Welcome to Class 3: years 3 and 4. The class is taught by Mrs Woods on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday morning and Mrs Smart on Wednesday afternoon, Thursdays and Fridays.
We like to base as much of our learning as we can around a range of topics from the Romans to the Rainforests. As well as our lessons in class, we use every opportunity to make the most of our wonderful outdoor resources to help us learn and have new experiences.
We hope you enjoy seeing all of the wonderful things we get up to this year!
Class 3 visited Buckfast Abbey to find out about how it prepares for Christmas – they even spoke to a monk and asked LOTS of questions!
On Monday 16th January Class 3 were transported back in time to AD49 and transformed into the Dumnonii tribe: they looked amazing! We were then visited by a Roman soldier who tried to convince us to accept Roman rule. He shared lots of great replicas and artefacts with us and taught us about Roman life. Our day culminated in an afternoon of vigorous training in Roman invasion tactics and a mock battle!
The Roman soldier commented on their superb behaviour, knowledge and impressive outfits. We are so proud of the children.
World Book Day:
The children in class 3 have made some wonderful potato characters for World Book Day! Can you guess any of them?
Class 3 ready for their performance in this year’s nativity!
On 11th November, Class 3 visited Torquay museum to learn more about the life of an Ancient Egyptian. We dressed up, played Egyptians games and even mummified our student teacher, Miss Houcke! We also got to see Torquay museum’s real boy mummy, Psamtek, who was only 8 years old when he died! Wow!
