Making the Perfect Sandwich for Manfred the Baddie 

As part of our design and technology work, we made sandwiches for the character from the literacy story we are looking at this half term. We had to design our sandwich first and then use our skills to carefully chop, grate and peel the ingredients. We have used the process to write our own set of instructions, then we got to take the sandwiches home to enjoy. We had lots of fun!

River Mersey 

On Tuesday, Year 3 enjoyed a trip to The Museum of Liverpool where they learnt all about our new geography topic on The River Mersey.
We had so much fun!

Rock Café 

As part of our topic on rocks, we have been learning about the 3 natural types of rock: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. To help us understand the process of each rock formation, we used different types of food and applied heat and pressure where needed to create the new rock forms. The children thoroughly enjoyed this experiment and learnt a lot of information about how rocks are formed. 

World Book Day 

Today we had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day. We broke the rules by wearing our own clothes, painting our nails and colouring our hair. We also took part in some fun World Book Day activities. In Maths, we had to solve word problems related to famous book characters, then in Literacy we went on a book scavenger hunt in the library where we got to explore lots of different books. We have had so much fun!

Art

Year 3 started their art topic today with Mr Doyle, learning all about the artist M C Escher. They started by sketching a portrait of the artist and over the next 5 weeks they will be creating a new master piece based on his work around tessellation and print. Watch this space for more wonderful work!

Spy Day

As part of our literacy topic, Year 3 got to dress up as spies for the day.

During spy day, we designed our own spy gadgets and then we got to make them using different materials.

We had so much fun!

The Romans

In Year 3, as part of our Romans topic, we have been learning about Hadrian’s Wall. We learnt and performed a poem for you to enjoy!

The Romans 

Last week, we started our work on the Romans. We looked at the vocabulary and learnt words such as gladiator, amphitheatre, emperor and centurion.

We then had a look at the invasion of the Romans. We made posters for each of the three invasions, looking at when they occurred and what happened during each invasion.  We then presented them with our learning partners to the rest of the class.  

Pirate Day 

Yesterday, Year 3 enjoyed dressing up as pirates for their pirate day.  They listened to pirate stories, found their pirate names and even took down their enemies' ships in a good game of battleships! We had so much fun!

Geography 

As part of our new geography topic this term, we have been using atlases to locate the different counties of the UK on a map. We have also located the county we live in.

RSHE 

During our first week in Year 3, the children have been setting themselves personal goals that they would like to achieve. As part of our first jigsaw piece, Being Me In My World, the children have also been celebrating something they have already achieved and something they are proud of. To help us celebrate this we made our own medals.
