On Thursday our new topic was introduced in an exciting and interesting way. The children had to answer the following questions, what’s happened to our classroom? Why is it like this? What could have caused this? Our new Topic is 'What Makes the Earth Angry?'
Well done to our 'Certificate of Achievement Autumn Term ' pupils! You both have both shown perseverance, stick-ability and lots of hard-work over the half term. You are both always helpful around the classroom and to others. Also a well done to the rest of 3SJ who have been extremely enthusiastic and conscientious throughout this half term, it was very hard to choose only two from such a wonderful group of pupils!
In English we have been looking at 'stories in familiar settings', we have read the story 'I'll take you to Mrs Cole'. We have planned and wrote our own version of a story in a familiar setting. To ensure our work is the best it can be we have been using editing stations to evaluate, edit and improve our work. We had lots of fun moving around and up-leveling our work!
We had a wonderful time looking at L.S. Lowry. We carefully looked at the work of the famous artist to learn more about his style and techniques. We learnt that Lowry would create a very pale background against which to place his figures, making them stand out. After that, we used pastels to create a landscape scene in the style of L.S. Lowry. After this we recreated a portrait in the style of L.S.Lowry.
Science - We have loved our Science topic of Magnets and Forces. We have investigated the different poles of a magnet and if they attract or repel! We have also learnt which objects are magnetic in our classroom!
3SJ learning to dribble and pass in our outside P.E lesson. We loved starting to learn about Hockey!
3SJ Science investigation - Are all magnets the same strength? Working with our Kagan groups to find out!
