Autumn Term 2018
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 have been making castles out of cardboard with drawbridges that open and shut. We printed the walls with sponges and made people to stand in the windows. If you look carefully you might see a knight trying to attack each castle.
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 an amazing trip we had to Hedingham Castle! We played a jousting game, learned who might live in a castle and how to lay siege to one amongst many other things. As if that wasn't enough, we had a glorious day of sunshine.
The Year 3 museum to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the opening of our school.
Our class brought in all sorts of objects for the museum- from photos and coins to microscopes and even a dolls pram.
Science is noisy! But with the help of Data Loggers, we have been finding out just how noisy, comparing by measuring the decibels of sounds.
