I can do all things through him who strengthens me

Welcome to Year 3 in KS2!

We all had a relaxing break and are ready to begin our Year 3 adventure together.

The topic that we are doing this term is about the Rainforests and will cover the eco systems within the forest, and how plants and animals depend on each other. Watch this space to see the fun we are having along the way and updates on what we are learning.

Cadbury World

Year 3 had an amazing day at Cadbury World. We learnt about the history of chocolate and where it comes from. There was even had a delicious pot of melted chocolate for us all to try.

This was definitely one of our favorite trips!

Gist’s Child Road Safety Programme

We enjoyed an interesting and informative afternoon when Mick and Bogdan brought a lorry to school and talked to us about road safety.

They helped everyone to understand what a lorry driver can see and how long it takes a lorry to stop.

Harvest Service

 Year 3 read some of their acrostic poems as part of the Harvest Service at St. Mary’s Church, Whaplode.

Roots to Food

We had a fantastic and very beneficial time on Thursday, when Chef Darren from ‘Roots to Food’ came into school to share wonderful cooking and health and fitness sessions with all of our children, staff and some of our parents. Three recipes were created on the day, two of which were cooked by our Green Kitchen Team, led by Mr Norman and Orange Kitchen team led by Mr Fulstow. Both dishes were cooked in 15 minutes and as well as providing a nutritious and healthy meal option, they were delicious too.

If you and your children decide to try cooking one of the dishes we would love you to tweet your images to: @whaplodeprimary

P.E. Lessons

In year 3 we like to get active and get fit! To help stay healthy children do regular physical activity each week including swimming lessons and P.E. lessons.

The Great Outdoors

In art we are looking at the works of Henry Rousseau. He claimed 'to have no teacher other than nature’: so we took the opportunity to include the great outdoors in our learning environment.

Here we have been collecting sticks in readiness to create our masterpieces.

Holiday Homework

Many thanks for the holiday project homework that you have sent in. They are absolutely amazing; very imaginative and colourful.

We have made a fantastic display in the classroom and also in the hall for everyone to see.
