In our Science topic of “Animals, including humans” we have been learning about food, nutrition, skeletons and muscles.  Last week we tried learning some “posh” names of bones. In groups we put together large human skeletons and placed the names where we thought they should go.

As part of Science week we have been finding out about minibeasts.  We made our own grasshopper from Roald Dahl's "James and the Giant Peach".  We then made minibeasts come to life with the Augmentifyit app and answers quiz questions about insects and arachnids.  We hope to complete a minibeast hunt before the end of the week.

This week we have been holding a book week in school. Each teacher has chosen a different book and the children have been working in mixed classes. Today, on World Book Day, we welcomed illustrator and author Matt Buckingham to Year 3. He talked about his work and we had fun creating our own mythical creatures which he then drew for each group. We have also come to school dressed as characters from our favourite books.

Today we have been completing our magnetic games. We have each designed a game based on a wooden frame which can be played using magnets, eg a racing game or a fishing type game.  We have been busy measuring, sawing, sticking and decorating our games!

During anti-bullying week we have been thinking about the qualities that make us unique.  We each drew around our hand and and thought of five things to celebrate about ourselves which have been made into a class wreath.  We have also completed a jigsaw to show how we are all different but join together as a class.
