Welcome to Classes 7 and 8
Christmas through the key hole
Year 3 had an awe inspiring visit to “Christmas Through The Keyhole” at the Redland Education centre. They took a peek through different key holes and then explored different scenes from the Christmas story to collect clues. This included a visit to Mary’s hut, a hilltop fireside with some shepherds, a royal tent with the 3 wise men, being counted in the Roman Census, Joseph’s carpentry shop and finally getting to meet Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus (yes a real baby!!).
The children have been getting creative and making decorated Christmas branches to hang in our school hall. The excitement is building .......!
Year 3 had a very interesting time at Bristol Museum. They took part in an art workshop which involved them carefully studying different paintings to find clues about the period in time and the person who has been painted. They then took the role of artist or model and roleplayed how they wanted to be painted in order to show their personalities.
After the workshop they children were very excited to explore the rocks and fossil section of the museum, particularly when they found an Ichthyosaur’s fossil and a whole section about Mary Anning.
Whilst learning about Diwali, The Festival of Light, we created our own Diya lamps to get rid of darkness!
Recently we excavated fossils, breaking open dinosaur eggs and we were very lucky to receive a visit.
Can you feel the force?
In Year 3 we have been exploring forces.
We have magnetised a paper clip, tested the friction of different surfaces and even made a paper clip fly!
Our superb scientist this term is Isaac Newton.
