Thank you year 3 for an absolutely fantastic residential. We were all so impressed by the children's attitudes and super behaviour as always. They embraced all the opportunities and were incredibly independent and grown up. I hope they had lots of stories to tell you. Here is a lot of photos which were taken. They were mostly taken by the children. Sorry for all the mud! 

World Book Day in Year 3

KiVa Year 3

Date: 25th Oct 2019 @ 2:20pm

We had our second lesson about KiVa today. We built on our learning from the previous lesson of safe and unsafe and learnt today about emotions. We talked about all the different emotions our bodies can feel and that we can sometimes feel different emotions soon after each other. Emotions are completely normal and we need to learn to understand our emotions to predict and sometimes control our behaviour.  Our voices also change as does our body language and face. The children shared times when they felt like that. 

Here is a link to the parent guide for KiVa which is an antibullying policy which has been introduced across the school.

We had a super gardening session yesterday with Mr Morris. We planted bulbs around the woodland. It will be so exciting to see the bluebells, snowdrops and daffodils growing and know that we have made a difference to the appearance of our school site. 

African Drumming

Date: 11th Oct 2019 @ 3:05pm

We had a super African drumming session today with Johnny. He brought along 30 drums from West Africa and we had a super time copying rhymings, passing around a beat and performing as a group with three different rhythms. Ask your child what the drum was made of!!

Move over Mr Spielberg

Thank hou to everyone who was able to join us for our Learn with Me. It was brilliant to have so many grown ups learning with us and seeing everything we’ve mastered so far in year 3. We hope it has given you an insight into activities which could be done at home and the expectations in year 3.

Litter Picking

Date: 22nd Mar 2019 @ 1:38pm

Our Geography topic at the moment is Litter in Holmes Chapel. This is a great company chance for us to learn about waste and recycling, and also the local area. On Friday morning, we went on a litter pick around the local area to see what types of litter we could find. We were also then able to help clean up our community.

Magic Magnets

Date: 20th Mar 2019 @ 2:24pm

Year 3 have been learning about forces and magnets in science. Today we explored how magnets have a magnetic field which produces a pulling field and attracts objects which are made from certain materials. We also learnt that magnets have poles. The same poles repel but opposite poles attract. 

We investigated which materials in the classroom are magnetic and attrracted to the magnet. We then took pictures using the iPads and use app called PicCollage to make a collage of all the photos!

World Book Day

Date: 7th Mar 2019 @ 10:28am

What amazing jars! For World Book Day, the children were asked to bring a jar with clues in about a story and they are wonderful. We were so impressed at the variety and all the different stories which were crammed into jars! Well done, everyone!!

We are loving the new iPads! So far, we have used them for Computing, French and a PSHE lesson. We have all been so focused by our work and have worked so quietly. We need to concentrate more than usual to understand the iPads! It’s amazing that we can work anywhere in the classroom. 

The children have learnt so much in such a short period of time like how to mirror to the Apple TV, how to close apps, how to write a document and much more. All the adults are so impressed. We can’t wait for more learning opportunities. 

Biscuit Henge

Date: 16th Oct 2018 @ 8:57am

As part of our learning abou the Stone Age, year 3 have made a model of Stonehenge out of biscuits! We compared the sizes of the stones and investigated the separate stages of construction. 

All children are very enthusiastic about Stonehenge and extremely puzzled about how the stone got to Stonehenge, all the way from South Wales. 

Healthy Hermitage - year 3

Date: 14th Sep 2018 @ 1:27pm

What a start to Healthy Hermitage!

We enjoyed a super assembly, following some fun routines to get our hearts beating. After that, we were kitted out with our hoodies. We found it really exciting!

As our additonal exercise, we practised skipping with ropes and we did some dancing. Even the teachers and Mrs Ross joined in!

Exploring shadows

Date: 13th Sep 2018 @ 8:49am

In science, we have been learning about light and dark. We found out that dark is when there is no light. Sometimes, something will block the light. This causes a shadow. 

We had a great time making shadows puppets and using them to make shadows on the interactive whiteboard. 

Making Photo Frames

Date: 11th Jul 2018 @ 3:10pm

In year 3, we are preparing to make photo frames. We have been busy trying to make stands to help our photo frames stand up. Our stands needed to move forward and backwards and allow our frames to be portrait and landscape. Miss Smith was so impressed with how resilient we were and how quickly we made working stands!

Farm Visit - Year 3

Date: 3rd Jul 2018 @ 3:24pm

What a fabulous day! We have all had so much fun meeting the animals, learning about their diets, habitats and lifestyle. 

The farm brought sheep, pygmy goats, a miniature horse, two pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, three hens, a ferret and a corn snake! What a selection!

We all loved eating our picnic on the field.

Defimitely a day to remember. 

Learn with Me - Year 3

Date: 26th Jun 2018 @ 2:52pm

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our English Learn with Me. It was so fantastic to see you all learning with your children. The children clearly enjoyed having lots of adults with us as well! 

We hope this has given you a further insight into the learning which goes on in school and how to support your child at home. 

Glockenspiel fun

Date: 22nd May 2018 @ 11:37am

The children have loved the wooden glockenspiel here at Tattenhall. Some children have chosen to compose and perform their own piece of music. Very impressive. 

Sport Relief

Date: 20th Mar 2018 @ 9:20am

Every morning, year 3 have been busy adding up the minutes of exercise done so far. We are amazed at how active everybody has been! Thank you for the support, we are so close to our target!

World Book Day

Date: 1st Mar 2018 @ 4:16pm

We have had a super day celebrating World Book Day. Year 3 produced an exceptional display of potatoes from a variety of books. We had everything from Paddington Bear to Albus Dumbledore and even the Very Hungry Caterpillar who thankfully decided not to eat the other potatoes! 

Year 3 were treated to three mystery readers who each read a very different book but did superb voices for the characters! Thank you all for giving up your time for this.

In the afternoon, we shared books with year 5s and had a great time listening to them read and reading to them. Thank you, year 5, you were super!

Christmas Cakes!

Date: 12th Dec 2017 @ 10:51am

This morning we have made our Christmas cakes. We weighed the ingredients in maths on Monday so we were ready to go. We even made a Christmas whisk as we stirred the mixture. 

Anti-bullying day!

Date: 1st Dec 2017 @ 1:51pm

We had a lovely day learning all about bullying and what anti-bullying means. We wore odd socks to remind us that we are all equal but all different. We had a workshop in the afternoon with a theatre group where we learnt about different types of bullying and how we can help.
