Willow Class - Year 3
Welcome to Willow Class
Welcome back for the second part of the Spring Term. We have had lots of changes this term and lots more exciting activities to look forward to. I have enjoyed my first few weeks in my class and meeting parents before the holidays. We have also welcomed Bindi and Hayden to the class.
This term our topic is Tribal Tales and we will be looking at the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. Please take a look at our topic web for an idea of some of the fun activities we have been doing. Our Cheddar Caves trip, which was postponed because of the snow, has been rescheduled for the first week back after Easter, and you will be received this information shortly.
We have been learning about life in the Stone Age through our book Stone Age boy. Ask your child to tell you what happens. It’s quite scary!
We enjoyed learning how to light a fire using only flint and steel and then went back to the class and write instructions to help a cave man light a fire. We have also made incredible fishing baskets, and I was so impressed with the weaving expertise in Willow Class!
Alongside normal homework you will notice your child carefully looking after, watering and updating their sunflower diary each week. They will be bringing back their plants in the first week of Term 5 so it would be great if you could take a photograph of your child with their plant to stick into their homework book.
Willow Class loved learning about Stonehenge and learned how to blend paint colours to create a beautiful Stonehenge sunset.
Willow class were lucky enough to spend an afternoon with Tom Veck from Rocktopus www.rocktopusmusic.com
