Year 3 have continued to work very hard this week. In English, we have started a new book called, ‘Fantastically great women who changed the world’ by Kate Pankhurst.
This week, we focussed on our first woman who changed the world called Rosa Parks, a black lady living in America. The children learnt all about how Rosa faced racism and segregation whilst growing up as a black child. We discovered that Rosa was arrested and fined for not giving up her seat on a bus for a white person and discussed how she fought for equality and civil rights for all black people. The children wrote all about Rosa’s life as part of our big write and we even had some children research another famous activist who fought for equal rights called Martin Luther King Jr. Below are Daisy’s, Amelia’s, Jordan’s and Lilly’s beautiful work demonstrating Year 3’s fantastic work ethic and motivation.
In History, we explored the Egyptian pyramids and discussed how they were built, why they were built, where they were built and who built them many years ago. We created our own fact pyramid to display our knowledge. Fleur, Matthew and Lilly clearly enjoyed this task!
On Thursday, the children thoroughly enjoyed our computing lesson all about coding and sequencing. The children had to sort code in order to give an angry bird instructions on how to work their way around a maze to capture a cheeky pig.
In RE, we have been looking at the liturgical year and focussed on ‘ordinary time’ of the Christian calendar. This week, we looked at a very special feast day which occurs during ordinary time, All Saints’ Feast Day. The children researched all about this special day and created wonderful posters.
