Today we were imagining that we had been transported back 10,000 years to the Stone Age. What would we need to do to survive? What would we do first? We all had different ideas but we had to try to agree the order to do things.
Here we are trying to decide what is the most important thing to do first.
We drew pictures and began to write the story of Mary Anning today.
Watch this video. Find out more about fossils and dinosaurs and the surprising little girl that discovered them!
We were finding out all about how rocks are all different. They are different colours, shapes, sizes and lots more things. Some of our rocks floated, some of them sank, some of them were durable and some weren't. It was great fun!
We have been reading calligrams today. They are words or poems which are written in the shape of what they are describing. We chose our favourite to put into our books.
It is anti-bullying week this week. Today, we made our soundscape. Can you hear the 'bully' words? Can you hear the kind words?
We are learning to use dictionaries in 3w. Today we have been looking at the order the words are in. This is called alphabetical order. We sang the alphabet song. It reminded us of being in reception!!!
Here we are putting volcano vocabulary into alphabetical order. We are working in teams and helping each other.

We have been learning lots about volcanoes. Here we are putting information about volcanoes into groups.
Here we are singing our 'Staying alive' song all about the bones in our bodies.
Yesterday, 9 children from 3W headed off to visit our friends at Burtonwood School. It was such a lovely day. The sun was shining and everyone was very welcoming. Even a local cat came to see us!
When we arrived we went on a tour of the school. We were surprised at how small it was. There is only one class in each year! There are no stairs and they only have one hall. Their playground is different from ours too. They have a huge space, but they don't have as much play equipment as we do. We were also impressed with their swimming pool, even though it was empty.
