Class Brain Builders

2019 – 2020

This week, Woodpecker Class went to Maidstone Museum as part of their inquiry into ancient civilisations. They were able to hold real Egyptian artefacts and replicas, they learnt all about the mummifying process and they got to mummify an orange!
To mummify an orange, the first thing Woodpeckers did was remove the top of the orange (which was the brain!) Next, the children took out all the juice and insides of the orange (these were the organs!) After that, they stuffed the orange in order to dry it out and help it keep its shape. Then our orange mummy needed to be wrapped. Finally, the death mask was drawn on.
Woodpeckers have been building their own fraction walls to find equivalent fractions.
Woodpecker Class have been using pastels to create their pictures of the Australian bush fires in preparation for Australia Day on Friday.
Woodpecker Class have had a busy day of swimming and cooking. This afternoon, they made their own scones.
They worked as part of a team, followed instructions and enjoyed the taste of their creations.
This term, Year 3 have been working super hard on making their own Minotaur masks. They have taken inspiration from reading the legend Theseus and the Minotaur and created an amazing display!
Woodpecker Class have been working on their sketching skills this week. They chose two different emotions and worked hard to draw the different expressions.

Woodpecker Class have been really fortunate to have Adrian from Chance To Shine working with them during their PE lessons this term. The last session today was classroom based but it was just as much fun as the time they’ve spent outdoors has been. Thank you, Adrian!

Woodpecker Class have designed and started making their own inventions!

Woodpecker Class have been using freeze frames to help them with their writing.

This week, Woodpecker Class have been preparing for their Harvest Festival. They are focusing on clean water and are creating a collage as part of their presentation.

Woodpecker Class have been cooking up a storm today. They worked super hard on creating their own vegetable stew!

Woodpecker Class have been getting their fingers dirty as they learn about the Stone Age. They created some fantastic cave paintings!

Year 3 made Stone Age stew this week. The tasting of it produced some rather interesting reactions!
