    Welcome to Class 3/4 2011/12!


    Autumn Term 2011

    This term we've started learning about the Romans. The children have designed and made mosaics, used the laptops to find out the extent of the Roman Empire, created dictionaries of Roman words and enjoyed listening to Roman myths. We still have lots to learn after half term!


    In Science we have been studying 'moving and growing'; in particular the functions of skeletons and the properties of bones. The children have enjoyed drawing what they thought was under their skin and attempting to identify a number of bones.



    In maths we've looked at some calculation and number work, as well as 3D shapes. Everyone made a 3D shape using art straws.




    Swimming is well underway now and the class have also really enjoyed the games the MSR sports coaches have introduced them to.


    During golden time, the dressing up cupboard and lego have proved eternally popular. As a key stage we are introducing a variety of weekly enrichment activities for small groups of children during the last hour of the school week.



    Spring Term

    This term our topic is the Vikings. The children have been looking at where the Vikings came from and where they settled and have used clay to make pots and jewellery.


    Year 3 are attending the NSC each week for one of their PE sessions and are preparing for a tennis competition later in the term.


    Our class has just taken part in the RSPB Big Schools' Birdwatch, part of their annual Big Garden Birdwatch survey to identify changes in the populations of birds.

    We turned the classroom into a hide and the children observed and counted birds on the feeders outside the classroom, which needed filling 3 times during the school day to keep the local crows and starlings satisfied! Our results will then be submitted to the RSPB via their website.


    Other activities included making bird snappers, which the children found a little tricky, but they were very pleased with the end product!




    We have been to the House of Manannan! We spent the morning doing three workshops: weaving on individual looms, spinning Loughtan and other wools by hand and then collectively creating a small mat and making some simple braids and jewellery.

    After lunch we were free to explore the rest of the museum: the children particularly enjoyed seeing the Odin's Raven, the kipper factory and steering the Steam Packet ship !

    I loved the birdwatching. It was fun! Thank you Mrs Burton and Mrs Dunlop. On the tree outside my house, there are magpies building a nest.

    Great Emily - perhaps you might be able to take some 'photos of your magpies? We'll do more birdwatching during the rest of the year and see if we notice any differences in what birds we see as the seasons change.. You are welcome to borrow the RSPB magazines in the classroom too. Maybe we could start a lunchtime ornithological club!
