The children had a busy day visiting the Roman Baths. They absolutely loved dressing up in togas and tunics; learning about how the Romans would have prepared food; and creating their own mosaic patterns. The children also enjoyed touring the baths and were fascinated by the naturally heated water!
A lovely day had by all!
The children were thrilled to meet the wonderful alpacas and to learn about how they live. Some children even overcame their fears of the Alpacas and gave them a little stroke. The children loved learning about the food that the Alpacas ate, how to care for them and the countries which they come from.
The children loved learning about the features of a playscript and were given the chance to work together in rehearsing and performing their own in front of the class. The children's creativity and enthusiasm made the performances very enjoyable. Well done Otter Class!
A great start to Year 3!
Year 3 have had an excellent first few weeks settling in to their new classroom. This week, Otter Class have enjoyed exploring poetry and have looked at different types of poems including The Pig by Roald Dahl and Chocolate Cake by Michael Rosen. Embracing the season of Autumn, we have worked hard to use our knowledge of similes and expanded noun phrases to create our own autumnal poems. The children are very proud of the poems they have created and look forward to sharing some at the Harvest Celebration in a couple weeks time!
