Year 3 have started their next history topic on the Stone Age by learning about how archaeologists find out about the past. We had fun creating ‘cave drawings’ to depict life in 2019! Imagine a world where we didn’t eat pizza and chips, read books, go to shops or write using pens and pencils!

Year 3 spent today learning all about the Hindu celebration of Holi.

In the afternoon of our Hinduism RE day, we had a presentation from Sanjna and Davashree. Sanjna and Davashree are both Hindus. They shared with us their beliefs, discussed some of their deities, showed us some Hindu dancing and some of us even got to try on some Hindu clothing. We then tried some curry. Lots of us wanted to have seconds!

Year 3 had their dragon egg stolen! We have found lots of evidence that suggests the criminal could be Dr.Parker, the suspicious visitor from the IDR. Police have searched the scene and are currently analysing the evidence.

Year 3 went to see David Walliams’ production of Awful Auntie at Norwich Theatre Royal. It was absolutely hilarious and the children thoroughly enjoyed it (including the interval ice creams)! The children’s behaviour was impeccable and we would highly recommend the show and/or the book!
 
What a busy, but exciting, day we’ve had.

We had a great turnout at our Halloween Cafe. We read the story, ‘I want to be in a scary story’. We then had Halloween themed crackers and made our own moving skeleton hands. If you didn’t get chance to come to our cafe and would like to make a moving hand, check out this website where the video will take you through step by step…
 
Our lucky raffle winners were Ela and Chloe!

Year 3 visited Norwich Cathedral as part of their topic work. They had been learning about sacred places in RE and about materials and their properties in science. They learnt about how the cathedral was built and had a go at building arches using foam bricks and paper. They also tried cutting limestone! Year 3 also investigated different materials in the cathedral and thought about whether each material was fit for purpose.

In science we have been thinking about the properties and suitability of everyday materials in preparation for our school trip this half term. 

We had fun today making predictions and testing them out when making boats made from different materials. Some of the results surprised us! Ask us what we’d most like a boat to be made from.
