Welcome to our Class page. As we progress through the year, new items will be added to give a flavour of learning in Year 3.
Our first topic of the year is called,"Set in Stone," and focuses upon our prehistoric past, from the Stone Age right up to the Iron Age.
We've been finding out all about some of the amazing discoveries made in the Caves of Lascaux, France. Why not go online and take a virtual tour yourself, we're sure you'll be impressed! Just like the Cave People, we ground up a variety of materials to create our own cave paints! Great fun, making for an aromatic classroom!
In our R.E. learning, we made Advent Wreaths, with the theme of Peace, Love, Hope and Joy, which reflect Christian values.
For Christmas Fayre we made, using what we had learnt from our Lantern Making Workshop, festive lanterns. They were an immediate sellout success! Thanks to friends and families for your support, hopefully they brightened your Christmas!
Recently we had a great day at Penlee House Museum, where we took part in a prehistoric workshop. Children got to view and handle artefacts and make their own badges and pots. A big thank you to Zoe and museum staff for a terrific learning experience!
Why not take a peek at our film below?
Do you know what Stone Age people made their instruments from, or what they might have sounded like? Well, thanks to Mr Lane's expertise we do! Hopefully we'll soon add our own music!
We have been learning about and practising some Chinese calligraphy. We emailed our Chinese names to our partner school in Ningbo, who were really impressed with how well we had done, I think these phortos show the care taken and pride felt.
As part of our shared learning with China, children across the School completed a piece of work to illustrate their aspirations. These too have been shared and are going on display at the Zhuongqiao Central Primary School. Pupils in Year 6 are currently writing Pen Friend letters to their Chinese counterparts who have demonstrated through their writing, just how aspirational they are.
Below are some photos of a display in our Chinese Partner School. Our link Teacher has said that the pupils there have been really excited about finding out about us!
Weaseling, in case you didn't know, involves scrambling around, under and over boulders in places you don't normally get to go!
Weasels one and all!
On a more serious note, I would like to thank all parents for encouraging children to attend this most memorable, important learning experience. I am sure it is a memory which will remain with them for a very long time.
