Temple Newsam Farm
Class 3 visited Temple Newsam Farm as part of our work on the book Charlotte's Web. We enjoyed meeting the animals and learning all about life on a farm. We looked closely at the barns in preparation for our descriptive writing in class.
Class 3 have been attending a gardening after school club. Here they are watering and weeding the raised beds. They have grown leeks, garlic and strawberries so far! They have also had lots of fun.
Year 3 travelled to Murton Park in York to spend the day as Roman soldiers. We dressed up as soldiers, signed contracts using roman numerals, made clay pots, threw javelins and fought sandbags with wooden swords.
Class 3 had a lovely time when their parents came to visit; they watched the Christmas performance, did a lovely activity, had a look at their children's books and enjoyed hot chocolate and biscuits.
Class 3 have spent the last 3 weeks investigating chocolate, where it comes from and how it is made. This week they have designed their own chocolate bars in their 'factory groups' and then made adverts to promote their invention! Good work everyone!

Romans for a Day
Class 3 went on a fantastic trip to Murton Park where we were Romans for the day. We made clay oil lamps, wrote our names in Latin and did weapons training. We even scared away as Celt who was trying to invade the fort!
Year 3 led our Harvest Festival celebration. This year the theme was Caring and Sharing. The children used the letters in the word Harvest to explore different ideas such as how some people do not have enough to eat and how important it is to share with others. The children made harvest sheaves of bread which were shared with each class. Mr Robertson and Mrs Brady took part in a special Ready, Steady, Cook challenge to teach everyone about things being unfair sometimes. It was a lovely occasion and we joined with our parents to give thanks to God for the wonderful harvest we all enjoy.
Today we did an activity to practice our multiplication and division called 'Mathopoloy'. Our eight winners were Yosan, Efron, Hermela, Peniel, Isabella, Seth, Ike and Senai - well done everybody!
Harlow Carr Trip
Class 3 had a great day den building in the woods at Harlow Carr. Everyone worked well in teams and enjoyed constructing the shelters using each other's ideas. Although it was a bit rainy, we also had fun walking around the gardens, exploring everything there is to see there.
Classes 2 & 3 had a visit from a local artist, Peter. He showed us lots of different works of art and we had to be picture detectives e.g. Finding a painting with a horse in, a painting with a storm. Then we worked together to create our own picture. It was lots of fun!
Harlow Carr Trip
C;ass 3 visited Harlow Carr to learn about the weather. We explored the gardens, looked at the weather station and learnt about the water cycle - and the sun shone all day!
