Elm- Year 3
Mrs R Chamberlain
Mrs J Emery
Mr P Tomley
Today, in year Three we were scientists whilst exploring our topic of ‘Rocks and Soils’. Our first task was to imagine that we were archaeologists by using tools and images to discover the remains of Stone Age animals (which our friends had set up).
Our second task was to imagine that we were geologists by testing out different soil samples collected from around the school grounds.
Year Three have been very excited this week as we have began our journey in learning French. First we looked at where France is and some of the famous cities which can be found here. We then learnt how to say ' How are you?' ( Ca va) and then responded with either I'm feeling good ( Ca Va bien) or not too good ( ca va mal). We are practising this every day whilst answering the register.
We have learnt numbers in French too.
Elm class had the pleasure of Ashton visiting us today ( our musicat) where we took part in many musical games, listened to brass instruments playing a famous song called Fanfare of the Common Man and then we had an extra special treat of being able to hear Ashton playing Frozen and Shotgun.

Elm have been busy making bread, where they were able to accurately weigh and measure the correct ingredients with a partner. We had lots of fun kneading, twisting and rolling the dough before leaving them enough time to double in size before baking.
As part of our Easter celebrations, we have made our Easter cards. Here we focussed on our Design and Technology objectives of creating our own designs, thinking about the materials and tools required and then using our knowledge to join, cut and alter ordinary materials such as felt and paper.
