Art - Stone Age Cave Paintings

Year 3 have created their own cave painting using oil pastels and really enjoyed using their hands and fingers to blend in the colours, just like how a Stone Age artist would!

Did we used to be apes?

Our new topic is called 'Did we used to be apes?' This is an exciting topic where we explore inheritance and evolution. We have an upcoming science workshop where we look at evolution, fossils and skeletons. Please see the attached home learning grid for additional hom learning. Our new PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays and suitable outdoor PE kits need to be worn.

Why was London burning?

This half term, we will be exploring our topic question 'Why was London burning?' We will be reading 'Toby and the Great Fire of London' to find out about life back in 1966 and comparing it to London now. We will be exploring England’s capital city (London) and learning about how the emergency services have changed over time (focusing on Florence Nightingale - nursing and the fire service). We will be reading 'Samuel Pepys' diary and will be writing our own diary entries. Did you know that the fire was rumoured to have started in a bakery?
