Rock detectives!

This week we started our Archaeology topic, by investigating rocks. First, we generated questions about rocks. Next, we learnt about the different types of rocks and  different materials that are made from rocks. Then, we went on a rock hunt to find different materials in our environment made from rocks.

Active learners!

We discussed what it means to be an active learner. Year 3 came up with some brilliant ideas, such as

  • We ask questions
  • We investigate
  • We share our ideas
  • We use computers and books to conduct research
  • We use resources, such as dictionaries, number lines and words mats to help us
  • We work as a team
  • We choose the right challenge for us
  • We challenge ourselves
  • We support and encourage each other.

We then had a treasure hunt, to find where all of the resources are in our new classroom.

We love reading!

Over the summer holidays, we wrote a review about a book we really enjoyed reading! Last week, we shared our book reviews with our friends and explained what the book is about, who the main characters are and why we thought they should read the book too! 20150904_094418 20150904_094446 20150904_094502 20150904_094509 20150904_094522 20150904_094530 20150904_094604 20150904_094610 20150904_094624 20150904_094640 20150904_094747 20150904_095116 20150904_095221

A fantastic first day!!

We had a great first day in Year 3! We spent the morning sharing all of the exciting things we did over the summer holidays. Next, we created posters, showing all of our favourite activities and hobbies. In the afternoon, we were lucky enough to try out lots of different instruments. 20150903_112807 20150903_112814 20150903_112845 20150903_112904 20150903_112909 20150903_115054 20150903_132139 20150903_132151 20150903_135637 20150903_135647 20150903_135659 20150903_135713 20150903_135738 20150903_135755 20150903_135823 20150903_135844 20150903_135917 20150903_135927 20150903_135952 20150903_140005 20150903_140006 20150903_140029 20150903_140040 20150903_140046 20150903_140055 20150903_140107 20150903_140113 20150903_140114 20150903_140131 20150903_140158 20150903_140202 20150903_140214 20150903_140219 20150903_140303 20150903_140325 20150903_140357 20150903_140403 20150903_140418 20150903_140503 20150903_140509 20150903_140529 20150903_140534 20150903_140541 20150903_140553 20150903_140557 20150903_140815 20150903_140828 20150903_140832 20150903_140837 20150903_140849 20150903_140900 20150903_140951 20150903_141001 20150903_141033 20150903_141102 20150903_141113 20150903_141124 20150903_141134 20150903_141331 20150903_141350 20150903_141354 20150903_141409 20150903_141421 20150903_141447 20150903_141541 20150903_141555 20150903_141635 20150903_141719 20150903_141724 20150903_141730
