The discovery of Tutankhamen

Today, we put our archaeologist hats on in Y3 and went on a journey through images of the discovery of Tutankhamen. Following this, we’ll be writing telegrams to Lord Carnarvon informing him of our finds!

Home learning

Taeya and Umaiza have both made brilliant word searches as part of their home learning. We’ve all had a go at them this afternoon! Well done girls!

Fencing

This term in Y3, we have been lucky enough to be chosen to learn how to fence! This week, we learnt how to stand and how to safely equip ourselves for a fencing match. We then had a go at doing thrusts, lunging and jabs!

Goal setting and Kenyan Linking

We’re a busy year group with linking projects this year! As well as linking with two classes at Arbourthorne, we will also be linking with a school in Kenya!

This afternoon, we’ve been very lucky to be visited by Becky who is our link between us and the Kenyan school. We’ve spent the afternoon setting our goals for the year 2019 (similar to New Years resolutions). We also talked about Kenya and learnt some Kenyan dance moves!

We’ll be doing more learning about Kenya in Summer term.

Weston Park Museum

Today we all went to Weston Park museum to meet our linking school, Arbourthorne!

We had a great time looking around the museum with our new friends and worked through small work booklets in pairs with someone from the different school.

We found the Egyptian mummy straight away!

We had our lunch and then came back to school. We can’t wait for our next meet up with Arbourthorne which will be on the 30th January when we will get the chance to visit them at their school, we are so excited already!

Team work

This week in Y3 outdoor PE we’ve been working on team work skills, making different faces using different equipment in a relay race.

We saw some excellent team work skills and made some great faces!

A new book

We’re starting off the new year by beginning an exciting new book:

We’ll be reading this one over the next few weeks and it’s full of magic and mystery!

Today we predicted what the story could be about based on the front cover, we had lots of interesting predictions!

Arbourthorne’s identity circles

We received a very special package this week in Y3 from Year 4 at Arbourthorne Primary School.

They sent us their identity circles that they made and we sent ours to them too!

We had so much fun reading them and have found lots of things that we have in common already!

we can’t wait to meet our new friends in the new year!
