Year 3 Alder

Alder Assembly - Friday 13th February 2015

Alder class presented an amazing assembly on the Romans. This was produced after the Oakwood Romans invaded Beechwood! The Alder Romans demonstrated their historical knowledge about Roman life and customs during their informative and entertaining assembly. (Ask the children what the sponge was used for?!)

Badger class came up to Alder and read their character descriptions to us. Then we read our myth stories to them. Here we all are sharing reading together.

Sports for Schools

As well as being a fantastic physical experience, this fun-filled circuit training raised a whopping £1380.10.  After we had covered the external costs, Oakwood benefited from a large amount which has been used to buy PE equipment such as new hurdles, speed-bounce mats and footballs.  Alder class was heavily involved in the financial administration.  We counted the money and recorded each person's contribution which made it much easier for the office to collate. It was a useful, practical context to our Maths work on money and helping the children learn the value of money.

I've never seen so much money!

Decorations Morning 2014

 

We hope you enjoyed the organized chaos that was Decorations Morning!  Alder completed a series of creative activities that resulted in some lovely decorations to take home for Christmas and a silhouette city skyline calendar to put up in the kitchen.  Thanks to all those brave adults who came into help and sorry for the trail of glitter that you are probably still vacuuming up!

Everyone working together like Christmas elves!

Making Potions

We finished off our 'Potions' topic by mixing up some of the vilest concoctions known to mankind.  Taking our cue from Roald Dahl's 'The Twits', we mixed plants, herbs, spices and colour dyes together in our own potion bottles to create some truly disgusting potions.  If they hadn't smelt so disgusting and started to go mouldy we might have brought them home!  This helped us to write a set of instructions for a potion which would change things for Cinderella and send her to that ball.  Using Pie Corbett's 'Talk for Writing', we innovated bits to include more of our own ideas.

Is this medicine or poison?
