As part of our Volcanoes and Earthquakes Geography topic the children spent the afternoon working in pairs to paint their paper mache volcanoes. They studied photographs of real life volcanoes and used their knowledge of the subject and their Art skills to paint their own volcanoes.
As part of our Geography topic ‘What makes the Earth angry?’ we invited our families in for an afternoon of D.T. We made volcanoes by attaching masking tape to half a bottle and base; making the volcano shape. We then used paper mache to cover the structure and build up the crater. Year 3 had a brilliant afternoon! We then finished off our afternoon by solving a range of Maths problem solving activities. We can’t wait to paint then explode our volcanoes.
This term we have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. The children have learned how to not only use a timeline but also how to organise events using a timeline. We have also, through our literacy, enjoyed writing from the perspective of the Egyptian Cinderella and have produced some fantastic diary writing.
One of the children’s favourite lessons was when we mummified Liam and then used this to write our own set of instructions on the mummification process. We have also made our own pyramids and have designed our very own death masks.

Hawthorns class starting the Multi Stage Fitness Test, also known as the Beep Test!
Everyone worked 100% and all reached above the expected level for their first try!
Well Done Hawthorns!
Our topic for the autumn term has been ‘Buildings. The children have enjoyed a range of activities including exploring different types of buildings and building materials, producing information texts about buildings through time, and creating their own model buildings. We have also written and performed our own song ‘The Friendship Journey’, which we have entered into a competition to win free music tuition for a year. In science we have learnt about animals living in specific habitats. We have had lots of fun this term in our learning.
