In gymnastics, we have been practising travelling and balancing. We have also practised using the equipment safely including the benches and the wall bars. 


Making a Fruit Stew

In English, we have been reading the story of Ug, boy genius of the Stone Age. In the book, Ug is disappointment by how cold and hard things are. He doesn't like his stone trousers, his cold cave, the cold food that he eats or how hard his stone football is! To help Ug, we have written instructions to teach Ug to make a warm fruit stew. Before writing the instructions, we had a go at making the fruit stew and then tasted it. 


The recipe

3 plums

150g of blackberries

1 tbsp of honey

1 or 2 tbsp of sunflower seeds 


Last week, year 3 became Egyptian scribes. We journeyed into a pyramid to decode the hieroglyphics on the wall by torchlight. It was very challenging but we found out lots of facts. Here is what the hieroglyphics said:

  • They made wigs out of wool. 
  • They shaved off all their hair. 
  • They used mouldy bread as medicine.
  • They thought make up had healing powers. 
  • They built over 130 pyramids. 
  • They wore white to reflect the sun. 

What are we reading for pleasure in year 3?

In 3S, we have just finished reading 'Charlie Turns Into A Chicken' and will move onto the next book in the series. In 3G, we are reading 'The Boy Who Grew Dragons'.
