Computing

We have focused on ‘Taking the perfect photo’ this half term.  We made our photos rules, tested them out then made posters using the app ‘PicCollage’.

We had a fun session where we looked at perspective photography and had a mission to create some of our own!  We discussed how someone needed to be far away to look small and someone needed to be right in front of the iPad to look larger.  The final results were fabulous.

E-safety

Many children in Frimley enjoy playing multiplayer games online, such as Roblox, Minecraft and Fortnite which allow children to chat to other players. Although we don’t encourage year 3 children to play games which have an age rating of 8 or 9 plus we are aware that they do play them and they do use the chat feature. 

Due to this we spent this half term talking to the children about using the chat feature safely.  We discussed that the people they talk to are strangers (it was interesting how many children didn’t see them as strangers initially as they are are ‘just words on a screen’).  We reminded ourselves of stranger danger and why we NEVER share personal information online, even with our friends as others can see it.  We also discussed people aren’t always who they say they are online.  

To help us remember how to be safe online we made posters on the app KEYNOTE.  We shrunk our posters to make into key rings so we can always keep the reminder on us.

Spring 1 2018/2019 Rockin’ and Rollin’

Year 3 have been looking at cave art this week.  They used horse hair and sticks to make their own paint brushes then made their own paint.  We spoke about how amazing Caveman art is and how they achieved that with home made brushes, rocky walls and only fire light to work from.  We decided to see for ourselves how tricky it was by being cavemen;  We took our paper and pencils and drew our cave art from underneath our tables!  We turned off the lights, pulled the blinds and used torches to represent the fire light.

SCRATCH

In computing we created a project in scratch called ‘The Smoking Car Game’  We had to create a car, put in the correct coding blocks to make it move, draw backgrounds with tracks, then look at what coding we needed to make the car leave a coloured trail.  After exploring the coding blocks the children started to understand how we could put them together to give the game instructions.  We had some fantastic games made. 

This link should allow you to try some of the Year 3 and 4 games online

Christmas Emoji Quiz

We have spent this half term working on computer, mouse and keyboard skills.  To celebrate our new typing skills we typed Christmas Carols on the iPads, using the KEYNOTE app, and substituted words for emojis. Can you guess the carol or song?

We then used our emojis to make a Christmas quiz.  Can you guess the film, song or Christmas saying?

Dragon Eyes 

Year 3 have been busy designing and drawing Dragon Eyes, then they had the fun job of making them out of clay.  We think they look amazing.

Dragon Stories

We have been busy writing Dragon stories in Year 3, we worked hard on our descriptive language and sentence starters.  The best part was when we got to film each other on the ipads while we read our stories.

Power Point

Year 3 have been in the Discovery Zone for the past 2 weeks exploring Power Point.  Many children have only used laptops and tablets so using a mouse was a tricky experience!  We looked at how to add text, online images and animations to make a power point about the things we like.  Here are a few examples;

OSCAR      Louis       ETHAN

chloe       Aniela        all about me bella

I have been impressed with the amount of children who are telling me that they have started to make power point presentations at home in their spare time.

E-Safety Posters  – Tell A Trusted Adult

Year 3 have worked hard using the keynote app.  It took us a few weeks to navigate around the app but we have produced some amazing posters along the theme of making sure you tell an adult if you are scared, worried or concerned when online.

We read the story Penguinpig to introduce our E-safety topic.  The book focused on not believing everything we read on the web and also how we need to tell a trusted adult if we are worried, scared or concerned.  We each listed 5 trusted adults in our lives.

We used the app ‘Texting Story’ to introduce how we can approach trusted adults to ask for help and to confirm that adults will help us and support us.

Butser Ancient Farm 

On Thursday, Year 3 stepped back in time when they visited Butser Ancient Farm, nestled in the South Downs National Park. The children had a unique experience, exploring first hand ancient buildings based on real sites dating from Stone Age through to the Iron Age.

image011  image009

At Butser farm we did some fantastic activities with amazing helpers. When we had finished our jobs we had lunch in an awesome hut, that I think stone- age people used a long time ago. In stone age times they had to kill animals for food, they also needed animal skins for warmth. For beds they used stone, not wood. Also for bedcovers they used animal skins, like the duvet covers we use today. After lunch we did another fun job called wattling, the other jobs were colouring in chalk and making gold rings that were made of gold wire, I loved making the gold rings. Next we all tried archaeology, I liked this because you got to dig in a square and find something, then you needed to scrub your object with a toothbrush, that’s why I like archaeology.

Butser Ancient Farm is a wonderful, hands on experience, which brings History to life for both children and adults. The children have all gone home with some wonderful memories and such a deeper understanding of the Stone Age through to Iron Age.
