    This week, Year 3 have been developing their musical talents. We rocked out and sang 'Don't stop believing'. Then we added in the additional challenge of playing the glockenspiels focusing on the notes F G A.  Later on in the week, we had the opportunity to take part in a musical workshop with students from the University of Hertfordshire.

  • 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.

    Year Three travelled back in time last week and stepped into The Stone Age. On our trip to Celtic Harmony we engaged in various activities such as trading and bartering, hunting and weaponry, fire-making and lots more.
