We had a fantastic day at Celtic Harmony learning a little bit more about 'The Stone Age'. Some of the activities included den building in teams, making a Stone Age dinner which involved crushing herbs to create a soup, as well as learning how animals were hunted and caught using spears. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and learned lots more through the use of our hands on activities.

Year 3 Curriculum Overview

Welcome to Year 3 Sydney

Welcome back, I hope you all had a lovely Summer break and are ready for the new academic year as Year 3's. Our first week back in school was very busy and the children have started to adjust themselves well for KS2. We have focused on the standards for KS2 and are starting to really focus on this in our work.

Thank you to those of you that created some amazing work over the holidays based on our new class name 'Sydney.' I can see a lot of work, time and research went into these projects and you should all be very proud of your efforts.

Well done!
