Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

 

Week beginning: Monday 14th October

 Over the past week we have been writing a fact file on Warwick Castle and exploring Motte and Bailey Castles. 

 We have had a very creative week making Motte and Bailey castle models! The children have also been identifying the different features of a Motte and Bailey as well as comparing this to modern stone castles. 

 

 

REMINDER

Please ensure that your child has a fruit/vegetable snack to eat after break time. After Year 2 pupils no longer get given fruit for their break time snack.

Please also ensure that your child has a bottle of water with them as well to keep hydrated throughout the school day.
