We have made salt dough to help us practice our mixing, baking and kneading skills ready for baking bread.
We have been tasting different types of bread so we have some ideas for when we bake our own bread.
Year 3 had a fabulous visit to the Drill Hall Theatre to watch 'Jack and the Bean stalk'. We then come back to school for parties in our classrooms.
We have been learning about fractions. We made different fractions with cubes and wrote the fraction down on card. Then we visited each others fraction exhibits.
Year 3 have been trained by LIVES to deliver life saving skills.
Art week has involved sketching Roman coins, making paper mosaics and painting a mosaic as a team. We finished the week off with a gallery that our parents and friends came to see.
We have listened to a story about a talking plant using Now press play. We had a great time and produced some great writing as a result of it.
We have been working on under and over arm throws. We threw with our left and right hand to see how our accuracy differed.
In PE we are working on balancing. We created balances on our own and in pairs.
Tree Survey. We walked around our School grounds with a tree identification chart. When we returned to the classroom we used our data to create bar charts and pictograms.
In Science we are learning about what plants need to flourish. We went on a discovery walk around the School grounds looking for locations where plants were growing and where they were not.
Each class learned about who they are named after and presented their research to the rest of the school through song, poetry and performance.
