This week has been all about minibeasts in Year 3. We started by researching minibeasts using books and then went on a minibeast hunt around the school grounds. We looked under leaves and logs and in hedges and in the grass. We found lots of different bugs including a lot of woodlice.

On Tuesday afternoon we built a bug hotel with help from Mr Simpson. Although the bug hotel is looking good, it is a work in progress and we will be adding other things such as pine cones to make it even more inviting for little creatures and maybe even a hedgehog.


On Wednesday afternoon it was our turn for den building. Although it was quite windy and a bit tricky to get the covers on, the final dens were (fairly) stable and we all managed to have some fun inside our den.



Year 3 Viking Trip to Danelaw
Year 3 had an excellent day at Danelaw last Friday. The staff at Danelaw continually commented about the wonderful manners and superb listening skills that Year 3 demonstrated. We dressed as Vikings and spent the day carrying out Viking jobs around the village and learning about the Viking way of life. We made pots, ground grain to make bread, tended the fields and learnt how to use the Viking weapons. We even had to defend the village from a surprise attack from a lone Anglo-Saxon. 

Learning about the different jobs the Vikings do. Our first view of the Viking village (and Emma).
A Viking toilet (for two).  Learning how to be A Viking warrior.
Making oil lamps. Grinding the grain to make bread.
