Autumn Term 2
Our topic is: How does Cambridge compare to Inverness?
Our clay Loch Ness Monsters.
Anyone for a mint tea? Well, after spending a day learning about Morocco, we knew that tourists there are offered it, but we wanted to find out whether this was what Moroccans drank - one of the many questions Year 3 thought of, as part of our International work, to ask our partner Moroccan school in Tafraout in the Atlas mountains. Can you use the photos to guess what else we asked?
Tom brought in his family's kilt to show us. 
We then painted our own tartan designs.
Autumn Term 2020
Our topic this term is Castles!
Homework challenges for Autumn 1:

Make a model of a castle from junk or a construction kit. Take a photo and bring it to school to share with the class.
We started our topic by re-enacting the Battle of Hastings. We divided the class into Normans and Saxons and made swords and shields for the famous battle in 1066.
What a wonderful day we had travelling back to the Norman era in Shelford. Making purses and pies (amongst many other things) and learning about what life was like in the 1200s.
What great team working took place in Forest School today - all sorts, from planting, to building Castles and bug homes, appeared with some super cooperation and kindness.
Can you recognise who has painted these self portraits? Which members of our class can you spot?
