Bumblebees Class 

Superhero Day!

On Tuesday Bumblebees had the most exciting day ever! We got to dress up as a superhero that we had invented ourselves! We created our costumes as part of our Topic homework and then we did some special superhero jobs at school! 

We started off by looking at a timeline of comic books, we discovered when our favourite superheroes were first invented! We then had our very own fashion parade in the hall with Dragonflies to show off our amazing costumes.

In the afternoon we did some Superhero PE (Superhero Simon Says!) and we designed our own superhero masks which we are going to make using felt later on in the half term.

Have a look at our amazing costumes below!

Bumblebees Trip to the Library!

Last Friday, Bumblebees and Dragonflies went on their first adventure to Bitterne Library! We walked all the way there and then we were incredibly lucky to explore the library. The librarian told us all about how to find the books we like and the difference between fiction and non-fiction books. We then got the chance to have a look at the books and we even got to choose one to bring back to school!

Sensational Science!

In Science this half term we have been learning about Animals including humans. We have begun to investigate what our bodies are made up of and how we move. We have looked at different types of skeletons that animals have as well as the scientific names of  the bones in our bodies.

The children had a go at creating their own skeletons and some challenged themselves to name the bones with their scientific names!

Excellent English!

In English we have been looking at stories with morals. We started by looking at Oliver Jeffers books and then we retold the story of The Boy who Cried Wolf.

Now, it was our turn to write our own stories with morals! Our moral was 'treat others how you wish to be treated'. The children planned their stories using a lion, mouse and an owl as their main characters.

We retold the story using our plans and actions to help us remember what happened. Take a look at us acting out our stories!

Literary Heroes Topic Launch!

Bumblebees began their Literary Heroes topic by exploring different ways of writing. During our fun morning all the children could investigate using a quill with ink, stamps, clay, chalk and writing their name in different languages that have different letter shapes and even hieroglyphics. 
All the children were so engaged with what they were doing and it was a super start to their first Year 3 topic!

Secrets of Success!

We spent lots of time together in Bumblebees Class talking about our school secrets of success and what the children think are the most important things we need to focus on.

These are what we chose!

Bumblebees Class of 2021!

These first few weeks in Bumblebees Class have been amazing!! We have been doing lots of mindfulness activities, team building games and some brilliant learning of course!

We've talked all about what sort of classroom we want to learn in and how we are going to achieve this! The children have worked so hard and we are all excited for what this year brings!

Take a look at our first photos as Year 3s!
