During Remembrance Week, Year 3 have had a fascinating time exploring different aspects of World War I. We have taken on the role of the Secret British Intelligence Unit and intercepted and decoded messages outlining the German strategy for the war.
Throughout the week, we have also written letters to the Unknown Soldier, explored life in the trenches and re-enacted and reported on the events of the Christmas Truce. We also enjoyed creating silhouette art showing soldiers from the Great War.
We would like to share with you our tribute to the fallen soldiers who sacrificed their lives for their country.

On Monday, Year 3 visited Coal Clough library and took part in a storytelling workshop. We enjoyed listening to a chapter from George's Marvellous Medicine and predicting what happens in Winnie's New Computer. We had a great time browsing through the children's books and found examples of folktales that linked to our English topic.

In Science we are learning about light. Fortunately, the sun was out so we took our learning outdoors and had a great time observing and tracing our shadows. We learnt that our shadows formed on the ground because the light from the sun was blocked by our bodies which are solid. We also created Halloween puppets whilst exploring how shadows change size. We found that a larger shadow is formed when an object is closer to the light source.

On Monday, Year 3 visited The Weavers’ Triangle where we learnt about the cotton industry in Burnley during the 19th Century. In 1886, Burnley was producing more cotton than any other town in the world. During our visit to The Weaver’s Triangle, we discovered how cotton is made from a plant and turned into a cloth. We saw fascinating objects from the mills in Burnley including a kissing shuttle and a cotton loom.
We experienced what life was like for Victorian children at school and explored what life was like inside a Victorian home. In the evenings, girls would learn to sew whilst boys often went to night school to learn the mechanics of the cotton looms. Unfortunately, they didn't have televisions or an Xbox.

We went on a field trip to Scott Park to observe and record human and physical features in the local area. During our walk, we noticed Pendle Hill, monuments and a small stream. Before returning to school, we collected different coloured leaves and conkers.
