Welcome back to autumn term 2. This half term we will be looking at Inverness and the surrounding area, exploring the similarities and differences between the Highlands of Scotland and Shelford.

What a gorgeous day for Forest School - building hibernation dens for hedgehogs and insects and chasing the falling leaves in the sunlight. Bliss!
The Battle of Hastings 2021
We took to the field again this year to re-enact the famous battle. There was some great marching and sword fighting but sadly the Saxons were defeated with King Harold dying with an arrow in his eye.
Times Tables
We will be starting the year working on our 8 x tables. We will be learning an 8 times table rap, making 8 times table fortune tellers and playing rounds of 8 times table bingo. We attach the links to the songs and a quick fire times table game.
Remember: I ate and I ate till I was sick on the floor. 8 times 8 is 64.
In Art we have been learning about the proportions of the face and have painted self portraits to go in the hall. Who do you recognise?
The Normans landed in Year 3 today and the children were able to enjoy archery and battle charging, as well as the more gentler pursuits of letter illumination and cooking, and nosegay and finger guard making.
