A Year 3 Class Post

Year 3 Learners this term

Year 3 have been working very hard over the last couple of weeks. Here is a taste of all the learning they have been doing.

In RE we continued to explore the question of: What does it mean to be part of a Faith community? Having visited the local church and explored virtual mosques we then invited Mrs Meghiref, Cerine’s mum, to come and speak to us about what being part of Moslem community means to her. We learned all about the activities that happen at the Mosque and the key beliefs that are so important. It was fascinating.

 

 

 

 

In English we have been report writers. First we wrote very detailed reports about our amazing trip to Celtic Harmony Camp. Then we applied our new reporting skills after watching an incredible real event that happened in San Francisco. We really enjoyed reporting on this.

Here is an example of one of our reports.

 

 

 

 

In Science we finished our learning about fossils by excavating the fossils we had made and then interviewing Mary Anning thinking about how she would have responded to finding such a great fossil. When we took the role of Mary Anning we had to think like a real scientist and explain how the fossil might have got there and what it could tell us about living things in the past.

In History we learned about The Amesbury Archer – an early Bronze Age man whose burial site was discovered near Stonehenge. As Historians, we thought about what we could learn about Bronze Age life from this site and the artefacts that were found there. We then designed our own Bronze Age burial sites.

Despite being so busy in school, we still found time to visit the North Herts Museum in Hitchin. We were particularly interested to see the fossil collection there including the fossilised bones of Pliosaur – a marine reptile from the Jurassic period. We were amazed to discover that archeologists had found prehistoric objects from the Bronze Age and the Iron Age in our local area including Bronze axes, a Chieftain’s burial site and Quern stones that we knew how to use from our trip to Celtic Harmony Camp.

What a busy couple of weeks!
