Welcome to Year 3! It promises to be an exciting time with all of the team new to Year 3 this term. Mr Hatcher is a newly qualified teacher and is really excited to be working with his first class. Mr Parker has been teaching for 21 years (18 of them at Dale Hall!) and is equally enthusiastic about moving to Year 3 after several years in Year 6.
Due to ongoing problems with the Dome, Futsal Club will no be resuming in the summer term.
Congratulations to our Futsal team of 7 boys and girls who finished runners-up in their group at the recent tournament - winning four and drawing one of their 6 matches.
Sadly our time in Beartooth Ridge National Park has come to an end.
But we have another exciting adventure coming up. This term we will begin by working in role as expert archaeologists who are called in by a local farmer to investigate a mysterious find...
Who knows where our investigations will lead us - but we'll certainly need to do lots of research into life in Roman Britain and the Roman Empire.
We will continue reading The Lost Happy Endings as our Power of Reading text. So far we've only read the first four pages but from that have produced detailed character analyses, beautiful artwork, diary entries and our own versions of what might happen next. We'll soon be finding out who Jub meets in the forest - it's probably not good news...
Our Science topics will involve finding out about light and then forces - in particular magnets and investigating how to do the perfect bottle flip!
In DT we will continue to work on our pneumatic models.
