Year 3 - Otters

Welcome to Otter Class 

 

Our first topic this year is the Anglo-Saxon's and Vikings. We had an incredible experience day at the Ancient Technology Centre and took part in interactive activities to see what life was like at this time in history. During the day we made bread and butter and cooked it on an open fire that we started ourselves. We also collected dye plants and learnt how to dye natural fabrics. We honed our skills at archery in a grand contest and spun sheep's wool into thread. We then learnt how to weave the thread to make Viking belts. It was a wonderful day and we learnt a great deal. Thank you to all our adult helpers and the staff at the A.T.C.

Groovy Greeks

 

This term our topic has been The Groovy Greeks. As part of our learning we found out about Ancient Greek Theatre and designed and made our own Hero and Monster masks based on the characters from famous Greek myths.

Can you spot Medusa, the snake headed Gorgon, the hero Perseus, the Sea Nymphs, The Minotaur, The Cyclops and the Grey Ones?

A delicious cake mountain

Here is a picture of a cake mountain made by a child from Badger class. He told us, "well, we put sponge cake together but then it started to fall so I put cocktail sticks in to hold it together. Then I decorated the cake with icing boulders, sheep and trees. I even put a man in a boat fishing in the lake below."
