Y3 Outdoor Learning Day

Y3 braved the outdoors for our session on rope skills. There were four activities running through out the day: Activity 1: Challenges to tie different knots (reef, overhand, half hitch and timber hitch). Activity 2: Using shear and square lashing to create structures. Activity 3: Create a friendship bracelet using a basic knot. Activity 4: […]

Y3 Science – different joints

As Scientists, we investigated how our skeleton provides: protection, support and movement. We found out about the different joints: ball and socket, gliding and hinge. We designed a playground game that had to include movement of all 3 joints. We played these games to keep us fit and healthy!

Y3 RE – Rangoli designs

Rangoli patterns are bright patterns on the floor by the door to welcome visitors into Hindu homes. Do you like our Rangoli designs? We hope they bring joy to you like rangoli designs do in Hindu homes.

Y3 Maths Place value – ordering numbers

As Mathematicians, to consolidate our understanding of place value we made our own 0-1000 number lines. In groups, we labelled multiples of 10 and 100 then placed random 3 digit numbers on our number lines. Are they all in the right order?

Y3 Science & Outdoor learning – types of skeletons

As Scientists, Year 3 found out about the different types of skeletons: vertebrates (back bone) and invertebrates (no back bone). These skeleton types were further classified into: endoskeletons (back bone and bones in side body), exoskeletons (no backbone and bones outside of body) and hydrostatic skeletons (no bones). We sorted different different animals into these […]

Y3 Science – food groups

As scientists, we found out about the five different food groups: carbohydrates, protein, fats and sugars, dairy and fruit and vegetables. We went on a treasure hunt to find lots of different foods and sort them into the correct group. Then we investigated how different foods have different functions on the body. For example, protein […]

As part of our new Learning Journey ‘Fantastic Food and Brilliant Bodies’ we found out about the 5 food groups: dairy, protein, carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables and fats and sugars. As scientists, we went on a treasure hunt to find lots of different foods and sort them into the right food group. We discussed how […]
