Sphero Chariot Challenge

3G have spent a little bit of time designing chariots for Sphero and yesterday we FINALLY got to test them out.  We planned a design and then used a variety of materials to bring the plan to life.  It was great to see the chariots in action and reflect on what we could change to improve our creations.

We’ve been playing an awesome game during Maths to warm up and get ready for the lesson ahead.  Find some cards at home and give it a try!  It is sure to get you thinking!

We’ve been planning some awesome imaginative texts for next Term’s Writers Festival!  Today we did a lot of brainstorming and came up with some entertaining ideas!  We can’t wait for you to see the final product!

More birthdays…

3G have been celebrating lots of birthdays lately!  Yesterday we had TWO birthdays to celebrate!  We hope you both had a lovely day and enjoyed your birthday Flipgrids with messages from your class family.

Check out our sketches…

3G spent some time looking at and talking about The Discobolus of Myron.  We looked at the way the artist used different angles and lines to create a feeling of movement in his sculpture.  3G then went outside and used our classmates to create our own living sculptures.  We photographed each of the creations and used them as inspiration for the final stage of our art lesson…sketching!

We love the final product!

Our Excursion and Word Mania

Last Friday, 3G battled the CRAZY wind and had a fun day at the Liverpool Museum.  It was great to learn about how Liverpool has changed over the years and see what life used to look like.  The museum staff commented on our beautiful behaviour and Miss Grinsell was really proud of us.

Miss Grinsell came as a Ninja and managed to sneak up on us several times!  Mrs Baumgartner came as a scientist.  We had a great day.

Today we started using a new ICT tool called FlipGrid.  We are using it to tune in to interesting words during our Reading session and teach our friends.  If you would like to access our class Grid we have written the code in our planners.  The grids are private and can’t be accessed without the code.  We will be using lots of grids as the year progresses and look forward to sharing our ideas and knowledge with everyone!

Art outside

Today 3G had a wonderful time working on our Art in the sunshine.  We planned and then created dot paintings on mini canvases Miss Grinsell bought for us.  We took all the resources into the quiet area and had a lovely time working in the sunshine.  Once we had finished, we grabbed a camp chair and spent time reading.  Such a great way to spend a Thursday afternoon!
