Religious Education in Year 3
The Holi festival is the inspiration behind our stunning artwork. We used pipettes to make the clouds of colour and silhouettes of our hands to represent the people celebrating.
Diwali is the festival of light. It is to celebrate Rama defeating Ravanna, the demon with ten heads. The battle of good over evil. They light divas and have a bonfire every year and burn an effigy of Ravanna. Megan – Rabbits
Hindus believe in one God, Brahman, but he can be in many different forms. Each form has a different name but they are all God. Shiva is the destroyer of worlds, Brahma is the creator and Vishnu is the protector. Manak – Hedgehogs
The festival of Holi is also called the festival of colour. The whole community throw coloured powder and water at each other and it is a time for celebration and joy. Ishaa – Water Voles
Romans Invade Redwood Campus
On Tuesday 24th March Year 3 took part in a Roman day led by a Roman re-enactment group. In the morning we learnt about how Roman slaves were treated and what Roman centurions were expected to do and all about their armour and weapons. In the afternoon we ate our home-made honey cakes following a traditional Roman recipe. To finish the day we marched in the hall with our shields following commands in Latin!
Year 3, who have been working extremely hard, have made some amazing Roman artefacts to create a Roman museum. These include shields, mosaics, models of Roman buildings, Roman recipes, drawings of Roman soldiers, pottery and armour.
Year 3 Visit to Butser Ancient Farm
On Wednesday the 25th February Year 3 went to Butser Ancient Farm in Petersfield because we were learning about the Celts and were going to be learning about the Romans. During the day the children were able to participate in different activities which included having a talk in the roundhouse about the Celtic way of life, wattling, archaeological digging, jewellery making and visiting a Roman villa. The children all had a fantastic day!
Since our visit to Marwell Zoo in September the children have been busy writing recounts of their visit and drawing pictures of the animals they saw. See some of their work below.
Our topic this term is called Extreme Habitats. Do you think these animal names are real or have we made them up?
On their transition day Year 3 filled a bag with pictures and information all about themselves to help to get to know each other. During the sumer holidays the children were asked to send postcards back to school to help us learn about the world.
