Year 3 have had an enjoyable first few weeks back. We have started to explore our new topic ‘Rocking through the Ages’ where we are learning all about the Stone Age right through to the Iron Age. We have already transported ourselves back to the Stone Age and become hunter-gatherers, exploring the school grounds for assets in order to survive! In English we have been writing instructions on how to wash a Saber-toothed Tiger. In Science we have been exploring light and shadow. Lastly, in PE we have been enjoying learning to use our bodies to perform sequences to create a dance.
We are looking forward to seeing where our learning will take us over the next few weeks!
Miss Martin and I have enjoyed sharing all the children’s homework this term. We have had lots of fantastic Italian landmarks that have been carefully created.
We look forward to seeing what next terms homework activities will be!
Last week Chol Theatre took up a mini residency at Huntingdon Primary School. Year 3 had the pleasure to work with Lauren, Class 7 on Tuesday and Class 8 on Thursday. Based on our current learning about Pinocchio, Lauren helped the children use their imagination to turn our learning spaces into magical toy shops. We thought carefully about what we would like to include in our toy shop and we built the toy shop using lots of materials. We also got to think about which character we could find in our toy shop and act these out. Our toy shops had magical crystals that made all the objects in the shop come alive after all the humans had left. We had a great time transforming our learning spaces into magical places.
In order to encourage healthier eating habits and to inform the children of what is available on our healthy and balanced school menu, we were very lucky to have our very own tasting session. Mrs Griffiths cooked up a variety of delicious dishes from the school menu and everyone got the opportunity to try them. Although all dishes were well received, the favourite seemed to be the Chicken Curry and Naan Bread which got a double thumbs up.
