In Class 3 we work hard and have lots of fun at the same time. Mrs Cowley and Mrs Rose are our teachers and our brilliant teaching assistant, Mrs Faulkner, is in our classroom most of the time to help with our learning.
Just before our Christmas Show
Class 3 enjoy learning about history and have visited The Collection in Lincoln twice in the past 2 years to experience life as a Viking and also as a Roman. We wonder which way of life you would prefer!
Recently, we enjoyed a visit from a Viking expert, who told the children all about the Viking way of life and showed them many artefacts. The teachers were proud of the questions the children asked and the knowledge they gained. Such knowledge came to good use in the end of term debate, which focused on the essential question of our Project Based Learning: How vicious were the Vikings? This debate was held at the Grantham Council Chambers in front of an audience of parents and grandparents. Groups of children spoke (using the microphones) and used slide presentations to illustrate their points.
You can see photos of our visitor, our debate, our Viking-inspired science, art, maths and role play below.
Special visitors always inspire us and we enjoyed having Valerie Taiwo from Culture Connect in our classroom for a day. She told us about African costume, dance, traditional stories and art. As you can see from the photos, we really enjoyed dressing up! In our African Adventure and Gift of the Sun topics we have explored the countries, colours and cuisines of Africa.
