Welcome to Class 3.
ALL PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE OF OUR WORK CAN BE FOUND IN GALLERIES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE
A very warm welcome to Class 3's website page. Myself, (Mrs Lloyd) is the teacher in the Year 3 class. We have many exciting educational activities planned for the following year. I am looking forward to a productive and inspiring first year in KS2 for most children and a second one for a lucky few. Mrs Farrington and Mrs Bradbury also support some of the children in Class 3 throughout the week.
Class 3 Routines
PE - will be on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school.
Spellings - Every Tuesday new spellings are handed out (to be practised at home) for a spelling test the next week in school.
Homework - Homework is given out on a Thursday to be collected in the following Wednesday. If completed before the day it's due in, it can be handed to Mrs Lloyd. Any homework sent home will consolidate what your child has previously learnt in class.
Reading Books - Before changing any reading books, the children must inform the teacher. Books are usually changed at play times and dinner times so as not to disrupt the lessons. To develop more independence the children will change their own reading books.
Reading is very important in Year 3 & 4, so we encourage your child to read for approximately 10-15 minutes everyday and record it in their reading record, ideally signed by a parent/guardian.
It is always advised that you discuss the book your child is reading, so that they have a good understanding of the text and vocabulary.
Class 3 have enjoyed making Victorian type purses as part of a history, DT link.
They looked at a variety of purses, the design and purpose. Then they cut and dyed their material. Class 3 worked very well to develop their sewing skills with the help of Mrs Farrington.
They then decorated their purses with buttons. Well done Class 3.
Class 3 have been learning about The Victorians and comparing their life today, to that of a Victorian child. The have looked at Victorian houses, clothes, schools and working conditions.
A trip to Port Sunlight is planned to visit a real Victorian village.
Class 3 have been writing their own adventure stories, based on The Tunnel, By Anthony Browne. They have worked hard to include a range of punctuation, adverbs, clauses and fronted adverbials. They are very proud of their stories.
Class 3 have been learning to create animations using a range of software. We began by using Pivot stickman to move a character on screen. We discovered the best results were gained by making small changes each time and using the ‘onion skin’ to identify how much our character had moved. This week we have started to use stop motion animation software to create simple animations. The children have really enjoyed working on their projects - well done Class 3!
This term, class 3 are learning how to play xylophones and glockenspiels. We are playing accompaniments to well known tunes such as London's Burning, Row, Row, Row your boat and Frere Jacques.
we are having a great time!
Class 3 re-enacted the Lord's Supper on part of our discussion on trust and betrayal in the Easter story.
We had bread and wine and sat together to pray and sing.
Swimming has now finished till next year. Everybody did well in developing their skills at swimming and building up their stamina.
Class 3 have been working on 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. Not only have they written their own stories and diaries but they have also used charcoal to draw observational pictures from the book.
Tag Rugby With Warrington Wolves
Class 3 are enjoying a 4 week rugby course with a Warrington Wolves coach. In these lessons the children are learning different skills and warm ups, which involve working in pairs and as a team. Great fun was had playing tag rugby relay squares and Sit down your out!
We had to listen very carefully.
During their computing lessons, with Mrs Gorman, Class 3 have been using Book Creator to retell the story of The Highwayman. We thought carefully about how to present our images and text, and the children all showed great imagination in the different ways they completed books. It was especially fun to listen to some of the class recording themselves reading their book to make it both an audio and visual creation!
Follow the links below to see some tof the finished versions of their books.
Class 3 have had a wonderful time making Easter biscuits. We measured out our ingredients, followed a recipe then used our baking skills to cream the mixture together, fold in the flour, beat an egg and knead the dough.
After chilling in the fridge, the children rolled out their dough and cut 2 Easter shaped biscuits. In the afternoon, they iced and decorated their biscuits ready for home time.
We will say goodbye to Miss Henderson on Friday 26th January. Class 3 have enjoyed having her teaching and we hope we have taught her a lot. Good luck in the future Miss Henderson!
Class 3 have looked at the artist Van Gogh and reproduced a picture of starry night.
Class 3, are enjoying a 10 week course on swimming. They are learning how to swim, developing their confidence in the water and building up their stamina and strength to swim a length.
Miss B Henderson has joined Class 3 for a short period of time. She is a first year trainee teacher who is gaining experience in the classroom. Her role is to support the class teacher, become involved in school life and teach lessons of her own. She is thoroughly enjoying her time with Class 3 and has been made most welcome.
Design and Technology Nativity Stables.
Class 3 have enjoyed making and designing Nativity stables as part of their Design Technology wooden structures project. They used hack saws, miter boards and glue guns. They had to accurately measure and cut balsa and dowel wood. They then created their uniquely designed stables some of which included: ladders, animal pens and a cross.
A lot of fun was had making the stables.
As part of our topic, Are all Churches the Same?, Class 3 visited their local church, St Helen Hollinfare, to have a look around. We looked at the organ, pulpit, lecturn and altar. We then discussed why this furniture is used in churches.
Class 3, then drew some objects found in the church and talked about what they found most interesting.
As Remembrance day approached, Class 3 looked at the importance of this day, what happened and why we should remember. They then watched the Sainsbury's Christmas advert from a few years ago depicting the Christmas Truce.
Class 3 then wrote newspaper articles, writing as a journalist, to tell of this amazing event.
Class 3 have enjoyed a 10 week African Drumming workshop. The children have had a lot of fun playing quite tricky African rhythmic patterns on Djembe drums.
Mike, the teacher from Learn to PLay Live, has really enjoyed working with the children and was very impressed with how well they managed the difficultrhythms.
Class 3 have looked at the artist Van Gogh and his work. They particularly looked at his painting on sunflowers and produced their own, in his style.
Manchester United Foundation
Every Tuesday, Class 3 are enjoying a football session with Manchester United Foundation. Through these sessions they are developing ball skills and sportsmanship.
Class 3, enjoyed a visit to Liverpool Cathedral to celebrate the festival of Harvest. We had a guided tour around the cathedral to look at the beautiful architecture.
Then the children spent an hour discussing and making a booklet about Harvest to take home.
After lunch, Class 3 Learned about the Jewish festival of 'Sukkot.' They found out about the meaning of Sukkot. They also learnt about the similarities and differences between Jewish and Christian people.
We all had a very enjoyable visit.
On Friday 22nd September, Class 3, led the Harvest worship in church for the whole school.
The theme was Jesus' parable 'The Sower and the Seed!'
Children acted out the meaning of all the seeds and demonstrated how we should live our lives as a Christian. They then read aloud a Harvest acrostic poem.
Prayers were said at the end and a variety of Harvest hymns were sung.
