Sycamore - Year 3
Welcome to Sycamore - Year 3!
We have started off the year by getting stuck into a variety of different lessons! From foraging for stone age food in a role play history lesson, to practising our place value skills in maths, we have certainly been kept busy with our learning over the past few weeks!
In R.E., we are looking at making links between what we know, stories we tell and characters from Christianity that are similar to those in other religions. We started off looking at a familiar story to us; Noah and the Ark! What an honour Noah had to be given such a task by God! We thought about what we would do in his situation and the qualities he had as a man to enable him to do what he did. We then drew Noah and thought of words to describe him.
We were deeply saddened to hear about the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and we spent some time reflecting on what a remarkable monarch she was. We wrote poems and produced a symbolic bouquet of cala lilies as a class in celebration of her life and long reign. We hope you got to see these displayed in the school hall.
As part of our Design and Technology unit this term, we have been investigating seasonal foods and trying foods from different countries. We were given a tasting platter of fruit, some we knew and some we didn’t, and we had to identify what it was and what we thought of it. We then set about planning our own fruit kebab which we are very excited about making in the next few weeks! Can you name these foods?
