We have also taken part in some science experiments and did some weaving in creative curriculum.
This week class 3 have been taking part in a science experiment where we used friction surface to make a paper clip float in water. We created a chart to record our findings and made sure it was a fair test by using different factors such as size, colour and shape.
It took a lot of trying but we managed to do it!
We have also been looking at pronouns in GPS and have changed sentences to add them into our work.

We have started to learn the actions which we will be using to help us write our own mystery stories. We have also had a go at writing our names in Egyptian hieroglyph!
This week class 3 have been researching different news stories to help us write our news papers articles. We used sticky notes to pick out key information and then became a news line for our friends to read.

This week class 3 received a newspaper article called "Pirate Press" telling us that Captain Jelly Belly is shipwrecked on a tropical island! We were challenged to create a new pirate ship that he could sail around the world on. We are also using this to write in a journalistic style about news around the world.
This week class 3 had another visit from Captain Jelly Belly. He left us words to search for in the dictionary which helped us to discover a special treasure map! We then followed the map using our compasses and turns to find a special surprise!
We have also been designing our own maps and plotting co ordinates (using an X and Y axis) and using adverbial phrases in our GPS lessons.
This week class 3 enjoyed our trip to the Cooper Gallery where we sketched our favourite paintings from the gallery, looked at the way Picasso used printing and even made some prints of our own!
In class we have had a visit from Captain Jelly Belly the friendly pirate! We enjoyed following his hidden clues outside (even if he did make us jump at first) and found a special letter left on the X! We are now planning our letters to write back.
