Year 3 enjoyed their visit to the Synagogue in Bradford yesterday.

Yesterday, Year 3 had a fantastic day making Pizzas. This was part of our Europe Topic. Can you guess which country we have learnt about?

 We made our own pizza dough and then prepared the different toppings.  We learnt about food hygiene and how to grate / cut things up safely. 

Jordan from Soccer Hub came into Year Three on Tuesday to talk to us about reaching our goals and dreams. He told us about having a positive attitude toward life and what we need to do to reach our goals. He explained that we can start doing things now to make our dream come true.
We made these posters answering the following questions:
I am I good at.......
I enjoy doing..........
I love.......
My favourite food....
My hero is.............. because
My dream / goal..............................
When I grow up I want to be……………………….
What do I need to do to achieve my goal?
What can I start to do to achieve my goal?
How I will feel if I achieve my goal?

Thanks Jordan, the children loved you coming into class and speaking to them.

Last Friday, as part of our Modern Day Europe topic we made French Butter Cookies (Sable Breton). They were delicious.

The Wonders of Winter

As part of the whole school art project we created art to show our awareness of 3D and perspective. We have developed our skills using a variety of media and intricate patterns.

We enjoyed the Art Day and are proud of the work we have created.

As part of our topic, we have made Saxon bread in class for us all to share. It was very tasty!

Pedestrian Safety

Well done to Year 3 who were fantastic during the Pedestrian Training today. Great listening, following instructions, and lovely manners - a real credit to Lees! 

As promised, Year 3 have now finished their Dragon Heads and they are looking great. Well done Year 3!

Yesterday afternoon Year Three, braved the cold and wet weather to do an archaeological dig in the school field.  Dr Douglas Bones from the archaeological society had personally written to us, saying that there might be some Viking relics buried in our school field. He sent us a map where he thought the relics might be.

 Mr Townsend and Miss Revell were a bit sceptical (Vikings living in Lees?) but to everyone’s surprise we weren’t disappointed! We unearthed lots of treasure, including: coins, jewellery, pots, jugs, horns and some carved figures.

 Today we have been recording our finds and doing some research on them. We are going to write a report for Dr Bones. Here’s what the children have discovered.

 “We have found out that the carved figures were used in Viking board games.” Jack

 “On one piece of jewellery has seashells in it. We know the Vikings traded in seashells.” Addison

 “The coins were like the ones Wayland our Viking visitor told us about. They had a cross in the middle so that they could chop them in half or quarters.” Evelyn

 Well done Year Three.  Mr Townsend and Miss Revell are very proud of you.

As part of their topic, Year 3 have created some fantastic Viking Dragon Heads from clay. We will keep you updated once they have been painted. Well done Year 3!
