Y3 had a fabulous first day! We’ve been reading The Colour Monster - a book all about a monster confused with his emotions. We then explored our different emotions and what they make us feel. We made our own colour monster to put into our class book for our reflection corner.
We’ve been exploring children’s rights and discussing what our lives would be like if these were taken away. The children came up with some fantastic ideas.
We’ve had some very exciting news in year 3. We had a visit from a member from the secret services who has dropped off our new book. Apparently this book has a secret message about how to make the world a better place but we haven’t worked it out yet. Our first mission was to explore the characters and their qualities.
Continuing with our book just like the colours we’ve been exploring our differences today and celebrating them with pride. We’ve done role play and made statements about what makes us different. The children’s attitudes towards each other being different but loved by God was exceptional. We are proud to be unique because we know God loves us all the same.
Today we’ve carried on with our new book. We’ve been debating about which colour is the best colour red, blue or yellow. We’ve come up with some amazing arguments until we realised that actually the world would not function without all of the colours together. I wonder what the hidden meaning of the book is..... hmm we will continue to explore this over the next few weeks.
Year 3 have been celebrating our differences. We spent time drawing our partners and then wrote down what made them special and what we loved about them. We then shared these with each other they have great attitudes to each other’s uniqueness.
We have been exploring, tasting and cooking Mediterranean cuisines.
Celebrating Our Lady’s Birthday yesterday through an outdoor class collective worship. The children’s reflection was absolutely beautiful.
Our forest school fun.
Reading our class novel ‘Mr Stink’ outside.
Dyslexia Awareness Week
We’ve been learning about dyslexia and what our school does to ensure all children feel included in their learning.
We’ve been exploring music from around the world and training our vocal chords to make different tones and sounds. We firstly did this with our faces.
