Today Y3 went on a fantastic trip to Saxmundham Free School. We spent the morning delving into history and learning more about King John. We had to decide what kind of king he was based on the different sources. We found out information about him and in our groups we drew caricatures of him, collected adjectives to describe him and sorted the sources into good and bad. By the end of the morning we had decided that he really was a bad king!!! It was great fun and we learnt a lot.
Today in Year 3 we have started our new unit on Dips and Dippers. We discussed different types of dip and dippers and tasted 5 different types of dips, using nachos and carrot sticks that we cut up ourselves.
Tasting the 5 dips: Salsa, Guacamole, Humous, Sour Cream and Chive and Cheese, helped us decide which dip we might like to make ourselves. Mrs Matthews was so proud of us because we were all so sensible and willing to try all the dips and made sure that we used a sharp knife carefully and safely. A great start to a new Design Technology project.
