Hazel Class - Year 3

First day back and all settled into our new Y3 classroom.
Take a look at our learning
English- Creakers  by Tom Fletcher. Miss Ridgers reads to us everyday . We love listening to the story.  Term 2 - we  read Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura.  Term 3 we are going to be reading Belonging by Jennie Baker. This book  is all about looking through the window of a house, a city street gradually becomes a place to call home as the inhabitants begin to rescue their street by planting grass and trees in the empty spaces. Year by year, everything begins to blossom... Belonging explores the re-greening of the city and the role of community, the empowerment of people and the significance of children, family and neighbourhood in changing the urban environment for the better.
Term 4 we will be reading Lights on Cotton Rock . 
Science.  Y3 had a fun and practical learning for their science today. The children enjoyed making their own fossils and then being palaeontologists by trying to guess the animals that their peers had made.
Maths: The children today enjoyed learning about time practically. Some children had to make a clock using their understanding of time so far, with two children acting as the minute and hour hands. The children had lots of fun and enjoyed the challenge of finding quarter past, half past and quarter to the hour. 
PSHE and Wellbeing: 
The Year 3 children enjoyed recognising and labelling different emotions. The children were encouraged to use both adventurous vocabulary and to understand the variation in our feelings. 

This term children we are developing our  knowledge of Hinduism whilst answering the following question -

Would celebrating Divali at home and in the community bring a feeling of belonging to a Hindu child?

This week we have been learning about Rangoli patterns. 
The children in Hazel Class have really enjoyed applying their mass knowledge with our Easter baking activity. The children took it in turns to weigh the different ingredients and read the scales to check for accuracy. The children were also using their understanding of instructions to help them follow the recipe and collectively, as a team, take each step and if the smell is anything to go by, the children have made some delicious biscuits.
Keep up to date with news from around the world.
In Year 3 I will learn...
