Last Friday, Year 3 and some of Year 4 used watercolour paints to illustrate a beautiful sunset. It was lovely having a mix of children working together on their art. Here is the display of their finished work outside Year 3.
On Tuesday 11th March, Year 3 went to the Liverpool World Museum. We had great fun exploring the different floors of the museum and the workshop was fascinating. There were so many different artefacts from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.
We tested tin foil, plastic, fabric, carpet and tissue to see which had the most friction when we rolled a glue stick across it. Year 3 love doing Science!
We have been learning about how people in the Stone Age got their food. We made our own weapons and used them to hunt for prehistoric animals and wild foods around the classroom.
Year 3 have been learning all about rocks, and this week we sorted them into Sedimentary, Igneous and Metamorphic. We were really good at recognising the properties of different rocks!
On Friday, Year 3 made a terrible mess in the classroom when we built skeletons of the 3D shapes. We had some really good pyramids and cubes in particular. Thank you to the children who stayed behind at Lunch to help clean up!
Year 3 really enjoyed Wealth and Work week! We learnt lots from the adult helpers and discussed what careers we might want to go into.
We have had a lovely run up to Christmas in Year 3. We're all tired out from the Christmas party and all the dancing it entailed!
Year 3 have been exploring light and shadows in STEM week. We now know that light travels in straight lines, and we know the meaning of the terms opaque, translucent and transparent. We had lots of fun finding things around the classroom that we could test with our torches, and we also used…
Lots of fresh air for Year 3 when we had to take our PE lesson outside! Everyone is fantastic at doing chest passes now.
Next time you come into school, please take a look at the gorgeous artwork that Year 3 did last week! We had lots of fun with glitter and chalk.
Year 3 is off to a flying start. This is us looking excited and ready for a new year! Since this photo was taken a couple of days ago, we've already said goodbye to a couple of old faces and hello to new ones.
