Safer Internet Day. The Y3 children learned how to stay safe online and what to do if they ever felt unsafe.
Our guided reading work this week has been linked to newspaper reports that have featured the Australian bushfires. Children have answered questions on the reports, drawn pictures and created captions and headlines. We have also linked lots of Geography work and PSHE to this work.

Year 3 have been learning about human skeletons in Science and identifying the different bones in our body. Today we have been building our own skeletons talking about its function and learning scientific names for our bones.
Outdoor Learning with The National Trust
Year 3 have been involved in a National Trust Guardianship Programme. We have looked at habitats and how to encourage wildlife into our gardens throughout the year. The children built hedgehog homes and other habitats. We had an amazing day thinking about our outdoor areas at school and at home. Hope you enjoy our photo's that really celebrate our learning and such an exciting day.
Year 3 children Skyped our friends in India today. We have been linked with this school for about 8 months and our children have written to the children in India and have received letters back. We shared our learning and are amazed at the new experiences this school is giving us. They prepared a wonderful prayer for us today and then talked about their harvest festival celebrations and lots of important Indian symbols. We loved speaking to them, we also shared our harvest preparations and the lovely things we are doing for the elderly in our community. We also showed them pictures and shared our writing of our Viking boat trip to Derwentwater. They were surprised at the wonderful scenery in Cumbria as they live in a very busy city.
Year 3 had an amazing day living the life of a Viking. We had the chance to sail and row a Viking longboat and listen to stories about how Vikings settled and lived in Cumbria. We also spent time with the Viking slaves starting fires, preparing shields, trying on Helmets and holding Viking swords. Sarah showed us what life would be like living in the camp and preparing food for everyone. We had the chance to sample the oat cakes we prepared.
