Inventions - Prehistoric Axes

As part of our design and Topic lessons this term we made prehistoric axes. We used papier mache to mould the shape of our axes and then painted our axes the colour of our choice. Blue = Stone Age, Red = Bronze Age and Grey = Iron Age.

Reading - Autumn Term

To encourage reading children can share all the amazing books they have read through our reading wall. 

Each time they have read a book a picture of the cover goes on their peg. 

This is our wall at the end of Term 1. Well done to those children who have multiple books pegged up!

After another 6 weeks of reading, this is our reading wall at the end of Term 2. Another great term of reading. Well done Year 3. 

PE - Autumn Term

In term 1 Year 3 have been learning a prehistoric themed dance to 'Everybody Walk the Dinosaur.'

Thanks to all the family and friends who came to watch us perform. We're glad you enjoyed our dance.
