Beechcroft Infants School


Class 3

Welcome to Class 3!

Summer Term 1 in Class 3 - We had great fun celebrating the coronation this week and looked absolutely fantastic on our red, white and blue day. We have been practising two cutting techniques in DT. In PE with Mr Robertson we have been practising our skill of controlling the ball along the floor. In RE we have been looking at the difference between baptism in the Islamic and Christian communities and using our playdough to remind us of key aspects of these events. This week in PE we have been learning to ‘snatch’ the ball which is another word for ‘intercepting.’ WC 15th May In PE with Mr Robertson we got into handball matches. We had to remember all of the rules and practise our throwing and defending skills. In science we planted cress and are investigating what happens to plants in different conditions. We have made predictions and are looking forward to seeing if we are correct or not.

In PE, we have been thinking about invasion games. We were practising our chest passes and what our hands should look like when we are ready to catch the ball. Ask me what else I know! In English we have been learning the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We have been hot seating each other, practising being the roles of the different characters from the story.
