Year 3 visit to the Ashmolean Museum

On Thursday the Year 3 children visited the Ashmolean Musuem in Oxford. The pupils were able to explore the museum and learn more about our history topic, Ancient Egypt. The Ashmolean’s collections from ancient Egypt and Sudan are among the most extensive in Britain, with approximately 50,000 objects representing every period of human occupation in the Nile Valley from prehistory to the 7th century AD.

The children enjoyed sharing facts about what they had already learnt about ancient Egypt, whilst also learning new pieces of information from the artefacts they held and studied.

Terracotta Army Trip

The Year 3 children enjoyed an impromptu trip to visit the late John Nike’s collection of Terracotta Warriors which have rarely been seen by anyone outside the family.

The children were excited to see the statues which they have been learning about in Geography.

A huge thank you to Mrs Nike for invited us and sharing her experiences with us all.

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Trip

Years 3 and 4 had a fantastic trip to London to see a concert put on by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. After enjoying a picnic lunch in Jubilee Park overlooking the Thames we headed in to Festival Hall for the eagerly anticipated musical feast. The concert was based on the music of the many varied countries visited by the world-famous orchestra. As well as hearing some well-known classical pieces being expertly played, we joined in with the concert by singing along to one song about being lost on the Paris Metro.

We are currently learning about Myths and Legends in English and the children have been planning their own story. Firstly, they created their own monster and hero, then they drew their story onto to a story board and today they became storytellers by telling their Myth to the class. The children are now ready and very excited to write their Myths later in the week. 

Have a watch of Leila and Beau using their story boards to tell their story to the rest of the class…
