Year 3 - Woodpecker

Year 3's Got Talent 

Year 3's Talent Show did not disappoint! We were so impressed with the standard of the acts which performed. A huge well done to all the children who took part and put in so much effort preparing. It was lovely to see the other children encouraging and supporting them. Within PHSE, we are learning about what makes us special and unique and today definitely showed that!  Thank you to the parents who clearly had spent time supporting the children to be ready for their showcase. It was a wonderful afternoon of talent!

 

CAD Character Visit - March 2024

Yesterday, we were visited by Doctor Henry Goodfellow who was a doctor at the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685! Doctor Goodfellow taught us all about the events leading up to the battle and how the Duke of Monmouth travelled across the South West gathering his followers. 

Doctor Goodfellow helped us to imagine what the Battle would have been like and we even had a go at acting it out. 

It was a fantastic morning of learning with lots of laughter and fun. 

 

World Book Day - March 2024

Woodpecker Class had a wonderful day celebrating World Book Day and sharing our story of Blodin the Beast with Year 4.

Rocktopus : March 2024

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 so far.

 

Christmas Fun!

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. Mrs Thompson and Mrs Lewis 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 - December 2023 

The children have had a fantastic day acting as though they were part of the Stone-Age era. They took part in lots of different activities including making Stone Age pots, making Stone-Age fruit stew, making cave paintings underneath their classroom tables, building shelters, making paint from natural materials, starting their own fires and even enjoying a hot chocolate and marshmallows! We are so impressed with how enthusiastic all of the children have been about today and hope they have enjoyed it as much as we have!

 

 

Children in Need!

The children looked fantastic today in their spotty accessories for children. Thank you so much for all of your kind donations. 

 

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 Trip

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 - November 2023

What a wonderful day we had! We developed our teamwork skills through building dens, wood carving wands, making clay tree faces and using natural resources to create Mandala art.

Year 3 Oracy Unit 

As part of their English unit (instructions) our Year 3's have made a brilliant start to this academic year using their oracy skills to explain to our Year 1's how to make a mask. The Year 1 children used great listening skills and the Year 3's used clear, sequential instructions in order for the Year 1's to successfully make their masks. Well done Year 1 and Year 3.

 

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! 

 

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.
