VE day

A great end to our school year celebrating the end of the war!

A wondercrump day!

Year 3 enjoyed a fabulous day in Great Missenden, exploring inspirational buildings for some of Roald Dahl’s books.  The session in the museum was very interesting.  We hope the children can make use of their free ticket to return there

 

Music concert next week

Year 3 children have had their final lesson today before their concert next week. All parents and careers are invited to come and watch at 2:15 next Thursday afternoon. The children have been working to hard to learn all of the new skills and are looking forward to sharing these in the concert.

Amazing homework projects

Wow, what a wonderful afternoon sharing the children’s homework projects. The children who took part spoke animatedly about their work. The children’s writing has been tremendous.  It was wonderful to see confident, enthused children.  How fabulous to interview great grandparents and look at real medals and photos! The model medals were real eye catchers too.  We all thoroughly enjoyed the WW2 inspired food, plus the array of Anderson Shelters was spectacular. We loved the couscous grass, shreddies sandbags, bubblegum vegetables, baked bean can walls and lego furniture.   Well done Class 1!

WW2 project homework

This afternoon, Year 3 have enjoyed showing off their homework projects. We have seen a wide range of projects, including: factfiles, models of Anderson shelters, drawings, cakes and many more. We have been very impressed by the effort put into this homework and would like to thank parents and careers at home for their support with this.

Creating batiks in art

Year 3 have been studying Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘The Starry Night’ painting. Last week they designed and painted a batik inspired by Van Gogh’s painting. We think these batiks look fantastic!

Learning About Islam in RE

In Year 3, we have started to learn about Islam in our RE lessons.  This week, we learned about the 99 names of Allah.  Here are some beautiful designs we made, showing some of His names.

Carrot cookies

Year 3 have been following a recipe to make carrot cookies. This recipe could have been made using one person’s rations during World War 2. The children have peeled, grated and mixed the ingredients and were able to taste their cookies this afternoon. IMG_0711 IMG_0714 IMG_0721 IMG_0725
