A massive welcome to Year 3!  We are all looking forward to getting to know you all in Autumn Term and we have lots of exciting things in store.  When we first come back in September, the whole school will be focusing on a special book which will help us get to know each other, work effectively as a team and share our dreams and aspirations. Our first Year 3 topic is Stone Age to Iron Age and we will be doing a whole range of activities linked to this.

Making the most of outdoor learning on a warm

September's day smiley.  Children worked in teams and used their observational skills to match natural and manmade

materials to a colour chart.  What a lovely time we hadsmiley .

Our First WOW Day in Year 3

To kick off our topic on Stone Age to Iron Age, we learnt about the work of archaeologists and actually acted as archaeologists by uncovering lots of exciting artefacts on the school grounds.  We then used our observational skills, sketched them as well as describing them, looking for clues as to what we thought they might be.  Later in the day, we learnt about how people communicated through their magnificent cave paintings and we had a go at our own, explaining what the images and symbols meant.  Great fun was had by all.  Well done Year 3!


Team Work makes the Dream Work

Our text is 'Someone Builds The Dream' by Lisa Wheeler and Loren Long, we have been talking all about teamwork. We have looked at all the jobs roles at school and thought of questions we would like to ask them about their careers. Check out the videos below.


We also got a special visit from Mr Davies who answered all class 7's brilliant questions about his caretaker role, what a treat!

To kick the school year off, we have been reading 'Someone Builds the Dream' by Lisa Wheeler and Loren Long.  One of the lines in the book is 'You need a team to build a dream.'  We practised our team building skills by making towers on the first day back.
