Sea, sunshine and a taste of Summer...

 

Are you ready for a sunny Summer term?

What will our new theme be?

 

Join us on a journey to distant isles and visit amazing creatures in magical undersea worlds. In geography, follow Danny the rain droplet on his travels around the water cycle and from the source of a river to the sea!

 

Let's...

Sail Away

The Romans Have Arrived

Term 2: Invaded by the Romans!

 

This term we have been very busy learning all about the Romans and the time they invaded Britain.

We have made Roman coins and pottery in art, worked on Roman poetry in literacy and looked at the myth of Romulus and Remus and the founding of Rome. 

We particularly enjoyed a visit from a Roman soldier who told us all about life in Roman Britain. The dice games were most entertaining but we found it quite difficult to write in ink!

 

Here is a taste of our Roman poetry:

Ciao Italia!

Benvenuti a tutti... welcome everyone!

Term 1: The children were eager to join the Junior School in September and have embraced life in 3P with enthusiasm and gusto! We have spent some time getting to know each other and have had a lot of laughs along the way.

Everyone was excited to learn about our "Stunning Start" and our new geography-based theme: Italy! We got into the spirit of things by making (and eating!) our own pizzas with various toppings (cheese, ham, pineapple, olives) and designing our own pizzas for our chefs' outfits. We finished off the day with a portion of "gelato"! 

Art

Over the last couple of weeks 3P have been working hard on their artistic skills. The children have produced reflective pictures of Venice using pastels, drawn the cartoon character Pinocchio and made masquerade masks. We love a bit of glitter and sparkle in 3P!
