Otter Class had a wonderful session with Nick from Bugfest. We enjoyed learning about all the different bugs and insects that Nick had brought with him. The children enjoyed holding some of the insects including a stick insect, an assassin bug, a cockroach, an iron sting beetle, a millipede and an African land snail called Frank. The children were very brave and some faced their fears even though they were a little worried about holding the animals. Well done Otter Class!
The children were thrilled to have responses from children in Yamba. We were very impressed by how well they could write in English considering it was a second language and enjoyed finding similarities between their lives and ours.
We were very proud of Otter Class as they participated in Mr Bourne’s Hockey Tournament. The children really did show great perseverance and teamwork. Well done Otter Class for being excellent representatives of the school!
The children loved dressing up for Space Day. Their costumes were wonderfully inventive and they loved learning all about Volcanos and how fossils formed in the Space Dome, as well as designing their own planets which were very creative! A great day had by all.
The children loved spending time with parents in this creative workshop. We used recycled materials and paint to create our fish, leaving zero waste! The results were fabulous and the children were very proud of what they could create.
The children had a busy day visiting the Roman Baths. They absolutely loved dressing up in togas and tunics; learning about how the Romans would have prepared food; and creating their own mosaic patterns. The children also enjoyed touring the baths and were fascinated by the naturally heated water!
A lovely day had by all!
The children were thrilled to meet the wonderful alpacas and to learn about how they live. Some children even overcame their fears of the Alpacas and gave them a little stroke. The children loved learning about the food that the Alpacas ate, how to care for them and the countries which they come from.
The children loved learning about the features of a playscript and were given the chance to work together in rehearsing and performing their own in front of the class. The children's creativity and enthusiasm made the performances very enjoyable. Well done Otter Class!
A great start to Year 3!
Year 3 have had an excellent first few weeks settling in to their new classroom. This week, Otter Class have enjoyed exploring poetry and have looked at different types of poems including The Pig by Roald Dahl and Chocolate Cake by Michael Rosen. Embracing the season of Autumn, we have worked hard to use our knowledge of similes and expanded noun phrases to create our own autumnal poems. The children are very proud of the poems they have created and look forward to sharing some at the Harvest Celebration in a couple weeks time!
