Year 3

A visit from a Stone Age man

In early October, Stokes Wood 3 children had a visit from a Stone Age man . As you can see by the photos, he was happy to share his animal furs and the children tried them on. They also learned about the stone tools he brought with him. During the morning the children talked about how the Stone Age man evolved over many thousands of years from an ape like creature to an upright man or woman . Apart from being interesting and informative, it was great fun too.

Year 3 Health and Wellbeing event

30 children enjoyed an active day at Beaumont Leys Secondary School in September. They learned all about keeping themselves physical fit as well as emotionally well and had a great time whilst doing it.

Massed choir De Montfort Hall

The Year 3 choir sang beautifully at De Montfort Hall as part of the Leicestershire schools’ massed choir. They were the youngest pupils there and represented the Stokes Wood proudly. They then sang for parents at school and for the Abbey Care Home residents.

Camping at Ullesthorpe

Year 3 staff and pupils enjoyed an evening, camp overnight and a day’s outdoor activities at the end of June this year. It was a great opportunity and experience for everyone, enjoying simple games in the woods, like hide and seek; forest school activities, art and crafts, putting up tents, campfires and generally being more independent. It was a really good two days and all year 3 children took part in at least some of it.

TAG Rugby

Mr Sorby, Mrs Freeman and Mr Driver took  a a large group of Year 3 children to play Tag Rugby at South Leicestershire Rugby Club as part of a Leicester Tigers healthy living project. As you can see, they had great fun as well as learning lots of new skills . They are looking quite good... maybe some future Tigers players amongst them.
