Today Year 3 had the fantastic opportunity to take part in a taster session with Grass Roots Football Academy and we loved it!
Year 3 loved their den building experience today! They worked fantastically in teams to build their own dens. They showed amazing respect and consideration for each other and should be proud of themselves!
Over the last few weeks in our art work, we have been designing and making our own block printing stamps. We have written our name in hieroglyphics and pressed in carefully into a polystyrene block. We then rolled ink over them and pressed them onto fabric. They have turned out fantastic and we had great fun doing them!
Year 3 had a fantastic time during the skipping workshop this week. We learnt a lot of new skills and some great games. We have been using what we have learnt during our playtimes since!
To finish our work on letter writing in Year 3, we have chosen famous people to write to. We have written our letters this week (just look at their concentration!) We will be writing our finish letters on Friday and then posting them! I wonder who will get a reply!
On the afternoon of 2nd December, all classes across school took part in our Christmas Door Decorating Afternoon. All the children (and staff!) had a fantastically festive afternoon, listening to Christmas songs and making decorations to display on their classroom doors. The end results look amazing and have definitely made Kexborough Primary look a little more festive!
A big thankyou to all the staff and children for their hard work and ambitious designs!
Apologies for the delay in posting!
Last Friday the Year 3 children helped Kexborough Primary celebrate Children in Need! Thankyou to all the children for dressing up and helping to raise lots of money. You all looked amazing!
This week, Year 3 children have started to look at a text called Everything You Need For A Treehouse by Carter Higgins and Emily Hughes.
As a hook for our learning, we introduced the book and discussed ideas for our dream treehouse. We watched a video clip showing the Top 10 Treehouses in the World. The children were amazed by some of the fantastic treehouse ideas and designs!
Yesterday afternoon, children were given a chance to discuss and design a treehouse. Their focus was to think about the size, shape and purpose of their treehouse; using the ideas from the book and video as inspiration. After designing their treehouses, the children were tasked with trying to construct them! I was extremely impressed with children’s resilience when 3D modelling. They used trial and error to construct their tree and house, thinking about suitable materials and ways of joining.
Here are some of the fantastic treehouses created by Year 3 children!
Children have been looking at the skills needed to write instructions in their writing lessons this week. Next week, they are going to write up their instructions for how they built their treehouses!
