Year Three are going to be so busy next week so we decided to have to have pancake day today instead of on Tuesday! We looked at a Powerpoint (below) about Shrove Tuesday and talked about why Christians give things up for Lent. We read the story of Jesus in the Desert which explains why we have Shrove Tuesday and then produced some lovely writing for our display.
This afternoon we enjoyed eating some pancakes with chocolate and strawberry sauce. They were delicious!
Can you answer these questions?
How long does Lent last?
Why do people give up treats during Lent?
Why did Jesus go to the desert?

Why did Jesus refuse to do what the devil told him?
What could you give up for Lent?
Today we learnt a new style of Art called Pop-Art. This is very colourful style of Art which was made famous by an artist called Andy Warhol. We made our own pictures in this style. They are looking great!
In Science we are learning about growing plants. Today we went into the playground and looked at different sorts of plants. We then thought about why we need plants and the types of foods that grow on plants.
How many foods can you think of that grow on plants?
Can you think of any other reasons why we need plants?
How can we make sure our plants grow well?
We are very excited to be watching Monsters University as part of our Literacy lessons this week. Today we watched the beginning of the film and thought about the good and bad characters (Heroes and Villains). We then worked in groups to think of words to describe Mike and Dean Hardscrabble.
This morning we remembered how to make a tally chart and a pictogram. We all have different objects to sort out. We then made a tally chart and a pictogram. We had to be very clever and count in twos as one picture represented two objects on our pictogram.
