Class 3 Trip to Warwick Castle

Class 3 spent and amazing day at Warwick Castle this week to learn more about their curriculum topic Towers and Turrets. We are so proud of the children who overcame their fear of heights by climbing to the top of Guy's Tower. They learnt a great deal during their workshop about people who lived in the castle from Mark, their tour leader. The simplicity of the workbench that was used to create amazing armour astounded the members of Class 3.

Our Wow Day activities for the spring term included:

· Coming to school dressed as an inhabitant of a castle.

· Constructing a catapult out of elastic bands, lolly sticks and a milk bottle top. We then investigated which material was the best to launch and to hit a target.

· Designing and constructing Biscuit Bridges: the longest, the strongest and finally, the tastiest.

During RE Class 3 spent time thinking about thankfulness in relation to the Christmas story. The children wrote meaningful 'Thank You' prayers to Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the angels. The result was a beautiful prayer chain.
