This week Y3 have been on an exciting trip to Creswell Crags. This is a place where real life cavemen lived around 40000 years ago during the ice age. We got the chance to make cave art, go on a tour of an actual cave that people lived in all those years ago and tested our survival skills by trying to build a den that would keep us warm and practicing our spear throwing skills so we could hunt for food. During our survival skills it even started snowing so we got a good idea of what it would have really been like in the ice age!
This morning, Y3 were joined by Alan MacDonald, author of the Dirty Bertie books. We went down to the hall, where he taught us how to draw Bertie, then he set us the challenge of creating a new book for the series. We created the front cover and wrote the blurb in the hope that he might use one in his next book! We had Dirty Bertie: Halloween, Dirty Bertie: Holiday and even Dirty Bertie: Explosion
Later on, the Lord Mayor of Sheffield visited school. She spoke to us in assembly and two children from each class had the chance to see her cutting the ribbon to unveil our wonderful new library! Mr Smith worked extremely hard to select books to suit everyone so we hope you will enjoy and cherish them.
In art this half term we are making Stone Age necklaces out of clay. Here we are in our first lesson. Keep checking in to see our progress.
This week world famous rock climber Steve McClure AKA Rockman came to visit Y3 and talk to us about different types or rock linking to our Stone Age theme. We got to hold some of these rocks as well as test our finger strength to see if we would make good rock climbers.
