What fun we have had this week. We were all fascinated by the work of Escher and we have learned how to do our own tessellations! I have uploaded lots of the pictures on to our website – so I hope you enjoy them!
Well done everyone – you worked really hard and didn’t give up, even if you found it a bit challenging at times….. and now we all feel proud of our fabulous pictures.

It is great to see some of the children in Year 3 still blogging, and it was fabulous to get a message from Micklefield Class 2 this week. Micklefield – we will blog back soon! and we will show you our pictures too!
Year 3 – dont forget – when you blog or comment it goes to my email box first – I read it and then publish it to the blog – so sometimes it takes a day or so…. if I’m busy and havent had a chance to check my emails. So dont give up – keep putting your comments and messages on. To put a post on you need to remember your username and password from year 2, but you can always click comment, if you havent got one.
Thanks again – Miss Teacher

What a busy week we have all had! In Maths it has been amazing learning all those 2D and 3D shapes. We really enjoyed the song, and now we know the names of 2D shapes – all the way up to the 10 sided decagon! You have build some great 3D models – especially making the dodecahedron! In the Creative Sessions we have started to find out about Escher and how he used maths in his art. We learned that a tessellation is a repeated pattern with no overlaps or gaps! We worked in groups to make an a tessellation of the lizard that appears in some of Escher’s pictures – you all worked really hard and everyone tried to cut them out very carefully so that we didn’t get any gaps in our tessellations! Then we all made the cubes with the tessellating fish pattern on them – you coloured so carefully and now they look amazing hanging up in the classroom.
In Literacy this week, we have worked on a report about Tropical World. Now this week we are going to find out all about the animals that are awake when we are fast asleep! They are called Nocturnal animals….. like the Nocturnal Zone that we visited in Tropical World! I’m sure we will learn lots of amazing facts about them! One great way to find out about Nocturnal Animals is to click on the link in the website list at the side of this page… it will take you to lots of great information sites.
Well done everyone – keep being the best you can be! Miss Teacher

In Tropical there are some large snakes,Butterflies and Tropical World is part of Roundhay park in leeds. Children will find the Australasia Hot and steamy near the Waterfall will help them to cool down. In glass displays you will see lizardd,spiny,mice,snakes and other amazing creatures.Nocturnal animals sleepn when it is light and are awake when it is dark. The plants in the Desrt House need very little water to live. In the Butterfly House there are some fish coc0oons and it is fun. There are big orange fish called koi carp

The Gruffalo is hairy, scary, fat, big, and as smelly as a stincky bin. HE is as
greedy as Mr Greedy. The Gruffalo has a poisonus wart at the end of his
nose. He has scary claws and truned out toes. The Gruffalo has a black
tongue and big horns. He has purple prickals all over his back. His eyes are
evil like orange balls of fire. He is chubby too! The Gruffalo has knobbly
knees az well. Did you know that the Gruffalo was scared of the mouse?

We have had a great couple of weeks finding out all about the Gruffalo and the Gruffalo’s child. Your clay models look fantastic! I can’t wait to see them finished later this week when we paint on the purple prickles, the terrible, green, poisonous wart, the orange eyes, like pools of fire and his long, black tongue! The trees that you made in your groups are amazing. I must try and find time to get some photos taken and put on the web for everyone to see.
This week we have our special trips out to Roundhay Park and Tropical World. We will catch the bus together and have lots of fun exploring the park and then looking at all the fascinating creatures in Tropical World. Did you know that there are some baby meerkats at Tropical World? I’m also looking forward to going into the Nocturnal part – thatsthe bit where it is all dark!!!! It can be a bit scary, but it will remind us what it must have been like for the Gruffalo child when she crept out into the woods at night! We will see some of the animals that are awake when we are all asleep!
Well done again to lots of you for your fantastic scores on Mathletics! Saniyyah is our winner in class this week with over 5,000 points! Also we have had some more Gold Certificates and there are a few children who are now working to get their 2nd Gold before the end of the summer term! That will be a truly incredible achievement! So keep on being the best you can be and remember to AIM HIGH!

The Gruffalo child thinks that the mouse has orange eyes like pooles of fire. He thinks that he has a long tail as long as a snake. The Gruffalo child thought that his viskers are stronger then wire. The Gruffalo child thought the mouse is stronger then a monster.

The Gruffalo Child thinks the mouse is a giant but real mouse is clever and small and big bad mouse tall. The Gruffalo Child thinks the big bad mouse is big,enomsmas,giant and homfaring but the real mouse is shy and good. His eyes are like poops of fire. Do you kown the big bad mouse has big eyes but the real mouse has small biack eyes. The real mouse eat cheese but the big bad mouse eat Gruffalo pie.
