Welcome to Year 3
This page will contain information on all the exciting things we get up to in Year 3.
In history we have learnt about how Stone Age people were ‘hunter gatherers’ and would have to track down their own food.
To supplement our learning we role-played being hunter gatherers and had to ‘hunt’ down Stone Age animals with our ‘spears’ and also have a go at foraging for fruits, seeds, mushrooms etc.
We discussed how we found the experience. The children particularly enjoyed hunting but we agreed this wouldn’t have been as easy if the animals were actually moving and 10x bigger than us. We discussed how easy it was for us to find different plants to eat because we had a sheet with facts containing edible and poisonous plants but we may have struggled without this in the Stone Age. We were very wary about the choices of plants available on the school grounds and were not sure we could survive if we got stranded at school!
Overall, Year 3 have had a fantastic half term crammed full of learning and cannot wait to start learning about the Romans.
