Final Week of the Autumn Term
Year 3 are well and truly settled into Key Stage 2 life, working hard and trying to be good role models for the younger children. They are a lovely, polite, hard-working class who meet any challenges with energy and enthusiasm.

The last piece of writing we did was letters to Santa, in which the children had to introduce themselves, ask Santa some questions, tell him what they might like for Christmas and finish with a concluding paragraph. They could also add a p.s. if they liked. I was as always, impressed by the children’s imaginations and the different questions they came up with to ask Santa were unique and thoughtful. 

I have enjoyed teaching Year 3, and will most certainly miss them. I wish them all the best in the future and think Mrs Dealtry is very lucky to be their next teacher.

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.
