‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term A

Week 2

This week, we started our new topic all about the Romans. I was pleased to hear that some of the children already knew some facts about the Romans! We have also started looking at our new Literacy text, Escape from Pompeii. Rocksteady Music School have been running 'Feel Good Friday' which is a live online music session. The children really enjoyed learning about beat and pitch, and having a good dance and singalong on a Friday afternoon!

Week 1

Bushcraft Clay Guardians

We are all glad to be back and we have had lots of fun in year 3 this week. We started off in the Bushcraft Area working on mental wellbeing and many life skills. The children made clay guardians to protect our forest from the goblins! In maths we have been refreshing our brains by beginning with some place value work, and in English I enjoyed reading letters from the children telling me all about themselves. We have been learning all about Picasso and we had a go at starting to draw portraits in his style. We also had a good laugh at how strange they look!
