All of us at 3JD are learning about the Stoneage this week as part of our ‘Tribal Tales’ topic. We are looking forward to learning about Stonage this half-term. We have already discovered that they had tools and weapons made from stone and also invented fire! We hope this topic is as exciting as our last topic called ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’
Year 3 had their WOW day today for their new topic, ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’. Alongside tasting a variety of chocolate, they also managed to make some of their own!
Year 5 had their WOW day today building marble loop the loops as an introduction to their ‘Scream Machine’ topic. Mission accomplished for this group!
Year 3 had a super WOW day today about chocolate. They spent the day designing their own wrappers and sampling a whole range of different chocolate – perhaps their favourite activity! They were also able to improve their data handling skills in the I.T. suite.
Year 5 had a fantastic time at Hooke Court and were fully immersed into Tudor life…
Some Year Six pupils took part in a carousel of reading challenges related to their class text ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo. Pupils are considering character, plot, retrieval of information and analysis of language.
Year 3 have been sketching fossils as part of their Dinosaurs topic. They focussed on technique when using pencil to draw, achieving variety in tone.
