The Year 3 Team
Our teachers are Miss Paterson in Cedar and Miss Bernabo in Pine.
On Wednesday 13th December, two members of Nelson St Church in Rochdale came in to Year 3 to talk to us about the Nativity story. They challenged us to make a stable in Bethlehem for Mary and Joseph out of cocktail sticks and midget gems! We also made our own board games. We had a brilliant morning.
On Wednesday 18th October we had a visit from Dr Diane Davies, the UKs only Maya Archaeologist! She showed us lots of photographs and videos from her travels and work in Meso-America at the Maya sites she studied and worked in. She also gave us lots of information and brought in fascinating artefacts for us to investigate. We have loved our work on the Maya!
'On Wednesday 4th October we took part in a live lesson with thousands of other children from all over the country! The lesson was all about Harvest. We followed a chef cooking a delicious meal and found out where the ingredients (chicken, yoghurt, flour and coriander) came from! We even saw a calf being born live at the dairy farm!
