Redwood - Year 3

Teacher: Ms Burton

Today (01.02.19), we were learning about Stonehenge.

We created our own Stonehenge models using... biscuits!!!

Out Stonehenge models included the Outer Circle (Bourbon biscuits), Bluestones (Shortbread biscuits) and the Horseshoe (Custard Creams).

It was very tricky and it required a lot of teamwork and concentration but we all managed to do it!

It was really fun and we got eat a biscuit after - yummy cheeky

On Tuesday 22nd January, we enjoyed imagining that we were Glog - a child who lost their tribe in the Stone Age. We looked at different Stone Age items and worked as a group to decide how we thought it could help us survive!

We will be focusing on light and dark in Science (the Sun).

In Literacy, we will be looking at the moon (and the man in the moon).

It should be an exciting term! frown

Today (10.10.18) we had a fantastic day in London!

We enjoyed the following: taking a train to London, going on a boat (many for the first time sad), seeing different landmarks on our boat ride, going to The London Eye 4D Experience (some of us got really wet), eating our lunch in the park, playing in the playground, watching a street performer do magic along Southbank and then (of course), taking a train back to Lower Sydenham and walking back to school.


Throughout the day, we completed a London Scavenger Hunt looking out for various sights and being our trip photographers. We all took lots of photos in our groups to help us capture the memories.


We had a very busy day and many of us were tired when we got back to school, so we enjoyed sitting down and listening to Miss Burton read 'Winnie-the-Pooh Goes to London'.

Thank-you to all the parents that came to help us today - it was awesome!


Our Walk in Bellingham...

This Thursday (13.09.18), we went on a trip exploring our local area, Bellingham.

We visited the Riverview Walk, Bellingham Green, Bellingham Train Station and Bellingham Leisure Centre. At each stop the children completed different activities, including sketching! We had an awesome morning!

In Literacy we have been looking at the book 'A Walk in London' by Salvatore Rubbino, and we are looking forward to write about our trip and produce our own book called, 'A Walk in Bellingham'.
