Seagulls in the Nature Area
Seagulls enjoyed their morning in the nature area. We tried colour matching with natural materials with much success. After this, we moved onto being archaeologists- discovering hidden dinosaurs in the nature area and also making dinosaur food with a variety of herbs and plants. Seagulls enjoyed playing games later in the morning.

3C Sports Day
3GC Beach Trip & Watercolour City Skylines
3C Sea Life Adventure Aquarium
3c have been learning about light, finding reflective materials in the classroom, and how a light beam travels in straight lines. The children investigated how could they make the light beam bend around corners.
3C showing their skills
3c have been practising their gymnastic skills on the apparatus. They have become very imaginative in their use of the ropes whilst having developed their balance, agility and core strength. Apparatus for PE is definitely one of their favourite times of the week!
3C Recreating Famous Landmarks
3C have been looking at famous landmarks around the world, they tried to recreate some of their favourites using spaghetti and marshmallows. It was tricky to build tall towers stable and strong. However most groups achieved their aim by being creative!
3C Building Bridges
3 C have been looking at different types of bridges.
Using paper folded and rolled in different ways we have been learning how to strengthen our structures and designs.
The children spent Friday morning constructing their bridges using newspaper and then had to assess their bridges for stability and strength testing how many cubes they could carry. The children named their bridges and presented their information about their designs to their classmates who all had one vote each to determine the best bridge in class.
The winner was ‘Cat Bridge’ designed by Eirinn and Yasemine.
Outdoor Learning for 3C
3C enjoyed their time in the Nature Area today. We played games called Eagle Eye and Cut the Rope. After this, we enjoyed bananas filled with chocolate cooked on our fire pit.
We also had fun climbing trees, swinging, experimenting and building!
In the afternoon, Year 3 developed their building skills. Their challenge was to build bridges for insects or themselves. You can see how successful they were from their pictures.
Stone Age Day
Year 3 enjoyed a fabulous day learning about the Stone Age from the Hadleigh Histories team.

Outdoor Learning for 3GC
3GC had an amazing morning in the nature area today. They designed cheerio necklaces for the birds, completed plenty of bug hunts, tried out some new catapults with mixed success and buried dinosaurs only to rediscover them again! The children were able to state what they had learnt, some of them even aged the trees in our area!
Great Greek Day
The children in 3C were challenged to complete a quiz about Ancient Greek gods. The fact cards were displayed around the classroom for them to find the answers. How many questions could you answer?
Reuse Recycle Plastic Bags
After learning about plastic and discussing positives and negatives for the use of plastic, we created our own kites to reuse a carrier bag. Look how much fun we had! So easy to make - no more carrier bags in the bin for 3C!
What makes other colours?
After our black investigation we decided to test other colours to see what would happen and to see if they had a mix of colours to make them whole. We created some beautifully coloured creative circles whilst investigating.
What is black?
The children conducted an experiment to discover what colours make black. Look at our discoveries.
