This term in humanities year 3 has been learning all about the Stone Age. We first looked at how long ago the Stone Age was by creating a human timeline with toilet paper. All the children were shocked to see how long ago the Stone Age first started. We have also looked closely at how Stone Age people hunted and gathered food when shops didn’t exist. After researching the different tools pupils were given the chance to design their own tool and make it out of clay. Our next step is to add sticks and rope to complete their Stone Age tool. I know the children will be so excited to show them to you when they are complete and tell you what their tool is design for.
Reception have been visiting our church. We tried to go in the big doors but they were closed. Luckily, we had a key to a secret door. We crept in quietly and had a good look around the church. We then had a sit down in the church pews where we will be sitting on Monday next for our Harvest Festival. The children very much enjoyed the visit.
What a nice day Reception have spent chopping up fruit for our healthy fruit salad. The children all tasted the fruit salad and some wanted second helpings.
We have just finished our first topic using the book ‘The Incredible Book Eating Boy’ by Oliver Jeffers, the children made their own books and did not eat them like Henry did.
The class have now started to read ‘My Granny went to market’ it is a counting story where Granny visits many countries and buys something special in each place.
Well done to the girls’ and boys’ football teams that took part in the tournament last Thursday. The year 5 and 6 children who came to the tournament showed great team work and communication skills on the pitch. Both teams came in 5th place. We are proud of the way they represented our school.
The next event will be coming soon for year 5 and 6.
The children have had a great time settling into their new school. They have been getting to know each other, making friends and exploring their new learning environment. Here are some photos.
