Year 3 - Sweden
Welcome to Sweden class. We are in Year 3 and our teacher is Mrs Taylor. Mrs Long, Mrs Peel and Mrs Forsdick are our Teaching Assistants.
We had a lovely time and beautiful weather for our trip!
We enjoyed learning lots more about Anglo Saxon village life and we became History Detectives – ‘listening’ to evidence from artefacts that gave us clues about how the Anglo Saxons lived.
We looked at the houses, the village layout, and examined artefacts in the museum including pottery, helmets and glass beads.
The children loved dressing as Anglo Saxons (but the wool was ‘itchy’!), and enjoyed having a try at playing Nine Man’s Morris.
We also enjoyed having our picnic in the woods and listening to the robin singing to us from the branches up above. A lovely day!
Our Topic this Spring Term is Spain.We have looked at two Spanish artists:Picasso and Eduardo Enchillida.
The children have explored Cubism and creating self-portraits in the style of Picasso.
After our visit to the Sainsbury Centre we explored abstract art through collage and the work of Eduardo Enchillida.
This half term we have been learning about Plants in Science.
We held a fun Science Café where we planted sunflower seeds.We talked about the parts of a plant, their function, and what plants need to grow healthily.
We also linked our learning to our English work on The Promise, and designed our own colourful city window boxes to cheer up a grey, drab and sad place.
We had fun playing the computer simulation where we had to get the right conditions for the plant to grow.
If that wasn’t enough, we sketched real flowering plants and looked closely at their parts.
Then we enjoyed drinks and biscuits!
