Year 3 news...

Science Week- Making Slime

We have had so much fun during this year’s Science Week. The focus was ‘growth’, so we enjoyed making our very own slime and seeing how far it stretched! 


We have been looking at different types of cameras through history and taking our own pictures using different angles and points of view. We can’t wait to later edit our photos to make them even more interesting!



We have been creating some very exciting artwork in class recently. We have been mixing primary colours to make secondary colours to create Cezanne styled painting. We have also enjoyed sketching in the style of Cezanne creating still life images!




Year 3 are really enjoying their Science topic ‘Plants’. We have been busy dissecting plants to learn all about the different parts. We found out all about the different jobs each of the plants do. It was great fun and so interesting!

An investigation we really enjoyed during our ‘Plants’ topic was, investigating how water affected the growth of plants. We soon realised how important watering plants actually is!



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


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!


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.



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!
