Today was World Book Day and our focus was a 'Vocabulary Parade'. The children all dressed up as a different word and we have a wonderful morning completing activities that focused on words and vocabulary. In Maths, we created a poster all about our topic 'Measurement' and for Literacy, we went on a Vocabulary Scavenger Hunt around school and wrote stories including the word we had come dressed as! 


Today we turned into mathematicians and used our measuring skills and teamwork to measure the length and width of our school hall. We have been looking at measuring in metres and centimetres. 

Today we had so much fun raising money for Ash Green Primary School in our Federation danceathon! We were all very sore and tired by the end of the day - Akroydon class sure can move!


As part of our Design Technology this half term, we have been designing and creating pizzas to appeal to children aged 4-10! We talked about how to make it look nice but also be balanced with a range of ingredients on! The children had lots of fun designing and working together to make their own pizzas. I hope they taste delicious! 


 This week in literacy, we wrote our own poems linked to our book - Escape from Pompeii. We tried to include alliteration, powerful adjectives and rhyming words. We all worked extremely hard and were so proud of our poems - we even performed them to the class. Maizie and Alfie bravely volunteered to share their poems with us.



In our music lesson today, we have been focusing on Ballads. We looked at the song 'Space Oddity' by David Bowie and how the lyrics told a story. Using this, we created our own storyboards based off the song. 


 Today Year 3 had a very special visitor who came in to tell us all about the Stone Age and Iron Age! He brought lots of interesting fossils for us to look at and we even got to become archaeologists for the morning, finding and cataloguing our own artefacts.


Our Class Christmas Song


 In our science lesson today, Akroydon class looked at the different bones we have in our bodies. We learnt lots of new vocabulary and we even had a go at recreating accurate skeletons using matchsticks! 

In our topic lesson today, we looked at Stonehenge and the significance it had during the Stone Age and Bronze Age! We used biscuits to try and recreate Stonehenge - we even got to eat some! 


In our music lessons this half term, we have been practising Viking songs. As a class, we came up with our own actions and performed as a class.


In our Science lesson this week, we had to sort different animals into their correct group - carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. We worked in groups to put the different animals in the right group before finding the names in the classroom! 


As part of our Stone Age topic, Akroydon class had to first place their instructions on how to make a Stone Age dessert in the correct order before we went to make it! It was delicious and we thought it tasted just like warm Ribena! 

This week in Topic we looked at Stone Age weapons and why some were more useful than others! We had to create a TV advert in our groups and create our own bow and arrow! 

In our PSHE this week we looked at our feelings and how they are different. We also look at how we would react to different situations and we acted out some freeze frames! Akroydon have some budding actors in the class! 

This week in PE we worked on our stamina and fitness and completed some circuit training! We worked with Springwood class on squats, press ups, sit ups and much more!
