Year 3 Alder

Hello and welcome to Alder's class page!


Mrs Case is the class teacher.

Mrs Stevens is the teaching assistant.

Mrs Andrews will be teacher training in Alder until Easter.


Please keep checking the page for class updates and to see all the exciting things we have been doing!

We made clay pots like they did in the Bronze Age on Dartmoor!

Alder have written fantastic traditional stories! Please come in to class to read them!

Today Alder class took on different roles that would be needed to climb a mountain such as climber, doctor, photographer and leader. They experimented with different freeze frames related to climbing Mount Everest. They also did a 'conscious ally' they then had to decide whether they would want to climb Mount Everest or not!

This term our topic is 'Misty Mountain Sierra'. Mrs Andrews has planned an extremely excting project, the children are finding out about Mount Everest and they have learnt an incredible amount already! We were lucky enough to be given some mountaineer equipment for the children to explore, they thought about why each bit of equipment were important. (Pics to follow)

During our topic 'Awesome Egyptians' we were visited by an archaeologist. Here are some pictures of the day!

During an instructions block, Alder followed instructions to make cupcakes. They turned out brilliantly!

Alder were lucky enough to be involved in planting trees around the school. Here are some pictures of them digging the holes and carefully planting the trees following Mr Hibbert's expert advice!

We enjoyed tasting fruit during our topic of Scrumdiddlyumptious!
