Dosbarth Rheidol Show and See

On Wednesday 5th December, Dosbarth Rheidol welcomed our families to join us for a roarsome afternoon at Show and See. This was an opportunity for us to showcase all of our fantastic learning we have done during our Beachcombers and Land Ahoy topic this term.

As always, the golden rule for Show and See afternoons is ‘all grown-ups must join in with our favourite 5-a-day routine.’ So we started the afternoon dancing and singing to  the pirate video, as we had enjoyed learning the song and dance moves to this during our topic. Our parents tried really hard to copy the moves and follow the instructions.

Then we had a chance to share our learning within our indoor and outdoor classroom, with our grown-ups.

We enjoyed programming the Beebot, making symmetrical buildings in our builder’s yard and racing our grown ups against the sand timer in our 100 square challenge.

We constructed an electric circuit and tested which materials would allow the electricity to flow through it to keep the bulb lit up. We discovered tinfoil and the fork were the best objects.

Also, we got into the Christmas spirit by writing Christmas lists to Father Christmas, creating Christmas wreaths and Christmas themed paintings using the technique we learnt this term – ‘Pointilism’

Finally, we ended our afternoon by performing our ‘Under the Sea’ dance to our grown-ups. We have worked hard on this dance during the Autumn term, learning techniques such as mirroring, shadowing and canon. We also used ribbons throughout our choreography. Check out our Twitter post for a video of our dance!

Year 3 Visit from Warburtons

We watched a video about how the bread is made from the wheat in the field to the packaged bread in the supermarket.

We then learned about the Eat Well Plate and talked about the different food groups and how much we should eat from each. We were reminded about food hygiene and all washed our hands and walked back to class with “bakers’ hands”, placing one hand on top of the other, not touching anything else.

The ladies from Warburtons, Angela and Cheryl, then put our aprons and hair nets on for us.

Then we were able to make our sandwiches. We had to include at least 2 veg.

We had a great time and we were able to take home our sandwich, a certificate and a packet of Warburtons Thins. We were also given activity booklets that were left for us to do in lessons!
