Osprey Class
Blog
Hello and welcome to Osprey!
We are the Year 3 class, who like to work hard and have fun!! This blog will tell you all about what we have been learning, the activities we have been taking part in and the exciting events we are looking forward to.
 
Spring Term:
Our topic this term is a local history topic, based around a historical and geographical look at Meldreth and the surrounding area.
We will look carefully at the changes to the landscape and lifestyle of Cambridgeshire since the 1800s.
 
Coming Soon...
In the following weeks we look forward to deciding on a whole key-stage trip.
After half-term, Year 3 and 4 will also begin to practice for their Spring Term Play.
While we work on our new topic all about Meldreth since the 1800s, have a look back over what we did last term or get to know our topic a little better by having a look at our new terms topic map, below.

Autumn Term
 
This term our topic was 'India'. The children really enjoyed "flying to India" with Kite Class (Year 4) and learning all about India, the animals that live there, and the people and their lives.
 
We took part in lots of activities, including:
  • Indian food tasting
  • Making Curry
  • Looking at maps of India
  • Comparing Schools here and in India
  • Learning about Schools in India from Miss Hill's Mummy
  • Playing Indian playground games
  • Performing Indian poems
  • Reading traditional Indian stories
  • Re-writing classic fairy-tales with an Indian twist and then making them into books
  • Went on a trip to the Mandir in London
Other activities we have taken part in this term:
  • Basketball with Ms Jackson
  • Football with Tom
  • KS2 Carol Concert
