Year 3 - Magpie - Chocolate

In Year 3 we are learning all about chocolate this half term! To launch our topic, we have been making chocolate lollies and designing the packaging for them. We have thought carefully too about how the chocolate changes state when it is being turned into a lolly. As well as this, we have written a set of instructions explaining the different steps we completed. The children have had so much fun making their creations and it has been a fabulous way to start Year 3!

Year 3 - Magpie - Barley Hall and the Minster Trip

Magpie class have had a fantastic trip to Barley Hall this week learning all about the terrific Tudors! We learned how the rich individuals would show how wealthy they were by having tiles on their floor and inviting guests to large banquets. We also learned about the different methods of treating poorly patients in Tudor times- we were all shocked at how bizarre some of their thoughts and treatments were! Finally we were able to look round the fantastic Minster and we discovered the reasons for it needing several refurbishments. We were able to try on various outfits and looked at different Roman artefacts. Our favourite part was looking underneath the glass floor where we could see the remains of a Roman column!

Year 3 - Magpie - Handwriting Competition

Recently, in Class Magpie there has been an intense competition running. The competition was aimed at the children improving their handwriting and showing progress. The children have been trying so hard to win the incredible prizes on offer and they have become very competitive! The winners were Lillyanne, Harry, Ava and Jimmy. Well done super handwriting stars!
We had a fun, full-packed day on World Culture Day! To begin with, we shared our outfits- Miss Kay was very impressed at the effort we had all gone to! We then looked at a Spanish artist, Picasso, and his famous faces and created our own with oil pastels. Following this, we had an African drumming session and the opportunity to do some Spanish dancing!

Year 3 - Magpie - Circuits

This week we have been learning all about electricity! We have learnt what the different symbols in a circuit represent and what is needed to make a circuit work. Josh and Layla were the first pair to make a working circuit with a motor in!
Last week we created our clay dragons for St George's day! We had so much fun making and painting them! Here are pictures of us holding our dragons.

Year 3 - Magpie - Colour Wheel

This week Magpies have been experimenting with paint and learning all about the primary and secondary colours. The children were fascinated at how the colours could vary in shade and tone, depending on how much of each you added! We are using our new knowledge to paint our clay dragons that we have been making.

Year 3 - Magpie - Reading

Magpie have really been taking advantage of the glorious sunshine we have had recently! On several occasions, we have read outside this week and have absolutely loved it! We have shared our reading books with our friends and have read to each other too.

Year 3 - Woodpeckers - World Book Day!

We had such a fun day celebrating World Book Day on Monday! We got to dress up as our favourite characters and Miss Miller from reception visited us and read us a story!

Year 3 - Woodpecker - Premier Sport

We had so much fun on Monday with Mr Harrison! We got to do some boxing and learnt many cool things about the sport! We even got to put on the boxing gloves and practice some moves!

Year 3 - Woodpecker - Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

We had so much fun at Yorkshire Wildlife Park! Even in the snow, we managed to see lots of animals, such as polar bears, lions and camels. We got the chance to hold cockroaches and even stroke a snake! We were so brave, Miss Tutill couldn’t even stroke it because she was scared! Overall, it was a fantastic day and Miss Tutill was really proud of how well we represented the school!
