October in Year 3!

What a busy few weeks we’ve had in Year 3! In science we’ve been learning about fossils. We made our own fossils out of ground coffee and practised being palaeontologists with chocolate chip cookies! We’ve also  been learning about the land use in Ombersley and how it has changed since the Second World War. We went on a walk to the village and used the iPads to take photographs of the human and physical geography of our local area. Well done everyone, you’ve worked really hard this half term. Enjoy your week off!





Year 3 fun

We’ve had a busy couple of weeks in Year 3. We enjoyed a visit from Severn Trent and their education buses. We loved looking for leaks, checking pollution levels and the virtual reality Mine raft games.

In our lessons we’ve loved learning more about the Blitz and have been working hard on our own Blitz artwork. Have a look at some of the photos of what we’ve been doing.

Evacuees for the day!

Yesterday we were evacuated on the Severn Valley Railway to Highley. We all came to school dressed up and we made sure we took our gas masks and identity cards with us. We travelled on the steam train where our identity cards were checked and Ms. Smith was arrested for not having hers with her!

When we reached Highley we visited an Anderson shelter, played wartime games and learnt about rationing in a World War 2 kitchen. After lunch we watched fireighting and travelled back to Kidderminster on the steam train. It was a fantastic day and we learnt lots of new information about the war. It really brought our story of ‘The Lion and the Unicorn’ to life as we imagined how scary it would have been to have been sent away from our families. A lovely day out and everyone’s behaviour was excellent. Lots of members of the public commented on how well behaved Ombersley were- well done!

Have a look below for some photos of our day- we split into mixed year groups so if you can’t see yourself check Year 4’s page too!
