Year 3D create their own Rainforest

Year 3 had a wonderful time creating their very own living rainforest.

They welcomed the children from across the school to experience what it’s like to be immersed in the tropical rainforest. Children created enclosures, acted as tribes people and animals and were tour guides to help explain their learning.

Well done for your fantastic work!!

Year 3 had a fantastic time visiting the Living Rainforest in Newbury. We experience the heat and humidity of the rainforest and saw some great plants and animals.

Here are a few snaps from our day:

Year 3 Big Question Fridays!

Here are a few performance videos!

Year 3D Shadow puppet theatres!

As part of our learning about light in science, the children made shadow puppet theatres and wrote their own little story. They learnt that shadows can change size the closer or further from the light an object is.

Well done to Year 3D today for successfully communicating their learning about our natural disasters project. We were lucky enough to have Matt from Wilmot Dixon come in to review our learning and ask some good questions about our natural disaster proof houses.
