Welcome to Year 3
with Miss Newton, Mrs Goulty & Mrs Field
Stone Age Day
Today we had a special Stone Age Day. We dressed up and went outside to build our own Stone Age Shelters. We also researched Stone Age Mammals and wrote a piece of writing using the ‘Dictogloss’ method.
We used shells to make Stone Age jewellery and carefully constructed Stonehenge out of biscuits. We had a lovely, busy day and even managed to fit in some Stone Age singing!
Mr Walbank Visit - Artefcats from the Stone Age, Bronze Age & Iron Age
Today Mr Walbank came to visit us who has found and collected many artefacts from the Stone Age to Iron Age time. He talked to us about where and when he discovered some of these amazing finds. Some of which were near Silsden, not too far away. We were able to hold and feel some of his amazing discoveries, these included: coins, a flint arrowhead and a stone axe head. How amazing it was to hold something in our hands that was actually a few thousand years old! Mr Walbank also talked to us about what life might have been like for someone living during that time period.
Animals including Humans
As an introduction to our new science topic ‘Humans and other animals.’ We looked at the remarkable achievements of sportsmen and women. We learned that Usain Bolt could run 100m in 9.68 seconds, so we decided to see how far we could run in that time. We did very well, but he was three times faster than most of us.
