Science - Plants

 

This half term we have been learning about the different parts of plants and their jobs. We have also learned about the lifecycle of a flowering plant. 

Our scientific enquiry this half term is looking at whether plants will grow with water and no sunlight, or sunlight with no water. Most of our predictions were that the plants would grow better with water but no sunlight!

Maths - Fractions of Amounts

 

This half term we have been learning how to work out fractions of amounts. We have used bar models to help us with this. Take a look!

Maths - Identifying Fractions

 

This half term we have been learning how to recognise and name fractions. Take a look at some of our amazing work!

Computing - Google Slides

 

This half term we have been learning how to create a presentation with Google slides. So far we have learned how to add slides, add text boxes and add images.

We are getting very good at making things look good so it is more engaging for our viewer!

 

History Day - The Celts

 

This year we have learned about changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We have recently been learning about settlements in geography and learned about Iron Age settlements.

For history day, we dressed as Celtic warriors - 'tattoos' and the works!

We looked absolutely fierce.

We put on a play for the school about the Celts.

Here are some pictures of the play and some from behind the scenes. 

 

English - Free Verse Poems

 

This half term we have been learning about different forms of poetry including free verse poetry and kennings poetry. The children created their own free verse poem about rivers using inspiration from the well known free verse poem 'Magic Box.'

Please watch the video below which shows the children's poems and also you can listen to the children performing parts of their poems.

Discovery - Water, Water Everywhere

 

Over this half term we have learned about rivers and the different elements of rivers. The children have created model rivers and signposted different parts including valleys, waterfalls, springs, the source, tributaries, oxbows, meanders and streams. 

Discovery - Water, Water Everywhere

 

This week we have learned about the water cycle and created posters to explain about the water cycle. We learned some key vocabulary like EVAPORATION, CONDENSATION, PRECIPITATION AND ACCUMULATION and we have learned about large bodies of water.

The children were very creative with their posters and worked well together to make them informative and appealing!

 

Discovery - The Stone Age

 

Over the course of this half term we have read many books relating to the Stone Age. One of them was 'Ug: The Genius Boy of the Stone Age.' In this story, Ug is desperate for new trousers because he doesn't like his trousers that are made from stone. He wants softer trousers.

Therefore we set off to work! We designed and created a new pair of trousers for Ug and used our cutting and sewing skills to put them together. Here are the finished pieces!

Discovery - The Stone Age

 

This week we are learning about Stonehenge. We recreated our own version of Stonehenge using lollypop sticks. To do this, we had to use our teamwork, problem solving and creative skills!

Science - Rocks

 

We have looked at the school's collection of rocks and thought about what type of rock each one is. Firstly, we considered whether they were igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary. Then, we looked at some common rock types and tried to match each rock. 

Discovery - The Stone Age / Europe

 

Take a look at some of our learning from this week in discovery! We have learned about some human features of Europe, including some key landmarks that are famous and we have identified which country they are in using our map skills.

We have also learned about food that was eaten in the Stone Age and even made some Stone Age Stew and tasted it! We wrote some fantastic instructions about how to make it, so that all our Stone Age friends can try it too.

Maths - Place Value

 

Over the last few weeks we have been learning all about 3 digit numbers and their place in the linear number system. We have learned to represent these numbers using different resources and have learned to estimate where numbers belong on number lines with different intervals. 

Take a look below at some of the work from our maths books!

Roald Dahl Day

 

For Roald Dahl day the children and teachers had a great time dressing up as a character or wearing his favourite colour - yellow!

In year 3 we focussed on the book 'Matilda' which the children enjoyed learning about.

We created a poster for a new headteacher to replace the awful Ms Trunchbull and we also created Matilda illustrations based on Quentin Blake's work.

Take a look below!
