Rocks and Soils

Our first Science topic of Year 3 has been rocks and soils. This has been a really hands on topic with lots of investigations, observations and discussions. We looked at igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, how fossils are formed and the famous Palaeontologist, Mary Anning. Take a look at our chocolate rocks below!


Year 3 Olympics - 7th December 2017

We had the best morning at Todmorden Sports Centre taking part in the Year 3 Olympics. There were lots of different activities to keep us busy. To top off a great trip...WE WON! All of Shade are so proud of Year 3's efforts. Below are some group pictures we took when we were having a rest!


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 about the rebellious Boudicca. We worked really hard to create some accurate Roman Legionnaire Shields. Then we became a Roman Legion!
