Moving on to a new period of time in history – Can you guess?

This week we learnt about the Bell beaker people and designed our very own bell beaker pot. We learnt new vocabulary during a game of bingo in preparation to make the pots and created a unique pattern.

In topic we learnt about a new period in history ‘The Iron Age’. We really enjoyed using the laptops to carry out our own research on this. Some of us found some very interesting facts and useful information.

We also started writing a first draft of our Otzi story in English. I was really impressed with the vocabulary and detail added to this independent piece of writing. We then used some examples in a whole class feedback session to help us with our editing. I can’t wait to read the finished pieces.

My learner of the week this week was Germanas for for not only working so hard on making the right decisions but also for working on our current learning behaviour relationships. This week you have listened incredibly well and knew when it was your turn to share ideas with others. You also help build the confidence of others when it is needed and gave some lovely comments to pupils and staff on out Christmas dress up day. What a lovely thing to do. Well done Germanas, I am incredibly proud of the week you have had. Keep it up! 

My Lexia legends were Zaina and Isaac. Well done to both of you!

My TT rockstars were Soma, Germanas, Lilly Hans and Ivy. Huge congratulations.

I am always impressed with our determination to earn these certificates. Keep up the good work Year 3! So proud 🙂 I also admired how well the class coped with all of the changes that were going on in school last week. They all did a great job and persevered on.

Another busy week in 3HL

Miss Lucas took our P.E session this week after hearing the news that the Leeds Rhinos coach is having to self isolate. We still had fun practicing our ball skills making sure we had control of the ball when passing and dribbling.

On Wednesday it was ‘No Pens Day Wednesday’. This was a day dedicated to putting our pencils down and picking up our language. We had so much fun! It was also a perfect opportunity to practice our relationship learning behaviour collaboration that we are focusing on this half term. It involves working as a trio and each member of the group having a designated role. Definitely a hard skill to learn but important to have!

We also continued our anti bullying learning this week by making posters and chanting outside. We learnt the definition of some new words and realised the importance of not becoming a bystander. Our chant was as follows ‘Hey hey ho ho bystanders have got to go’.

In Maths I was really impressed with the depth of learning during one of our in focus questions. Without any input the class were able to come up with their own reasoning when starting our new multiplication topic.

A very blurry photo of my learner of the week this week (sorry). My learner of the week is Joshua for really impressing me with his collaboration skills during ‘No Pens Day Wednesday’. He took his role as leader like a pro and negotiated well when orally retelling the story of Otzi. Well done!

My Lexia legends are Shangen, Fahad, Michelle, Ario, Bilal, Joshua and Germanas. Wow so many of you this week. Your determination is inspiring 3HL!

My TT Rockstars are Shangen, Germanas and Ayesha. Again more than last week! Well done Year 3, keep up the good work!

Odd socks for Anti-bullying week

Last Monday we wore our odd socks to school for anti bullying week. Take a look below. Do you recognise any?

This week we have been practicing our editing skills in order to peer mark our partners work. This really helped us spot the success criteria given and realise the importance of checking. Some of us also liked having the role of being a teacher too!

My learner of the week this week was Ivy because she is such a great role model for relationships in our class. She collaborates really well with others and knows when to support others in need. She is so kind and helpful. I have been really impressed with her in maths this week noticing when she can not only support others, but when others can support her. Keep up the good work Ivy, well done!

My Lexia legends are Seb, Shang and Ivy.

Germanas also completed all of his TT Rockstar sessions!

Keep up the hard work everyone! I love celebrating our success!

Some talented musicians in 3HL!

At the start of the week we learnt about the story ‘Noah’s Ark’ from the Bible in R.E. We acted out different freeze frames to help us consider the different thoughts and feelings of Noah.

On Friday we had music with Mr Mercer. It was so much fun! Take a look at our video below.

Congratulations to my learner of the week Archie. You are my learner of the week this week for trying so hard after having some time off school. You have came back like you were never off! I have really been impressed with your attitude in maths. You have listened and imitated to ensure you understand the method of column subtraction with renaming correctly. It is so lovely to see your confidence increase because of your resilience. Keep up the hard work!

Lexia legends this week are Caitlin, Ario and Bilal. Well done to you all. It was also great to see the whole class take part in TT Rockstars week this week! Keep it up!

Lastly, thank you so much to those who attended parent consultations this week. It was lovely to finally get to meet some of you even if it was virtually!

Straight back to it!

We enjoyed getting straight back into our learning this week after having a week off.
In Maths we started subtraction and looked at different methods we can use to find the answer.

We then started looking at the Bronze Age in topic, but before we did we ordered historical events we have learnt so far throughout our school years in a time line so that we could see where the Bronze Age came. We discovered it was another time period in prehistory and came after the Stone Age. How interesting!

My learner of the week this week is Ruby for always trying her best and using her knowledge to help others. She has lovely relationships with both children and adults in the class and is always eager to work and share her ideas with others. You really impressed me in Maths this week and shared your understanding with others struggling. Well done to you!

My Lexia legends are Seb, Ario and Ayesha. Huge congratulations!

Black History Month

Well done to Hugo, Caitlin and Isaac for completing their Black History Month Project.

Caitlin decided to use Minecraft and Art to complete her project on Rosa Parks and Frida Kahlo. How creative!

Isaac created a fact file on Barack Obama. How fantastic!

Lastly, Hugo created a poster on Black History Month, including a range of black influences. Well done to you!
