This half term, to support learning on our topic ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ Year 3 visited York’s Chocolate Story. We enjoyed a workshop in the morning retelling Roald Dahl’s much loved novel. In the afternoon, we went on a tour of the Chocolate Story. We learned all about the history of chocolate and the importance of the factories in York for the local community. We also enjoyed seeing some sights on our walk from the coach, particularly York Minster!
During Autumn 2, Year 3 learned about Ancient Egypt. The children really enjoyed the topic and were even lucky enough to have a Pharaoh come to visit! We went on a journey back through time to find out what it was like to be a king or queen of Ancient Egypt. Throughout the term we; wrote our own myths, built our own shadufs and made papyrus. We were certainly ready for Christmas break! Here are a few photos:
Thank you to everyone who took part in this years Spooky Dress Up Day, you all looked great!
It has been a busy first term for Year 3. Here is a selection of photos showing just some of the activities we have been up to over the past 8 weeks. I am very proud of the start the children have made to the year making huge effort in all subjects across the curriculum including art and DT. Children have also enjoyed some well deserved Golden Time in which they developed their teamwork and chose to undertake their own research about our topic, Black History.
This half term the children have enjoyed learning about Black History. We have focused on the story of Ruby Bridges, one of the first African American children to be permitted to attended a previously segregated school. The children have explored Ruby’s story and her impact on the Civil Rights Movement through books, poetry and drama. The children created some frozen pictures retelling the main events leading up to her starting school.
