Y3 Summer Term Curriculum Map

Ms. Crawford has been working on something very special with us for Laudato Si - here is a preview of our recreation of St. Francis Canticle using watercolours.

Snow Day research homework

 

Next week is Laudato Si week. We will be learning about climate change. Spend some time researching climate change and global warming. What is climate change? What causes it and what are the effects? Who is most affected by climate change around the world?

 

Create a colourful poster explaining climate change that you can share with your class next week.

 

Here are some useful websites;

Do you think we enjoyed our school trip to the Science Museum to watch a show about 'Forces and Magnets'?

Try this experiment at home with the following;
3 plastic wine glasses - fill 3/4s with water
1 placemat
3 vitamin tubes or similar
3 eggs (best to practice with hard boiled eggs or similar sized balls e.g. golf/ping pong balls, until you are confident enough to use raw eggs!)

GOOD LUCK!

 

BBC Radio 2 500 Words

We have signed up to one of the most successful short story writing competitions in the world!, BBC Radio 2's 500 WORDS. Budding young writers are asked to submit a 500-word story on any topic with the six winners having their story read out on air by a celebrity! The deadline for the story is Thursday 22nd February. The link below gives some ideas to help your child get their story written over half-term. Any child that would like to enter the competition should hand their story to their teacher on Monday 19th February, the first day back after half-term, to be checked over.

We worked in groups to create a wonderful retelling of the nativity through shadow puppets, combining Religion with our new knowledge of Science!

Mary, Mother of God

We are learning all about shadows, in particular, how they are formed and how they change size. First we experimented with hand puppets which was great fun!

It's Anti Bullying Week and we've been talking about online bullying. We read a really interesting story about Zeb, here is a little snippet; 

 

Zeb was born on the planet Dee. He was a Dee-lite. Dee was a bit like Earth apart from 2 things. Everything there was made of plasticine (including the people) and all the Dee-lites were completely blue. However, Zeb was different. He was blue but had a bright red nose! No one else in his family or street looked like this. As he grew older, he noticed that people would stare at him when he was walking down the road, point, laugh and say rude things...

 

We discussed this story in detail and shared our thoughts. By the end of the lesson we had come up with some really important slogans to help everyone feel loved and accepted.

 

"We are all special and we must be kind to each other. We are all unique"

- Jedrey & Ciaran.

"It doesn't matter what you look like, you are still special" - Zac & Anthony.

"Everyone has a talent and we are all special" - Kilian & Archie.

"Treat people how you would like to be treated, we can all be different things"

- Erica & Cara.

"It's not what you look like on the outside that matters, it is what is inside you" 

- Scarlett & Nancy.

We've been learning all about World War 1 this week. During Art, we used red and black crepe paper to make the Poppies, and then mixed yellow and blue paint to create wonderful shades of green for the stems.

Our recent trip to Fulham Palace for a Roman workshop was very informative and fun!

On arrival we were brought to an excavation site.
Roman coins were found here!
Hmm, are these Primary or Secondary artefacts?

All Saints Day

We work so hard we need brain breaks, and we love to dance!

The human skeleton is so interesting. We need it for protection, movement and support!

We are Mathematicians!

We are learning about the Christian family and Baptism. We sat in a big circle and shared our baby photos. Have we changed much?

We are Scientists! How much sugar is too much sugar? We examined sweet packets and drinks to find out and the results were shocking!

We have been cooking up a storm with Etain, preparing for our Roman feast!

Just like a Roman lyrics

Just like a Roman

We are learning this song for our Year 3 assembly!
Welcome to Year 3!

Lots of little Beings with a personality,

Each a little different and a little like me.

Lots of little Beings like stars in the sky,

Each one has a different little twinkle in its' eye.

Lots of little Beings like leaves on a tree,

Hanging all together in a Being family.

Lots of little Beings like peas in a pod,

Being all together, being loved by God.

 

Year 2 2016-2017

Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!

We are good listeners.

 

2015 - 2016 ARCHIVE

 

 

Every morning we start working straight away! There is always a challenge for us on the board. This is a "warm up" for the rest of the day! In one of these challenges we had to find out which was the odd one out and write the reason why. Now that we are in Year 1 we are able to write full sentences! 

International Week

 

Year 1 have been learning about the Philippines during International Week. We learnt about the flag, national costumes, national dishes, popular sports and other information about animals and wildlife.

We dressed up in traditional Filipino costumes and even made a popular 'merienda' (snack) called Turon.

We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs!

Laudato Si'

 

Last week we learnt about Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Si. In his letter, Pope Francis urged us all to do our part in caring for our 'Common Home'. Our mission in Year 1 was to help highlight the importance of saving the rainforests in our world. Deforestation is ruining God's creation and we pledge to help put an end to it! We designed 'Rainforest Wind Up Wonders' so that we always remember that the rainforest is home to many beautiful animals, plants and tribes.

 

St Francis' Canticle is what inspired Pope Francis to write Laudato Si. The canticle is full of imagery related to the creation of the earth. Year 1 created some artwork based on St Francis' Canticle using press printing. They were very colourful!

 

More photo's from our week of learning about what we can do to look after our 'Common Home'.

In Music we had the chance to play drums and experience Samba! It's a brazilian rythm...to warm us in these freezing days!   smiley

 

The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

 

We were very busy in the last weeks preparing our Tea Party in Kite Studios and this morning we baked the delicious jam tarts with Etain!

We had lots of fun in our Tea Party! Thank you all for coming!
