Welcome to Class 3, where everyone works hard to achieve their potential within an environment of mutual respect. We are a great team and we strive to ensure that our class is a safe and happy place for everyone.
Today we used chalk and black card to create the appearance of movement in a fairground ride.The blocks of colour show where the ride is stationary. The curved lines give the sense of movement.
Which is your favourite?
These rides will be on display after the Leaver's Showcase Assembly on Thursday 9th July.
This week the children have worked in pairs to design and build a moving fairground ride as part of their Challenge Passport. Each ride uses a working electrical circuit and must be reliably controlled by a switch. The design criteria stated that the rides should all link to our work on endangered species. These photos give a hint of what you can expect to see in Class 3 on Thursday 9th July.
Hooray- SATs are done and dusted!! Well done everybody, I am so proud of you all!
Everyone has worked so hard throughout the year and you all had a fantastic attitude this week. Now we just have to wait..........
What a fantastic day we all had a Drayton Manor!
In our literacy lessons, we have been considering the question: Should animals be kept in zoos or not? By visiting the zoo at the park, we were able to discover what is done to ensure the animals have a happy and enriched life in the zoo. The children met with a zoo keeper and experienced caring for a "Hissing Cockroach."
Mormhna said, "It was really fun because you got to look at all the different animals, the chimpanzee was the best, especially when he threw bark at us to watch us running away!!"
Poppy thought, " It was a fantastic day out because we got to experience how the different animals were cared for at the zoo. The Black Leopard is given scented sacs to scratch and rub against for enrichment."
Daaynaal explains, " Enrichment means the leopard could mark his territory, just like he would in the wild and the gibbon was allowed to find its own treats hidden in a colourful egg box. This was a puzzle for him to solve. This tries to mimic the natural habitat."
Recipe For a Healthy Plant
In our science lessons, we were set a challenge to produce a poster that shows the functions of the parts of a flowering plant and to explain everything a plant needs to allow healthy growth and reproduction.
We worked closely in teams of four, each of us with a specific role, under the guidance of our team leader.
We think our posters are brilliant!
