Year 3's 5K sponsored run/walk to raise money for the Amazon Rainforest
Today year 3 took part in a 5K sponsored run/walk to raise money for the Amazon Rainforest. We were super lucky with the weather, although it was a little hot! We soon realised that 5k is quite a big distance but we showed great determination to complete the challenge! Miss Ide and the whole year 3 team are incredibly proud of the children. To celebrate us completing our challenge (Miss Ide & Miss Ward were very exhausted!) we had ice lollies to cool us down. Well done to Year 3 on their fantastic achievement. Final total on what we have raised will be announced after half term!

LEGOLAND COMES TO GREAT BENTLEY
Tuesday 23rd March 2021
Today we brought LEGOLAND to Great Bentley. We started the day with creating stop start animation
using LEGO. Scan some of the QR codes below to watch some of our creations! Next, we worked in teams to
create the strongest LEGO bridge. The winning team 'Lego Stackers' bridge held a whopping 6000g! Our
runners up 'Lego Masters' bridge held a fantastic 5000g! In the afternoon, we got to create our own LEGO
creations to inform our instruction writing. Finally, we had popcorn and fruit shoots and watched the
LEGO movie. Although, we could not go to LEGOLAND we had a fantastic day!
Our Stone Age Stories...
Over the past few weeks we have been working hard on our story writing skills. We have thought about the descriptive language techniques we can use in our stories such as onomatopoeia, expanded noun phrases and similes. We have also worked hard on our handwriting. See our finished stories below.
