Year 3 Outdoors

Outdoor Learning Afternoon

Published on 26th March

Year 3 took their learning into the great outdoors on Thursday 19th March. We designed and built dens, blew giant bubbles, made 'woodland guardians' using sticks and toasted a marshmallow on a specially whittled stick. Despite the slightly damp weather we still had fun and learnt/practised some essential life skills.
The activities we took part in today could always be tried out at home in the coming weeks.

Art Lessons

Published on 13th March

In their Art lessons, Year 3 have recently been exploring mark making with chalks. The children were asked to draw a picture of the Iron Man (from the book 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes) and use shading techniques to show light and shadow. As you can see from these examples by children from Cygnus class, the results are absolutely fantastic."

Music

In their Music lessons, Year 3 have recently been looking at the works of famous classical composers. The children were asked to compose their own vocal piece of music inspired by
Camille Saint-Saens' 'The Carnival of the Animals'. In this photograph, you can see a pair of children from Hydra class writing a song using graphic notation. Can you guess which animal they are representing?

Daily Mile

Year 3 undertook an extended 'daily mile' run today in honour of Sir Mo Farah. We've been finding
facts out about him in our literacy lessons and linking his life story with a book we recently read- 'The Colour of Home' by Mary Hoffman. Naturally, we celebrated our achievement by doing the
Mo-bot.

Year 3 Titanic Day

Titanic Day

Published on 20th December

On Friday 22nd November, Year 3, clutching their first or third class tickets, embarked on a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in the world's most luxurious ship on her maiden voyage. Each classroom became the lounge areas for a different class of passenger, however, unlike the ill-fated Titanic, our voyage was successful.
The day began with time to write postcards home followed by instruction in the use of Morse code from our very own Jack Phillips. To fill the long days at sea, the children played deck and parlour games and learnt to dance in a class-appropriate manner (waltz or an Irish jig).
The day culminated in the passengers taking afternoon tea. First class were treated to china tea cups, table cloths and scones & jam, whereas, third class enjoyed cabin biscuits and plain cake.

Gertrude Jekyll

Published on 20th December

Friday 29th November is the birthday of Gertrude Jekyll, British horticulturalist, garden designer, writer and artist. As part of Year 3's 'Local Heroes' topic, we decided that we should celebrate the occasion by holding our own Gertrude Jekyll-inspired gardening afternoon.
The children spent the afternoon pruning, planting bulbs, sorting seeds, collecting leaves to protect the bushes in our fruit cage and making wildflower grenades. It was an absolute pleasure to get our hands dirty and fun was had by all that took part.

Year Godalming

Godalming Town

Published on 26th November

On the 13th November, Year 3 ventured into Godalming for the day. Fortunately, the weather was bright and sunny. On our way into Godalming we walked past Jack Phillips' memorial in Nightingale Road and spent some time in the larger memorial next to the river.
Having stopped briefly in the Pepperpot, we went on to visit the museum to learn more about Jack Phillips and to meet Gertude Jekyll! The trip concluded with a visit to the local library, having paused in Crown Court to complete a short survey with willing members of the public.
Our legs may have ached but our brains were bulging with information.
