On Wednesday the 5th February Year 3 went on a trip to Beaumanor Hall. We did lots of activities learning about how the Celts lived. We learnt how to go to battle, throw spears and
play football with a Roman head. We visited a Round House and learnt how they would live, work and entertain. Grinding wheat to make flour with a stone, using drums to communicate, making beads from clay and apply war paint to make us look fierce. We also went on a hunt to find clues and solve a puzzle. A great time was had by all and the children were a credit to the school. See the photos below.
What a great day we all had on Thursday dressing up as rock stars for our whole federation TT Rockstars Day. All the children competed to see who was the best at times tables.
The children did times table activities as well as TT Rockstar.
Please encourage your children to continue with it as it’s a really fun way to learn their tables.

Thank you to everyone who has donated a book we have a nice little library of books to share among Year 3. When your child has read the book they bring home they can bring it back and swap it for another one.
In science today we have been looking at air resistance. We have had great fun making parachutes, looking at what is the best shape and size. The children made one parachute and then we took them outside to test them it was very windy and unfortunately we lost a couple. We came back inside and discussed what made a good parachute. Then the children tried again with the knowledge just learnt. Well done to Zach and Anya who’s parachute was the best.
