Category Archives: Year 3
On Thursday 18th May 2017, our school took part in the national Outdoor Learning Day. Year 3 researched different types of birds and their diets. We then went outside and made a bird feeder using floral wire and string. We placed cheese, chopped apples and cheerios on the wire before bending it to form a circle. Finally, we tied string to it ready to hang in our gardens.
Did you know that the study of birds is called Ornithology?
For homework this week we will be becoming ornithologists… Our job is to observe our bird feeders and we look forward to sharing facts and information on the types of birds that have visited.
On Monday 22nd May, Key Stage 2 had some special furry, scaly and scary visitors. We had the opportunity to hold, stroke and pet African animals such as a Pygmy hedgehog, a hissing cockroach, a baby meerkat and a royal python. Some children were even brave enough to wear the python around their neck! Mitch shared lots of information about each of the animals including their diet, habitat and how he came about rescuing them. WE HAD SO MUCH FUN!
On Thursday year 3 had an ancient Greeks day. The children learnt all about the ancient society such as food, warfare and the Olympics.
