Year 3 have lots of exciting things coming up in Term 5, such as RE day, recorders lessons and a DT workshop.

DT Minecraft workshop

Year 3 enjoyed taking part in a DT Minecraft workshop run by UWE. The children had the opportunity to develop their design skills and help design new ideas for the Temple Quarter area in Bristol. Their creative ideas and solutions will be considered by Bristol City Council.

As part of RE Day, we visited a Hindu Temple to learn more about the religion of Hinduism. Additionally, we made a traditional Hindu dip, Raita. Mrs Vaughan also shared her experience of being apart of a Hindu community and showed us photos as well as her Sari from her Hindu wedding.
