Rocks and Fossils Workshop
Today, Sharon from Somerset Heritage and Learning came to share her knowledge on rocks and fossils. We started our session by watching a video about how fossils are made and then moved on to three different activities. The first activity was working with Sharon to identify different rocks and using magnifying glasses to see what small particles the rocks were made up of. The second activity was a game of rock bingo, and the third activity was rubbing fossils to make our very own prints. We then had to identify what type of fossil we had been given. There were lots of opportunities to walk around the room and read the information that Sharon had brought out as well. What an exciting morning we had learning more about rocks and fossils.
Cheddar Caves Trip
Take a look at all the photos from today's super visit to Cheddar caves and museum of prehistory. We had a great guided tour of Gough's Cave and an immersive experience in the Dream Hunter's Cave which was a bit scary with wolves and bears projected onto the walls around us. The museum of prehistory showed us all about life in Stone Age times and the Beyond The View film show gave us more details about the history of Cheddar Gorge.
Year 3 Forest School Day - November 2023

Year 3 Oracy Unit
As part of their English unit (instructions) our Year 3's have made a brilliant start to this academic year using their oracy skills to explain to our Year 1's how to make a mask. The Year 1 children used great listening skills and the Year 3's used clear, sequential instructions in order for the Year 1's to successfully make their masks. Well done Year 1 and Year 3.
Sports Week : June 2023
During this week, Year 3 have had the opportunity to participate in a huge range of events including go-karting, relays, football gold, archery and orienteering. We enjoyed going offsite to Bridgwater College and working in different teams across our year group!

Year 3 Puxton Park
We had a fantastic day in the sunshine learning about animals to support our work in Science. We had the opportunity to be 'bees' and find the flowers they use to collect nectar and make honey. Then we fed the meerkats with mealworms and found out more about how they live as a mob. Some of us were then very brave and got to touch a snake, tenrec, millipede and lizard while we found out more about their diets and skeletons.

Year 3 and Year 6 PE : 26th April 2023
On Wednesday 26th April, Year 3 and Year 6 enjoyed a PE session together. Year 6 planned seven different activities for the Year 3's to take part in and they enjoyed displaying some of their leadership skills and qualities.
It was a pleasure to witness such fantastic behaviour from both year groups: all children gave all activities their best effort and enjoyed the afternoon together.
Well done everyone!
Battle of Sedgemoor Wow Starter for Year 3 : February 2023
Year 3 had a visit from a ‘doctor’ who helped during the Battle of Sedgemoor that took place in Westonzoyland on 6th July during 1685. We learnt so much about how the rebels led by the Duke of Monmouth tried to overthrow King James II.
