Year 3

Year 3 had a super time at the zoo today. We got to see lots of animals and also learnt all about food chains. We also got to see the skull of a rhinoceros and jaw of an elephant! Did you know elephants only have four teeth and can have up to 6 sets of teeth throughout their lifetime?

What an amazing morning we had at the museum for our sparkling start to our new topic -The Romans. The children learnt all about the Romans in Rutland, completed a Roman treasure hunt, handled artefacts and enjoyed various art activities. A brilliant way to start our topic.

Year 3 had a great time creating their amazing dragon eyes. They designed  them first in their sketchbooks and then made them out of clay. I think you will agree they have done a brilliant job! Well done year 3.

Monday (19/11/18) saw the children presenting their fabulous finish to parents and grandparents.They did an amazing job and presented a performance poem and a stone age version of the song 'We will rock you'.
