It was lovely to have Archie back with us in Year 3 for a short time on Thursday. He called in for our Rememberence day lesson and joined in with our 2 minute silence and the linked activity. Everyone was pleased to see him and chatted happily to him and talked to him about what we had been doing in school.
We hope to see him again soon and hope he's soon feeling better.
On Monday, Nick came from the Wildlife Trust to spend the day in Year 3. We looked at the different trees and animals that are found in British Woodlands and about how the Eaton Estate mange their woodland areas.
In the afternoon we walked to Dukes Drive and did a variety of activities based on the mornings learning. We were squirrels hiding our acorns and had to remember where we had hidden them. We measured trees to find out their age and did a Scavenger hunt to find different autumn objects such as leaves, conkers and acorns. The children had a lovely time and some great outdoor learning took place! .

We have been looking at information texts in English this week and have looked at the difference between fiction and non- fiction texts. We have written contents pages, glossaries and index. We have produced our own posters in ICT to advertise Egyptian holidays and the children have really enjoyed producing a non-fiction book about Egypt. We researched the topics and wrote them producing artywork and writing using Egyptian Heiroglyphs. Phots of some of the work can be seen in Our Gallery.
Don't forget to use Times Table Rockstars over the holidays, the children have logins and passwords in the front of their Homework books. You need to do 10 Studio tests to get a Baseline and Garage bands are organised for groups to match abilities.
I hope you all have a lovely half term and have fun playing

This week we have been continuing our Egypt topic. We have been writing our own Information texts on Ancient Egypt and looking at different Information Texts and the features within them. The children have been enthusiastic about the topic and finding out facts about the Ancient Egyptians and their lives.
Our history work looked at photographs of Egyptian artefacts to see what we can find out about the lives of the Ancient Egyptians; finding out about homes, clothing, food and drink and art, and presenting our findings with our groups to the class.
See our Gallery for photographs of the children presenting their work to the class.

This week in Year 3 we have been looking at the Human Skeleton in our science work. We have talked about the different kinds of joints and are learning the names of some of the bones in our bodies. We have made paper skeletons and labelled them and talked about why our skeletons are important.
Have a look at this Deadly 60 game to learn more about animal skeletons!

This week we have enjoyed taking part in the Belgrave Healthy schools week. We have been joining in with the Key Stage 2 Daily Mile Challenge. Research has shown that 30 minutes of exercise per day benefits children as it raises attainment, increases concentration and motivation and promotes health and well- being in children. You can find out more here.
We also enjoyed a workshop with Sasha from Hoola Nation on Tuesday. We had great fun in the hall and outside practising our moves! In the afternoon we had a go on the smoothie bikes and designed our own smoothies then tasted them. Our maths focus this week was Data Handling and we created a survey linked to our Healthy School project to find out favourite healthy foods, sports or smoothie flavours. In science we looked at how to keep our bodies healthy.
We have also done some Yoga sessions and are looking forward to a session with Chester Football Club this week too!
