Also, we have investigated invertebrates in the school grounds and thought about the habitats around them and how we could create our own hotel habitat to see if we have any visitors in the coming days. 

World Book Day 

On the 5th April, we celebrated World Book day by dressing up as our favourite character. On the day, Year 3 focused on the tale of Robin Hood, we used prior knowledge and wrote a script to go with the story. Along with this we created a wanted poster for Robin Hood. Thanks to all the parents putting in hard work with the children's costume!

Oxford Natural History Museum

During the spring term, our topic has been Prehistoric World. We have learnt all about the Stone Age and the different periods within it, we have touched upon the Bronze and Iron Age too. Through our English, we have linked in the dinosaurs and written our own non'chronological report. To conclude our topic, we visited Oxford Natural History Museum including Pitt Rivers. Here we were able to see different artefacts that linked into other topics we have learnt about such as Egyptians and the Mayans. It was an excellent trip and Year 3 had an amazing time.

Prehistoric World - Stone Age Necklace 

We used salt dough to recreate a Stone age necklace, fun had by all!

Father Christmas

Father Christmas came to visit Year 3, each child was even given a present from the man himself, Merry Christmas from Year 3.

Harvest

Year 3 produced an excellent Harvest assembly, we discussed how lucky we were to live in this country and have access to so much food. We even collected a stage full of food which was donated to One Can Trust.

.

We have now recently moved onto learning about the Mayans and chocolate. We have explored when the Mayans were discovered and what the pyramids were used for. We have learnt how to use an atlas and find Central America. Groups have also been working with Mrs Murray and creating their own chocolate cake!

The School Library

In Year 3, we love to read whenever possible. Recently we have been able to book a slot in the school library, here the children are able to practice their reading and also read to each other. The children will choose a book they can borrow from the library and bring back the following week. To finish our library session, the children gather and continue their class book read by Mr. Bowden. This will take place every Wednesday afternoon, please ensure your child have their books in their zippy bag. 

Forest School

As forest school has come to an end, Year 3 would like to thank Mr Olde for a memorable experience learning all about the outdoors. The children are already excited about starting Forest School again in Year 4.
