Year 3

SSSShhhss The babies are sleeping.  Year 3 have enjoyed looking after their very own baby potatoes.  They have cared for them, dressed them and even made them a comfy bed for the night.

Baby Potato Project

Bees and Flowers

Our awesome art project.  We used all we had learnt about colour, pattern and mixed media to create a collaborative piece of art.

 

 

Sports Day

Sports Day - It was very different from previous years but we all loved it!

Chocolate Packaging

We have ended the term with lots of practical activities.  

In DT we designed and made packaging for our own unique chocolates.

This half term we have been working hard learning about the tropical rain forests.  We learnt about deforestation and all the reasons why we need to ensure the rain forest are kept safe.

 

We have also learnt about Freda Kahlo, an Mexican Artist.  Her work also included bold back grounds of the Mexican Rain Forest.  Here are examples of our work.

Summer 1

We have been deepening our understanding of capacity by carrying out lots of practical measuring activities.

Science Week

As an exciting start to the Summer term we have been celebrating science week by exploring colour.  This theme has been inspired by the rainbows that were used to represent the work of the NHS during the pandemic.  We linked our learning to our rainforest theme and created animal shadow puppets.  Some were camouflaged; others weren't.

 

We also experimented with Skittles and predicted and observed what happened when we poured water over them?  Would the colours mix?  If not, why not?  

 

Finally, when the sun came out we took the shadow puppets out to see if they could cast a shadow.  Could we make the shadow bigger?  Could we make it smaller?

Science Week

Design and Technology.

Last term we explored different Chinese Inventions.  We learnt that the Chinese invented gunpowder, compasses and kites.  We had great fun making compasses and kites but our teachers didn't think that making gunpowder was such a good idea.

We finished the Spring Term with a virtual visit to a theatre.  We settled in our seats, waited for the curtains to open and watched the brilliant Disney Musical Alladin.  During the interval we had ice cream and pop corn.  As the performance ended we jumped to our feet and gave the actors a rousing standing ovation!  Evan Jafar.  It was a great afternoon, even if the weather had been a little cold for ice cream.
