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. 

22.10.20 We have been using ambitious vocabulary to write our diamond poems about the night. Some of our poems make the night feel sinister and scary, while others make the night feel wonderful and exciting, depending on our word choices.

8.10.20 Illustrious Owls art work - we looked at Illustrious Owl by Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak, and were inspired to create our own fantastic owls.

7.10.20 Worry Wizard Wednesday! This week we talked about not letting our worries get too big so that they unbalance us.

Science - making models to help us understand day and night

25.9.20 We have been researching and planning non-chronological reports about owls. Today we wrote our reports, making sure we used features such as paragraphs, subheadings and bullet points. Here are some of our fantastic first drafts.

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!
