Wow! What an amazing afternoon we have had in Year 3, meeting Guy and all his amazing rainforest creatures. We learned so much from him. He brought in a big range of animals such as stick insects, cockroaches, a scorpion, a poison dart frog, an African snail, a red-kneed tarantula, a millipede, a corn snake and a huge marine toad - that had a good move around! We can’t wait to find out lots more about these creatures ourselves now we’ve had chance to meet them ... and even touch some!
PE has been so much fun in Year 3 this term, linked to our rainforest topic. It involved lots of problem solving and collaboration as well as stretching and bending our bodies. Can you tell what the human letters spell out? Hint: it’s our topic this term.
Our Visit to Sealy 2019
What a fantastic trip Year 3 had to Sealy today, to find out more about the company who are sponsoring our bedtime stories project. The class loved looking round the offices and factory. They met lots of different staff who did a range of roles and enjoyed listening to them tell us about their specific job. We learned about the sewing machines, the springs, the warehouse and so much more. All the staff were so lovely with our inquisitive pupils who asked lots of good questions. We all thoroughly enjoyed it! We even got chance at the end to test out how comfy the beds are!
