Year 3

Summer term - Ancient Greece

We have had an amazing start to our new topic of Ancient Greece.

On Greek day the children dressed up in Greek costumes, tried a range of foods, learnt a Greek dance and made both a snake headdress (like Medussa) and designed and made a shield for a Greek solider.

We will be learning about what life was like in Ancient Greece as well as comparing it to modern day life. We will be looking at Greek art by making a clay vase and decorating it in the style the Ancient Greeks.


Spring Term -Predators

This term our topic is the very exciting Predators and we started it with a visit from Kilton Pet rescue. The children found it very exciting to be close to a variety of birds of prey and land predators. They will be learning about dinosaurs, fossils, skeletons and crocodiles to name a few things so we are looking forward to a super exciting term.

We have had an exciting time so far with lots of food tasting including designing and creating our own cereals!
We have been very fortunate to have had a visit from Morrisons, who taught us about recycling plastics and brought us lots of fruit and vegetables to try - it was yummy!

We also walked to Morrisons to look at their fresh fruit and vegetable, and frozen sections  of the supermarket. It was a long way but definitely worth it!

Welcome to Year 3!
