We took part in 4 different activities for our Mayan afternoon. We created vibrant masks, tasted different types of hot chocolate, looked at how the Mayans counted and played Pok-A-Tok, which is an Ancient Mayan throwing game.

Our first Topic this year is Meet The Croods. We are learning what life was like during the Stone Age.

All of the updates below are from this year's Year 3 children. We have left them here so you can see some of the great things you can look forward to next year! Next Week, we will be setting you a challenge so visit back here soon. We can't wait to meet you!

Take care and I hope you enjoy the video made predominantly by one of our pupils, Myah!

Today, Elms went on a nature walk within the local area to investigate if plants change throughout the seasons and to see what evidence of living things there are all around us.

 

We took photos of the landscape and we will be comparing the photos we have taken in March to photos we will take again in May. We will observe if any changes have taken place.
