U Dance 2020
For the last few months, Year 3 have been training incredibly hard for our performance at the Cumbrian UDance Festival 2020. The children chose to base their dance on one of our class guided reading books, ‘The Iron Man’ and we put this to the song ‘Titanium’. We performed twice on stage at the Carnegie Theatre in Workington in front of a large audience.
Year 3 were absolutely amazing and we are so proud of them for their bravery, hard work and commitment throughout the whole of our UDance journey. Click on the photograph below to see exactly what we got up to.
We visited Tullie House as they had a very exciting Ancient Egypt exhibition on for us to take part in. We created our own headdresses, wrapped a mummy, looked at ancient artefacts, dressed up as significant Egyptian people and even spoke to a lady from these Ancient times! Please click on the photograph below to take a look at what we got up to.
During Maths Week, we have completed lots of fun activities but our favourite was writing a multiplication rap song about our 4 times tables! The children were excellent and our friends in Year 6 were very impressed! Here we are creating our ‘album cover’ for our song!
We visited the Sands Centre to watch the Horrible Histories performance of ‘Ancient Egypt’. It was very entertaining and has made us very excited for our Egypt topic later in the year!
Year 3 have been creating their very own sedimentary rocks in sandwiches! We have been looking at the layers that form a sedimentary rock and the pressure needed to create it. We have used bread, sand, rocks and soil to represent each layer and pushed them together to create a ‘sedimentary sandwich’. Take a look at our delicious treats by clicking on the photo below.
The Year 3 children have created their own cave paintings, right here in our classroom! After looking at how these were made in the Stone Age using natural resources such as berries and sticks, the children have recreated this and made their own drawings in our very own cave.
