It’s all about food!

Like last half term, this term as well, children in year 3 have very enthusiastically completed their home work projects. They engaged in all sorts of activities ranging from writing a shopping list for their weekly menu and calculating its cost to actually making a dish from a recipe book! Many children even managed to make an alphabetic list of food from A-Z, yes it is possible!! Well done for all their hard work and a big thank you to parents as well for supporting their children!!

Year 3 trip to Morrisons!

As part of our Scrumdiddlyumptious topic, we are learning about what a healthy diet is and where our food comes from. On Tuesday, we visited Morrisons to look at the different food available to buy.

When we got back into class, we looked at different fruits and vegetables to find out how much the cost and where they came from.

Church visit!

As part of our R.E. work this term about different places of worship, we visited St. Andrews church. We got to see the features of a church for ourselves and learnt about the job of a vicar.

Writer of the week

The writer of the week is Luiza who came up with some really good ideas about the 2 characters in her adventure story. We all look forward to reading her final piece while she strings her bullet points and gives it a shape of a story!

Keep up the great work, Luiza.

Writer of the Week!

Ruby has worked really hard this week and all term on her handwriting and writing in full sentences. She used her notes to write a non-chronological report about the Stone Age. Well done Ruby!

Science – rocks

This half term, Year 3 explored and investigated all different types of rocks and their properties.

We tested which rocks were permeable and those that reacted with vinegar or not.

We also made our very own sedimentary rocks (out of bread, jam, raisins and crackers!) Each layer represented sediment, soil, plants and animals. When we broke it in half, we could see all the layers – an important feature of sedimentary rocks!

We also tested the hardness of rocks by using sandpaper and observing the dust that was created.
