Year 3CB: Blog items

Good morning Ravensbury!
I'm just getting my shopping list ready and was looking up some Easter baking receipes I thought my children would enjoy over these next couple of weeks. There are some lovely ideas on the BBC Good Food website, and thought you might like to have a go at some Easter baking too!
Really, I'm hoping to make Hot Cross Buns for the first time - but that all depends on whether I can buy some bread flour, and the flour aisle in the shops has been pretty empty! Perhaps I'll find some today!
Wishing you all a lovely Easter (and happy baking!),

Here is some more of the fantastic work 3LF have been completing at home.

Happy Friday everyone and well done for learning at home for 2 whole weeks! As strange as I've found it not being at school, the time has flown by for me so I hope it feels the same for you.
I'm going to do one final wellbeing challenge for today and then take a break for the next 2 weeks for the Easter holiday. However, check back on Monday morning as over the weekend I am going to set you a little wellbeing project in case anyone wants an Easter challenge.
Since it's the end of the week, today's challenge is to relax and get ready for the weekend so I want everyone to do a guided meditation. This is when you close your eyes and listen to a lovely soothing voice transport you to somewhere new. They are great for helping you to sleep or if you just want to relax at the end of your learning.
There are plenty available on Youtube, here are a few of my favourites:
Secret treehouse - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWOHcGF1Tmc
Spaceship to the moon - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mV9BBR1RoGg
Hot air balloon ride - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlv6Y1tq1sQ
Have a great Easter holiday and don't forget to check back for the challenge next week if you think you'd like to do it. I'll be back with a daily challenge from Monday the 20th of April if we're still at home then.
Thank you to Mrs Ganner for sending me a photo of her daughter completing the baking challenge from earlier in the week, it looks amazing and has made me want to bake something chocolately myself this weekend! I think I might make some brownies as a treat for my husband!

I hope you're all still working hard and staying safe. Thanks to both children and staff who've been e-mailing me pictures of their wellbeing challenges, it's really cheering me up! I've included some at the bottom of my post again.
Today's wellbeing challenge is all about yoga. Yoga is a great way to relax and escape for a while and it's good for both your bodies and minds. I like to put on some relaxing music while I do it and am lucky enough to have a lovely bright pink yoga mat too as otherwise I'd be on a hard wooden floor. A carpet, rug or blanket would work just as well though.
There's a great channel on Youtube called Cosmic Kids that does lots of different fun yoga sessions: https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga (I know that Miss Bryce's class have done some of these sessions and we did some school last week too so some of you are already great at it!)
Any adults reading, or maybe older children who fancy something a bit more difficult could have a go at this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTANio_2E0Q
Here I am below doing the bound ankle pose :-)
Remember to let us know how you get on!
Thanks Ferdows in reception who has e-mailed in a picture of his origami rabbit from yesterdays challenge, I love it!
Another thank you to Mrs Iqbal and her son Adam who did the baking challenge from Tuesday and made this delicious looking chocolate cake!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
I don't know about you but 2 of my favourite things in the world that always make me feel good are animals and travelling. While I can't travel now, I thankfully have my 2 rabbits, Rupert and Angel, to keep me company at home. Here is a picture of them underneath!
So since I can't travel right now, or see any other animals, I am doing these things in a different way: by looking at this website all about wild animals around the world https://gowild.wwf.org.uk/
It has information and activities about lots of different animals from lots of different regions (Year 2, it has a section on Polar animals which would link nicely to your topic right now!) so you can virtually travel round the world. It even has drawing and photography competitions that you can enter and have your work appear on the website!
I particularly like this activity to make Amazon animal hand shadows https://gowild.wwf.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/Amazon-hand-shadows.pdf (although I didn't have much luck trying to take a good photo of mine. Perhaps you can do better than me and send one to your home learning address?)
So your wellbeing challenge for today is to choose your favourite area or animal from the website or even complete one of the activities and send a picture or just a bit of writing about it to your home learning e-mail address if you would like to. Or pehaps enter one of the competitions on there and tell us all about it.
A big thanks to Zainab in reception for sending in a picture of her brownies. Well done Zainab, they looked delicious!
And thanks to Miss Iqbal who sent me her picture of what makes her and her family smile that she did wih her son Adam! You can see it below:

Today's challenge is something that I often enjoy doing when I'm feeling a little sad or worried about something.
Today I am challenging you to cook or bake something! If you can't do it today then why not plan something to make later in the week or even at the weekend?
Take a look at this website that has plenty of easy and healthy recipes to look or see if you can invent something that includes the contents of your fridge or cupboard! https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/recipes
Yesterday I made these cheese scones for me and my husband to have for lunch this week (they're not very healthy but they're very tasty and it's okay to have a little treat once in a while! )
Make sure you ask an adult to help you with any cooking or cutting and don't do anything before you check it's okay!
A big thanks to Miss Kenwell for sending me a picture of her sunshine yesterday (pictured below), she put my drawing to shame!
Date: 30th Mar 2020 @ 11:42am
Today's challenge is to draw your own sunshine then in the middle of it write or draw all the things that make you happy.
I've done one if you would like to look at it for ideas (although your drawings may be a little better than mine! ) and have focused on all the things I can still do or see, even while we're in this strange situation .
Stay safe everyone,

Hello, Mrs Glover here!
I hope everyone is staying safe, having fun and working hard on your learning. I'm going to post a Health and Wellbeing Challenge every day for people to do if they choose to. I'll be doing them all too and posting pictures where I can. Please feel free to e-mail any pictures or comments to your home learning e-mail addresses!
Challenge number 1: Go on a mindfulness walk. Write or draw 5 things that you can see, hear, feel, smell or touch (make sure you have an adult with you if necessary and stay far way from people you may see when you're out, although you can still say a friendly hello!) You could even do this in your garden if you have one!
Here's a picture of my mindfulness walk that I went on at lunch time today!
I saw trees and water, I heard birds and rustling, I could smell different plants and I could feel the sun on my face :-)

Hello again everyone!
I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying all the home learning your teachers have been giving you to do. I have seen some of your emails and it looks like you are doing brilliantly so well done! I have been working away at home, I start every morning with the Joe Wicks work out, I wonder how many of you have been doing it too. Remember it’s so important to keep active even when you are at home.
I had another thought, yesterday Penny helped me with the washing, we paired the socks together! I thought this is a good time for you all to be helping out your grown-ups at home. I am sure they would really appreciate it.
I miss you all so much and can't wait to get back to school.

Monday 23rd March 2020
Good morning everyone I hope you are all up and looking forward to a day of learning at home. It is a beautiful day perhaps you can have some time in the garden. I am sorry that I wasn't in school last week, both the government and Mrs Hughes advised that I stay at home but please don't worry I am not sick! I really do miss you all, I was so enjoying going around all the school and teaching so many of you, what amazing children you are.
Year 6 I am especially sorry that we have not had the chance to say goodbye. I remember you all so fondly from year 4 and wish you well with all that the future holds. I believe that each and every one of you has a special future and encourage to grab every opportunity that life gives you. Work hard at high school it will be so worth it.
For everybody else I look forward to seeing you soon - imagine how great that first day will be when we are allowed back into school. I can't wait! I have seen that Joe Wicks is doing a PE lesson every morning on line, I would encourage you to join in its so important that you stay active even when you are stuck inside.
Stay safe and I will see you soon.
Love Mrs Turner (Hibbs)

In PE we created our own Roman dances. We combined different movements and created a sequence of the movements.
Date: 9th Mar 2020 @ 2:39pm
To launch our new connected curriculum topic about the Romans we had a Roman banquet. We tasted a range of food that Romans would have eaten. Some of it was delicious and some we enjoyed less.

This week in maths, we have been learning about different types of angles. Today in maths we went on a hunt for right angles.
Date: 25th Feb 2020 @ 3:11pm
This week we worked with the artist. We discovered that many artefacts left behind from the Romans had images of peacocks on. We practiced line drawing and using oil pastels to create patterns inspired by peacocks. Here is some of the work we created. Next week, we will be turning our designs into a textile.
Date: 24th Feb 2020 @ 2:58pm
In science, we have been learning all about food chains. Here are some websites to help us practice.
Date: 12th Feb 2020 @ 10:31am
For our experience in the connected curriculum, we created our own quiz about rocks. We used our prior knowledge and filmed the questions and answers on ipads. We then went and asked the questions to year 4 to see what they could remember from last year.
Date: 3rd Feb 2020 @ 3:55pm
In design technology, we researched, designed, made and evaluated our own Stone Age homes. Here are our final designs.
Date: 28th Jan 2020 @ 3:09pm
In the Connected Curriculum, we are making our own Stone Age homes. To start the design process we collected ideas. Here are some of the ideas we collected. Come back soon to see our final designs.
Date: 28th Jan 2020 @ 2:00pm
This week in maths we are learning written and mental methods for addition of money. Here is a website to help you practise at home.
Date: 13th Jan 2020 @ 12:08pm
In English, we are writing our own non-chronological reports about the Stone Age. We shared our expert knowledge with some reporters. They asked lots of interesting questions.
Date: 13th Jan 2020 @ 11:37am
For the launch of our Stone Age topic we made Stone Age homes. We used biscuits to make the homes which was very tricky as the biscuits didn't balance.
Date: 20th Nov 2019 @ 2:26pm
In science we have been learning all about magnets. We investigated if objects were magnetic or non-magnetic by using magnets.
Date: 18th Nov 2019 @ 3:15pm
In the connected curriculum we have been learning all about the spectacular Indian landmark the Taj Mahal. We found out lots of interesting facts and made our own pop up versions of the landmark.
