We are loving finding out about Tudor Britain!
We designed outfits this week for rich and poor Tudors. We focused on the detail and colours used in Tudor times to create a design that would have complimented fashion at that time
Design and Technology
We are designing crowns for Tudor Royals.
Our Trip to Ordsall Hall
We loved our Eco project with Jenny and Lynn focusing on how we would make our world better.
Please go and see our banner at Riverside 1 next to the Gaia Globe.
Light and Darkness
Science has been amazing discovering light and shadows.
Spellings and Times tables will come home on a Wednesday to be tested the following Wednesday.
At Caldershaw we know how important reading is: not only to enable us to find out about the world and research specific topics, but (most importantly) in giving life long pleasure.
Please read a book every night and record it in your reading record (remember: all books count). A few pages will do, but make sure you understand what you've read!
AND remember each time your book is signed you will collect team point for your team.
We have just started our new addition and subtraction topic in class and are really confident using 1's,10's and 100's.
In English we are studying the book 'Sparky' by Jenny Offill & Chris Appelhans.
We are creating our own Sparky Character and writing Non Chronological reports on them.
We are also so lucky to have our very own Sparky in our reading corner created by Mrs. Shaw! He is amazing!
Year 3 have loved linking topic with Art this half term. We have created Tudor Rose's using clay. We are so excited to paint them.
We are looking at animation and creating our own short films.
We were very fortunate on our trip to the Rochdale Pioneers museum to be part of the Little Amal Tour. We got to welcome her to Rochdale and some of our class were interviewed by BBC Radio.
We are enjoying learning a new language for the first time in Year 3!
Nor Bert is going home weekly with one of our children to learn English and encourage them to learn French at home as well as school.
