Year 3 news...

Computing

We have been creating different loops and sequences using scratch in our computing lessons. We are becoming little computing experts!


Forces

We have had so much fun the last few weeks in our Science lessons. We have been learning all about forces and using magnets to help us. We even experimented if magnets still attract through different materials. Some of the results were a shock to us!


Unique UK

As part of our Unique Uk topic, we have been studying maps. We have also been sketching famous UK landmarks and have made group collages of London landmarks. Look at our giant outline of the UK!


Science

Our science topic is ‘Humans and other Animals’ so we have enjoyed learning the scientific names for the different bones in our bodies. We looked at X-rays of animal skeletons and had to guess which animal the skeleton belonged to. We know why humans and animals need a skeleton and how our muscles work.

 


Rumpelstiltskin

In Literacy we have been retelling the Rumpelstiltskin story using the ‘Talk for Writing’ process. We then produced our own reports about a different, much uglier goblin!

Port Sunlight Trip

Year 3 had a fantastic time during our trip to Port Sunlight. We went for a lovely walk and saw the famous soap factory that we’ve been learning about in History. We also visited The Lady Lever Art Gallery, the museum and cottage. We found out lots of information about Victorians. For Geography we looked at a compass to find out where all the famous landmarks could be found.


Food Tasting

In our History lesson we tasted some very strange Victorian food. We enjoyed the scones but we weren’t sure about the pickled mussels.

 


Punch and Judy

We have been making Punch and Judy puppets in DT. We sewed the coats first and then we made the heads. We love our finished puppets.


Division Work

Year 3 have been learning all about division with remainders during Maths Lessons. We are getting really confident at this!
