Here are some of the Stone Age houses we made during a D&T lesson recently. We have had some great discussions about the Stone Age and the children have loved this topic so far. More research to come...

On Monday in Maths we were buying and selling items with money. The children enjoyed the experience of being 'shopkeepers' and 'customers'!

Welcome to 3A!

We've had a great first half-term. 

This is a photo from our Caveman experience last Thursday! We had a great day learning about the Stone Age and surviving as a caveman.

This week, we launched our project. First, we planned an adventure story about a person who goes on an adventure. They set sail on a boat and a storm washes them onto a strange, magical island. The children used the Odysseus story in the background of the painting to inspire their writing. We acted out the story and then made plans on large sugar paper.
