Lockdown 2021

We want to thank all our families at this difficult time.  Those working on frontline jobs and protecting the health and well-being of our community, thank you for your service for us all.  We are pleased to be able to support your children in school.  For those at home thank you so much for the enormous efforts you are putting into the home learning and the support you are giving your children.  We can see that they are engaging so well and producing some super work.  I want also to thank all the staff who are working tirelessly to keep all the plates spinning in school.
If you need any additional support or advice, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Please take care and keep safe.

Year 3

Odd Sock Day!

On Friday, at the end of Anti-Bullying week, we wore odd socks to celebrate that we are all unique, but we come together as a whole community at Queen Edith.


Year 3

Ancient Greek Theatre Masks

As part of our Ancient Greek topic, we learnt that actors wore masks. We decorated our own Greek theatre masks and watched a short piece of a Greek play.


Year 3

Shadow Puppets

As part of our science topic on Light and Dark, we predicted which material would be best for making shadow puppets. After we had discovered that black card worked well, we made shadow puppets and acted out a Greek myth.


Year 3

Ancient Greek Mini Olympics

We had a mini-Olympics to celebrate that the Ancient Greeks created the first Olympics. Although we couldn’t do the activities that the Ancient Greeks did, we had lots of fun moving from one activity to the next, and writing down our record scores!


Year 3

Ball-Rolling Experiment

In Year 3 we investigated how far a ball would roll on different surfaces. We were careful to keep everything about the experiment the same, using the same ball and the same ramp, except that we did the experiment on different surfaces. We found that on smooth surfaces, like the desk top, the ball rolled furthest, but on rough surfaces, like the grass, it rolled the shortest distance.



Year 3

Ancient Greek Clay Pots

We learnt that Ancient Greek pots came in all shapes and sizes. We made our own Greek pots using clay, then decorated them using the colours the Ancient Greeks used. It was hard to attach handles so that they didn’t drop off!
