This term in Science we have been learning about our bodies. In groups, we put together our own skeleton and learnt some of the names of the bones. We explored what bones protect, support and help our bodies move.
As part of our topic about the Vikings, we drew and painted our own Viking longboats using a description from our book, ‘The Littlest Viking’.
We had great fun during our Science day this term. We learnt how planes fly, then made our own paper planes to fly in a competition. We tested whose plane could fly the furthest. We also managed to drain the colour out of skittles!
For Enterprise week we enjoyed making Christmas bauble cupcakes! We made the cakes, decorated them and then sold them at the Enterprise fair.
As part of our Roman topic we made our own Roman vases out of clay and then painted them with a Roman design.
For our home learning projects, we made our own chocolate factory rooms. Some even included real chocolates and sweets! They are now displayed in the Year 3 area.
In Year 3, we have been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. We have enjoyed exploring Mr Wonka’s factory and designing our own!
As part of our home learning, we bought our factories to life by creating our own chocolate rooms! Some of us even decided to use real chocolates and sweets! We have displayed them in our corridor, although it is very tempting to go and eat them!
As part of our Understanding the world we have been learning about the Romans. We learnt about Roman mosaics and how they made them. We tried to use a similar technique and created our own.
In Science we have been learning about different forces. We went outside to play on the equipment to explore what different forces we were using. We found that climbing up the ladder used the force push and pull.
We celebrated Michael Rosen Day and learnt about all the different books and poems he has written. We read his poem chocolate cake which was very funny! We then wrote our own chocolate cake poem, and to give us some inspiration, ate some chocolate cake too!
