As a hook for their new topic this term, Year 3 visited Exeter where they ventured into the underground passages, saw Roman remains and toured the cathedral. Beginning the day at the passages, the children put on their hard hats before walking deep beneath the streets of Exeter, learning about the various uses throughout their history. They then walked to the old Roman city walls and on to Exeter Cathedral where they had a well-deserved lunch. Recharged, they set off in groups around the cathedral with a quiz and things to discover before returning to school for the end of the day. Year 3 have already put some of their new learning and discoveries to good use back in class in their English, History and RE sessions. A great day out!
Year 3’s Multicultural Day
On Tuesday 27th March, Year 3 enjoyed a range of activities based on some of our multicultural learning from the spring term. Throughout the day the children took part in food tasting linked to our multicultural stories in English, the art of rangoli patterns outside with coloured chalks, some French music using the cellos and a Cornish song and dance. They also created some paper multicultural dolls independently and learned a song singing hello in a variety of languages. A big thank you to Mrs Gilbert who came to join us in the morning for our music, not to mention all the people who came to our drop in at the end of the day to see what the children had created.
