Yesterday and today we have been learning all about Stonehenge. We thought about how the people of the Neolithic period could have transported the stones and then we watched a video all about it. We used Google Earth to look closely at Stonehenge. We have used atlases and online maps to locate where Stonehenge is located and the name of the nearest river. We also locate West Wales and the Preseli Hills where the Bluestones used at Stonehenge are said to have come from.
Have a lovely half term!
Year 3 How was Stonehenge constructed?
Romeo and Juliet Workshop with Jo and our Shakespeare ambassadors
Today we thoroughly enjoyed taking part in a Romeo and Juliet workshop. We learnt a little about the story -
SPOILER ALERT! It's a tragedy and doesn't have a happy ending for Romeo or Juliet!
We enjoyed acting out part of the script in different ways and using different techniques such as freeze framing. A huge thank you to Charlotte, Aston and Chloe our Shakespeare learning ambassadors who led the session so well and to the mummies, daddies and grandparents who came along and took part so well too.
Your child should have brought home a leaflet about the show at The Grand Theatre Blackpool but more information can also be found on The Grand's website.

Yoga with Little Yoggies
On Thursday we were lucky enough to have Chelsea from Little Yoggies come into school to teach us some Yoga. We learnt about the origins and Yoga and as well as some of the movements. We learnt about the importance of listening, being quiet and relaxing our bodies and minds. Thank you Chelsea, we had lots of fun! Look at how well we can stretch and balance!

WW1 Remembrance Silhouette Stained Glass Windows
As part of our work on Remembrance and WW1 the children have printed images onto OHP films and used tissue paper and PVA glue to create a colourful stained glass window effect. We are really pleased with how they are looking so far. We are letting them dry over the weekend and will post photographs of the finished pictures next week.

Year three visited the Harris Museum in Preston this week. The children behaved beautifully and were a credit to our school. We enjoyed finding out about bronze sculptures and then making our own sculptures from clay. We also spent some time in the discovery room completing a 'time explorers challenge trail'. We loved visiting the museum shop to spend our money and all children showed excellent Maths skills! We had such a lovely day and hope you enjoy looking at our photographs.

We had a fantastic week in Year 3 during MADD (music, art, drama and dance) week. All our activities were linked to the musical 'Chitty, Chitty BANG BANG'. We acted out the story with Mrs Cleasby, sang the songs, performed dances from the show and created t-shirts with sweets designs. We were also visited by the Lytham Arts Society who helped us design and create fabric bunting. What a great week!
MAD week in Year 3
Today, Year 3 were visited by Alan and Stuart from Urban Organics who helped us to design and create a living willow-cross! It was so much fun and we are very proud of it. We are going to take very good care of it as it is very special to us and we love that we can see it every time we look out of our classroom windows. Thank you so much Alan and Stuart and to the parents who joined in and helped us!
Year 3 had a fantastic morning enjoying the 'Thy Kingdom Come' prayer activities. We prayed for our families, our school and the whole world!

In Year 3 we found out lots of interesting information about the Jewish celebration of ‘Purim’. We read all about the ‘Story of Esther’ and created a storyboard. We also made our own Hamantaschen biscuits. We found out about all the different traditions involved with Purim and at the end of the week, we presented our work to Year 5.
