Last term, we learnt all about Chinese New Year. As part of our topic we visited a Chinese Restaurant. We loved the food so much we held a drop in cafe and invited family members into school to try Chinese food we cooked and prepared. We decorated our classroom with table cloths and menus. We made sweet and sour chicken, plain chicken, noodles, rice, curried vegetables and our very own prawn crackers! Here are some photos of us preparing the food and serving it. Whilst our family members were here we told them everything we have learnt about Chinese New Year. They were very impressed!
To celebrate Red Nose Day last month we dressed up either in pjamas, as superhereos or all in red!
In J3 we made Red Nose Day biscuits from scratch and decorated them with red icing. They tasted yummy!
Here are some photos of our exciting day...
Last week, Year 3 spent lots of time writing their letters to Santa Claus. We looked at the critical features of a letter and together wrote a Success Criteria for our letter. We wrote our first draft, making sure we didn't just write a list of things we wanted off Santa! Our teacher marked our letters and then we copied them up on to Christmas writing paper. Finally, we put our finished letters into an envelope, wrote Santa's address, stuck on our stamps and as a year group walked down to the postbox to post them off, singing Christmas carols on the way! Here are some photos of our walk and a photo of every one of us posting our letter! Hopefully Santa will have time to write back soon..
Thank you to all the parents who sent in a stamp or money towards one!
Today has been a very busy day! This morning we had a visit from Lee Jukes, who came to open our new Parent Partnership room and our Radio Station. We dressed up as Roald Dahl Characters and all took part in a Reading Cafe. Here are some photos of us in our costumes. We had a few Charlie Buckets and Veruca Salts! See if you can guess who else showed up in J3 today...
Year 3 throughly enjoyed a step back in time to a Medieval Village set in 1350. We were shown around the village by Henry Hogg, the swineherd. Here are a few photos of J3 on our trip. Luckily the weather stayed dry and the sun came out!
Here are some photos of J3 researching the History of Bridgend using their excellent Historical Enquiry skills!
Recently in Year 3, we have been learning about our Locality - Bridgend.
Today we enjoyed a lovely afternoon at the Local History Centre. We looked at old photographs, maps, newspapers and much more, all giving us information on what Bridgend used to be like. We liked it there so much, we didn't want to leave. We would definitely recommend you take a visit. Watch this space for some photographs of the Historians in our class.
Well done J3 for your superb behaviour at the History Centre and walking down there and back very sensibly!
Miss Wickers :)

Thank you to all parents and family who came to watch and helped with the costumes.
