Year 3 Visit to Verulamium Museum

On Tuesday, a very enthusiastic Year 3 visited the Verulamium Museum in St Albans. We wandered through the different galleries, looking at the collection of Roman objects while answering questions in our activity booklets. Next, we had the opportunity to handle and examine real Roman artefacts, such as roof tiles, cooking utensils and jewellery, etc. Then, we managed to avoid the rain and trekked up to see the remains of the Roman town walls, which were made of flint and red brick tiles. Finally, we examined the hypocaust (underfloor heating system) that warmed the rooms of the villas. It was a very informative and fun day out!

 TT Rockstars

We have set up a new scheme on TT Rockstars where the children will follow a set programme and automatically progress through levels. Whilst it may initially seem as though the children have gone back to the beginning those children who know their times tables will quickly progress through the stages until they are at the correct level.

We do expect children to read regularly at home for 10 mins a day as this has a big impact on their learning.  Other  homework set is there to support and consolidate work in school.  We do not expect work at home to take longer than the maximum time given.  We understand that on occasion e.g. the family going away for the weekend that homework may not be completed on time.

Year 3 Visit to Celtic Harmony Camp - Monday 8th October 2018

Year 3 had a wonderful time at Celtic Harmony on Monday.  We went back in time to the Iron Age and met the chief and her tribe.  They taught us how to be farmers.  We learnt how to grind grain to make bread and crush herbs for soup.  Working on looms we wove sheep's wool into cloth, which was fun.  Also, we traded goods and twisted wool together to make bracelets, which we dipped into herb coloured dye.
We had a brilliant day and learnt a lot.
