Year 3 had a fantastic 'Roman Day' on Monday 8th July! The children all made a fantastic effort with their Roman attire, with a selection of gladiators, centurions, goddesses, gods and peasants all in attendance. The day began with a visit from a Roman drama company, who taught the children had to 'feel' like they were from Ancient Rome. Then the children made fantastic action poses and created little plays themselves. In the afternoon the children enjoyed a delicious Roman feast of apples, honey, dates and plums to name a few things. Afterwards the children recreated the famous Colosseum in our playground, by playing the role of gladiators and their steeds. The day was completed with some archery practise. Thank you to our visiting parents who joined us for our Roman Day, the children really enjoyed it.
We recently took part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) afternoon. We did lots of experiments, including testing vegetable juices and looking at its colours, building a lego city, looking at magnets using magnetix, testing electrical circuits with an on and off switch, building a Jenga tower, making animals from polystyrene and using robots to sense a dark line. We loved it and thought it was fun, cool and educational! By Ben and Erin.
In Geography we have been learning about volcanoes. We produced a drama about the stages of their formation.
In History this term we have been learning about the STone Age. We made some pots from clay similar to pots Stone Age people would hve used.
We have been enjoying learning about Samba music with Mr. Fox and this week we did a performance for everyone in assembly. It was loud, but we loved it and we think the parents and teachers did too!
We have been using Venn diagrams to work out multiples of 5's and 2's.Then we used this skill to sort our rocks and crystals in Science. This was a fun way to do our Science lesson and maths. By Emily and Fred.
