Celebration of Learning Event - Tuesday 11th July 2017
Year 3 classes also shared their work and projects with parents and carers
Year 3 Ancient Egypt Topic: The Year 3 children completed their Ancient Egypt Topic by holding an Ancient Egyptian Invention Exhibition in the School Hall. They created models, writing, hieroglyphics, persuasive videos and artwork as a culmination of a term of work on the civilization of Ancient Egypt.
At the beginning of Term 4, visitors from across the St Martin's School Community were invited in to listen to children at the exhibition and browse the stalls before voting for their favourite stand, the winners of the stand receiving an exciting prize. Thank you to our parents/carers for such a good turn out.
Year 3 Waterstones Book Stand: Year 3 have been working extremely hard over terms one and two to produce a picture book as a sequel to Satoshi Kitamura’s Stone Age Boy. Iron Age Child is a culmination of a series of mini projects that have lead to the final product of a picture book. The children have learnt how to write non–chronological reports on Iron age housing, Iron age lifestyle and weapons. Also children learnt how to write effective discussion texts. Another mini project was writing a voyage and return story in keeping with the ‘Stone age Boy’. They also sketched animal pictures, peer critiqued their work and then re-drafted them until the children were proud of their final attempts. All children in Year 3 contributed in some way to their class’ book.
To celebrate the success of this project, Waterstones Booksellers (Sovereign Centre, Weston-super-Mare) kindly agreed to let our children promote their books to the general public for the day. All children and Y3 staff that attended thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

Year 3 WOW Day:
Year 3 children spent two wonderful WOW days at the end of Term , to celebrate the end of their Stone Age Topic and to introduce the beginning of their Iron Age Topic. On the Stone Age WOW day children watched fish being prepared and cooked 'Stone Age' style, they made Stone Age bracelets and created Stone Age cave paintings. On the 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. Pictures of the two days can be found on the Schools Twitter account: @stmartinsworle
