Archaeologists for the afternoon!

Year 3 had great fun this week as they became archaeologists for the afternoon and went on a mini dig.  We excavated fossils and other remains as we kicked off our new topic – Tremors.  The children are really excited  to learn all about  volcanoes, tsunamis, rocks and soil and the history of Pompeii.  It’s going to be explosive!!


World Book Day Thursday 2nd March 2017

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed taking part in World Book Day on Thursday.  There were some fabulous outfits including Willy Wonka, Horrid Henry, Cat in the Hat, to name but a few!  Thanks so much, parents for making the effort to sort out costumes – the children looked thrilled to become their favourite characters.  Year 3 completed some author reviews as part of the day and found out lots of facts about Eva Ibbotson, author of our current Teaching of Reading book – The Abominables.
