All of year 3 are loving our first summer topic. The Egyptians. So far we've learnt about Howard Carter discovering the Tomb of Tutankhamun, turned our side portraits into pharaohs and written our own Egyptian adventure stories. We are looking forward to our Ancient Egyptian day on Friday the 24th of May!

Our Next topic is going to be 'Great' here's a picture which may help you guess what we're going to be doing..

What a fantastic topic this has been! We've created our own creatures, looked at habitats, learnt about our skeleton and written a fantastic story about flying pigs!

To add to this, the Year 3 team were blown away by the amazing homework created. Thank you so much for all the effort put in at home!

CURIOUS CREATURES

It's the New Year and we are already working really hard in Year3.  For our WOW day we worked in groups to create our own 'Curious Creatures'. We have used our mythical creatures as a basis for writing poetry. The children are really enjoying our new shared reading text 'The BFG' by Roald Dahl.

Next term we are going to be dealing with some crazy, natural disasters that happen on earth. So get your raincoats on and your evacuation kit ready, as our topic for next term is Wild Weather and Extreme Earth!

What an amazing way to end our Stone Age topic. We have created Stone Age jewellery, played music from the Stone Age, made some tasty Stone Age smoothies and even built our own mini Stone Age Settlements. Here are some pictures from our fantastic morning!

We have changed our Numeracy Workshop to the Monday 12th of November, sorry for any inconvenience this has caused! 

What a Fantastic start to the Stone Age topic we've had. We had an amazing 'WOW' day where all the children found some fossils from the past, under the trim trail. We've emailed Professor Fossilino who told us they were from the Stone Age! We have also created some amazing cave paintings which look beautiful on our displays.
