In PSHE we have been learning about taking responsibility for ourselves and each other. We talked about what we are responsible for in our homes and at school. Then we went outside and took responsibility for our partner as we led them through the obstacles, with a blindfold! We talked about how we felt when we were responsible for them. Some of us felt nervous, others excited.
We have been creating our own little plays to retell the Christmas story. We used our Christian values of friendship and perseverance to work in our groups to create the plays, and then courage to show them in front of the year group!
Year 3 have been investigating which material makes the most effective wrapper for chocolate. We wrapped chocolate in three types of material and put them in a tin with some smelly onion for 3 days. Which wrapper would keep the chocolate smelling delicious?
We made our predictions and wrapped the chocolate!
We had fantastic weather again for our year 3 forest school sessions. Linking to our topic on animal habitats, the children in poplar class enjoyed an insect hunt in our school grounds. We used magnifying glasses to safely observe our findings. Well done poplar class!
This week we have been finding out about the religion Hinduism. We started off by learning about Rakhi bracelets. We designed our own and chose who we would give it to.
Sandhya shared many artefacts and Hindu objects with us. We had the opportunity to ask lots of questions and join in with a Puja- worship.
