 Final Homework as a Year 3 – 23.7.14
Your Task is to share our class webpage with friends and family over the holidays. When we come back in September it will all be deleted ready for the next York Class. You have all worked super hard this year and have done many wonderful things to be really proud of.
So celebrate what you’ve been doing by sharing the class page with as many people as you can, print any photos that you want to keep, print any activities that you want to try out and explore the online web links and games. There’s lots on here that will keep you, your friends and family busy over the holidays on those wet, rainy days!

York's Wonderful Wildlife Webpage

Hello and welcome to our webpage which is all about wildlife. Our topic this term has been all about plants and animals. We have really enjoyed exploring and finding out about our topic. We've created this webpage to help others learn more about wildlife in Britain.

Below you will be able to read about what we've been up to in school and activities that you can try at home. You will be able to read our wildlife blogs and see our photo gallery. We will show you ways of helping wildlife at home and then you can explore the web links that we have attached at the bottom of the page. 

Hope you enjoy our amazing webpage!

We all came dressed in blue today for the National Autistic Awareness Day. Part of the day was also dedicated to learning all about children's Rights and Responsibilities. Our class focused on;

Every child has the right to special care for special needs. 

We also learnt that it is;

our respobsibility to be the best we can be. 

We enjoyed reading a story about the tiny acorn that grew into an enormous Oak Tree. After, we watched a time lapse video of a growing Oak tree, which can take over 150 years! Together we painted a large tree to remind us that it is important to have high aspirations like the tiny acorn in our story. We then wrote our big aims and aspirations for ouselves on the Oak Tree Leaves. You will soon be able to see our finished tree on display in the hall!

Wow! We have had a very busy Science Week and we love doing science in our class! Our 'Big Science Question' is; "How can we protect plants and animals for the future?" We have enjoyed researching and exploring endangered animals from around the world and looking at what we can do to help save these animals from extinction. Did you know that 80% of the world's habitat is deep down in our seas? 

 We also looked at how scientists record the population of these animals to help inform them when they might become endagered. So we carried out a 'Mark and Recapture' experiment using pasta. Take a look at some of our investigation photos! You can also take a look at our Mad Science Photos, where we are building robots for our Jitterbug battles!

We are really looking forward to the summer term as we will be continuing our 'Big Science Question' in our new science topic, which is all about Plants and Animals.

Here is a little taster of what we will be doing: We will be carrying out our own caterpillar search using the methods we've learnt already. We are then going to try and hatch our own butterflies! Once our butterflies have hatched, we will make our own butterfly feeders to help attract more butterflies to our school grounds.

We will also be taking part in a very exciting Bug Watch and we will make and maintain our own class wormery, which we know helps plants to grow.

Later on in the term we will make a Team Trail, which is like a treausre hunt for ants! We can't wait for that!
And lastly, of course, we will be growing our own vegetables and plants to sell at the summer fair.

As you can see, York Class and Eco Club are doing our very best to help protect plants and animals for the future. So please keep an eye on our class page over the summer as we will give you tips on how you too, at home, can do more to help!!!

We presented our Excitingly Energetic Egyptian Assembly to the rest of the school and parents today! We have thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the Egyptians and are a little sad that our topic is coming to an end!  Everyone was super proud of our confidence, subject knowledge and over all presentation of our assembly. They particularly enjoyed our live mummification during our performance!

Unfortunately, due to technical faults we don't have any pictures to show you from our class assembly but we have put a few pictures from our fun pyramid building afternoon. You can also take a look at our Assembly PowePoints that we used for our assembly at the bottom of our class page and there is also Maya and Dylan's; 'Story of Moses' PowerPoint, for you take a look at and enjoy reading!

Today we celebrated World Book Day! We had so much fun dressing up as our favourite characters, sharing our favourite books and taking part in a variety of fun games and activities all linked to children's books, for instance we enjoyed designing our bookmarks for the World Book Day Fest competition and we also had lots of fun playing the Mr Stink Game! We definitely love books in our class!

 Have a look at our pictures below so you can see our wonderful character costumes!!!
