We are visiting our woodland on Wednesdays in November. No photos this week but we had a go at making leaf crowns. It is trickier than it sounds. Lots of us showed lots of determination and perseverance and many of us worked well as part of a team. It was also good to get outside to learn in the sunshine and fresh air. Remember your outdoor PE kits and wellies/boots next Wednesday.
First week back! Time for a new Year 3 history topic.
We have started learning about The Normans. We found out when they arrived in Britain, and we know that the story of the invasion is recorded on the Bayeux Tapestry. We created our own Norman Style shield designs, complete with symbols and Colour choices inspired by the Normans.
We also found out that Clifford’s Tower in York was built by the Normans. Watch out for more sign of the Normans if you go to visit York!
