Enrichment Week for the Queen’s Jubilee 2022
Hazel Class joined with Ash Class to find out about Elizabeth I. We painted pictures, cooked, acted, sewed, danced and found out lots of historical facts.
Sports Day 2022
Hazel Class showed off all their skills during Sports Day this year.
We all completed an obstacle race : tennis skills, football skills, jumping and throwing.
We ran a team relay race and finally sprint races.
Everyone supported their teams and each other as they watched and cheered.
Well done everyone!
Outdoor Learning Day 2022
Hazel Class are learning about plants. We have found out the names of the different parts of flowering plants. During Outdoor Learning Day, we looked at the different plants growing around the school.
Our challenge was to draw a flowering plant and a tree. We then had to think about the differences between them.
We looked carefully at some lily flowers. We could clearly see all the parts of the flower that we have been learning about.
We are learning about how water is transported through the plant to keep it alive.
We observed plants carefully to identify the different parts of the flower.
We have linked our learning to our rainforest topic.
We planted some seeds so that we can watch them grow.
We are starting to learn about what each part of the flower does to help it grow, survive and produce seeds.
We went outside to check how our plants are growing
Some of the plants have not grown very much since we planted them as it has not rained very often recently.
Some flowers we saw look very different to others.
We had to crack a code to calculate the values of our names
Then we had to put ourselves in order according to our name total…..we were surprised that some shorter names had high values.
We did a shopping activity , and had to find the prices for various products at different supermarkets
…..then work out how to pay for the items using coins.
We played a game using dice to create our own sequence of movements . It was fun trying to remember all the moves as we added more.
Active Maths Day 2022
We had a great start to the term with our Active Maths Day.
Throughout the day we used our calculating skills to work out different problems and create sequences.
Welcome back to the Summer Term in Hazel Class.
We are really looking forward to finding out about plants and the rainforests this half term and then exploring what is happening to our oceans and seas.
The Romans in Hazel Class
This week we rounded off our Roman topic by battling using our home-made shields.
We tried out various formations ,the Testudo and the Wedge where we had to work together to defend ourselves. We decided these were better than working individually and they made us feel much safer.
Working individually was not as effective as the formations we tried.
Marching together helped us move the attackers back
Forming the Tesdudo made us feel much safer.
Accession Day in Hazel Class
Look at all the amazing crowns and costumes we wore this week to celebrate the Queen's accession to the throne 70 years ago.
We read all about when she found out she had become Queen and thought about how that must have felt.
We also looked at pictures and clips from the Coronation.
During the afternoon we looked at pictures of the Queen's family and how it has grown. We thought about who will be Kings or Queens in the future.
Safer Internet Day 2022
Here are a few of the posters we made to make people aware of
Safer Internet Day.
They remind us to be respectful online when we are playing games, communicating with people and using online devices.
Science Week in Hazel Class
This week we have been exploring Forces and Magnets in Science.
We have completed many practical investigations, learned lots of scientific vocabulary and language as well as presenting our work to other classes at the Science Fair!
We had lots of fun and had some surprising results to our investigations.
Take a look through some of the photos we took of our week.
In Science week we explored magnet forces.
We found out that they even attracted objects through the table!
We investigated forces and how different surfaces affected rolling objects down a slope. We changed other variables such as the type of ball.
We tried changing the gradient of the slope, the surface on the slope and different types of car.
We tried more surfaces outside, but they were not smooth and the vehicles slowed down.
Welcome to Hazel Class 2021
It is lovely to be back with all the children in Year 3.
We have started the term sampling some of the new things we will be learning this year. We enjoyed our first French lesson and also learning about light and shadows in Science.
The children have lots of great ideas about how they will work together this year to make our classroom a happy, safe and good working environment.
Everyone is thinking about how they will improve their skills and I am looking forward to working with Hazel Class on all the exciting topics we have in Year 3.
We measured each other and explored the vocabulary we use to compare size.
In PE we used directional language to guide each other around and to different points on a grid
During Maths week we explored position and direction. We gave each other instructions to move pieces around a board .
We found out about the positions of the planets in relation to the sun and used comparative language.
During Science day we found out about 5he different features of rocks by making observations and carrying out simple experiments.
We looked for more information in non-fiction books
We painted pictures to represent the layers of the Earth and the different types of rock. Later we added texture using chalks and pastels.
We found out about different types of rock using sweets! As we heated them with our hands and applied pressure they squashed together.
As we continued to heat and apply more pressure, they blended together to represent metamorphic rock.
