Year 3 Kingfishers

Autumn Term 2 - 2017

Autumn Term 1 2017

Pudsey Bear!

To mark the end of term, we were privileged to have a special visitor in school this afternoon… Pudsey Bear!

To celebrate the launch of Children in Need 2017, we were one of only 20 schools in the country chosen to win a visit from Pudsey.

We had great fun! 

Why don’t you ask your Kingfisher about the hula hoop competition between Miss Turver and Emily?  Emily and I could enter the Olympics for hula  hooping!

The 5 K's

Following on from our visit to the Gurdwara, we explored the 5 K's relating to the Sikhism faith. 

 

Mirror Games

As part of our Science topic, Light, Dark and Shadows, we learnt how mirrors work and how we can use a mirror to reflect light.

We were fascinated when we realised an image in a mirror appears reversed. It was great fun pretending to be each other’s reflection!

To help us understand this further, we played mirror games.  Ask us about these!

Gurdwara Visit

 

Today we were lucky enough to visit the Sikh place of worship, the Gurdwara, in Bradford.  Our lovely Faith Leader invited us inside.  First we took our shoes off and placed them into the shoe racks.  One for the boys and one for the girls.  Next, we looked at the Langar which is the free kitchen.  Then, we went up into the main prayer hall.  This is an extremely special place.  Finally, we looked at some special artifacts. 

Ask us what we have learnt! 

Basketball WOW day!

Wow!  

Today, we met Harlem Globetrotter and the world's tallest professional basketball player, Paul Sturgess!

This morning, we had a whole school assembly where we were first introduced to Paul - he had to duck down to get through the door!  After that, each class had a basketball workshop with him.  When it was our turn, we went down to our basketball court and split into two groups.  One group worked with Mark and practised their basketball skills.  We bounced the ball backwards, forwards and side to side and tried to perform a few tricks.  The other group worked with Paul and took part in fun team games.  We swapped half way through the session.  

Finally, we had our photograph taken with Paul.  What a fantastic day!  

As well as puppeteers, our Kingfishers may be future basketball players too!  

Thank you Paul and Mark!

Black Cat Theatre Company

To kick start our 'Shadow Play' topic, we were very lucky to have a visit from Diana from Black Cat Theatre Company.   First, all the Phase 2 classes watched a fantastic puppet show of The Little Red Hen.  Then each class had a special workshop in our classroom.  We made our very own shadow puppets and performed our own little show!

I think Diana may have inspired a class full of future puppeteers!! 

Welcome to the Kingfisher class page!  

We hope you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to an exciting school year.  Please keep an eye on this page for regular updates from our class!
