WILD THING!

 

Year 3 have had a positively WILD time over the past few weeks! Not only did we have a FANTASTIC day at Wild Zoo in Bobbington, but we also had lots of birds of prey come to visit us in school, including a Harris Hawk which went for a fly around the school playground! Check out the gallery photos and spot the lemur which tried to escape in Mrs Selby's bag!

 

 

 

It's Spring Term 2 and we've lots of fun times ahead!

 

This term our topic is 'Mighty Metals'. We are hoping to visit a local playground to observe how metals are used to construct play equipment and witness forces in action!

We shall also be reading The Iron Man, watching the Iron Giant film and investigating the properties of different metals, including magnetism.

 

Why not pop into your local library or search online to see if you can find out more about metals?

 

 

 

 

We've already learnt so much this year.

Yr 3 Residential - Fairbourne

In the Summer term, year 3 children have the opportunity to spend 3 days in (hopefully) sunny Wales in and around the village of Fairbourne.

 

We stay at Panteinion Hall (see picture above), a family run guest house which supplies us with (arguably) the best food we could have on a residential.

Although there is a lot of walking involved , the views are worth it. We spend our time on 2 beautiful beaches, visit the picturesque Blue Lake (after hearing Mr McNaught's magical tale), travel on a train and fulfil our 'sweet tooth' fantasies at the Barmouth Rock Shop. In addition, there is lots of sport, outdoor play, indoor activities and chance of a satisyfing icecream.

 

Don't forget your sleeping bags!

 

Below (in our galleries) are a few photos from previous years, soon to be updated with this year's trip in June.
