Wow what a term Nightingales have had. Here are some of the highlights of our learning.

During the first half of the term, Nightingales learnt all about the Stone Age and how this period transition through the Bronze Age and Iron Age. This topic was rounded off with a trip to Butser Ancient Farm.

Butser Ancient Farm

Butser Ancient Farm is a unique experimental archaeology site nestled into the rolling countryside of the South Downs National Park. The farm features archaeological reconstructions of ancient buildings from the Stone Age.


Art Week

Year 3 had an amazing week looking at a range of environmental art and the chance to make our own.



During P.E the children have combined their gymnastic skills with their IT skills. Through our use of seesaw the children were able to capture their learning, save it to their profile and then review it to see how they could improve. This is such a versatile tool that we cannot wait to use it in other aspects of our learning.



This term we have been strumming the ukuleles. We have learnt our first two chords and how to strum. After taking a pause to practise the Christmas concert, we will apply our skills to some songs, with the emphasis on timing.



In science we have explored nutrition and what animals including humans need to eat to stay healthy. As part of this, Nightingales got to make healthy snacks to sell to the rest of the school. This enterprising challenge meant that the children not only had to use their new science knowledge but to apply their maths skills. This meant that we had to work to a budget; adding up the total cost of our ingredients and then carefully weigh them out using scales.

The challenge was a great success with children from all year groups coming along at break time to purchase their snack.
