We won!

3G did an awesome job raising money for World Vision during the coin challenge.  Our coin line was the longest and we won a mufti day next Term!  Our line stretched from one side of the Quad to the other and could easily have gone all the way back to the start!

Coin Challenge!

Well done to 3G who have manager to bring in A LOT of coins for the  World Vision challenge!

We’ve been spending some time planning imaginative texts ready for Grandparent’s Day next Term.  After brainstorming ideas and receiving feedback from our peers, we are now onto writing a first draft.  We can’t wait for you to see the finished result.

Our New Morning Routine


3G have just started learning a new morning song.  It is a LOT of fun to sing together and is a fun way to start a great day of learning.  We think we have mastered it really quickly!

In Maths we have been making some instructional videos explaining an awesome strategy for the 4x tables – double the double.  We make awesome teachers!

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.

When I grow up…

Today we had so much fun dressing up as what we would like to be when we grow up!  There were some amazing costumes around!

Check out the photos and cool green screen videos to see what we aspire to be.

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!
