As part of our Roman topic we designed and created Roman vases out of clay. We carved our designs into our vases and then painted them using colours similar to those used by the Romans.
For Enterprise week Year 3 had fun baking and decorating bauble cupcakes to sell at the fair. We each made a special box to put a cupcake in for our families to buy, as well as lots more cakes for everyone. We also made posters to advertise our cakes and stuck them all around the school.
In Science we have been learning about magnets. We designed and created our own magnetic board games and had a lot of fun trying out each other’s games.
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!
