Together, we can do it!

Year 3 Poetry Workshop

In year 3 we had a Poetry workshop where the children discussed how to perform poetry with a librarian from Leicester City. The children went back to their classroom and selected a poem to learn in groups and later performed their poem to the rest of year 3. The children really enjoyed this session.

Year 3 Exhibition

How were the Ancient Egyptians a civilisation?

In year 3 the children went on a visit to New Walk Museum to research information about the Ancient Egyptians. In the project the children looked into Egyptian writing, farming, clothes, buildings, Egyptian gods, mummies and pyramids. The children enjoyed showing their learning to parents in our classroom exhibitions and watching them make Egyptian objects.

Year 3 Exhibition

For the Autumn term, the children looked at the question ‘Which is the best place to live: City or Countryside?’ The children looked at our local area, Bradgate Park and Stonehurst Farm. The children were able to discuss similarities and differences, giving reasons for which one they would be prefer to live in.

The children carried out a variety of mapping skills, wrote letters to a rural primary school and created a video to show off our school. Finally, the children worked with our Artist in Residence to create silk banners depicting both city and countryside life.
