Christmas Concert - December 2019
The Year 3 children performed as part of the Christmas Concert this term. This was their first performance as a class and they didn't disappoint! They managed to play their patterns with their group and listened to each other carefully. Brilliant playing Year 3 and we look forward to sharing their amazing drumming with you next term!
We have continued to build upon our Spanish knowledge from Key Stage 1 and have been learning about: Greetings and 'All about me', asking for and giving names, saying how old we are and how we feel, numbers 0-20 and colours.. During the last two weeks we have been learning about Winter traditions in Spain.

Autumn 1 was a great start to KS2 for Year 3!
We learned that not only can we be geographers but we are ourselves geography!
By learning about our location, we have been able to find our place in the world (and beyond). We even created our alien address to pinpoint where we are in space!
Moving beyond Torbay, we began to explore the geography of Dartmoor and linked this to our science learning about rocks. As artists we created our impressions of Dartmoor using torn paper collage, take a look at our stunning display below!
Following on from our learning about rocks, it was time to send Autumn 1 out with a bang. In this lesson, we learned how fossils are formed and historical artefacts are buried using jelly sweets as dead organisms and artefacts, and layers of bread as the sediment. We then applied pressure with some heavy books and left for several hours. At the end of the day, we became archaeologists and palaeontologists as we uncovered the buried treasures and fossils one layer of squashed bread ‘rock’ at a time.
