Year 3


Applying our Science learning about light and shadows by creating our own shadow puppets

National Numeracy Day 2024

Year 3 working hard as a team to solve The Mystery of The Spoiled Party Bags as part of our National Numeracy Day 2024.

Library Visit

The children enjoyed their Library visit last week. 
In Science we have investigated how shadows are formed and change through the course of a day.

Spelling Bee

Four of our children competed in the School Spelling Bee. They were all amazing and we were very proud of them.

Science – Fossils

As part of our Science work the children used bread and toy dinosaurs to create our own cast fossils. The children were able to describe the fossilisation process using the correct terminology.

English – The Green Ship story Map 

As part of our Power of Reading work on The Green Ship by Quentin Blake we have enjoyed a range of activities including a conscience alley to allow the children to explore the thoughts and feelings of characters from the book. We then created a whole class story map using the images from the book. We then added key information from each part of the story to help us when orally re-telling and writing the story. 

Art – Texture and Frottage 

During our Art lessons, we have been investigating different ways of creating texture.  We went on a texture hunt around the school looking out for interesting textures. We then used wax crayons to take rubbings. Once back in the classroom each child used their rubbings to create a prottage  image of their choice using their different rubbings to create texture.  

Science – Animals including humans – Skeleton properties and moving muscles. 

The children are really enjoying our unit of learning about the human body. They have enjoyed finding out about endo and exo skeletons as well as sorting animals into invertebrate and vertebrate. We have measured bones and created our own moving models to show how muscles help us to move.
