Year 3 Summer 1 Curriculum Snapshot

"We had the opportunity to dress up on our Greek Day. We joined the Spartan army and learned different commands. On the playground we measured the length of different shadows created every hour and found out that there were different patterns. We listened to the Trojan story and made and designed our own Trojan horse using different materials. We wrote as Hercules to his father Zeus and explained what had happened when he fought the Lion of Nemea. We have really enjoyed reading the Hercules text and learning lots of new words."
