Year 3

The children enjoyed a body percussion session today(1.10.18) as part of art week.

What a brilliant day year 3 had in the forest today (27.9.18) we got to make stone age tools out of sticks and slate, create stone age round houses, picnic in the meadow and enjoy the glorious sunshine. A fantastic day had by all!

Year 3 had a lovely time visiting the library on Wednesday - we enjoyed a storytelling session and also had the opportunity to choose a book to read whilst we were there.

Stone Age Day - The children had a great day on Monday - they took part in lots of different activities including jewellery making, stone age art, making a woolly mammoth out of junk modelling materials and creating Stonehenge out of biscuits!
