On Tuesday, Lions class dressed up and had an experience day as Victorians. Children were given new names, chalk and chants to learn. Mrs Champness played the part of the strict school mistress; inspecting cleanliness of hands, teaching the rules, taking drill, making gruel, and walking about with the cane! The class played as factory workers, watched scenes from the movie Oliver, and listened to tales of a school room. Costumes intrigued children from other years and adults on school tours were entertained! Year 1s had time with Year 5s at the end of the day to share their knowledge about Charles Dickens and listen to facts about the 1800s. Well done to all.
We recently invited RDJ Reptiles to bring some animals into Year 3 so that we could continue our learning about skeletons and muscles. Jay spoke to us all about Savannah Monitors, Bearded Dragons, Chameleons, Boa Constrictors and Burmese Pythons. We had a chance to feel how snakes move their bodies and discussed how they use thousands of muscles to move themselves (humans only have about 600). After feeling their muscles and their spine, we then tried to draw what we thought a snake's skeleton may look like, before we looked at pictures on the computer to compare our ideas.
