Year 3 visit Windsor Castle

Year 3 visit Windsor Castle

This week

Year 3 had a fantastic day out on Wednesday at Windsor Castle. The children were surprised at how big it was and how much it had changed over time. We looked at the arrow slits and the battlements and thought about all the defensive features of the castle. We were also lucky enough to see the changing of the guards and felt a little sorry for the guards in the freezing cold. We visited St George’s Chapel and admired the beautiful stained glass windows. The children were fascinated with the elaborate tombs of several British monarchs. We learnt about the Knights of the Garter and how each family has a different emblem. After lunch, we had a talk about Knights and this ended with Queen Amara “dubbing” George a knight for the day. Jester James also managed to make Lady Lily laugh by juggling – expertly! We then had time to look at Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and some of the Queen’s state rooms which were full of paintings and lots of gold! We looked at all the emblems in St George’s Hall and admired King Henry VIII’s suit of armour (noting his rather large tummy!). The whole year group enjoyed the trip and can’t wait to go again. 3AS would like to give a big thank you to Mrs Page for supporting us on our visit.

At home

We are starting to work on our Easter production of The Magic Key. The children will be bringing their words home on Tuesday and it would be great if they could have learnt them by the beginning of the next half of term. In addition, Mrs Mock has asked if the children could bring in empty cereal boxes to help with their art project for Take One Picture. Thank you in advance.

Next week

We will be finishing off our RE topic which has focussed on “What do Christians believe God is like”. We will be looking at the Apostles Creed and the children will be thinking about what they believe in. The children will also be thinking about what they think God is like and choosing their own way to represent their thoughts.
