We have had a super first term and have really enjoyed our 'Bella Italia' topic, learning all about Italy and especially Tuscany - the children have asked for a school visit! Here they are painting Tuscan scenes...
We also held our School Council and Eco-Council elections, with hustings and a secret ballot. Well done to all the children who took part and our elected representatives: Olivia and Blake (School Council); Hattie and Evan (Eco-Council).
Term 2 began with us learning about Bonfire night and Remembrance and we created some amazing poems and artwork!
Take a look at some previous learning in Year 3...
We loved our Summer term topic, 'What's on the Inside?', learning about our amazing human body, including the skeleton, muscles and digestive system. Our friendly skeleton 'Mr Bones' became a fascinating member of our class!
We really enjoyed learning about Ancient Egypt in our topic, 'Down the River Nile',
finding out all about the amazing engineering behind the pyramids and the importance of the River Nile, as well as exploring hieroglyphs and making Ancient Egyptian death masks. We had a great visit to the Bristol Museum, where we explored the Ancient Egyptian gallery and participated in a workshop handling different artefacts. We also had a fantastic enrichment day to end our theme and all dressed up as Ancient Egyptians. It was great fun competing in teams for the best wrapped mummy and tasting food that the Ancient Egyptians would have eaten.
We also had great fun in 'Cinderella Week', with a range of literacy activities and other cross curricular lessons and workshops
