Exploring Creswell Crags in Y3 (Group 2)

Today, both Y3 classes went to Creswell Crags to find out more about what life was like in the Stone Age.

We spent some time in the museum, looking at the different bones from animals in the Stone Age and we even saw how they turned bones and stones into tools. We also got a chance to look at a real mammoth’s tooth and build the skeleton of different animals using real animal bones.

In order to see how people in the Stone Age lived, we also got to explore a cave at Creswell Crags, where we saw different weapons that had been used by the inhabitants of the cave! The cave had a very low ceiling, so we had to bend down to walk through. We also turned our torch lights off to experience how dark it would have been during the Stone Age, but that didn’t last too long!

Our third activity was about exploring the outdoors and investigating how people in the Stone Age found food and water. We had to follow animal footprints to find various foods such as, honey and hare. We practised our spear throwing skills by ‘hunting’ a reindeer and we had to try and create a fire using wooden tools and friction.

We had a fantastic day!

World Book Day in Y3

Despite the snow, we have had a very exciting day in Y3 for World Book Day!

We started off our day by looking at how we can mix different powder paints to create a collage like Kandinsky in his Concentric Circles Collage. The children were brilliant at mixing the paints and using their favourite colours to create wonderful pieces of art!

We also learnt how to say the different colours in French and wrote out the colours we were wearing on sticky labels and stuck them to our clothes!

Finally, as our class topic is the Stone Age, we created Stonehenge art, using different colours to create a sunset scene behind the rocks.

Y3 Homework Friday 2nd March 2018

Schofield and Sims

The children should complete one page of their Schofield and Sims book and return their book to school by Wednesday. Please complete any corrections before beginning a new test.

Comprehension
Please read through the comprehension that your child has brought home with them. They should be able to discuss what they have read in detail and answer the questions, explaining how they know the answer. The children will be tested on their reading and comprehension skills next week, so this will help prepare them for these tests.

Reading
Please continue to read regularly with your child. Reward points will be given to children who record what they have read in their reading diaries.


Enjoy the snow this weekend!

Chinese lesson in Y3F

Today Mrs Lagason came to school to teach us how to say some words in Chinese. Jakob helped his mum, and he really imprerssed us with his Chinese reading and writing skills. Click on the post to see some photos.

Father Chris visits Y3F

Father Chris came today to talk to us about the Mass. We helped him to prepare the Altar with all the important items used at Mass. Father Chris did a ‘walk through’ of the whole Mass, and he asked us questions to check our understanding. At the end of the lesson, we had chance at the end to ask Father Chris our own questions.
