The Gorillas and Elephants have been learning about team building!
They had to build the tallest tower possible using spaghetti and jelly babies…
We learned that it was important to listen to each other, encourage and praise each other and take responsibility for our role in the team.
Year 3 had a fantastic time visiting Smeaton’s Tower on Wednesday!
We enjoyed walking along Plymouth Hoe and observing the sea with its dangerous rocks and potential hazards. The children had opportunities to sketch the Harbour and look carefully at boats on the water. This of course will support our Ocean Wave art project.
The children enjoyed drawing the Lighthouse and walking around its perimeters.
It was an incredible experience to go inside Smeaton’s Tower and climb the steep ladders to the top. What brave children! There are a few pictures below and more in the Gallery.
Spring Term 2018
Just Imagine! - What a super topic! We began by reading extracts from Fantastic beasts and where to find them. The children have learned about and researched different mythical creatures.
Ancient Greeks - It’s been a busy half term learning about the Ancient Greeks. The children had great fun learning different Greek stories and performing them to each other in Puppet plays. They made some super puppets!
Summer Term in Year 3
Are Bugs Important? - The children learned a lot about food chains, food webs and of course the diverse world of mini-beasts. They have hunted for bugs at Heavitree Park had a fantastic visit to Stover Park so they could experience pond dipping.
The children wrote and performed an assembly to their parents to share what they had learned. There was a pretty groovy dance too!
