For the past three weeks, Team 3 have been learning about plants. We have been doing an experiment for all that time with different plants.   The class has been split into four groups, each one observing the growth of a different flowering plant: sunflower, nigella, calendula and pansy. In each group, we have put… Read More

In Geography this term, Team 3 have been learning about South America, and particularly the largest country in that continent: Brazil. Last week, we were lucky enough to have someone from Brazil answering some of the questions we had sent her about that beautiful country.     Cassia sent us a lovely video, talking about… Read More

Last week was children’s mental health week, so on Wednesday we watched a video by Princess Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, about our “big feelings” and how it is important to have strategies when we have them. On Friday, during our art lesson, Team 3 made posters about those strategies. We wrote down some of… Read More

After two enjoyable weeks of stretching learning, thorough note-taking and interesting investigation, Team 3 have finally come to the end of our rocks learning journey. At the beginning, most of us did not know how rocks are formed and many didn’t even know what rocks were. Now, however, Team 3 are fledgling geologists, who know… Read More

Each rock is unique. Some rocks are permeable, which means that water and gas can pass through them. Other rocks are impermeable. Some… Read More

Today, Team 3 worked together to create a fantastic shared write for our learning journey based on ‘The Little Match Girl’. Tomorrow, they will each start writing their own version of this fantasy narrative. We can’t wait to see what they write!      … Read More

Just before we went for our half term break, Team 3 spent much of the week writing reports on Stonehenge. We learnt a lot about Stonehenge last half term. Initially, we studied a text in Reading about its construction phases. Later in the half term we found out more during our Wider Curriculum lessons on… Read More

In Team 3, we have been learning about the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron age this year in Wider Curriculum. Recently we have been learning particularly about Stonehenge, a prehistoric monument on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire. Nobody knows exactly how or why it was constructed, but it was probably used for worship.… Read More

Many now have certificates to celebrate how much progress they’ve made! They have been showing so much focus on their learning, and we are really proud of how well… Read More
