This week we went on a local walk of Seacroft with Matthew Bellwood. We looked at lots of different buildings and learnt about what these were like in the past. We heard some lovely stories from people who have lived in Seacroft for a long time. We looked at a map of Seacroft from the 1930s and tried to imagine what Seacroft would have been like in the past.
This week class 8 began our new topic all about our community. We looked at different kinds of maps to locate different countries and we researched facts about the United Kingdom.
We also really enjoyed gymnastics in PE this week. We practised rolls and learnt some new partner and group balances.

This week Class 8 have enjoyed lots of time learning outside. We had our trip to Meanwood Valley Farm where we learnt all about rocks and soil for our Science topic. We even got to see and feed some of the animals before we left. We also enjoyed World Day this week. We had different lessons outside and enjoyed using nature to create different pieces of artwork. We thought carefully about why trees are important and wrote special messages about taking care of trees.
This week Class 8 had our first drumming session. They practised creating rhythms that they learnt in Year 2 and played some musical games. Class 8 also really enjoyed dressing up and wearing odd socks for Children in Need on Friday.
This week class 8 have enjoyed preparing for our Black History assembly. We have enjoyed drawing portraits and researching some interesting facts to share with our grown-ups.
Class 8 really enjoyed our second day with Catherine this week. We learnt all about the Romans and got to see lots of interesting reconstructed artefacts. We played some different games that were popular in Roman times and even got to write a Roman message using ink and a stylus.
Class 8 enjoyed their workshop with Shine this week. We thought all about what life was like in the Stone Age. We learnt the start of a Stone Age rap and acted out different Stone Age activities. We are really looking forward to our session next week.
Class 8 really enjoyed their French day 🇫🇷 this week. They took part in lots of exciting activities including a French hunt around school, French playground games and artwork based on a French artist.
Class 8 had a very exciting week with a visit from Catherine to learn all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We had the chance to look at different reconstructed sources to help us learn about daily life. We also designed our own roundhouse camps and learnt about armour and weapons used in the Iron Age.
This week in Year 3 we have talked a lot about the history that the children learned in KS1 ready for all the new history we will be learning in our Invaders and Settlers TSU this term. When we introduced this new topic, we thought about what we would like to learn more about and developed a list of questions to research this term. Here is our Home Learning Grid to give you some ideas about what we will learn this half term. We are really looking forward to sharing what you learn at home as well as at school.
