Look at some of our amazing labyrinths we have made as part of our home learning!

We have been finding out about life in Sparta and life in Athens in Ancient Greek times, and how different the two city-states were.  In P4C this week, our enquiry question was: “Was it better to live in Sparta or Athens?”

Exploring Ancient Greek artefacts...

Today we measured out the size of a real Greek warship, called a Trieme, on the field! They were 35m long and held 200 men! We had to position ourselves in threes, at different heights, for each set of 3 oars - just like on a real trieme! We had to make sure we all rowed in time, and had to take care not to fall off the plank as we stepped off the ship onto the shore!

Today we made a giant human timeline across the whole playground, scaled down to help us understand how long ago different periods of history were and how many years were between them.  Poor Lilia was all by herself because the Stone Age was such a long time ago!!! It helped us realise just how much has happened in the last 2000 years compared to the BC years!  The timeline was so big that Mrs Francis had to take a panoramic photo!

We used a scratch away art technique with wax crayons and paint to create our own Greek pots!

Our morning with Hobgoblin Theatre Group watching Perseus and Medusa and taking part in drama workshops!

To start off our topic, we were given secret envelopes with the name of a Greek God inside. We had to research the Greek God and create a toga to represent them!

This term our topic is...


We can't wait to show you what we get up to!


Look at our hand made watches to help us practise telling the time!

On your marks... get set... go! We started off our maths unit on time by estimating and timing ourselves doing different challenges!

As part of the RSPB’s Big Bird Watch, Holly Class went bird watching in the school grounds. We had to be very stealthy and quiet to make sure we didn’t scare them away!

The Hindu story of Prahlad and Holika... as told by Holly Class puppets!

Take a look at our East Meon charcoal sketches of buildings in the you recognise them?

 Holly Class used their programming skills to complete Probot challenges this week. Each group wrote, tested and debugged algorithms to make their Probot move forwards and backwards, draw a set of stairs and draw a square. We had to think carefully about our precise directions to be successful. Next week, we will use our knowledge of East Meon to draw a large map for Probot to travel to different locations in the village. Take a look at our photos below! 

Our topic this term is...

Look out for us around the village when we go exploring to see what our local area is like!

Booooo! Look at our sad faces! Today was our last swimming session at Churcher’s! We have absolutely loved our lessons for the last 10 weeks. Year 3 can’t wait to do it again next year!

The East Meon History Group took us on a Victorian tour of the village!

Thank you to everyone who came to our parent drop in to look at our brilliant work and watch our Talk For Writing performance!

This week was International Week! Take a look at some of the exciting things we have been up to!

Look at some of our amazing times tables games we made for our homework!

We have been finding out about how Hindus show devotion in their worship in RE...

We are learning about Oliver Twist! We made a giant story map then acted out the story in groups. Can you tell which pictures are when Oliver asks for MORE gruel?

We had some beautifully presented poems for our home learning this week! Take a look!

We have been learning about 'The Chimney Boy's Story', a poem by Wes Magee.  We learnt the poem off by heart along with actions and performed it to the rest of the school! Watch this space for a video of our performance!

Our Victorian trip to the Weald and Downland Museum!

Our topic this term is the Victorians!

To start off our topic we had an exciting trip to the Weald and Downland Museum where we got to experience what it was like to go to a Victorian school (it was definitely scarier back then!), do some Victorian cooking and brush up on our skills at Victorian chores!  Take a look at some of our photos above to see what we got up to!
