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!!
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.
