Alien or Hoax?

On Wednesday 11th July, some strange events unfolded at Tylers Green Middle School. On arrival at school, Miss Baker and Mrs Rutland were approached by Mr Hazell, the school Caretaker. He explained how he had seen flashing lights and heard odd noises at around 3.00am so he had gone to investigate.

 

Minutes later, he discovered the cause of the disturbance (as he explains in his video). On the far end of the field, he found what he described as parts of a spaceship. However, we were unconvinced therefore Year 3 carried out further investigations throughout the morning to ascertain the factual evidence rather than opinions.

 

During the investigations the children collected evidence such as slime, cheerios and small fragments of metal. They also removed what seemed to be some sort of Laser Gun from one of the trees. 

 

By the end of the school day the question still remained, 'Was it real or was it a hoax?'

After closer inspection the children decided that it was a hoax.

 

Great detective work, Year 3!

 

 

On Tuesday 12th June, Year 3 had a buzzing, exciting day filled with activities relating to their Science topic on Plants. The day consisted of hands on learning across the two classrooms focusing on Flowers in 3BG and Bees in 3R. We had a local beekeeper, Mr Rutland present who spoke to the children about the importance of bees. Each class then participated in carousel activities such as viewing bees in an observation hive and asking questions about bees as well as sampling honey, trying on a bee suit, identifying seeds, painting observational drawings of flowers, visiting the garden area and much, much more. To finish off the day, the children all created a life-cycle of a sunflower wheel to take home and to share what they had learned with others. We would like to say a big thank you to Mr Rutland for sharing his hobby with us and High Wycombe Beekeepers Association (HWBKA) for the loan of their education material. If you would like to donate to this local charity please visit their website at www.hwbka.co.uk.

On Monday 14th May, Year 3 visited Shortenills in Chalfont St. Giles. The day consisted of lots of outdoor learning experiences using their senses as well as the environment around them. They participated in lots of team activities, collecting and creating things using items from the woods such as pine cones, twigs etc. They also enjoyed listening to extracts from Roald Dahl's book 'The Minpins' about tiny people who live in  the trees and glide around the tree tops on birds. They even created their very own 3D monsters and Minpin houses!

 

All the children had a brilliant day. A BIG thank you to the team at Shortenills and all our parent helpers for making it so interesting and enjoyable.

This term the children of Year 3 travelled back to Ancient Greece for a day.  The day started with the children arriving in their beautiful costumes. Then they all joined Dionesius in the Hall to learn about Ancient Greece through artifacts and the retelling of a Greek Myth.

 

After break, they were split into house groups and completed a carousel of activities up until break. The children loved the activities especially making pitta bread with the parent helpers. 

 

Next the children had a delicious Greek themed lunch of a selection of foods including pitta bread, juice, grapes, olives and hummus.

 

Finally, the classes competed in a mini Olympic Games between Athens and Sparta. All the children had a brilliant day.

Danger, there are Dinosaurs at TGMS!

 

On Thursday 21st September, Year 3 discovered dinosaurs in their school hall. Luckily, they weren't real so they could feel them and study them closely. In the morning, the children learnt all about dinosaurs,rocks and fossils by completing a fun quiz which encouraged them to search and investigate the exhibits to discover the answers. The hall was buzzing with excitement.

 

In the afternoon the children learnt about how fossils are made. Then they studied real fossils and drew them in great detail. The children will be using these excellent drawings next week when they design their own fossil to make out of air dry clay. It was a lovely day, the children and staff really enjoyed it. Maybe we have some future budding archaeologists in Year 3, you never know?
