You are such an amazing class and I am always so impressed by your hard work, your enthusiasm and your commitment to doing really well. Over the next few weeks or so, you will be continuing to work hard learning some interesting things whilst you are at home which you will find on the Parents section under 'Isolation' - Year 3. I am available on the class email address at firstname.lastname@example.org (Please use this sensibly to tell me about how you are getting on, and anything exciting you have been learning, creating or achieving). Feel free to share any photographs of projects / art / designs / structures / experiments / etc. that you may have produced. I look forward to finding out how your learning is going soon.

Making Stone Age Houses
In Art and Design this week, we have been making Neolithic houses as part of our study of the Stone Age. We have also been learning about the ruins known as Skara Brae.
You can't beat drumming!
Dorset Music Service treated Year 3 to an African Drumming workshop today. It was amazing. We had some difficult challenges to complete, but we did it. We also beat the record for the fastest drumming in the Dorset Music Service!
This half term's RE unit has been about Creation. We have been outside to see what aspects of God's creation we could find. Plus we investigated which plants might help with our History topic on people living in the Stone Age in learning what vegetation people might have gathered and eaten back then.
Name those flowers!
In Science we have been learning about plants. At the end of our topic, Charlie's mum kindly gave some plants from her florist shop to look at. Some of them we recognised and others were not so familiar. We used some clues to try and discover their names and attributes.
Our Christmas play
Our Year 3 and 4 Christmas play this year is called 'Stable Manners'. As you can see, we have some interesting characters in our play including some animals, cowboys, eggs, rugs and some frosty finger dancers.
As part of our History topic on the Egyptians, we had an Egyptian afternoon in which we enjoyed learning about how paper was made; how Egyptians lived and survived agriculturally; the significance of the tree of life; and the way to make Egyptian brushes.
Year 3 raising money for charity with Odd Socks Day!
We had fun in our Topic lesson today trying out some Egyptian mummification. First we washed the body; then we removed the vital organs, including the brain (but making sure we left the heart!); next we placed the organs into the canopic jars; and finally we started wrapping the bodies up. The only job left now is to lay each body in its own sarcophagus with the family wealth.
Today Year 3 remembered all those who have given their lives in service for this country and for all those who continue to serve in the forces today. The class learnt to sing 'O God our help in ages past' and we lit four candles: a red one for the RAF; a blue one for the Royal Navy; a green one for the Military; and a white one to remind us that Jesus laid down His own life for the world.
