Year 3 took part in an investigation into why woolly mammoth bones are regularly found by fishing boats in the middle of the North Sea. We learned that, in the Stone Age, there was land connecting Britain to Europe called 'Doggerland'. We discussed the 3 main theories about why the land was wiped out. Discussing melting Ice, Isostatic Rebounding and a megatsunami.
Stone Age Day
Today, Year 3 had a Stone Age day to launch our new topic. We built shelters outside after learning about how communities were nomadic, living in temporary shelters. We took part in archery after learning about how Stone Age people hunted for their food. We also learned about how Beakers were introduced to Britain by the Beaker people and made Stone Age beakers.
Year 3 are lucky enough to have professional coaches from Newcastle Falcons come in and lead our P.E. sessions this half term. We had a great time learning to run with the ball and pass the ball this week!
P.E. - Circuits
Year 3 have been doing circuits in P.E. They have loved working hard and learning about the body, health and fitness.
