In Religious Education, we are learning about Values, trying to answer our Big Question; What matters most?
We agreed that rules are important in helping to reinforce shared values both within our school and in the wider community.
We designed some rules of our own with the aim of creating a happier and fairer society.
This morning, we have been making our own pizzas. We have been grating cheese and chopping the ingredients that we would like on our pizzas and we are very excited to be tasting them later today.
For an update on Religious Education at Freeman’s, please take a look at our Autumn 2018 newsletter.
We were pleased to welcome Year 3 this morning. We have had a fun day today beginning our Scrumdiddlyumptious topic, learning all about food! Today we have made edible slime, baked chocolate chip and blueberry muffins, tasted fruit from around the World and carved potatoes to use for printing.
This morning children have drawn graffiti on large paper, showing their favourite memories of this year. Children drew pictures of what they had enjoyed throughout Year 3, with memories including: making green pancakes, our birds of prey visit, Flag Fenn, stone age artwork and making rivers from modrock. We are really proud of all that they have achieved this year.
Year 3 took the chance to do some problem solving outside to make the most of the lovely weather. Some of the problems were much trickier than they looked! Lots of resilience was needed but they worked very well in teams to complete each activity.
A massive well done to Year 3 for their efforts with their homework this week. We have been very impressed with their acrostic poems about a mythical creature of their choice. We have enjoyed sharing them in class.
This week Year 3 have been learning about the Ancient Greek soldiers and the equipment that they used. They then designed their own shield, ensuring that they showed which city-state they belonged to.
Children have written fantastic diaries from the perspective of a Greek citizen. Some chose to write from the perspective of a slave and others of a rich child.
We think they are brilliant! Can you guess which perspective the children have written from?
This week, Year 3 had a wonderful day learning all about life in Ancient Greece. We learnt about how decisions were made within the different city states, practiced writing with a quill using the Greek alphabet and learnt about how the Greek army would march together. We even had a go at finding our way around the labyrinth from Theseus and the Minotaur.
