Striving to be the best we can!
This final term of year 3 will be dedicated to learning all about 'Lincoln'. As part of this topic the children are very excited to visit the Lincoln castle on Wednesday 1st July. They will be learning all about how Lincoln has changed over time and the significance of the Magna Carta. In Literacy the children will be studying various legends such as Robin Hood and King Arthur and they will even be creating a Robin Hood dance in PE! They will be making a moving dragon using pneumatics in DT.
Our topic was 'Savage Stone Age'. Yabba Dabba Doo! The children really enjoyed this topic, learning about how the stone aged people survived. They watched clips of some favourite films such as the croods and flinstones and used these to support their literacy work where they wrote adventure stories. We have been reading extracts from Stig of the Dump and Stone aged boy. The children have really enjoyed learning about cave paintings and their meanings and got very messy making a paper mache model of a cave!
In term four, our focus has been on Britain, learning about it's multi-culture that makes it so brilliant!
We have competed in a Commonwealth Games, prepared and tasted multi-cultural foods and considered what it might be like living as an refugee. For more information, click on the link below...
