Inspiration, Celebration and Education

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 Ezra Class.  We hope you enjoy exploring the exciting things we have been learning!

Our first dress rehearsal of 'Walk Like an Egyptian'!

World Book Day 2019

We have made our own Egyptian Mummies!  First, we made salt dough, formed a body shape and cooked it in the microwave to harden it.  We then wrapped the mummies in kitchen roll strips with watery glue - we got SO messy!! Once this had dried, we painted them and added detail.  We are so proud of the finished project.  Ask us about the real mummification process - we have loved learning all of the gruesome facts!

'Across The Stars' Community Opera Project

Year 3 have been working with writer Miranda Walker to create the characters and storyline for a brand new opera.  They are now working with composer Michael Betteridge to create the music and songs for the opera!  The opera is called Across The Sky, and the children will be performing it on the main stage in Cheltenham Town Hall as part of Cheltenham Music Festival on 14 July at 2pm and 5pm.  Tickets are free, but must be booked in advance.

We really enjoyed our visit to We The Curious!  We started the day with a 'light and shadow' workshop.  We completed lots of experiments including splitting up white light, looking at how light travels to allow us to see and using prisms to make a rainbow.

We then spent time looking around the museum.  Our favourite parts were the bubble area where we made ENORMOUS bubbles that we could step inside, magnetic sand, the 'leaning lounge' and the hypnotizing wheels.

We ended the day in the Planetarium! We watched an incredible show where we traveled through space!  It was an awesome day, we would all love to go back!

Year 3 History Day - Prehistoric Britain

We learnt about the Stone Age.  We started with the Paleolithic period, then moved on to Mesolithic period and finally the Neolithic period!  We looked at the lives of cave people from the Paleolithic period, we made ceremony mask and Stone Age tools from the Mesolithic period and went on a Stone Henge fact hunt for the Neolithic period.

We had so much fun in the snow!
