Spring 1 –
We have be working hard this half term learning about the Roman’s!
We have used our researching skills on the ipads to find out about all the different countries in the Mediterranean where the Romans mainly invaded. We have also found out lots about their army which was the best in the world. Did you know that once you signed up you couldn’t leave for 20 years?
We have learnt how to march like Roman soldiers and we have even made our own Roman helmets in DT lessons. We remembered that the type of helmet you wore would show wether you were a leader or not! We will soon be putting our marching skills to the test when we go on our trip to Chester. See how we got on in Spring 2!
Autumn 2 –
We have been extremely busy this half term in year 3. We have continued to learn about the Stone Age and the children have enjoyed learning about the different periods of the Stone Age and they delivered a super performance in our class assembly!
The children have enjoyed learning about the different types of rocks and how fossils are formed in our Science lessons and they have even made their own fossils!
We have been learning all about Christmas traditions and we have investigated what the true meaning of Christmas is for Christians and compared this to what Christmas means to us.
Autumn 1 –
The Year 3 children have settled back into school very well so far. We have started off the Autumn term with our new topic of ‘The Stone Age’.
To get the children engaged, we had a Stone Age Day where children and staff dressed up and took part in exciting activities. We got to examine real-life artefacts of human and animal bones, skulls and fur. We then hunted like the hunter gatherers, trying to catch enough mammoths, hares and deer to keep us fed for the Winter. We found out about how Stone Age men changed over time, where they lived and how they lived.
It was a very engaging day that was enjoyed by everyone, and all the children were beautifully behaved!
