What an amazing day we had on Thursday, thanks to Cineworld, Bolton. We watched the film Mary and the witches flower. Young Mary follows a mysterious cat into the nearby forest and discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant that blossoms once every seven years. Together, the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and far away to Endor College — a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee. But there are terrible things happening at the school. Mary has a difficult decision to make, should she walk away from the rude boy who called her laughed at her and called her names or should she be the better person and help him escape from Endor College where he had been inprisoned?
The children thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and behaved impeccably, we are very proud to call them Ferns.
We have been busy in Year 3…building pyramids as part of our home learning and creating square based pyramids from nets in class! Great fun!
In Year 3 we have revisited measuring this week…starting with length and height we have measured each other as well as the classroom and things in it!! When we moved onto mass we had to estimate and weigh store cupboard foods, fruits and class room equipment. Did you know… you need a LOT of paper clips to make a kilogram!
Year 3 children have been learning more about fractions…finding equivalents, ordering, counting and adding and subtracting them! Here they used Cuisenaire rods to create their own fraction walls.
Year 3 today put the finishing touches to their versions of The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai. The results are fabulous!!
Year 3 have been learning about how an eruption from Mount Vesuvius destroyed Pompeii!! We imagined what it would be like to hear the rumbling and see the ash cloud rising…
This afternoon Year 3 have enjoyed writing Easter poems, spelling out Easter and including rhyme!
We are delighted in Year 3 to celebrate WBD at last after having to cancel due to school being closed last week!!
Year 3 children have had a brilliant time today learning French songs with our visitor, Mademoiselle Delphine. Magnifique!!
