What a fantatastic we have had, learning all about the country of Greece and tasting food from the country. We have tried olives, pitta bread, tzatziki, apricots, greek yoghiurt, honey, salad and feta cheese - wow!!
We began our summer term topic, 'All Around the World' yesterday by locating the countries in Central Asia and learning about the nomadic tribes and their love of storytelling in yurts.The children then went on to make flatbreads and taste other foods from the area including: humous, rice, raisins, dates, cous cous and mint tea. They were wonderful and loved trying the different tastes!

What an exciting day we all had when the Partake Theatre Group visited school for our Viking day! We began by looking at Viking amour and weapons, before becoming Viking workers grinding grain to make flour, making Viking coil pots, spinning and weaving sheep's wool and making silver Viking jewellery to trade with. We then planned our very own Viking settlement and designed shields. Finally, the most exciting part... we became real Vikings and took part in a raid on a monastery - wow!!

The children had a fantastic time going back to the Victorian era when they visited the Black Country Museum before half-term. They experienced some very differnet lessons in a Victorian classroom and spent time exploring the Victorian shops. Best of all, they were all very brave when going into a dark Victorian mine! The children were wonderfully behaved and a pleasure be with. Thank you to them all and of course to the parent helpers who accompianied us on the visit.

Welcome back and we hope you had a great summer!
The Year 3 children have settled in fantastically well and have adapted to life in Key Stage 2 superbly - well done to you all. We began the year by getting to know each other and reminding ourselves how important it is to make sure we all have a Growth Mindset in school, to try our best and never give up.

We have had a great time in our Transition days, dressing up as Victorian children and finding out what kind of activities they did in school. We have played Victorian playground games, practised Copperplate handwriting and made Peg dolls. Thanks to all the parents who visited our new class on Wednesday afternoon, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
