Week ending17th March 2017
We have had a brilliant week in Barracudas and Cuttlefish!
On Monday we visited the Jerwood Art Gallery in Hastings as part of an ongoing project for Year 3. We worked with an artist called Ed Boxall, where we were able to carry out printing. Miss Shackel took us on an adventure around the Old Town too in search of hidden gems and pebbles!
In Science we have been looking at plants. We carried out the celery experiment to see how plants absorb liquid but are still waiting for the results - watch this space!
Finally we all trekked over to Rare Breeds as part of our term 4 topic. We met the animals (including the gorgeous 1-week old piglets!) and made our own plant pots to grow daffodils in.
Week ending 20th January 2017
What exciting times in Year 3! Last week a mysterious capsule was found by the builders and Mr Playford. Inside was a letter from an explorer named Hugo Tuppence, as well as the story of when he found an abandoned Polar Bear. Barracudas and Cuttlefish have been so inspired we have decided to learn Hugo's story using Talk for Writing!
We also had a lot of fun creating human bar charts. As part of our maths learning, Year 3 looked at how to collect and interpret data. We thought this would be more exciting if we were the bars in the chart!
Week commencing: 21st November:
This week we had an amazing experience of listening to a real-life poet. Tony Peek visited our school and read us lots of his very funny poems. The children were in stiches and were engrossed in the rich language and rather funny poems.
