In science we found out how fast we can run. We looked at data and analyzed it. We found out what sugar and vegetables do to your running ability. We discovered that food makes a difference to how fast you can run. Having big feet doesn’t necessarily make you faster!
We are finding out about London and Dartmoor and what makes each place unique.
On Friday three people from OCRA Sue, Josh and Marie did a special sports day with our class. We had numbers on our PE shirts! We did long jump, they used a tape measure to see who could jump the furthest and who could throw the furthest. We did two running activities, one was long and one was short.
We finished reading the Owl who was Afraid of the Dark, and we started a new book called Hansel and Gretel.
It was European Day of Languages on Friday. We named lots of European countries. George knew the most! We were going to sing some songs in French, but the computer stopped working! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXkJ88ygPY0&safe=active
We learnt rugby skills and we made our mosaic tiles.

More comments from the children next week!
Year Three have made a great start to the new school year. All the children have come in with such a positive attitude, and seem delighted to be part of the Mighty Oak Class!
We have started learning about our new topic: Dartmoor and in science we are thinking about what scientists do and why. In maths, we have been playing maths games with our table partners.
We have enjoyed meeting with the rest of the school in our outdoor singing and assemblies, in our bubbles. Our first music lesson focussed on ‘Lovely Day’ by Bill Withers, which has started our term with an uplifting feel.
A highlight, of course, has been playing on the school field!
