Getting Those Muscles Moving!

In Year 3, we’ve been exploring the human body. This week, we learned about muscles and tendons before seeing them in action. We participated in different activities that worked each of the muscles around our bodies, from biceps to quadriceps.

Following that, we set up for and investigated how different body parts work. We explored four different investigation questions:
• Do people with longer legs run faster?
• Can shorter people do a forward roll faster?
• Do people with smaller feet balance better?
• Can people with longer arms throw further?

What did you find out? Comment below!

Bones Bones Bones!

This week Ruby class have been learning about animal classification and the purpose of a skeletal system. We found out that animals including humans have endothermic, exothermic or hydrostatic skeletons and that animals can be classified as invertebrates or vertebrates.

The children recreated a human skeleton to demonstrate their understanding.

Class Questionnaires

Today in English, we created a questionnaire to fill in about ourselves ready to begin writing our own autobiographies next week! We will use the information we research, as well as all of the exciting new language features we have learned this week for our exciting project.

Please make sure to bring it back on Monday. If you need another copy of your questionnaire, please see below for Ruby, Onyx and Jet’s class questionnaires.

Have a lovely weekend!

Shape Art

In Art we took inspiration from the French artist, Henri Matisse, in particular his technique of ‘painting with scissors’ and one of his most famous pieces, The Snail.

Ruby class used their knowledge of 2D shapes to produce beautiful artwork based on an animal theme.

A great start for Ruby Class!

Over the past two weeks it has been a pleasure to see how well the children have settled into life in Year 3 and into Ruby Class.

As you can see from the photos, the children have been working hard to show what they know about 2D and 3D shapes.

Please keep checking the blog for more updates throughout the year.

Best Wishes,

Mrs Salim.
