Y3 MFL update

The Y3 children have been learning the basics of German with their teacher, Frau Griggs.

Rhymes and puppets are very useful in helping us to remember the new words and how to say them!


The Ancient Greeks

So we have come to the end of our wonderful topic all about the Ancient Greeks. We hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have, especially eating all of the wonderful Greek food! So it’s time to take off your togas, sit back and enjoy watching another of our fantastic learning journeys. Just click the link – Ancient Greeks

Ancient Greeks!


What would Tottinglee be like?

In Year Three we have come to the end of our Anglo-Saxon era!

We have become true historians, researching the past and finding out what life was like in Anglo-Saxon times. We even became Saxons ourselves at our Saxon sleepover. All of the teachers were exhausted and are obviously far too old, as we really struggled to stay awake until 3 am like some of the children!

We hope you enjoy our slide show where you will see for yourselves just how much we have enjoyed this topic.

Thanks Year Three!

Step back in time to 449!


Can you pull all the right strings to become a master puppeteer?

In Year Three we have reached the end of our ‘Puppets’ learning journey; please watch the Animoto below and so you can see everything we have been up to. We have seen some incredible projects from home, including puppet shows, puppets, puppet theatres and play scripts. These have positively impacted upon the children’s enthusiasm for this topic, as you will see in the pictures. The children’s creativity, imagination and determination is clear to see! Well done to all of you!

Puppets – Our Learning Journey


Year 3’s Stone Age Museum

Year 3 started the year with a topic all about Early Britons. We had great fun becoming Archaeologists, Cave Painters, Artists and Bakers.

We completed our topic by reflecting on all our hard work and creating a Stone Age museum exhibition to show off our findings and creations.

Take a look at the Animoto which shows the journey through our topic.

 


Roald Dahl Day!!

Yesterday was Roald Dahl Day. In Year Two and Year Three we decided to celebrate this author’s fantabulous work with a range of activities. We worked in our house groups and it was great to see the older children supporting the younger children. Both classes have really enjoyed themselves and I am sure you will be hearing all about it!!

Here are just a couple of examples of work from our morning.

We designed Prince Pondicherry a new palace made from sweets…

We designed and completed surveys to find out the favourite Roald Dahl books of children around school.


Y3 Puppet Topic ends in Style!

Y3 have had a brilliant time over the past few weeks with their puppet topic. Throughout the learning journey, the children have been working towards giving a puppet show performance for Y1 children. First they worked in groups to create storyboards, characters and write scripts. Then it was time to design and make the puppets. The children critiqued each other’s designs to make lots of improvements along the way, so that the finished puppets were the best they could be. Finally, it was time to put it all together and perform for the Y1 children, after rehearsing like mad!

“I really enjoyed the show. The puppets were very good and made me laugh” – Freddie Y1

Meanwhile in science, we have linked in the topic of light and shadow and looked at what happens to the shadows our puppets make when put in front of a light source. We thought about how we could change the shadows in different ways and how we could measure the changes like true scientists!

Homework around this topic has been brilliant, with many children bringing in amazing home made theatres or slideshows for us to watch. What a fantastic effort Y3!!

 


Badminton Competition Y 3-6

Yesterday, 15 of our children from years 3 – 6 took part in a badminton competition in which they competed against other schools. During the afternoon, there were many singles and doubles matches played. The children played fantastically and all felt that their badminton skills had improved by the end of the afternoon! They showed great attitudes and sportsman-ship and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon! Well done girls and boy!

 


Delectable Dancing

Last Monday, Years 2, 3, 4, and 5 took part in a wonderful dance performance for parents and carers. Each year group performed a dance which they had created with the help of professional dancer, Charlie Armitage. The children used their imaginations and knowledge to create movements and dances which were inspired by their topics.

The children put on a fantastic performance! Well done!

Here are some photographs from the afternoon:
