More health and happiness

Year three have enjoyed another two days learning new skills and living healthily. On Tuesday, the three classes took part in archery and they acquired the skills very quickly and even managed to beat a few Year 5’s! We then had an exciting assembly with Thomas who demonstarted some excellent circus tricks; including juggling, plate spinning and the diablo. In the afternoon, we explored the 5 ways to well-being and analysed different pictures and quotes and linked them to the correct well being theme. We then used these pictures and quotes to create a well-being collage; beautifully made by Mrs Eccles. Today has also been full of excitement as we learnt some netball skills, completed healthy living crosswords and created a healthy living mosaic using our times tables knowledge. We cannot wait to see what the end of the week brings!

Happy, Healthy Living!

Year 3 have embraced the start of Healthy Living Week today! We started with the daily mile around the field, went swimming, took part in Cosmic Yoga and completed our fitness diaries. We have explored the five challenges for this week which everyone is going to try:

  1. Have a healthy breakfast every day
  2. Drink more water – 6-8 glasses a day
  3. Try to do at least 60 minutes of exercise a day
  4. Eat at least 5 fruit and vegetables every day
  5. Make a change this week.

We have had a marvellous day and are looking forward to Archery tomorrow!

Remember to come to school in your P.E kits and bring a water bottle and wear sun-cream.

 

 

Dribbling Drills

Year 3 had a fantastic morning becoming basketballers! Mrs Mears and her father, who is a basketball coach, very kindly came in and taught the children some key basketball skills such as dribbling in different ways and chest passing. The children then used these skills to take part in a small match and did a fabulous job! All the children were highly focused and excellently behaved, we may even have a few future Michael Jordan’s! Many thanks go to Mrs Mears and her father for such a wonderful morning who also taught us a new basketball chant.  Keep up the good work year 3!

Shadow Puppets and Swimming rota

Today year three ended the term in a fabulous and creative way. We performed our shadow puppet theatre shows! The children have been writing their own fables in Literacy and learning about the festival of shadow puppets in topic. These were then merged together and the children have been designing and creative their own fable story performed in the style of a shadow puppet theatre. The children had so much fun making and performing these and they were amazing!

In addition, please find below the new rota for Swimming for year 3 for the final term. There is a swimming session on the first day back so please remember swimming kits!

Cosmic Yoga

Year 3 have had a superb afternoon today in P.E practising their yoga skills. Class 10 looked at the story of squishy the fish, class 11 followed the story of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone and class 12 explored the film Trolls using yoga.

Weekly update

Year 3 have had an exciting week this week. They loved the royal wedding celebration on Monday even though it was slightly interrupted by swimming. We have used this opportunity in our Literacy lessons by becoming newspaper reporters, collecting quotes from the party in order to write a newspaper report about the day. In Maths we have begun to investigate measures and have been measuring length as well as practising our times tables. Why not try the game below ‘Hit the button’ and see how quick you are!

 

 

Fiesta de Lakeside!

Year 3 are back and ready to celebrate the summer! We will be looking at different festivals for our new Topic this term ‘Fiesta de Lakeside!’ The children have been researching and creating some fantastic homework projects over the Easter holidays and we are very excited to start learning about our first Festival which is all about Shadow Puppets. At the end of the term the children will be selecting a festival they would like to show and perform at our very own Lakeside school festival which parents will be invited to.

Bones and Stones….

Year 3 have had a great first day back to school with a very exciting new topic! When the children arrived this morning their classroom was a complete mess and it looked as though someone had been to visit. The children managed to find some clues….some dinosaur footprints! The children have also been researching dinosaurs outside of school and created some really fantastic projects. This is going to be a very exciting term.

Roman Invasion!

Over the last couple of weeks year 3 have been learning to march like roman soldiers during our dance lessons. They have learnt to march on their own, in pairs and small groups in order to form the famous tortoise formation that Roman soldiers used during battles. The children have been using their hands as shields and learning how to follow a leader as a class group. We then used these skills to perform a dance in which class 10 acted as the roman soldiers and class 11 acted as the Britons trying to attack them.

Odd Socks…

IMG_0025Today we have been celebrating Odd Socks Day! Lakeside pupils have taken part in this celebration because it is anti-bullying week and we are raising awareness that we are all different but equal. The children loved wearing mismatched socks and enjoyed telling their friends what their favourite socks look like. Here is a picture of Class 11 showing off their beautiful patterns.
