Y3 went to Acorn Farm today as part of their geography agriculture topic. It was great to pet the animals and to find out how they are reared before reaching our shops. Thank you to our informative guides - the children had a fantastic trip and now hope to visit with their families!
This term the children have been learning about Adventure stories. They read The Tunnel by Anthony Browne and discussed Rose’s dilemma about whether she should follow her brother through the tunnel. They then took it in turns to role play Rose and walk down conscience alley were the rest of the class tried to convince her to either go down the tunnel or leave her brother.
As a class it was decided that Rose would not go down the tunnel so the children wrote notes to Jack, her brother, explaining why.
Cooper the therapy dog popped in today to say hello as it was his last day at Emmaus. The children all enjoyed meeting him and were so impressed with his tricks.
In swimming this week, we have been learning about how to be safe at the beach. We looked at the different types of flags you would find there, and which ones meant that you could and couldn’t swim.
We also talked about the special SAFE rules we should follow in outside water.
Spot - spot the dangers
Advice - take advice
Friend- always go with a friend
Emergency - call for help in an emergency
We had so much fun learning about water safety and even swam in our pyjamas to see what it would be like if we fell in the water with our clothes on.
Year three have started their art topic with some revision of primary and secondary colours. Today they painted the six colours of this colour wheel using only red, blue and yellow.
Year three have started a new topic in English: Performance Poetry. The children have been working hard to improve their performances by including tone, character and actions. It has been wonderful to see them grow in confidence as they perform in front of their peers.
We were lucky to have some members of the Sharabi family visit us on Monday to introduce our new RE topic – Judaism with a focus on synagogues. It was great to heard first hand about worship in this holy building and to learn some of the Hebrew words to describe the things we would find there. Edden, Ben and Oz also told us that it will soon be Hanukkah and we celebrated this festival with some doughnuts!
Y3 have been learning about pulse, tempo, rhythm and pitch in music this half term. This week we used the glockenspiels and played as a class along with a backing track. We worked hard to keep the beat as we played together.
