Our enquiry: How and why did ancient Egyptians make mummies?
We've been learning how to use the grid method to efficiently multiply a two-digit number by a one-digit number...
Being a saint
After learning about St Francis of Assisi and exploring his prayer for peace, we read Pope Francis's description of a saint. Then, we reflected on our understanding of what it means to be a saint.
Where in the world is Egypt?
Working in pairs, we used an atlas to help us label a map of north-eastern Africa. We identified countries, cities and bodies of water.
Our enquiry: Are magnets magic?
As part of Online Safety Day, we played a game of emoji match-up. It wasn't as easy as we thought and we struggled to decide on some of the ideas and emotions being conveyed. After discussing how an emoji, though a fun way to communicate, could be misinterpreted or cause confusion, we had a go at designing our own emoji faces. Can you match the emoji to the emotion?
List of emotions: very happy, lucky, half asleep, extremely happy, frustrated, spooked, cheeky, loved, joyful, cool, tired, sad, really happy, emotional, adorable, super happy, annoyed

Our enquiry: What is the Place Between?
After plenty of practice and preparation, we were ready for our challenge. We cut, painted, sprayed and glittered and we were delighted with the magnificent results!
We skilfully blended brilliant blue, purple and black to create atmospheric backgrounds for the Place Between. But we're not finished yet... Visit again soon to marvel at our completed masterpieces!
For Golden Time, we had great fun modelling with the balloons Magic Mike generously left for us. We made dogs, hats and other crazy creations!
We're really enjoying our training sessions with the Bristol Basketball coaches. Check out our brilliant ball control!
Hand shadow puppets
Before creating hand shadow puppet templates ready for our enquiry challenge, we had fun attempting dog, bird and spider-shaped shadows using only our hands. Some of us even managed to make our dogs bark!
We're learning how to use noun phrases to add detail and interest the reader. Using a mysterious barrel organ and the mesmeric Abdul Kazam for inspiration, we created some fabulous noun phrases: an abandoned ark, a terrified boy, a mechanical monkey, a red-eyed crocodile, a fierce tiger, silver sparks, fluttering doves, a glowing ring, sparking stars and a cloud of colourful smoke.
We've been using pictures to help us partition three-digit numbers and understand the value of each digit. Take a look at our perfect presentation! Next, we'll be applying our knowledge of place value to compare and order numbers.
To launch our new enquiry, 'What is the Place Between?', Year 3 had a wonderful wow morning with Magic Mike. We all thought he was absolutely brilliant! First, we were treated to a marvellous magic show and then Magic Mike explained some tricks and illusions at a special magic workshop. Now, we're looking forward to immersing ourselves in our magical new class book, Leon and the Place Between. Let the magic begin...
'I enjoyed watching Magic Mike make a balloon hat with Cian. It made me smile!' (Daisy-Rose)
'It was a magical morning!' (Amelia)
'Magic Mike is the best magician ever! He is so funny!' (La'shay and Kasia)
'We had lots of fun learning Magic Mike's tricks.' (John-Paul)
'When I helped Magic Mike with a trick, every card I chose was Kasia's!' (Isobel)
'My favourite trick was the ripping paper trick. I've been practising it at home!' (Jody)
Baby Joel's baptism
To help us understand the rite of baptism, Father Jim kindly offered to role-play a baptism ceremony. Four children were assigned the roles of parents and godparents and we were all guests at the baptism of Baby Joel James Harris.
The Day the Crayons Quit
After reading the hilarious The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt, we created campaign slogans for the crayons and wrote letters of apology from Duncan. This provided us with the perfect opportunity to practise using full stops, capital letters, question marks and exclamation marks to demarcate sentences.
