Year 3 have had a fantastic start to the year exploring our class novel 'Stig of the Dump' by Clive King. We have uncovered the secrets of Stig's dump and the relationship between Barney and his new beloved friend, Stig. The children have been writing their own diary entries from the perspective of Barney and will be summarising what has happened in what we've read so far, before moving onto predicting the next events.
Enthusiastically, we have been travelling through time, venturing into life during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We have created our own art work representing Stonehenge using watercolours and black paper to show the silhouette of the famous landmark.
We are very excited to be going on a brand new trip to Sarehole Mill at the end of the half term!
The children in 3 Yellow spent the afternoon creating their own shields, taking inspiration from those in the Iron Age. We discussed why people from the Iron Age had shields and what the Celts would have used them for. I think are some fearsome, heroic warriors in Year 3!
