Year 3 visit to The Horniman Museum

We had a good look around the Museum and particularly enjoyed the section when we got to stroke models of a fox and badger.  Then it was time for our prehistoric workshop.  We were able to show our guide Emily, all that we already knew about the Stone Age.  Emily let us handle some artefacts from the Stone Age.  We had to treat them very carefully as they were so old.  Our favourite was a tooth from a wooly mammoth – it was huge!

On Tuesday 29th October, Year 3 visited the Horniman Museum.  We took a train from Beckenham Hill to Catford and then got the 185 bus straight there.  Many of us were asking when lunchtime was before we even arrived!

The Stone Age

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.

Well done to the children who played in the cricket match against St Winfred’s. As a team you played well together an supported each other. What a great way to spend the afternoon with you all.

Football competition

Congratulations to the year 3 and 4 children who came to football on the 10th May. The children played against 5 other schools. The competition was a great opportunity for the children to experience playing against others. They all showed super teamwork and sportsmanship.

Bikeability

Years 3 and 4 had the exciting opportunity to take part in Bikeability training at level 1. Level 1 is about showing confidence and control when riding your bike, being aware of space  and how to best use space when you are in small groups or large groups. Well done to all the children who took part.

Congratulations to the year 3, 4 and 5 children who have completed level 1. You have now completed level 2 by learning about what happens to the astronauts bones in space, researching our galaxy, completing an agility course and completing some exercises that astronauts do as part of their training.

Mission x after school club.

Children in years 3, 4 and 5 have been very enthusiastic since starting the club. They have taken part in fitness tasks and made a robotic arm. They show great interest in what it takes to become an astronaut.
