We have been amazed at the fabulous home learning which has been created by the children this term. Please watch the video below to see the amazing work they have been up to!
Stone Age to Iron Age- Prehistoric Day
We had a fantastic day exploring artefacts and learning about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. Our visitors Liz and Russ from 'Viking School Visits' were absolute experts and shared so many interesting facts about clothing, items of everyday use and weapons with us. We found out how bronze and iron were made and watched ring money being made. The children looked super in their excellent period dress. Well done Year 3!
Ugg came to Visit us
We had a visit though our Year 3 History Portal from a caveman who said his name was 'Ugg'. He was acting very strangely, but luckily Mrs Coffey was there to make sure that the children were protected. We learnt about a few things that Stone Age people would have done and got to raise lots of questions too. We hope he can come back at the end of the project so we can tell him what we've found out!
Roll out the Timeline
We have been finding out about how long the Stone Age was and where the history we know about fits into the timeline. Of all the toilet roll, only the last piece contained the history about the Romans, Vikings, Great Fire of London and the World Wars! All the pieces before were from prehistory!
The children are really enthusiastic about learning Spanish and are chatting away in it when they have the chance. We looked at some of the key reasons why learning Spanish is a good idea, including this video.
Stone Age Hunters and Gatherers
We scoured the grounds as hunter gatherers, looking for food which we needed to hunt and that which we needed to gather. When we returned to the classroom with our pretend food we sorted it and discovered that some of the plants were actually poisonous and we would have been in danger had we have eaten them in the Stone Age!
We have been learning about the ancient cave paintings that have been found across the world and why they were drawn by the cave dwellers. We then had a go, using examples from caves to create our own cave art, using pastels and chalk.
It's not all about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age. We have been testing our fitness levels with a company who have supported us in tracking our fitness. We will be checking it again later in the year.
Creation Q &A Session
We have been studying creation in our RE lessons. We were fortunate to be able to have a service followed by a Q&A session all about creation with our Vicar, Paul, who is also an extremely knowledgeable scientist. Some of the questions that came from both a religious and scientific viewpoint were absolutely fabulous!
Each school day we will be holding our Year 3 live lesson teaching at 9:40 - 10:00 on Microsoft Teams. Our live feedback session will be from 14:15 - 14:30.
