Welcome to Class 3
Here are just a few examples of some of the learning that has taken place in Class 3 so far this year.
Our first Science topic this year was ‘Light and Shadows’. At the end of this unit we created our own shadow puppet theatres.
We either wrote our own story or retold a classic tale. We then took these over to Saltwood Nursery and performed our show!
In RE we have been learning about the Sikh religion. We have explored the ‘Five K’s’ giving thought to each one and what it represents. We have made compassions between Sikhism and Christianity, finding lots of similarities and differences.
For our Open Lesson this year, parents were invited into Class 3 to take part in an investigation. This was an introduction to our Science topic ‘Magnets’. We explored various magnetic and non-magnetic materials, looking for common factors. We even got to make our own magnets using scissors!
We have really enjoyed learning about Ancient Egypt. You can see here that we have created portraits of Tutankhamun. We also performed our class assembly based on this topic.
We had the pleasure of visiting Balgowan Nursing Home. We sang them some songs and then played Hangman and Noughts and Crosses. We then showed off our reading skills by sharing some of favourite stories with them.
