Farewell Year 3! We will miss each one of you! We are looking forward to watching you grow in Year 4 and beyond, achieving so much.

 

We would like to say a huge 'thank you' to the parents for all your support throughout the year.

Year 3 Spanish Day!

We had such fun visiting Lorenzo's restaurant for some delicious tapas food. A huge 'Thank You' to John's mum Jen for arranging our trip and to Jacob and Alex, the chefs who created our feast. Ana taught us the days of the week by teaching us a song and we were lucky enough to be taught some Flamenco dancing by the talented Miss Mallard. An amazing day all round!

Year 3 and 4 Residential to Magdalen Farm

We had such an amazing few days at Magdalen farm and were blessed with such wonderful weather. All the children were impeccably behaved, well mannered and a pleasure to take away. Activities included; orienteering, feeding the farm animals, watering and picking vegetables, collecting hen eggs, making sandwiches, building shelters in the woods and collecting and identifying river species. The children (and staff) had so much fun! smiley

We had a whole school 'Salad Off' and each child brought in an item of salad to contribute to our class creation. We had fun cutting, slicing and preparing the various items. We created a 'Boudicca Roman Salad'. She tasted delicious too!

Summer Term

Welcome back to a fun-filled and exciting Summer term. Our topic is 'Roman Invaders'. We look forward to a visit from a Roman Legionary, who will tell stories of times in the Roman Army. 

We have our class assembly on Wednesday 24th May and 'Sports Day' on Thursday 25th May.

The Year 3 and 4 residential to Magdalen Farm takes place on 14th - 16th June. We are very excited about that! smiley

Our Roman shields are well under way - photos below. Many thanks to all the parents who gave up their time to patiently support us with this tricky project. We are really proud of how they are taking shape. Our Roman visitor was very impressed with their authentic looking construction! 

 

Roman Assembly Song 'Invade!'

Please practise our song as much as you can. It is important that everyone is confident with the chorus. Choose a verse to learn thoroughly; we will decide on singing groups next week. If you are not keen on singing, learn verse 3, which is more like a rap.

Spoken: Let me tell you about the first millennium!

The Roman legions crossed the sea

to the shores of Britain in forty three.

They built their forts and their roads and towns.

We all serve Emperor Claudius now.

With the gladius and shield

And the javelins they wield

Taking elephants and catapults

Across the battlefield

Putting Britons in their graves

Taking taxes, making slaves

They took command to the edge of the Pict lands.

Romans!

 

Invade! Invade!

Blood and gore and history made.

Invade! Invade!

This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!

Spoken: Let me tell you about the Dark Ages...

 

The Saxons plundered, Rome withdrew.

Then the Angles came and others too.

They farmed and fought their way inland

With the ox and plough and a spear in hand.

Many Saxon kings would reign 

Over churls and over thanes.

Every kingdom came out fighting

Then they'd do it all again.

There were lots of little wars,

Funny Anglo Saxon laws.

They ruled like this for the next three centuries.

Saxons!

 

Invade! Invade!

Blood and gore and history made.

Invade! Invade!

This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!

 

Spoken: No, not the 8th century!

 

The Saxons ruled til the Viking sails

Rocked up at a monastery hard as nails.

England fell as the Viking hoard

Took land and treasure and thralls as their reward. 

Those armies battled back and forth

While the Scots and Picts squared up in the North.

Canute and Edward came and went.

Then Harold met the Normans and we know what that meant.

Here we go again...

 

Invade! Invade!

Blood and gore and history made.

Invade! Invade!

Romans, Saxons, Vikings, Normans,

This is A.D. Britain, sharpen your blade!

Sharpen your blade!

We had an amazing day out at Mount Edgcumbe via the Cremyll ferry. The children enjoyed playing beach games, rock pooling, shell hunting and creating beach art. The picnic in the Orangery was fun too.
