Tremors! Our new project is all about Natural Disasters and we have travelled around the world to see different Volcanos. As well as the effects of Tsunamis and Earthquakes.
Welcome back! It's hard to believe we're already in our Spring term. We have lots to look forward to over the next 6 weeks, particularly our new project TREMORS! We will be learning all our natural disasters and how they have effected people in the past and present across the world. Our science topic will see us analysing Rocks and Soils and hopefully we will find some interesting fossils along the way!
We had a very busy run up to Christmas with a certain naughty bear causing quite a stir!
Look at our amazing Greek Pots! We designed, planned and created them based on the research we did on the Ancient Greeks
How the world was made story map...
How a world was made... We used instruments to retell our new story!
Congratulations to our half term Reading Mission Winner! Her entries showed her reading in a lift, a baby's crib and even a toy house!
Look at who has been to visit! Murphey came to have a nosey around our room but we kept calm and made him feel welcome!
We've had a very exciting start to the second half term! Thanks to a special visit from Anchor Education, we have kicked off our new project of Gods and Mortals with lots of drama and singing to learn all about the Ancient Greeks! Did you know Hades, God of the underworld, had a pet cerberus? Or that Cronus (Zeus' father) tried to EAT his children? The Greek gods were brutal! During this project we are looking forward to learning all about the Ancient Greeks ad comparing their lives to our. When would you rather live?
Our Ancient Greek day was a great start to the topic!
After meeting our predatory bird at the beginning of this term, in Science we have been investigating food chains and this week, specifically, what owls eat. To find out we looked at how owls produce pellets from the second chamber in their stomach. When we dissected them we found bones, feathers and everything else an owl would not be able to digest!
We’ve been Troll hunting this week and found one in the forest school! *gulp!* (Miss Bridge was terrified!!)
Independent Writing- All our hard work has paid off! Just look at some of the amazing writing that has happened this week :-)
Endo or Exo? Year 3 have been looking at the similarities and difference of animal skeletons. Look what we created!
Freddy Fit was a roaring success!
Teamwork! Try Try Try Again!
The children loved taking part in Freddy Fit and we saw lots of resislient children! They kept going and didn't give up! Great workout!
Look at those feet go!
They didn't stop!
The children have been very excited this week as we have had some very special visitors in school! We were lucky enough to have some beautiful Birds of Prey show us their flying skills. We saw a barn owl, a hawk, a sea eagle and even an eagle owl who doesn't like to fly!
We learned a lot in one morning. For example, did you know the sea eagle can live up to 70-80 years in captivity?! Or that if an Owl's eyes are orange then they hunt better at dawn and dusk? Amazing!
Birds of Prey Visitors!

Wow watch this precise flying!
