Anti-Bullying Week

The theme for Anti-Bullying Week this year is: One Kind Word. Bluebirds looked at what effect kind words have on us. Throughout the week they children looked at how they felt when someone said One Kind Word.
The children came with acts of kindness they could not only do this week but throughout the year.
Declan – Share equipment
Isla – Look out for people looking unhappy
Corban – Use compliments
Alexander H – Make breakfast for my mum
Aizah – Homemade presents
James – Play with someone new
Anren – Sing a song to someone
Jack – Do a chore at home
Reva – Look out for those who are alone
Here are the feelings the children felt when another person said a kind word to them.
Olivia – Thankful and pleased
Alexander R – Happy
Mrs. Parry – Loved and wanted
Jacob – Surprised
Tatenda – Appreciated and special
Sam – Brightens my day
James – It makes the day good
Lexi Mai – Joyful

Bluebirds made a kindness circle and all said one kind thing to another pupil.  This activity made the children feel happy, grateful and proud.
Karly – Declan said I was friendly
Shriya – Reva said I am good at maths
Charlie – Amudha said she likes my handwriting
Ayra – Aizah said my outfit was cute
Corban – Bethany said my shirt is cool

Kind Words

Bluebirds shared the kind words they had received this week.  Half the class have been asked how they are by another child.
Corban – My sister told me I looked nice when I got changed last night
Maya – When I was peer mediating today, a  Year 2 child told me I was kind today and taught her new games well.
Aizah – My Mum said my hair was pretty this morning.

Representing Musical Notes

Bluebirds have been busy composing their own selection of notes to accompany the song they have been learning called Let Your Spirit Fly.  The children each made up their own symbols to represent the musical notes they had decided to use.
It was a very “tuneful” afternoon! 🎼

Using Scratch

During Computing,  Bluebirds have been coding using Scratch.

They learned about algorithms and how to use motion, repeat, looks and sound blocks within their program.

Bluebirds created their own Scratch program adding their own background and sprites.

Watch year 3’s sprites dance!

 

Cave Paintings

The Bluebirds in Year 3 have sketched and painted in the style of Stone Age cave paintings this week in their art lesson. Here is just a small selection of the fantastic paintings the children have created. We’re sure you will agree we have a very talented class of artists.

Monster Poems 

The children have written list poems based on their class novel Kirndlekrax by Philip Ridley.
They spent time looking at and comparing other list poems by many different authors, then created a word bank to help them write their own.
Finally, they not only wrote but also published their list poems using Publisher on the laptops. We hope you enjoy the few poems we could put on our blog – the other poems will be made into a class book for the children to enjoy.

Magnets

The children looked at different magnets and their properties. They looked at their different uses such are in toys, fridge magnets and medical uses.
The children even discovered there was a cow magnet and what it was used for.
They found out that even though we do not think of magnets as useful, they had so many  uses in everyday life.
