In our DT work we have been building bridges. The children have used design features from 3 different types of bridges to create their own design. We have investigated Beam, Suspension and Arch bridges and have included features such as decks , piles, pile bases, hangers, cables , towers and arches. They are brilliant.

Black History Month
This week the children in Year 3 have been learning about Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955. The boycott helped initiate the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama bus in 1955. Her actions inspired the leaders of the local Black community to organise the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
The children have also learned about another bus boycott that happened in this country in Bristol in 1963. Racial discrimination was legal in Britain right up to the late 1960s. The Bristol Bus Boycott of 1963 was the nation’s first black-led campaign against it. It marked a new chapter in the struggle for racial equality in Bristol and the UK and led to the Race Relations Acts of 1965 and 1968. Two men, Paul Stephenson and Roy Hackett organised the peaceful but powerful boycott after a man called Guy Reid-Bailey went for an interview with the Bristol Omnibus Bus company but was turned away because he was a Black Jamaican. They were inspired by the actions of Rosa Parks 8 years earlier.

Reading in Year 3
Thank you for all your hard work reading with your child in Year 2.
As children move into the Juniors and into Year 3 it is ever more important that they continue to read often and with an adult. As part of our homework policy we expect children to be reading regularly at home. If you have any questions on how best to support your child with home reading please come and see us.
Below is a link to a website that recommends age appropriate books for Year 3 children.
