Year 3 have been visiting the local library this term. The children have loved choosing and borrowing books to read. There are lots to choose from!

Luckily we will be visiting the library again very soon.

Year 3

Exploring light and shadow!

A Mahmood (amahmood) on: Year 3

                  

In Science, we explored 5 different challenges related to our topic: light and shadow. We decided which tasks to work on and moved to another task whenever we wanted so we could explore at our own pace. We classified objects, asked and answered questions, set up practical enquiries and explained our observations. We particularly enjoyed making colour spinners and investigating whether we could make light travel around a corner! Fantastic enquiry skills year 3!

Year 3's trip to Woodland Farm

D Peck (dpeck) on: Year 3

This week, Year 3 took a trip to Woodlands Farm in Shooters Hill to get ready for their science topic on plants next half term. This was a great chance for the children to see a variety of plants in a different setting and even have a go at planting some themselves!

However, their favourite part had to be seeing the farm animals and getting to touch them. The guinea pig and the sheep were 3DP’s favourites!

Literacy teamwork!

D Peck (dpeck) on: Year 3

In Year 3, we love to learn from each other's ideas!

Before our Big Write, we worked in groups to produce a suspense-filled description of a cave, hidden in the desert. By working in groups, there were lots of different, fantastic ideas which meant that our final pieces of work were fantastic!

Stone Age Art

D Peck (dpeck) on: Year 3

        

During Art Week, Year 3 were inspired by Georgia O'Keefe to recreate the skulls of terrifying Stone Age animals. We experimented with charcoal to create tone for our skull and paired this with a bright, contrasting background, just like Georgia O'Keefe's paintings. Then, we chose a key feature of our skull to emphasize, using papier mache to build a 3D structure.

Have a look at our results. What do you think?
