This half term, our topic will be "Farm to Fork,." The children have already begun to grow their own fruits and vegetables and are looking forward to watching them grow. We are also very excited about the arrival of the eggs, which are currently in the incubator. We are all very excited to meet the chicks when the hatch.
Wow! What a busy term Spring Term has been.
We have had a brilliant time exploring the oceans. We have read Treasure Island and used ideas from our class novel and topic learning to help us create our own adventure stories. We have learnt that short sentences, onomatopoeia and personification can be used to create tension in our stories, we are now much more confident in paragraphing our ideas.
We have learnt how to find the area and perimeter of shapes and have become much more confident in working with different measures.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Sea Life Centre in Hunstanton, where we were able to explore the different types of animals that live within our oceans. We even had to opportunity to hold a Starfish!
Swimming for Year 3 begins this coming Monday, (9th January.) Please ensure that your child comes to school with their swimming kit.
-Due to swimming now being on a Monday, for this half term, PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon.
Thank you all very much for your kind words and gifts. We have been having a wonderful time in Rabbits class preparing for Christmas. We have enjoyed completing a range of Christmas crafts such as; clay decorations, 3-D snow men and origami cards. However, we had the most fun at our class party where we played lots of games, ate some snacks and had a brilliant time dancing with friends.
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We are looking forward to seeing you all again after a restful break.
This half term began with an exciting trip to Wandlebury, where the children in Rabbits class were able to experience different elements of life during the Iron-Age. They took a tour of the Iron-Age hill fort, cooked their own bread over a fire and made wattle panels, similar to that which would have been used to build Iron-Age homes.
Year 3 have stepped back in time and experienced different elements of Stone-Age History. We have looked at the importance of fire and how this was made. We have made tools from wood and flint. Taken time to tell a tale through our own cave paintings and created reconstructions of a Neolithic settlement. We are excited to learn all about how Britain changed from the Stone-Age through to the Iron Age. We are all very much looking forward to our trip to Wandlebury.
