Merry Christmas everyone! It has been such a busy term and the class have worked incredibly hard. Enjoy a wonderful break with your families and we will look forward to seeing you when we return to school on January 5th 2022! Thank you to all who sent us a Christmas card or gave us a gift, we really do appreciate it.
St. Andrew’s Day
On the 30th November it was a special day for us. We really enjoyed finding out about the saint our school is named after. It was rather emotional performing in the hall in front of the audience after such a long time!
Our Adventure to WildWood@Escot!
The Year 3 and 4 classes had the most amazing time at Escot. We spent the morning carrying out various activities in the Anglo-Saxon village. These included: bread making, carving wood, grinding corn, dressing-up, looking at artefacts, shaping metal in the Forge and looking in a range of shelters from different time periods.
During the afternoon we ventured off through the woodland to discover a range of animals including: lynx, Artic foxes, wolves, wild boar, bears, owls and much more. We foraged for edible leaves and found yarrow and stinging nettles. Some of us were brave enough to sample them. Yum!
Luckily we had enough time for the adventure park before heading home. We had the best day and had so much fun.
Anglo -Saxon Shelter Building
We had great fun designing and making our Anglo-Saxon shelters. The children carefully measured, cut, sawed and assembled their materials together and produced fantastic looking homes.
Anglo-Saxon themed days.
We have had amazing fun in school learning about the Anglo-Saxons during our themed days. Some of our activities have included: making stew and oatcakes, feasting and sharing riddles, weaving, archery with Matt, fire starting and sharing stories around a camp fire. We have loved every minute, especially toasting marshmallows and having a hot chocolate!
This week have two Mathletics stars and a ‘man of the match’ to congratulate! A huge ‘Well done!’
Remember, all children should be aiming for 1,000 Mathletics points each week, as part of weekly homework to gain a bronze certificate. Three bronze awards will lead to a silver certificate.
Anglo-Saxon Creativity Day 11.10.21
It was very exciting trying on our Anglo-Saxon costumes together ready for our day of Dance, Drama and Art. It felt like we had travelled back in time! We really enjoyed perfecting our group dances and performing to the music. It was very busy in the Anglo-Saxon village as we mimed the building of the mead hall.
Later on, we pretended to be Anglo-Saxon monks as we studiously created our illuminated letters. We learned the art of faux-calligraphy and discussed our Church of England values: Hope, Dignity, Wisdom and Community. We each chose a word to illuminate and were delighted with the results!
Science: Changes of State
We had great fun this week investigating what happens to certain foods and liquids if we heat or cool them. We predicted whether the changes were reversible or irreversible. Only Julia was patient enough to wait for her melted chocolate coated biscuit to return to a solid. The rest were gobbled within minutes of dipping!
Welcome to Year 3!
