Year 3 have settled in well. This half-term, our topic question is ‘Lost in the Woods, What Would You Do?’ We have studied compass points and put these into practice through various activities (the last of which being a gingerbread hunt). This led nicely to our next project, which will be baking gingerbread men for the Christmas fair.
In science, we have moved on to studying light. The children will be able to give you examples of both natural and manufactured light. Our reading and writing lessons have taken us deep into the woods with Hansel and Gretel. We have used this to write a diary entry from the perspective of Hansel or Gretel.
Year 3 are very much looking forward to the Christmas break, after all their hard work.
