Class Larch 2018-19

Welcome to Larch Class!
We have had a great start to the Autumn Term. The children have settled well into year 3 and we are all looking forward to an enjoyable, interactive and challenging learning experience this year!
 
Our first topic is Science based and we have been investigating mirrors and reflections.
 
Take a look to see what else we are learning this term....  
 
It was lovely to see so many faces at 'Meet the Teacher', if you were unable to attend there is a letter that has the same information that was said during the meeting.
We had a visit from Tarmac, they told us about how to keep safe and how lorries have 'blind spots' 
 
They taught us: 'If you can't see the driver, the driver can't see you'
 
We even got chance to sit inside the lorry!
We had an amazing week learning the iSingPop songs with Sandy, we loved performing them at the church and even have a CD recording of our singing! 
 
This is a photo of us and Year 4 recording our songs
We have had so much fun at the Forest of Dean Gymnastic Centre this term. 
 
We have learnt how to use our core strength to balance along the beam, keep position when on the trampoline and move along the bars. 
 
Our warm ups focused on fitness and developing our strength. 
 
We have shown great perseverance as many of the moves were new to use and hard to master, but, with practice we did it! 
 
Mrs Walker came into Larch Class to make bread with us. 
We followed a recipe, left it to prove and then shaped it into rolls. 
Mrs Walker then cooked them for us.
 
We then tasted our rolls and evaluated them; making suggestions for improvements. 
 
We even made a class loaf for the Harvest service! 
Larch class have had another great start to the new term.

Roger Drury came to visit Larch class. He supported them in making shadow puppets and developing a story that they could say as they performed their show. 
 
They had to think of a character, a location and then add to their storyline with something unusual. 
 
They worked together in groups to design the shadow puppet stage, a name for their production company and develop a storyline. 
 
They then performed their story to the rest of the class.
