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:
Fridays at Countess Way are now when Year 3 come together again as a year group and work with Mr. Gray. Today we have been learning about performance poetry using speaking and listening skills. We then went on to answer today’s Big Question: What is an ecosystem?
Here are a few performance videos!
What is an ecosystem? (With a special guest appearance from a caterpillar!)
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.
Well done to the girls who received their Balance pins today! We are so proud of you and the balance that you show. Keep being role models!
Here is some useful information on how we create sentences in Year 2. You could use these when you are doing your homework because they may help to improve the quality of your sentences.
Well done to the two boys in 3D who achieved their Open, Grow, Believe pins.
We’re so proud of you, especially as you’ve only been in our school for a few weeks.
This week we’ve seen some fantastic homework presentations on natural disasters.
Here’s one we captured on video!
Today we had a great time investigating all the different rocks and soils. The children decided on their own ways to sort and group them. Furthering that, they tested out permeability and hardness!
