Looking cool in our new edition sunglasses!

We have been busy making posters for the WW1 exhibition at the Village Hall this weekend. After completing our display work, we walked around the village visiting places where the WW1 Memorial Men had lived, worked and worshipped. Later we led an assembly to report back about some of the things that we have learned. 

Year 3 have fun with an introduction to Judo - delivered by a local expert.

Huddersfield Giants Community Trust delivered expert rugby tuition today. We are looking forward to the next session! Thank you to our Rugby teacher. The children thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. 

In RE we have been looking at images of the Trinity. The children wrote their observations and questions around the pictures.

Our final topic of the year allows us to find out more about our community. If you have any information about past events in Brockholes then please pass this on to any year 3 class member or teacher. Yasmin Cross is continuing her project into life in Brockholes - including research about the school - and we are hoping to benefit from her findings.

The first completed chariot!

Just a snapshot of the experiences we had on our trip to Tolson Museum to find out more about the Romans. An enjoyable and informative day was had by all. Many thanks to the helpers who volunteered their time and made this trip possible. 

Magnetism investigation outdoors - Are all metals magnetic? Year 3 searches for the answer to this question.

Salve! Our Roman topic has started.

A few scenes from the last rehearsal for our class assembly are below.


Archaeologists at work!

Sketching fragments of pottery whilst trying to decide what the original item might have been.

Active learning in literacy - putting verbs in a sequence to recap story events and choosing adverbs to accompany verbs found around the classroom. We also made an alley for our story character to travel along and gain advice for a decision that had to be made.

Let us entertain you! Ready for the dress rehearsal of 'The Lion King'.

What is soil made of? Year 3 investigates...

Brockholes will remember them: Year 3 helped to lead our commemoration as a school. Names of the men on the War Memorial were read out and poppies were brought forward to make a wreath. The names of the men from WW1 were recorded onto doves and a prayer was said.

The following day, Year 3 held a simple ceremony by the War Memorial and laid the wreaths from the school.

A great day was had by all at Magna. We started off with an excellent workshop, creating volcanoes and taking core samples. Rocks were analysed and identified. The class thoroughly enjoyed the adventure playground. After a visit to the shop, we had lunch. The afternoon began with watching 'The Big Melt', which explained the previous purpose of the building. This was followed by investigating each area - Air, Fire, Earth and Water - which we visited last - for obvious reasons! An action-packed and enjoyable time.

Our first experiment - comparing pips in small apples to those in large apples. Ask the children about our surprising results!
