This week we have spent lots of time looking at vocabulary, specifically adjectives. In year 3 we have lots of ideas and can use adjectives very well in sentences but sometimes we use the same ones over and over. We have found so many fantastic alternatives to improve our writing!
Moving forward with our natural disasters topic we have investigated plate tectonics, how they fit together and how they move. This movement we now know causes Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tsunamis.
What is a force?
How many different ways can you move a ball?
Our models of the Earth and its layers have come out brilliantly.
Great Geography lesson, lots of hands on learning and lots fun.
On our first day we read the story The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. The story showed us that by changing our thoughts and our words we can change the way that we see ourselves, the world and our challenges. Instead of saying we aren't good at something or we cannot do something, we will think about ways that we can learn or improve.
We also created some beautiful Dot artwork for our display.
What a fantastic start to the new school year we have had in 3J!
All of the children have settled in brilliantly and are taking on their new role as juniors very well. It seems that lots of you have had great summers and are now ready for the challenges year 3 has for you. I am looking forward to seeing you all grow over the year.
Over the last few days we have been looking at artist Gustav Klimt, admiring his artwork and recreating some of the shapes, lines and colours he used in his most famous pieces. All of this investigating gave us inspiration to make a piece of art work to jazz up our window space.
We thought about the colours and shapes Klimt used for his artwork and used these to create an inspired window display.
I am so pleased with how it looks, they have come out super! Each one fabulously different.
