Our Art border for this page was inspired by our topic 'Poles Apart' and the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)
Year 3 have stepped back in time and have been learning about the Stone Age this week. In history the children learnt about where the Stone Age sits on a timeline and had a go at ordering some events. They have also had first hand experience of being an archaeologist extracting chocolate chips from cookies and looked at things archaeologists have discovered and what it tells us about what life was like in the Stone Age. The children have been enthusiastic and inspired by the topic and have enjoyed the Horrible Histories clips.
We have been working on developing the children’s growth mindset and working with others and the children had a challenge of making mini rafts. They tested them out on the brook on Wednesday afternoon and were amazed to see them float along! We were impressed with their perseverance in tying the sticks together and their creativity making sails for the rafts.
