Value in Everyone

Year 3

In September we spent time settling into Key Stage 2 and got used to all of our new routines. In the first week we paid a visit to the Salvation Army in Jarrow where we learnt all about who they help, and the services they provide to people in need.  We took part in some colouring activities, and got to dress up in their uniform.

In October, we were learning all about the Stone Age and how they lived. We Visited West Boldon Lodge where we went back in time and got stuck in making real life Stone Age shelters out of sticks and things we could find in the forest. We also made bread round a camp fire and made spears from stones and sticks. Back in the classroom, we used our ICT skills to research Stone Age food, then followed a simple recipe to make bread and stewed fruit, it was delicious!

In November we started learning about Ancient Egypt. We joined Howard Carter on his mission to locate the last tomb to be found in The Valley of the Kings- Tutankhamun's tomb! We learnt all about features of a newspaper article, and wrote our own telling the shocking story of Howard Carter's find.

In December we had a great time at the Great North Museum as part of our Ancient Egyptian topic and Science topic- rocks and soils. We first explored the museum and came across lots of interesting artefacts- even a real life mummy! We spotted canopic jars which were used to store organs in to keep them safe in the after life.  We then took part in lots of fun activities like pyramid building, dressing up, map work and we were able to translate some writing from 'The Book of the Dead' using our knowledge of hieroglyphics. We then explored downstairs in the museum which was all about fossils of animals and plants.  We spoke about the types we had learnt about in class, and spotted real examples of each.
