Savage Stone Age!

On Friday 23rd November, Years 3 and 4 had a special Stone Age activity afternoon in the woods to experience a little of what life would have been like in prehistoric Britain.  We sampled some foods that Stone Age people would have gathered, collected wood for the fire, made shelters, created cave paintings and other art from natural materials and made wooden arrows / spears.

Investigating Friction

This week in Science Year 3 have investigated the effects of friction on different surfaces. We used ramps covered with different materials such as sandpaper and carpet to test the effects of friction on a toy car. 

We began by making a prediction then, completing the investigation, followed by a recording of our results in a table. We are super scientists in Year 3!

The children said that they enjoyed this investigation very much! Keep up the good work Year 3 🙂 

Diwali

On Wednesday, we were lucky enough to take part in a special Bhangra dancing session with Year 4. We were visited by a professional Bhangra dancing company who taught us some super moves.

The special session was part of our Diwali celebrations. We very much enjoyed it and would love for the dancers to visit again!

Year 3 remembers

This week Year 3 have been immersed into their ‘I Remember topic’.

This year the 11th of November marks 100 years since the end of the First World War!

Year 3 have been learning all about war time life as well as why remembrance is so important.

Alongside nursery, we have enjoyed baking a traditional war time bread pudding and played war time games such as jacks and conkers.

We have also been busy making lots of poppies for an art display, painting remembrance art, learning a wartime song, attending a tea dance and much more!
