This week we have been making vegetable soup,linked to our topic 'Fighting Fit'. All of the children helped to prepare the ingredients and they had a great time peeling and chopping the vegetables.
Mrs Jones was then able to use her expertise in the kitchen to cook the soup for us.We hope many of you enjoyed sampling it!

In English we have been reading the Supertato storybooks. This inspired the children to create their own 'superhero vegetables' which they then used to write character descriptions. The children really enjoyed the activity and the Evil Pea's days are numbered!
The children will also have the opportunity to write their own vegetable themed stories which links to our topic this term of 'Fighting Fit'. What would your vegetable superhero be called? How would they beat the Evil Pea?

This term we have been looking at Settlements and the children had a great time building their own 'model village'. We recycled many everyday materials to make our models and we are very pleased with how well they turned out. 

Our 'model village' included a castle, school, houses and many other interesting buildings.

In Class 3 we have been using our 'Maths Eyes' to look for maths in real life contexts. We used photographs from the Tour de Yorkshire to inspire us. The children had some amazing ideas and they were able to identify maths linked to measuring distances, symmetry and counting.
Here are some of the children working together to identify maths questions linked to the Tour de Yorkshire. When looking at the Yorkshire Rose we discussed the lines of symmetry, use of pattern and the number of petals. The children showed how well they can cooperate and work as a team.

 

In Science, the children were set a challenge linked to the learning we have been doing in English. They had to design and make a shelter for one of the three little pigs. They had to use their knowledge of materials to make a shelter that would keep the little pig dry. The children had some amazing ideas and every group managed to make a shelter which was waterproof.
The children were only allowed a limited number of materials and there was also a time limit! Each group was able to combine the properties of different materials so that their shelter was strong enough to stand up, but that it was also able to protect the little pig from a sudden downpour. Well done Class 3 on building new homes for the little pigs!

The children enjoyed using Beebot to perform simple instructions. They were able to use positional direction to navigate the Beebots around a Treasure map. We had great fun!
The children had to cooperate to ensure that the Beebots headed in the right direction. There were a couple of Beebots who went for a swim!
