We've had a special visit from our furry friend this week so we could see all the benefits of having a school dog!
Our Futures Day! We've had Mrs Murray telling us all about being a headteacher, an IT specialist coming in to show us some tech she works with as well as a young farmer explaining how she ended up driving tractors and raising blue cows! It's been an interesting day and inspired a few career changes :D
MGL spent the afternoon with us to help us create our own stopmotion videos! We used whiteboards, ourselves and cut out our own puppets to recreate stories
Freddy Fit came to visit again! We really pushed ourselves this time!
Hard to believe this is our final term! The children have lots to look forward to as we come to the end of year three, with Our Futures project we will be looking ahead to life after Moston Fields and thinking about the careers we are aiming for. Will we be an author, an olympian, a doctor, an engineer or even a teacher?! Who knows, perhaps our Careers day will help us decide. There will be a focus on healthy lifestyles throughout the project which ties in nicely with our sports day as well as another visit from Freddy Fit! We're looking forward to a great term
We've been visited by Stone Age dwellers! Our visitors were super impressd by our knowledge and questions to round of the Stone Age topic.
To round off our project we planned and built Stone Age homes structures. These structures would have been covered with animal skins, mud, grass and more to keep the heat in!
Outdoor Learning Day was a huge success! We spent our time outdoors being inspired by artist Andy Goldsworthy and creating our own temporary installations as well as practicing our Yoga moves on the grass!
Loving our descriptive writing, full of suspense- I'm Hooked! (and from the peer feedback I'm not the only one!)
Back to North Manchester Coop Academy and our Lab coats on! This week we created our own experiement to see what is essential to plant growth. Then were given a demonstration of reactive materials using the bunsen burner!

Creative writing fornight! Our focus -Manchester Canals, we produced some awesome descriptive writing after working with the wonderful Gabby to help us towards another school book! Stay tuned!
Here is some fabulous descriptive writing we have done this week! Thinking about how word choice affects the reader.
Our afternoon at North Manchester Coop academy was fantastic! We got on our lab coats, predicted and created a method to test our predictions! Watch out for the results!
Engage! We've been getting introduced to prehistoric times and creating our own cave paintings, can you decipher them?
Wow! Look at these stone age tools produced as homework over the holidays! Great job!
Our summer term is jam-packed with exciting opportunities! We are beginning with our new project Tribal Tales, where we will head back into prehistoric times to the Stone Age and uncover what daily life was like. We have started our week off by creating our own cave paintings, can you decipher them? Our literacy has also started a little differently as we are in our creative writing fortnight! The school theme is Manchester and we are looking at Manchester canals. Keep an eye out for our descriptive writing AND the work we do with our special guest artist -Gabby. Finally we have a very special event planned for the end of the half term with a prehistoric guest paying us a visit! Exciting stuff!

We had a fabulous day exploring Manchester and visiting the Central Library. A great Engage start to our Urban Pioneers project!
This half term our learning is taking an artistic twist! We will be exploring Manchester's urban art, researching the history of Manchester and finding out what makes a city along the way. Our Engage this week was a great success as the children loved visiting the Central Library in town and getting the opportunity to create some of their own art work. We can't wait to see what they produce at the end of this project!

We will be learning all our natural disasters and how they have effected people in the past and present across the world. Our science topic will see us analysing Rocks and Soils and hopefully we will find some interesting fossils along the way!

We've had a very exciting start to the second half term! Thanks to a special visit from Anchor Education, we have kicked off our new project of Gods and Mortals with lots of drama and singing to learn all about the Ancient Greeks! Did you know Hades, God of the underworld, had a pet cerberus? Or that Cronus (Zeus' father) tried to EAT his children? The Greek gods were brutal! During this project we are looking forward to learning all about the Ancient Greeks ad comparing their lives to our. When would you rather live?
Our Ancient Greek day was a great start to the topic!
After meeting our predatory bird at the beginning of this term, in Science we have been investigating food chains and this week, specifically, what owls eat. To find out we looked at how owls produce pellets from the second chamber in their stomach. When we dissected them we found bones, feathers and everything else an owl would not be able to digest!
We’ve been Troll hunting this week and found one in the forest school! *gulp!* (Miss Bridge was terrified!!)
Independent Writing- All our hard work has paid off! Just look at some of the amazing writing that has happened this week :-)
Endo or Exo? Year 3 have been looking at the similarities and difference of animal skeletons. Look what we created!
Freddy Fit was a roaring success!
Teamwork! Try Try Try Again!
The children loved taking part in Freddy Fit and we saw lots of resislient children! They kept going and didn't give up! Great workout!
Look at those feet go!
They didn't stop!
The children have been very excited this week as we have had some very special visitors in school! We were lucky enough to have some beautiful Birds of Prey show us their flying skills. We saw a barn owl, a hawk, a sea eagle and even an eagle owl who doesn't like to fly!
We learned a lot in one morning. For example, did you know the sea eagle can live up to 70-80 years in captivity?! Or that if an Owl's eyes are orange then they hunt better at dawn and dusk? Amazing!
Birds of Prey Visitors!
