Eagle Owls had a fantastic sports day, well done to everyone involved! Here are a few pictures of the day's events!
Friday 26th May
Eagle Owls have been working really hard this term and below are some of the exciting things we have been doing.
We spent a few days exploring the Christian value of peace and what this meant to us and how we can find peace in ourselves and our community. We created poems, prayers and peace stones to help decorate the peace garden! We also spent time meditating and doing yoga to help us find peace; everyone had the chance to create their own yoga poses.
We finished our history and geography topic by going on a historic walk around Bury St Edmunds. We had the chance to go into Moyse's hall and have a look at the old maps and the Abbey Gate made out of lego. We finished our tour by taking a break in Abbey Gardens and sketching the Abbey Gate. When we returned to the classroom we had a go at making our own model Abbey Gates, they look fantastic!
Friday 28th April
Eagle Owls have had a brilliant start to their summer term!
In Maths we have been telling the time using both analogue and digital time. Also we have started to look at 24 hour time. At the bottom of this page there are links to some of the maths websites we use in class.
In English we have started to look at the beautiful illustrations in the book called 'Window' by Jeannie Baker and will write our own narratives over the next few weeks.
Our topic this term is Up Our Street, we are looking at local geography and the human and physical features. We have drawn maps of Grove Road and will continue to investigate the local area. If anyone has any interesting photos, books or information about the history of Bury St Edmunds we would love to share this with the class!
Everybody has been working really hard with their times tables and the times tables test is on a Thursday. As well as this we are becoming a lot more confident with our spellings and the spelling test is on a Friday. The year 3 and 4 word lists are attached near the bottom of this page.
We have P.E on Wednesday and Friday so please make sure children bring in the correct P.E kit. This term we will be exploring dance and athletics!
Homework will be given out on a Friday and due in Friday of the following week.
Friday 10th March
In maths this week we have been looking at finding fractions of amounts. We made up a song for the rule to help us - dividing by the denominator then times by the numerator! We have also been looking at tenths and converting these to decimals. We have been practicing counting in tenths and quarters and created our own fraction number lines.
In English this week we have been learning an African folktale called Mulenga and the cherries and have been practicing retelling this with actions! We have had also had fun pretending to be pineapple farmers and have written fantastic extended sentences using subordinate conjunctions!
Eagle owls have been very excited this week to start the Easter show rehearsals. In year 3 we will be doing the singing and dancing! Children will need black jogging bottoms or leggings and a black top to wear for the performances which are on Wednesday March 29th and Thursday Match 30th.
Please take a look at our amazing machine homework, the children have really enjoyed getting creative and have invented the most wonderful machines!
Friday 24th February
Eagle owls have had a very successful start to the new term! We have been sharing our wonderful machine inventions with some very detailed explanations. This week in English we have been looking at ways to improve our sentences. We have looked at putting commas in a sentence to add extra information and using prepositions to tell the reader where something is.
This week in maths we have been working on multiplication and been trying to challenge ourselves with larger multiplications. We have been using the grid method to help us which is attached below and also using the multiplication squares to help us.
We have started to think about our new topic which is Rwanda. We looked at strawberries and pineapples and used our inference skills to create geographical questions. We are looking at the differences between where strawberries are grown in England and where pineapples are grown in Rwanda. In the next few weeks we will research and answer all of these brilliant questions!
