This week, Year 3 were incredibly lucky to have an engineering workshop for a whole morning! They had to come up with a clever contraption to solve a problem. The problem was Rapunzel was stuck in her tower and needed help to get out! The children came up with lots of different ideas to help her, including a hot air balloon, a slide and a ladder. They only had limited resources to do this, but they did a wonderful job of saving Rapunzel!
The children were also tasked to build a tower that stood by itself (and wasn't taped to the table!) using only 4 sheets of A4 paper and 1m of masking tape. I was very impressed by how well they did with this challenge! They had great fun and we are very pleased to have been able to participate.
Please enjoy the lovely photos of our morning!
Although we were saddened to be unable to invite parents and families to Sports Day this year, we are pleased to be able to share photos of our day with you. In the morning, supported by Yeovil Town, we had Athletics which included long jump, discus and shot put. In the afternoon the children competed in class races. They did an amazing job, and were all pleased to take part. Please enjoy the photos of our day below.
We had a fantastic Viking Day today in Year 3! We made our own Viking shields and tried our hand at archery. The archery was not as easy as it looked but we had great fun having a go at it! We also read the story 'Mighty Thor and His Stolen Hammer', as well as wrote our names in using the Viking alphabet.
PSHE and Art
Today we talked about what we like about ourselves and our talents. We then drew ourselves in detail and wrote the qualities and attributes we liked about ourselves.
Mental Health Awareness Week
To raise awareness for Mental Health, Whitebeam class spent some time being mindful. We found different items in nature, including flowers and pinecones, to make a composition to draw.
Types of Rocks
Today we learnt about types of rocks including, igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. We then explored different rocks and tried to categorise them.
Easter Egg Hunt
In the final week of the spring term, we did lots of lovely activities, including an Easter egg hunt! We worked in small groups to find the chicks hidden in the field.
Spring Nature Mandalas
Yesterday we went outside to enjoy the glorious weather and made spring themed nature mandalas. We worked in small groups, collecting a variety of nature objects which we formed into patterns.

Well done Whitebeam, you have finished your first term of year 3! You have all worked really hard and what better way to end a super term than with a week filled with Christmas activities? You all deserve a wonderful Christmas break especially after such a turbulent year and I'm very proud of how well you have settled back into school.
I look forward to seeing you all again in the spring term.
Father Christmas' Present Riddle
Today was an exciting day as we were delivered a special letter from Father Christmas! Inside were riddles hidden around the classroom which led us to a hidden bag filled with some lovely games, including 'Don't Say It!', a mindfulness scavenger hunt and the Lost Words card game and even a dormouse adoption pack.
Today we enjoyed writing christmas themed acrostic poems and letters to Father Christmas, as well as doing festive watercolouring! We looked at some of Sabina Fenn's work to inspire us.
