Year 3 had a fantastic Roman Day on Tuesday to begin their Roman topic.
Ben from the Treehouse Theatre was fantastic in giving the children a top class performance with oodles of Roman history in a whistle-stop play. He provided props and costumes for the children to perform their part in the play. From elephants to Emperors and Gladiators, they each had a part to perform in the Roman performance.
Year 3 had a great day out at Stonehenge. We learnt a lot and despite the cold we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. All the children were fantastic representatives for FJS and were very well behaved and enthusiastic throughout the day. … Continue reading →
Today in 3DP the children shared their topic homework of their own underwater empire from a British coast and we had a fantastic assortment.
From creative box scenes, PowerPoint presentations and a cake, to a Youtube home video clip about seahorses and cuttlefish.
We learnt about basking sharks, jellyfish, cuttlefish and sponges to name just a few, as well as learning some information about the Mary Rose. One child did a fantastic project about plastic waste on our beaches, which created an interesting class discussion.
I was so impressed with what children knew and it was wonderful to hear about their own stories, which included a dad being nipped by a baby shark, and another story of how a fish was saved from being trapped in a plastic bag.
A team made up almost entirely of Fordingbridge Junior School boys were proud winners of the U9s Testway Youth Football League Oak Plate last weekend.
The boys – one from Year 3 and eight from Year 4 – really lived the school motto of Believe, Strive, Achieve in a very competitive final. They showed resilience and determination as well as great sportsmanship to achieve a 3-1 victory.
Year 3 have had a fun week learning about right angles and straight lines. It’s been quite a journey for some but by Friday we all managed to secure our knowledge.
Today (Friday), we took our learning out in the playground to apply our knowledge of ‘clockwise’, ‘anticlockwise’ ’90 degrees’ and ‘180 degrees’. Working in pairs, the children gave each other instructions to walk from one end of the playground to the other, first with eyes open, then eyes shut! It was very interesting and they all said it was the best Maths lesson ever! Well done Year 3.
A very special delivery arrived in 3CE on Wednesday, a package from the North Pole. Everyone received a letter and we couldn’t rip off the envelope quick enough to find out what was inside.
Year 3 had written letters to the Elves and we were so excited to get a personal reply. We loved hearing all about the Elves and thought it was great they had answered our questions from the letters to them.
