Additional Experiences

During the Spring Term, Year 3 had the opportunity to visit St Illtyd’s Catholic High School to take part in a music transition event. The children enjoyed the whole experience, which included playing the Glockenspiel and Violin, along with some conducting too!

 

In the Autumn Term, Year 3 visited St Fagans to enhance their knowledge within the Cut Throat Celts topic. The children took part in an Iron Age workshop, to experience life inside a roundhouse. They particularly enjoyed the weaving. In the afternoon, the children became archaeologists to unlock secrets of the past, exploring a Celtic warrior grave!
