We enjoyed dressing up today for Children in Need, meeting Blush and finding out in assembly about all the wonderful projects Children in Need are involved in.
Year 3 all looked awesome today dressed up for Halloween and also enjoyed some spooky Halloween dancing. Everyone looked amazing, Mr Boynton’s favourite was the giant unicorn!.
On Wednesday, Year 3 were lucky to have a visit from rock climber, Steve McClure. He showed the children different rocks and spoke about his career, as well as letting the children have a go on his hanging wall. Thank you Steve.
Year 3 have spent the past two weeks creating cave pictures. First we experimented with different lines and using charcoal to draw hand cave art. This week we used charcoal to put our design ideas on a ‘cave wall’. Next week, we will be adding colour to our artwork!
Year 3 had an amazing day at Creswell Crags learning all about the Stone Age.
We built skeletons to identify Stone Age animals, made music in a Stone Age cave and practised our survival skills by building shelters and hunting.
All the children were wonderful and a credit to Watercliffe Meadow.
It was also an extra special birthday trip for Lewis Perry, who was 8 today.
Y3MS and Y3JB spent time in the school library this afternoon. They all enjoyed chilling out on the beanbags whilst discovering exciting new books. We will be returning next week and borrowing books to take home.
Year 3 have already created some amazing home learning this term, from Stone Age code breakers to fact files and a fabulous spear. The children have all enjoyed sharing their home learning with the class, keep them coming in!
Today, the Y3’s enjoyed spending the morning with Mr Allsop learning about different aspects of life during the Stone Age.
The children enjoyed learning about making fires, weapons and foraging for food.
Today the children took home their Summer Challenge. This year the challenge is to send a postcard to school telling us about somewhere you visited during the holiday. We would also like you to bring into school an ‘object of interest’ to share with the class.
As always there is also the 30 Summer Reads to complete!
Have a lovely summer break!
The Year 3 team.
Here are some photos of our camping trip!
