Welcome to Team 3!

To end our fabulous topic week on the Stone Age, we went to Beaumanor Hall to discover what life was like for people living in the Iron Age. We experienced what it was like to live in a roundhouse and had the opportunity to play musical instruments, make flour, weave and make jewellery. We also learnt about being a warrior. Passing a beacon, throwing spears and playing football with a Roman's head were all part of a warrior's day.
Week ending 13th October.
It has been a fabulous week in Team 3 as we have enjoyed our first Topic Week. The focus was on developing our historical skills whilst investigating life in the Stone Age. We have created a timeline using toilet roll paper, worked as a team to produce cave paintings, built Stonehenge from construction equipment and biscuits as well as thinking about the reliability of different historical sources, researching Skara Brae and discovering how homes changed from the Paleolithic to the Neolithic eras. A very busy week which will continue next week as we visit Beaumanor Hall for an Iron Age Day.
Week ending 6th October 2017.
It has been another busy week in Team 3. We have been learning about dialogue in our Literacy lessons. To prepare for writing, we imagined having a telephone conversation between the owner of a dragon hatchery and a customer asking for advice on how to look after their new pet. The other photographs show our funtrition lesson. We had lots of fun making fruit pizzas.
Week ending 29th September 2017.
Welcome to the first Team 3 weekly news!
This has been a very special week for Team 3 as we have been working on a secret mission. Having seen peculiar objects flying in the sky at night, strange noises coming from the nature area and then the discovery of a burnt yellow vest top; Mr Satchwell knew there was only one team he could ask to investigate. First thing on Wednesday morning Team 3 tiptoed across to the nature area, armed with I-pads and clipboards to record any clues. All of the evidence pointed to a dragon! Although we were a little frightened, we are now learning to write a set of instructions on how to catch a dragon and how to tame it so it can become a pet. Mr Satchwell will soon be able to sleep easy again.
We also continued with our Fun-trition lessons. This week we have learnt about the importance of exercise. The children were surprised to discover that we should all aim for an hour of vigorous exercise each day. The children have been picking up lots of tips from these sessions. They have been thinking about how simple changes such as getting enough sleep, cutting down on the amount of sugar they eat and drinking more water can have a positive impact upon their health.
Finally for this week, we have also been learning about prefixes in our daily spelling lessons. We have been concentrating upon the prefixes un- and dis-. We had a dictionary race with the winning pair discovering over thirty words with the prefix dis- in less than five minutes.
