Our Year

Our new topic started this week called ‘The Stone Age Rocks’ where the children will find out what has changed from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. I have uploaded our topic web for parents to see what they are going to be learning over the rest of this term. We have also started to read Stig of the Dump by Clive James and met the two main characters Barney and Stig. The children are really enjoying listening to the story and finding out about Stig and the life he lives. 
Year 3’s Edible Playground.
The children really took their job seriously today. They have been preparing our garden so we can plant some seeds which will hopefully start to grow over the winter months. They have taken out all the weeds and started to think about what we are going to plant. 
The children have enjoyed ‘travelling’ to different countries in South America to learn about different fruits grown there. This has been part of their work for healthy eating week. They looked at the climate conditions needed for the fruits to grow and how the fruit is exported from one country to another. They found out where coconuts, mangoes, yellow dragon fruits and papayas come from but mango was a definite favourite with the children. They drew some great posters showing these beautiful fruits.
 Forest Fun! We have also collected resources to make our teacher’s faces. Can you guess who they are?
