Welcome to our class page. We've had a very busy start to the year as you can see in these photographs. Our topic for this half term is The Stone Age. We are reading Stig of the Dump as our class story and have made dioramas of what we think Stig's cave looks like.
We've also been exploring cave paintings and had a go at our very own. We went into the school grounds and collected natural materials that we could use to paint with. We even found some berries which we crushed to make natural paint.
Today we've been out gathering more natural materials as we have designed our own tools and weapons that we think would have been useful in The Stone Age.
In Science we are learning what nutrients our bodies need to keep us fit and healthy. We worked in pairs to design our own nutritionally balanced plate of food.
This week we have thought about what a healthy lunch might look like. We decided to have a go at making our own nutritionally balanced wraps and pasta salads. We chose a filling that would provide us with protein and some salad ingredients to provide us with vitamins and minerals. We had great fun making them ... and even more fun eating them!
On Thursday afternoon Mr Simpson put Year 3 through their paces with an hour long Commando Fitness Session. The children (and Mrs Turnbull!) had great fun in the mud completing a range of exercises - burpees, sit ups, leg raises, commando crawling and jogging to name a few! They then did a stretcher drill, a wall climb and finished off with a tug of war. The children showed their true Primrose Lane Learner attributes demonstrating enthusiasm, collaborative learning and ambition.
