Wednesday 7th November 2018- Trading!

In our writing this week, we have been trading in the same way as the Celts did! We traded our animals for other animals and learnt what it would have been like to trade within Celtic settlements. We then learnt about how the Romans traded by using coins...we decided this was a more efficient way of trading! See our amazing trading below...

Wednesday 31st October 2018 - Roman Settlement.

This week Wrens have been looking at Roman settlements. We have explored the different areas within the settlement and have designed and labelled our own. Look at our photos below...

Wrens become Robin Hood!

Wrens had the exciting opportunity of turning into Robin Hood last week! We learnt how to hold a bow, shoot and aim for the target! Look how on target we were with our shots.

 

Wrens learn about different types of skeletons!

This week, Wrens have learnt about 3 different types of skeletons-

-Endo-skeletons

-Exo-skeletons

-Hydrostatic-skeletons!

We went outside and found some hidden animals and placed these into the correct groups. Look at our amazing learning below...

White Rock Danceathon!

Wrens really enjoyed our whole school Danceathon last week. We danced to different songs and raised money for our new dance studio!

Adding 100 to a 3 digit number.

This week in Maths we have been using our place value counters, diennes and number lines to add 100 to a 3 digit number. See our amazing learning below...

Roman Skeletons!

This week we have been thinking about the importance of a skeleton and why we we need one. We were very excited by a news report that told us  that archaeologist near Newton Abbot have made a discovery of Roman bones! 

In order to help them put these bones in the right place, we have helped them by creating our own skeletons and labelling the different bones. We have also learnt a song to help us remember this! 

First Day Back at School- Roman Day!

We really enjoyed starting our first day of Year 3 as Romans. During the day, we made and baked traditional Roman honey and ricotta tartlets and enjoyed eating these during our Roman banquet. We also got to design and make our own shields and found out some interesting facts about the life of a Roman.
