Our topic this term:


Context-Cyd Destun

This term we shall be learning all about the world around us, in our exciting topic: GLOBE-TROTTING

Year 3 decided that they would like to design their own flying machine, and the pretend to travel around the 7 continents of the world. 


We designed our flying machines and then we were very ambitious learners making our design out of LEGO (build to express)


Here are some of our Build to express flying machines...


We decided to travel to Italy, in Europe. We were ethical learners by mapping out our journey around the world, thinking about our environment and air pollution. We decided it would be best to visit somewhere in Europe first. We spent time researching Italy, we were healthy learners creating a healthy packed lunch, using foods from Italy. We were creative learners designing and creating our Venice Carnival masks, we were ambitious learners using our math skills to compare populations in different Italian cities. 


We really enjoyed trying different Italian foods, predicting their smell, taste and texture first.



We decided to visit Africa next. We have been creative and ambitious learners doing African Drumming this term. We really do have so much fun every Thursday morning, playing the drums, singing and dancing.
