  • Hunter gathering in Year 3.

    Published 14/09/23, by Andy Mari

    For our Stone Age topic, Year Three stepped into the life of a 'hunter gatherer' in this week's lesson. We discussed that in Stone Age times, there was an undeniable need to survive. We set off into the wilderness (the school field) to gather items that we deemed necessary and crucial to survive. It was difficult to decide which items would have benefitted us during this time period and which were deemed unnecessary.

  • Ruthless Romans in Year 3

    Published 28/01/23, by Andy Mari

    Year Three were fortunate enough to step into the times of the Ruthless Romans last week. We enjoyed an immersive day of learning about Roman battle armour where we even got to try some on and handle it up close. Then, we planned, designed and decorated traditional shields inspired by Roman mosaics and patterns. In the afternoon, we tasted Roman food such as: olives, cheese, grapes and bread (peacock brains were not on the menu unfortunately). As well this, we experienced what it was like to create the ‘tortoise’ formation in the battlefield, our team work and sticking together protected us well from flying objects and battle opponents.
