It is tradition to send each other Christmas cards and in the past we have greatly enjoyed filling our school postbox to the brim. However, due to the need for us to stay in our bubbles we are sending each other ‘Virtual Christmas Cards’, which means our messages of joy, peace and hope can reach more people than ever.
Whole School Art
Our class took part in the whole school art project that focused on the values of Hope, Joy, Peace, Forgiveness, Dignity and Respect, Wisdom and Community.
Each member of our school community has contributed to this project. We all wrote on a feather and displayed our giant angel wings as a sign of unity and togetherness.
We wrote message on each of the feathers.
The G3 messages on Forgiveness and Dignity read:
'Forgiveness is a gift that people give. It makes you feel great and as if you are surrounded by peace.' Jamie
'Forgiveness is something that we can all do for each other. Don't hesitate to forgive.' Michael
'No matter a persons age, gender or race always show others dignity and respect. Treat others how you would wish to be treated.' Harper
'Dignity and respect is showing kindness to others. ' Harriet

Andy Warhol Inspired Art
We have studied the work of Andy Warhol and have been inspired to create our own artwork based on his repeating patterns. We have discovered that Andy Warhol was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as 'Pop Art'.
We created our own designs based on the Statue of Liberty, an iconic landmark that we have been studying as part of our Geography topic. We hope that you like them and perhaps even feel inspired to try some of your own artwork!
We Will Remember Them...
The children of G3 took part in the Remembrance Service on Wednesday morning at 11am. The whole school fell silent as all pupils had a moment of reflection. As you can see from the display outside the G3 classroom, We Will Remember Them. The children also wrote Peace Poems as part of their Literacy Learning.
Felt Poppy Display
The children in G3 have settled back to school really well and have adapted to the new routines. It really is great to have everyone back.
During our first few days back at school we have been learning about puffins.
These really are incredible seabirds who have very bright orange beaks and webbed feet. Puffins are one of the few birds that have the ability to hold several small fish in their bills at a time. Their raspy tongues and spiny palates allow them to firmly grasp 10 to 12 fish during one foraging trip.
As you can see everyone was keen to write about the facts they have discovered. The children feel proud to see their work up on the wall of their classroom. We look forward to sharing more work with you next week!
I hope that you are all well. I am writing to you to apologise to those of you that have been unable to access the Loom video for today. I have contacted the Loom help desk and am awaiting their response to see what can be done about the video.
In the meantime please feel free to contact me via Mrs Clifton in the office with any questions that you might have about the work today. My apologies for any inconvenience caused and I hope to have an update from Loom very soon for you all.

I hope that you embrace this opportunity to enjoy learning at home, work hard and have fun.
We have have all really enjoyed our recent work in D.T designing money containers. We carefully considered our designs thinking about stitches, fasteners and materials. We created paper patterns from newspaper before cutting the material and stitching it together. Here are some of the finished products.

A Visit From Sandstorm
We had a visit from Sandstorm. Sandstorm is a baby cornsnake who belongs to one of the members of our class. We enjoyed asking lots of questions about having a snake as a pet. We found out that it takes a lot of hard work to look after a snake correctly.
This week in D.T we have been looking at designing money containers.
We have been practising our sewing skills in order to investigate which stitch is the strongest. We have also started to create patterns for our money container using newspaper.
This week we have been lucky enough to go to Moreton Morrell College. We were coached by the P.E students who taught us skills in netball, rugby and football. It was really good fun.
Practising Our Netball, Football and Rugby Skills at Moreton Morrell Collage.
This week in science we have been looking at the human digestive system. We used the I - pads to source information. We wrote about how the digestive system works in literacy.
G3 enjoyed camping on the school field on Friday evening . The children had a great time and so did the staff.

How much luggage for one night?
Having fun with our friends.
The Talent Show
This term in RE we have been looking at the Bible. We worked in pairs to understand the structure of the Bible.
For our Homework we chose our favourite story and retold it any way we wished.
Rachel our vicar came in to talk to us about how she uses the Bible as a Christian. We interviewed her and asked questions about how she uses the Bible professionally and how she uses it personally. We found her responses very interesting.
In science we have been looking at liquids and solids. We sorted and classified different objects into liquids and solids. We discussed the properties of a liquid and a solid.
We enjoyed making ancient Egyptian sweets called Tiger Nuts, they were delicious.
We have been learning about Ancient Egypt.
For homework we were asked to research Ancient Egyptian tools. We went over and above to make replicas of tools and Ancient Egyptian monuments
Take a look at some of the things we made.
We all had a fantastic Summer. Many of us sent postcards back to school so our friends would know what we had been up to over the holiday.
We displayed our postcards.
Welcome to G3. We created self portraits using watercolour paints. We built a class picture to show eveyone who is in G3.
History we have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons.
We have looked at where the Anglo-Saxons came from. What village life was like. How they built their homes and what Anglo-Saxon wore.

After a successful trip to see Wendy and Peter Pan at the RSC in Stratford. We were inspired to create out own puppet theatres.
We have really enjoyed building our igloo from the hundreds of milk bottles that everyone in our school helped to collect. We have enjoyed crawling inside this amazing space to read our books. We had great fun using the glue gun to ensure our structure stayed secure. We built our igloo at the hottest time of the year, at times during the build it got so hot we thought it might melt!
We hope you like it.
Watch our video and take a tour of of our sculptures. We think you'll be amazed. We created them as part of our homework. We are opening our garden on Monday 29th June and Thursday 2nd July between 3pm and 3:15pm so that you can take a closer look. G3 will be there to give you more information about how they were constructed.
Welcome all the Insects
We have created a special place for creatures to make their home. We were lucky enough to watch caterpillars hatching, they were so tiny and it made us realise what we had achieved with old pallets and unwanted bricks. We want to thank everyone who donated to our special project.
We have been building bug houses and hanging them in the tree so that bugs can shelter from the wind and rain. We planted pots to encourage bees and other pollinating insects into the garden. What do you think?
Friday 15th May
During our Science lessons we have been learning about Light. We have designed our own glasses to protect our eyes from harmful UV rays of the sun. Take a look at what we have written too. I'm sure you'll agree that these glasses are the ultimate must have item for the summer!
Maths challenges that really take teamwork!
We have been really busy thinking about what qualities and skills a good leader should have. We designed our own manifestos and voted democratically for who should run our class on Friday 8th May. The results were close but the Educational Owls were elected and organised a morning of Maths, Art and PE. Take a look at how busy we were.
Welcome to G3!
G3 is taught by Mrs Lisa Greenhalgh and Mrs Fiona Wilson is the teaching assistant.
