What a busy week we are having already! We have been investigating why Stonehenge was built. There are several theories as to why it was built, ask your child which theory they believe and why. We held a debate, the children were brilliant at voicing their opinions and also at listening to others. Well done Year 3.

Week beginning 24/9/18
Today we started to read our new book 'Stig of the Dump' by Clive King. We looked at the front cover and made some predictions about what we thought the book might be about. We then decided to go into our Forest school area to see if we could find any food or materials that a Stone Age person could use. When we got there, we found Mr Brown was there with a fire! He invited us to toast some marshmallows with him - what a treat! We were then very surprised to have a visit from Stig! He had been out hunting mammoths in the woods when he came across our campfire, he was very happy to see us and tried to talk to us in his language. He also tried a marshmallow and seemed to love them. We were having a super time, until the school buzzer sounded, we think this noise might have frightened Stig, as he ran off. We are hoping to see him again.
Week beginning 17/9/18

We have thoroughly enjoyed the start to our Stone age to Iron age topic. The children have already started to plan what they would like to find out about this topic and have asked some interesting questions.

How did they travel?
What did they eat?
By end of the topic we are hoping to be able to answer ALL our questions.
