Puffins

Welcome to Puffins' Class blog! 

Miss Tawn is our teacher and Mrs Hedaux is our Teaching Assistant.  In our class, we love to exercise our curiosity about our Year 3 topics and dive into books in our reading corner under the beanstalk.  We are looking forward to learning all about our six different topics this year and taking part in new activities.

Our termly topics are:

Term 1 – Predators

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side! Find out who’s coming to visit... is it a bug-munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it?

 

Term 2- Rocks, Relics and Rumbles 

Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds.  Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. 

 

Term 3 – Mighty Metals

You’re an engineer, a scientist, a maker of men (iron men, of course!).  Explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials... Expand your mind as you test and trial, build and move. If you were a metal, which one would you be? Maybe you’re not a metal at all – but a force to be reckoned with! 

 

Term 4 – Gods and Mortals

From nothingness came chaos, from chaos came air and water, from air and water came life! Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light. Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets.  

 

Term 5- Tribal Tales

Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years ago. What would you have seen? What tribal tales will you have to tell? Experience life without modern tools and luxurious home comforts – would you survive? In our topic we will discover how people evolved from hunter gatherers to farmers and the beliefs these pre-historic warriors held. We will grow plants and crops which will be harvested to enable us to understand the physical processes and difficulties faced.

 

Term 6- Our Wonderful World

Grab your passport and pack your suitcase!  You are invited on an adventure around our amazing world.  In our topic we will be exploring the globe, we will be visiting friends in places like Europe and South America.

Author Visit!

The children were very lucky to have a visit with the author Luke Temple.  The children were able to participate with his exciting assembly and hear extracts from his books.  We hope to see the children reading more books soon!

Fossils!!

The children were very excited today, we found a time-capsule!  The children were able to look at some real fossils and found out about the palaeontologist Mary Anning.  We read a diary entry and talked about what creatures the fossils may have com from.  The children can't wait to find out more about their topic!

Poetry!

Over the past two weeks, we have really enjoyed learning about poetry.  We have written poems based on the book 'Oi Frog!' using rhyming couplets.  We have also written haiku poems based on the Harvest Festival assembly.  Finally, we created a poem based on 'Please do not feed the animals'.  The children were transported back to their amazing trip at Baytree to perform their poems using the green screen.  Well done to all our wonderful poets!

Lincolnshire Day.

Today we learnt all about Lincoln Cathedral.  We looked around the outside of the building using the IPads.  We then built the cathedral using Lego.  Later, we read the story of the Lincoln Imp and re-told our own versions using drama and storyboards.

Our Visit to Baytree Owl and Wildlife Centre

Today, we visited Baytree Owl and Wildlife Centre to learn all about owls and other birds of prey.

 

Later on, we enjoyed watching the flying displays, where we met a range of raptor species. Throughout the demonstration, we were told so many amazing facts about the birds!

 

After, we got to dissect owl pellets!

Did you know? Owls produce pellets because they cannot digest certain parts of their prey. Owls regurgitate pellets about 20 hours after an owl eats, and they are tightly compacted masses of hair and bone from the owl's earlier meal!
