party
To celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Class 3 decided to have a very British afternoon.
We nibbled on some English snacks like crumpets, jam tarts, sausage rolls and Victoria sponge cake whilst listening to British songs.
You may recognise a few royal faces!
In Geography, we learnt about earthquakes. We found it very interesting!
We learnt about what we should do if there was an earthquake. Whenever someone shouted "Earthquake!" we quickly, yet carefully, got under the closest table and put our hands over our heads. We knew that it was important to stay calm.
Using papier-mâché, we created some Stone Age axes. We did our best caveman impression with our new tools!
We were learning about the Stone Age for our topic and after viewing many cave drawings and paintings, we thought that we would have a go ourselves.
We turned the classroom into a cave by turning off all the lights and shutting the blinds.
We talked about how people in the Stone Age would not have sat at a table on a chair to draw, so we thought it would be fun to try drawing the way people in that era did.
We stuck brown paper underneath the table and lay down on the floor to do our cave drawings.
It made our arms tired, but we thought the art was great.
We had a very busy afternoon when we tried to replicate the digestive system during a science experiment.
It was a lot of fun, but it got very messy very quickly!
Gran... Can You Rap?
As part of our poetry unit, we thought we would try some performance poetry.
So, after watching Michael Rosen perform some of his poems (like Chocolate Cake), we performed a poem called Gran... Can You Rap? We really thought about our body language, facial expressions, tone of voice and volume of our voices.
We had a very exciting day last week when we had several surprising visitors!
Class 3 were visited by a tarantula, some meerkats, a coatimundi, a Burmese python and a lesa tenrec.
What a fantastic way to start our Animals including Humans topic!
Using watercolours, we blended 3 different colours to create a sunset effect.
Some of us used a white crayon to add the setting sun to the picture.
When the paint dried, we drew the silhouette of a tree and an African animal before colouring it in by using a black crayon.
They turned out really well!
Our first topic was Dreams. As a class, we collaborated to recreate Vincent Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' for our display. Teamwork!
