Drama in the Year 3 classroom!

This week in English, our focus has been on play scripts. For our Big Write, the children will be writing a play script of a scene from The Witches. To develop their understanding of the scene, the children have been listening to the story of The Witches and watching a clip from the film. Today, the children had lots of fun acting out the scene. Ben did a very convincing job of acting out the witch who gets frazzled and Esther was a scary and very bossy Grand High Witch. Well done to everyone. I am very much looking forward to reading the children's play scripts next week.












Being kind to our minds

Our first week of the summer term began with a focus on the importance of looking after our minds as well as  our bodies. As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, children in Year 3 have been eating healthy fruits ('Fruity Friday'), running a mile around our field and taking part in a range of relaxation and work out activities.
Here are the children practising Belly Breathing with Sesame Street!












Lyricists



In Music this week, the children have been composing their own lyrics to a George Ezra song! Their song will then be performed on ukuleles at the forthcoming Prep Concert in May. A definite calendar date!









Drama, fun and learning

The children really enjoyed acting out the Greek myth of Pandora's Box in English this week. We even had traditional wedding music playing as the newly wedded Pandora and Epimetheus walked down the aisle together.

The children are already busy deciding who is going to play which role for our next Greek myth on Daedalus and Icarus!








Helping others

Enjoying ourselves singing the Comic Relief song and doing Karaoke and raising money for a very special cause at the same time ...













Have a relaxing and happy half-term break



Here's a lovely end of the term photograph of Year 3 children standing beneath the Friendship display. The children have really given of their best this week doing assessments in Mathematics and English.

Have a happy half-term with lots of rest and fun!

Construction Club


Every Friday lunch time, Construction Club meets and the children are set a construction challenge. This week's was to make a vehicle from recycled materials which can move but is powered only by the air from a balloon! Groups planned and designed their vehicles and started constructing them. Children will complete the challenge next week.
Here are some of the Year 3 children tackling the challenges.
