Poplar and Willow Classes had a wonderful time visiting the church where they learned about the different aspects of harvest. The church helpers taught us many valuable lessons and we all had a fantastic time!
A week ago we welcomed two new classes to Year 3 and the all settled in so well we thought they deserved a (pretend) trip away. As part of our LCC lessons, we have been learning about the Mediterranean and why it is such a popular tourist destination, so we decided to find out. We made our airline tickets and passports and jetted off to Rome! Everyone had a super time and learned lots about different countries in Europe.
We have had lots of fun designing a playground as our end of term project. First we had to do some market research and made a survey to ask children what playground equipment they like. We presented our results in a bar chart. Then we used catalogues to find the things we wanted to buy. We had a budget of £10,000 and had to use our adding skills to work out the total. We also used geography skills to draw maps of our playgrounds.
Today we had a visit from Sarah (charlotte’s mummy) who is an occupational therapist. She told us all about her job helping people and how she adapts homes to support people with different needs. It was interesting learning how everyday tasks like taking a bath can be so tricky for wheelchair users. We designed a home for them with changes to make life easier.
