Welcome to Year 3

Spring Term

Spring term has been all about the Stone Age. Children have had a smashing time discovering how historians unearthed details about the Stone Age. Both classes learnt about the fossilisation process, which is a main source of understanding what life on Earth was like millions of years ago. As part of this learning process, both classes got to make their own fossils and excavate them. This helped them to write an explanation text on the fossilisation process as part of their English work before moving on to their Stone Age Girl 2019 stories.

Weaving was a focal point mid-way through the term. This is one of the oldest surviving crafts which dates back to the Stone Age times when branches, twigs, grass were used to make bowls, baskets and shelters. Both classes designed, tested and then made their own miniature cloth.

Hockey, basketball and circuit training have been a blast over the Spring terms with both classes working together, at times, to promote the importance of team work and collaborative learning.

Later in the term, the classes got a feel as to what art in the Stone Age was like. Thanks to historical evidence, such as the Cave of Altamira in Spain, the children were able to explore what art was like during this time period. Both classes, created a number of Stone Age master pieces and they even got to make their own paint from chalk, soil and charcoal!
