A Lion in Paris

a lion in paris book We have been learning about Paris this term.

On Monday, we listened to a story called “A Lion in Paris”.

In the story a lion from a zoo wanted to have an adventure so he decided to visit Paris. First he saw Eiffle Tower but he didn’t know it so called it “Iron Tower”. After the day, he went back to the tram station and on the side was a picture of a woman but he thought that it was a real person. In the end of the story he decided to climb onto a stone block and gave a happy Roaaaaar of joy and stayed there.

In Literacy,  we have written our version of this story but not with Lion so I chose bear. It was fun!

French topic day

On French day, in our classroom we solved puzzles to create famous French buildings and monuments and we ate a type of French food called croissants .Then we learnt how to ask  for  directions and answer back. Next we went into Tigers and learned how to say some of the characters from Jack and Beanstalk. We played two game of Bingo and Emma C won the both games! After break, we went into Jaguar class and learned funny songs about washing machines in French. We made up our own version of this song using French words of colours and clothes. Lastly, we went into Panthers class and completed the words search of body parts in French.

Christmas play

We’ve been learning all about other countries’ traditional Christmas celebrations, we learnt that all the countries have each a different way to celebrate Christmas, but they still celebrate the same  special baby. On the 25th of December the savour was born and brought peace and love to the world and gave friendship to us. In our Christmas play each county shares what they do on Christmas. We all had a part  to say because there are so many ways to celebrate Christmas. At the back of the stage we had a Nativity scene with the year threes in our class. We all had a great time learning  our lines and practising the hole play. If you watched we hope you enjoyed our play. We’ve  also been making different foods from different countries including  polish bread and Chinese dumplings.

This week we have been learning a lot about world war one. We have been finding out what it was like living in the trenches. As a class we read a diary account written by a real soldier in world war one. It was very hard to believe the conditions during the war. We learned about some of the terrible infections suffered by soldiers in the war like trench foot and frost bite.

Camera Kids!

On the 22nd of October Camera Kids came in to talk to us about cameras and taking good photos. We had a lot of fun taking the pictures but more fun choosing our best one though. We also did a unexpected experiment by putting little droplets of water on a CD and then shining some brightly coloured lights over them. We found out that they shone like real lights!

Wet Play Fun!

As autumn has properly arrived, we often have been having indoor playtimes. Yet, the cold rain cannot stop us having fun!

Daniel and Dougie made this fantastic model using the wooden blocks on Thursday lunchtime. “This is almost perfectly symmetrical!” said the boys. Elsewhere, children have been enjoying to draw, to make models with Lego, to play chess or simply to read favourite books.
