In Science this half term, we have been learning about Rocks. For our Science day this half term, we investigated which types of soil were the most permeable. The children set up an investigation, making sure that it was a fair test, using a range of different soil types, measuring cylinders, filter paper, funnels and containers. We had to measure how much water was absorb by the soil before it was filtered through the funnel into the container. The children were very interested in the investigation. They did some fantastic scientific write ups in their science books. 

Week beginning 5th February 2024

Over this half term in DT, the children have been researching and designing marble mazes. This week, each class will make them. The children will be using wooden dowels and hack saws, along with a strong cardboard base to ensure that their mazes are sturdy enough for a marble to run through it. 

Week beginning 29th January 2024

In Music this half term, Year 3 have been learning different Viking saga songs. They have taught us about different Viking gods and goddesses. A firm favourite of the songs was Loki the Joker. Each class have performed and filmed the song for you to watch. Enjoy!

For PSHE this week it was all about team work and encouraging others to be successful.  The children were challenged to build together out of K'Nex and support each others ideas.  This also tied in nicely with Agent of Change: Working Together and so all we're able to receive another stamp in their passport. 

As we have come to the end of Autumn Term 1 the children have brought in some amazing homework relating to 'The Stone Age'.  Well done year 3 for all your hard work.  

Week Beginning 9th October 2023

It was great to have all the children back this week. We have been learning about South America. As part of this, we made a South American snack called an Empanada. This involed the skills of chopping, grating, weighing, and making pastry. We have also been enjoying creating carnival masks and other crafts.
