Year 3 2016/2017

During Terms 3 and 4, Year 3 are travelling through time!

In Term 3, we began our journey by leaping back to the Stone Age!  We explored how people lived and enjoyed making our own paint by crushing up chalk and charcoal and mixing it with water.   We tried out cave painting on our classroom wall (the outside wall of course!).  It was tricky painting without a paintbrush.  We created our own 'Cueva de las Manos'.

We discovered lots of changes as we jumped into the Bronze Age.  Farming, metal tools, weapons and clay pots.  We made our own clay pots and have been experimenting with weaving.  

We also visited Deal Gym Club where we tried out the different balance bars and rings.
