Transition Meeting for parents/carers, of pupils going into Year 3 in September 2018. We look forward to seeing you there.
Year 3 Bee Keeping: The Year 3 classes welcomed Fearne's Grandad, Dave, to talk to them all about Bee Keeping. They were fascinated by all the different facts he shared in addition to seeing protective clothing and seeing the bees themselves! What an amazing experience.
Why not read the Year 3 ‘Bee Amazing Fact’ books made by the Year 3 pupils coming to our school library soon.
Year 3 Egyptian Exhibition: The Year 3 children completed their Ancient Egypt Topic by holding an Ancient Egyptian Exhibition in the School Hall. Parents were invited to come along to school to share the Year 3 classes Egyptian models, hieroglyphics and artwork on Friday 20th July. Parents and visitors had an opportunity to browse the stalls before voting for their favourite stand. Thank you to our parent/carers for such a good turn out.
Year 3 Bristol Museum Visit Term 6: Year 3 enjoyed a fantastic trip to Bristol Museum. They looked around the Egyptian exhibition and found out lots of information about what life was like for people in Egyptian times. They also got to handle lots of Egyptian artefacts and had to work out what objects were and also how they were used in Egyptian times. The children are now looking forward to using all of this knowledge to help them put together their Egyptian exhibition at the end of this term.
World Book Day 1st March 2018: pupils and staff came to school dressed in their fantastic World Book Day costumes. The children were able to take part in a variety of Dr Seuss based activities within school. Thank you to all our parents and carers for your support with the wonderful costumes.
Book Launch at Waterstones Saturday 24th February: Year 3 have been publishing their own books based on their theme from last term - the Iron Age. On Saturday they had their own stand at Waterstones to launch their book. Parents, carers and pupils were invited to come along to the book launch. Well done Year 3 children and staff for all your hard work, they look fabulous!
Raise The Roof Term 2: Year 3 and 4 were joined by children from Mendip Green and Kewstoke Primary Schools to sing songs from around the world. They were led by Mrs Anne Clough, from North Somerset Music Service, for a fantastic afternoon of singing together. Songs included Wonderful World and The Mexican Counting song. The children had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and all sang brilliantly.
Year 3 Stone Age and Iron Age WOW Days: At the end of Term 1 Year 3 had a great WOW Day to end their Stone Age topic. The children designed and created cave paintings, made jewellery and made their own hand prints like the Stone Age people would have done. They watched Miss Daniels gut fish and experienced how it would have been cooked over an open fire!
At the start of Term 3, the Year 3 children enjoyed their Iron Age WOW day. Children were treated to a very special visitor from the Iron Age, where they took part in a variety of activities such as creating Iron Age shields and spears and completing warrior training.
