Life in Alder Class

Right back at the beginning of term, we were lucky enough to take part in a Road Safety workshop. The children learnt how to safely cross the road and we hope that you have seen them putting this into practise while you have been out walking as a family.

Year 3 began their Get Set Go topic by having a debate in English about whether junk food should be allowed in schools. They demonstrated that they could think of many different reasons, both for and against, and were able to use a variety of persuasive language in order to articulate their ideas to their peers. From this, they have developed their use of written persuasive language techniques to persuade people to choose their food responsibly to reduce the environmental impact of their choices.

In Geography this term, we have looked at where our food comes from and the impact of purchasing and eating foods from across the globe. We learnt about certain foods being grown at certain times of the year and how we can buy and eat fruit and vegetables in season - grown in our country to save causing more pollution to our world. Thank you to everyone who brought in food packaging to add to our classroom displays.

We enjoyed a fantastic online Science workshop called ‘Ask a Geologist’. This linked back to our Science from Term 2 and it was amazing to see what the children had remembered! They asked some brilliant questions and further developed their knowledge of rocks and soils.

For the past few weeks, we have welcomed a tennis coach into school to teach the children how to play this sport. This will continue next term and some children that show particular aptitude for the sport will be selected to represent the school in the King’s Cup Tennis tournament. From what we have seen so far, it will be very tricky to choose which children to take.
