We had a fantastic day out at Chester zoo.
We started the day by visiting the rhinos and it was great to see the animal up close after learning so much about it.
We then tried our best to see as many other animals as we could.
We braved the bat cave and got to see a cheetah up close.
We all had a lot of fun!
For the start of Global week we have been looking at endangered animals.
The focus for year 3 is the rhino.
Today we looked at the different continents were the rhinos live and found out how many are left in each place.
We also created our own rhino art pieces using water colours to decorate the background of a rhino outline.
In Literacy we have been looking at calligram and shape poems.
We wrote our own poems based around the 4 seasons and then chose our favourite season to turn into a calligram.
In our No Outsiders lessons we read the story 'This is my house' by Michael Rosen which was all about a boy who wouldn't allow children into his house because they were too small or wore glasses.
We discussed how this was discrimination and how this can make people feel.
We then made posters showing how our school invites everyone in and how we take care of others.
We  have been looking at money this term in maths.
We looked at the different values of the coins and notes and had to find different ways of making the same amount with different coins.
