Cliffe Castle - 26th September 2017

We had a great time our class trip to Cliffe Castle in Keighley. Our knowledge of the Stone Age was expanded through hands on workshops and discussions! We even got chance to go on the play area afterwards (even Mr Rolfe, Mrs Heald and Mrs Barker had a go!)


Moon Man by Tomi Ungerer

This half term's English lessons have been focused on Moon Man by Tomi Ungerer. The book tells the story of a lonely character who travles to Earth to make friends. Unfortunately, he is treated as an invader and is imprisoned! We have been talking about differences and acceptance and Year 3 have grown quite fond of Moon Man!


The Roman Invasion of Britain

Our main Autumn Term history topic is the Roman Invasion of Britain. We have been looking at the Celts, why the Romans wanted to invade and will soon be learning about the rebellious Boudicca. We worked really hard to create some accurate Roman Legionnaire Shields. Then we became a Roman Legion!
