Year 3

Chick Blog: Saturday and Sunday.

The chicks have been very well behaved this weekend ... so far! They were all snuggled and asleep by 6:00pm on Friday night but by Saturday morning they had found their voices and Miss Carter was treated to a dawn chorus from her kitchen! The chicks are much more stable on their feet and have been running up and down the brooder, flapping their wings. They have been enjoying the sunshine and have discovered a new game, peck the side of the box! Miss Carter is hoping that they all sleep well again tonight and behave themselves on the journey back to school!

This week we have been looking after 6 beautiful chicks. Year 3 have really enjoyed watching them hatch and grow this week. On Monday we are going to name the chicks, so the chicks have each had their photo taken during the weekend. Have a peek below!

Year 3 have been learning about Shrove Tuesday and lent this week and have been thinking about acts of kindness that they could do during the week. Then children went outside, where they helped to set a fire and make a pancake. It was a bit smokey but the children all enjoyed eating the pancakes! Check out the pictures below!

The children had a fantastic time making pizza this week. They measured the water for the dough, prepared the yeast mixture and kneaded the bread for 10 minutes, which we found was quite a long time. They worked in small groups to shape and roll their pizza base and were covered in flour by the end of the afternoon! Thank you to all of the parents and carers for supplying the children with their ingredients. Check out some of the photos on the photo tab.

Year 3 had a fantastic, but very cold, trip to Matlock Meadows Farm on Friday. We were able to feed the sheep, goats and pig and saw some beautiful calves, who just wanted to lick the children! It was very interesting finding out about how the cows are looked after and how they are milked. Did you know that the cows are given their food twice a day, when they are milked? The home-made ice cream was delicious but it was a really hard choice choosing a flavour! 

 

Finally, we just wanted to say a big thank you to all of the parents who volunteered to help. We hope you enjoyed the day too!

Year 3 have had a fantastic week learning about their new topic, "Food Glorious Food". First, they learnt about how much sugar different foods contain and then they finished the week by learning how cheese is made. The children traced this process right back to cows eating grass in the fields, which has made them really excited about our trip to Matlock Meadows on Friday. They also had a go at churning cream into butter (and buttermilk) using some double cream, a jam jar and plenty of slow grease!
