World Book Day : March 2024

What a wonderful effort made by all the children to celebrate World Book Day! Where's Wallly?

 


 

 

 

Share a Story 

For World Book Day, we used all the oracy skills we have developed over the last few lessons such as expression, eye contact and gestures to become Storytellers and share a story with Year 4.

We had a wonderful time telling Year 4 the story of Blodin the Beast and listening to their Ride of Passage stories.

 

 

Rocktopus

Year 3 had a fantastic morning creating our own song for the 2 times table. You will be able to watch the video online later this week as the children will be bringing home an access code. In the meantime, have a look at the pictures and video so far.

Christmas!

The children have had a brilliant time over the past few days creating a calendar, Christmas bauble and a Christmas card. In class this morning, we have been getting in the Christmas spirit this morning with our very own photo booth, musical statues, 'hoop a reindeer' and some singing! Mrs Rendell and Mrs Wells wish all of the children and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2024 :)

  

Stone Age Day

Year 3 immersed themselves in a Stone Age Day where they:

  • made a campfire and drank hot chocolate
  • used flints
  • made shelters
  • made paintings from natural products
  • made clay pots

 

 

Children in Need

It was lovely to see the children in their spots to raise money for Children in Need! Thank you all!

 

 

Rocks and Fossils Workshop

Today, Sharon from Somerset Heritage and Learning came to share her knowledge on rocks and fossils. We started our session by watching a video about how fossils are made and then moved on to three different activities. The first activity was working with Sharon to identify different rocks and using magnifying glasses to see what small particles the rocks were made up of. The second activity was a game of rock bingo, and the third activity was rubbing fossils to make our very own prints. We then had to identify what type of fossil we had been given. There were lots of opportunities to walk around the room and read the information that Sharon had brought out as well. What an exciting morning we had learning more about rocks and fossils.

 

 

Cheddar Caves Visit

Take a look at all the photos from today's super visit to Cheddar caves and museum of prehistory. We had a great guided tour of Gough's Cave and an immersive experience in the Dream Hunter's Cave which was a bit scary with wolves and bears projected onto the walls around us. The museum of prehistory showed us all about life in Stone Age times and the Beyond The View film show gave us more details about the history of Cheddar Gorge.  

 

 

Year 3 Forest School Day

Jay Class had a fantastic day of outdoor learning where we had the opportunity to create wands, build dens, make tree faces from clay and use a range of natural materials to make Mandala art. We showed perseverance and great team working skills.

Science - Light

Year 3 have been investigating which materials are most visible in the dark and which materials reflect well.

 

 

Sports Week : June 2023

During this week, Year 3 have had the opportunity to participate in a huge range of events including go-karting, relays, football gold, archery and orienteering. We enjoyed going offsite to Bridgwater College and working in different teams across our year group!

 

 Year 3 Puxton Park

We had a fantastic day in the sunshine learning about animals to support our work in Science. We had the opportunity to be 'bees' and find the flowers they use to collect nectar and make honey. Then we fed the meerkats with mealworms and found out more about how they live as a mob. Some of us were then very brave and got to touch a snake, tenrec, millipede and lizard while we found out more about their diets and skeletons.  

 

 

Year 3 and Year 6 PE : 26th April 2023

On Wednesday 26th April, Year 3 and Year 6 enjoyed a PE session together. Year 6 planned seven different activities for the Year 3's to take part in and they enjoyed displaying some of their leadership skills and qualities. 

It was a pleasure to witness such fantastic behaviour from both year groups: all children gave all activities their best effort and enjoyed the afternoon together.

Well done everyone! 

 

 

World Maths Day 2023

Jay class had a fun morning taking on the 'How Close to 100' maths challenge to celebrate World Maths Day 2023. We had to roll two dice, and using the numbers rolled, make an array on a 100 grid. We took it in turns; rolling the dice and making arrays. The goal was to see how full we could get our 100 grids. 

 

 

Battle of Sedgemoor Wow Starter for Year 3 : February 2023

Year 3 had a visit from a ‘doctor’ who helped during the Battle of Sedgemoor that took place in Westonzoyland on 6th July during 1685. We learnt so much about how the rebels led by the Duke of Monmouth tried to overthrow King James II.
