Spring Term 2022

What a busy lot we have been in Year 3 this term! The children have enjoyed a variety of activities related to our Stone Age topic, from making woolly mammoths, to creating 'cave art' (who knew tables could make such great caves!) We have also been exploring the idea of belonging in R.E, and looked at how celebrating Diviali in the Hindu faith might make a child feel that they belong to their community. Have a look at our photos to see what we have created.

Thursday 1st April


Wow, what a fun last day of term we had in Year 3 celebrating the end of our Africa topic! We came dressed in African inspired clothing (either by colour or design) and started by making some African themed jewellery. After play, we welcomed Kwame (via Zoom) who did some story-telling and drumming with us. As he could not be here in person with his selection of drums, we made very good use of our tables instead to follow along with his excellent drumming demonstration. After lunch we learnt about the Ndebele tribe of South Africa and the unique way in which they decorate the outside of their houses. We copied their bold use of shape and colour to create our own designs. Have a look at the photo gallery below to see how our day went.
