Class 3 Home Learning    

These are strange times for us all. It's not easy adapting to doing your work at home but I hope you're enjoying it. I have received some lovely emails and photographs from parents and it's great to see your smiling faces. I am so pleased with all the amazing work you have been doing and I am very proud of all of you. Please keep uploading them to Tapestry.

 

Keep in touch. I am only an email away - bbrown@blacko.lancs.sch.uk.

Class 3 Activities  

In Science, we started the term by learning all about the classification of animals. We covered many things including habitats, vertebrates and invertebrates. For a few lessons, we took our learning over to Blacko Park, where we conducted an Invertebrate Hunt!

We also classified animals into their correct group...

Next, we made crowns fit for a Druid...

On Friday 8th November, we collapsed our curriculum for Remembrance Day...

For homework, we created some INCREDIBLE shoe-box habitats!

Mr Brown took eight members of our class to a football tournament at the start of November. They were unbeaten in six matches and were only one point off winning the tournament. So close! They did us proud.

For homework, we created some brilliant posters and news articles on the damaging effect of plastic pollution on our environment...

Every Wednesday lunchtime, Mr Brown runs Chess Club! Here we are in action...

The Athletics team did us proud in January...

We loved our Art Workshop with the amazing Ursula Hurst...

The excitement of doing our working out on the tables...

In English, we recapped our knowledge on poetry (on the tables!)

Every Wednesday, Mr Brown runs Times Table Club...

The classroom in the middle of World Book Day. A nightmare for Mr Brown!

To continue developing our understanding of the history of music, we loved listening to Queen on vinyl...

In PE, we are learning Dance!

In Science, we prepared some great presentations on how sound travels to the ear...

What a brilliant performance at Sing Together...
