World Book Day 2020

Miss Barnes’ class shared the book Home by Carson Ellis.  They talked about different homes and designed their own dream home.

Mrs Laws’ class explored a book by Sarah Maycock called Sometimes I feel.... They talked about how we sometimes feel and the similes we can use to express this. They then created their own simile poems and artwork in the same style as the book.

Year 3 enjoyed decorating pebbles yesterday as an entry point to their English story “The Pebble in my Pocket”.  Today we have been making predictions using the front cover and first page.
Year 3 had their Rocks and Volcanoes topic entry point today.  They made volcanoes then used chemistry to create a reaction.  This caused their volcanoes to erupt!

Year 3 had great fun exploring 3D shape last week, they created shapes using lots of different materials.


In English, we are looking at the work of the author Anthony Browne.  The children got into character during our role-play session.

Year 3 have had a fantastic Reward Day. They have taken part in the Great Big Year 3 Quiz of the Year, danced their socks off, skipped past their PBs and enjoyed a cinema afternoon watching The Croods 🎄⛄️🎅🏼

A few pictures from the Year 3/4 Christmas performance last week held at Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul.
We have been busy creating some amazing artwork in our ICE Zones.
Year 3 have really enjoyed their outside learning. They built shelters, tasted berries and ground wheat to experience how life would have been in the Stone Age.

Well done Year 3... your home learning looks amazing!

Year 3 have been enjoying their outside ICE Zones. They have researched the artist Andy Goldsworthy and created their own piece of environmental art. Last week, the children braved the elements and created a Stone Age shelter using clay and natural resources.
Today, Thursday 5th September, Year 3 had their Stone Age to Bronze Age day.  The children looked fantastic in their outfits! The children really enjoyed the visit from Portals to the Past. They got to handle lots of historical artefacts and find out so many interesting facts about animals, humans, tools, weapons and so much more.



We are really excited for the start of the new school year.  

On Thursday 5th September, we have our Stone Age day.  Please see the document attached for further details on this and for information about the  changes between Year 2 and Year 3.
