Doves class is taught by Mr Jones. On our class page, alongside Class Dojo, you can find out what we've been up to, see our photos and find out about what we have coming up in the next few weeks! If you ever have any questions or would like to discuss something, then please feel free to come and talk to me.
A reminder that Doves now have P.E lessons with Mr Moseley on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure your child has their kit in school for these days.
Just before the Easter break the whole school had a geography week where each year focused on a different continent. In Year 3 we focused on South America. We had great fun learning about where South America is, some of the countries which form the continent and some of the traditions in these countries. One of the traditions we researched was the carnival which takes place in Brazil annually. We designed and made our own carnival masks and then tried our best at learning a few samba steps!
A fan-tastic start to the New Year and the Spring Term!
We were lucky enough to have our first worship of the year led by Notts County staff and first team goalkeeper Adam Collin. As well as providing the opportunity for the children to ask Adam some questions, Notts County have also offered every child in the school a free ticket, and a free adult ticket, to their match against Exeter City on Saturday 20th January. In addition to this, in support of their Generation 8 initiative, every child in year 3 received a home shirt which Adam kindly offered to sign for the children. We were all very excited in year 3 with our gifts so would like to say a huge thank you to all at Notts County for their generosity!
What a rockin' way to start off Autumn 2!
We are coming towards the end of our topic rocks where we have done and learnt so much! From comparing different rocks and crystals, investigating the internal structure of the earth and exploring how fossils are made we have had great fun!
Most recently we were learning about the three types of rock, sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. So we could visualise how the different types of rocks are formed, we made each type out of chocolate!
We were able to tell that sedimentary rocks are formed when lots of layers build up and are compressed together, metamorphic rocks are made through both high pressure and heat, and igneous rocks are made when molten rock cools.
Friday 13th October - Brackenhurst Stone Age Trip
Wow! What a busy day! After a coach trip over to Brackenhurst Year 3 enjoyed a fantastic, fun filled day! From the moment we arrived our leader for the day had us all laughing and taught us lots of things about the Brackenhurst site on our way to the woods! Once we reached the woods our first job in our groups was to build our shelters for the day and to put on our Stone Age outfits. From there we took part in a carousel of activities. These included:
We also got to eat our lunches outside in the woods under the shelters we made!
Both Mr Jones and Mrs Rogers look forward to reading the recounts of the trip that the children will be writing next week!
