What a lot Y3 have crammed in this term!

We began our Geography,History, Art and DT project on Ancient Greece by welcoming an Ancient Greek visitor into school called Polly.

Polly explained to us about the Geography of Greece and the city states. The Greeks were always fighting! We learned about Greek democracy, Greek myths and even had a mini Olympic Games in the hall. We had a wonderful time and learned so much.

In Science we have been learning about rocks and soils and light.

We have done some very interesting investigations into different types of rocks and we are really developing our knowledge of scientific methods.

This half term we have begun to learn about light. We have used our mini globes to learn about the movement of the Earth in space and are working on how we explain day and night, the ‘movement’ of the sun across the sky and the seasons.

We have had lots of visitors this term; the lady from Dog’s Trust came to talk to us about how to treat our furry friends and Mrs Ward came with her pet rabbit, George to talk to us about care of pet rabbits. This helped us to bring our work on the book ‘The Rabbit Problem’ alive! Thank you Mrs Ward.

We have all been working hard on our reading this term and it has been wonderful to see everyone developing their skills, accessing Reading Buddy and borrowing lots of books from our class library. Well done children – remember – Those Who Read Succeed! As a class we have kept the Clem’s Shop busy and enjoyed our Dojo treats when we have earned Dojo’s for reading at home.
