At the end of the Spring Term the children in Year 3 hosted an Ancient Egyptian Exhibition for parents, family and friends. This fantastic event allowed the children to present their home learning projects. There was an amazing array of exhibits and everyone was incredibly impressed with the intricate work on display. During the afternoon the children also gave an informative demonstration of the embalming process and explained the significance of mummification as the Ancient Egyptians believed in the afterlife.
Year 3 Maths Open Morning
In February, we opened the doors of our maths lessons to our parents! We started by testing their mental maths skills – they managed to pass our tests. Our topic was fractions and we were learning how to make one whole using a variety of different fractions. To help our learning we used pizza slices – this meant that we could see it before we wrote it down. Our parents were impressed by our learning and below is a selection of their comments and photos:
What a fantastic day we had in Year 3 to launch our new history topic – Stone Age to the Iron Age. The children were enthralled by our very knowledgeable visitor Matt Russell, who taught us so many amazing facts about life in the Iron Age.
The children all looked great in their costumes and thoroughly enjoyed exploring all the artefacts to learn more about this period of time in the past. There are definitely a few Iron Age warriors amongst them and an Iron Age Tribal Chieftain too!
The afternoon brought even more activities in the beautiful autumn sunshine. We were able to make the most of the weather and our fantastic school grounds as the children completed their warrior training-learning how to use spears and javelins.
At the end of our day together our happy warriors were able to take home their own Iron Age shields and spears tips which they had made during the day. What a brilliant day!
