Recent Activities in Year 3
In Year 3 we have been learning about the South American festival Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the dead) we developed our art skills by producing sugar skulls and self portraits showing inside and outside art.
Our Geography topic this term is Our Local Area of Longwell Green. Poppy the Penguin has been visiting the local area with children and having her photo taken. We created poems about the wildlife that lives in our local forest in the school grounds.
For World Book Day and for the rest of the year Mrs Dawson has transformed our bland book corner into the BFG’s Dream Cave. It’s a lovely space and we love reading in there. On the shelf there are dream jars that contain glitter and yoga strategies to help calm us, refocus us and help us have a more controlled, positive mindset when we’re struggling.
Since Mr Brown our new headmaster joined, we have been doing a lot of work on being thankful – our whole school value this term. We have created a wonderful book that gathers all our activities in one place and we have had some fantastic conversations about the importance of being grateful for what we have, where we live and who we are. We have even begun to be thankful of things others do for us like the Friends of Longwell Green who give a lot of their time to help us. They organised a book fair and we got some FAB books to enjoy in our new book corner for free.
Year 3 Wow Day – Extreme Earth
Year 3 Wow Day
Wednesday 13th November Year 3 travelled back in time to the pre-historic times of the Celts in Britain. We learned about Celtic Life, about their homes and how they survived attacks from enemy tribes. During the day we made Celtic broaches from clay and weaved our own material using natural wool. A great day was had by all.
