Welcome to Year 3!
In year 3, our teaching team consists of Mrs Gough and Mrs Street. We are also lucky to have had many voluntary helpers.
We have enjoyed many different activities this year that have linked to our three topics: ‘The Terrible Tudors’, ‘The Rainforest’ and ‘The Vicious Vikings’.
During our Tudor topic, we were lucky to experience the Tudor times through a workshop. Throughout the day, we learnt about Tudor dances, medicine and sports. We were even visited by King Henry VIII.
To kick-start our Rainforest topic, we were visited by Zoo lab. We were given the opportunity to learn about and even hold different animals.
We spent a lot of time exploring ‘The Jungle Book’ and for our Wonder day we put together a production to show our grown ups.
In February, most of us went to Rand Farm for our one night residential. It was an incredible experience, where we helped to look after the animals, bake carrot muffins and taste a variety of ice creams. We even witnessed piglets being born.
Now that we are in the summer term, we are working through our ‘Vicious Vikings’ topic. So far, we have created a Viking classroom, learnt songs about the Viking gods and we have also become Viking poets, writing Cinqains and Kennings. We are looking forward to our Viking workshop that will be taking place soon at ‘The Collection’.
We have been learning about Hinduism during our RE lessons. We had a fantastic day exploring the religion, creating our own Rangoli patterns and joining in with some traditional Indian dancing.
In addition to our class topics, we have also enjoyed our focus weeks.
During Art and Science week, we explored the artist Jane Perkins and created flowers using different materials, we then showed off our creations during the whole school art gallery.
