Launch Day Summer 1: Anglo-Saxon
Year 3 kicked off our Anglo Saxon launch day by sharing some fantastic homework pieces: timelines, helmets, swords, shields, information posters and sculptures to name a few. After a short quiz to launch our learning off, we learned about the timeline of events during the Anglo Saxon period, putting them in order and discussing what happened. Year 3 then transformed into archaeologists, examining some fascinating artefacts such as the Sutton Hoo treasure, a famous Anglo Saxon helmet, amulets, jewellery, cooking utensils and tools used in daily life. We discussed what was special about them before creating a fact file and online information poster to show our learning.
In the afternoon, year 3 finished the day off by creating our own Anglo Saxon jewellery using art materials, thinking carefully about the designs, materials and shapes used at that time.
Launch Day Spring 1: The Romans
Launch Day Autumn 2: Welcome to London!
In the afternoon we looked at London's geography today. We researched London’s main landmarks using Google Maps and created posters of what we discovered. To finish the day off, year 3 created London’s skyline, coming up with some fantastic observational artwork.
Launch Day Autumn 1
Year 3 kicked off the school year with some fantastic work all about The Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We explored the different periods and looked at what life was like back then. We learnt about some of the differences between each period, such as what weapons were used or what food was eaten.
In the afternoon, we created Stone Age timelines, wrote stories in the character of a Stone Age child and finished the day off with some of our own cave art pieces. A tremendous effort from everyone who had returned to school, it was a pleasure to see each individual’s determination to succeed in every task. It was a challenge, but one that was willingly undertaken and completed to a high standard.
