Design and Technology

In Year 3 this term we made vegetable soup inspired by Anglo-Saxon recipes. Members of the class brought in a variety of vegetables which we learnt to peel and chop safely.

We then used the school kitchen, and Helen, our cook, helped us to make the soup.

We all tried it, some of us went back for seconds... and even thirds!

Year 3 Computational Thinking Day at BT

We worked on eight different challenges throughout the day. Each challenge was designed to develop our computing, scientific, mathematical and technological skills. Throughout the day collaboration was an important skill to use as we worked with others to design and test algorithms using a variety of different equipment.

Year 3 Greek Day

On Wednesday 16th January 2019 Ninny the Greek visited Year 3 to help us with our learning about the Ancient Greeks. We came to school dressed in our Greek costumes and had a super time learning about the Greek city states and their rulers, the Greek mathematician and inventor Archimedes, armour and weapons and the first Olympic games. We played strategy games, tried to solve a mathematical puzzle and held our own mini Olympics (Greek Style!)

Year 3 Pre History visit to Ipswich Museum October 2018:

On Friday 12th October Year 3 visited Ipswich Museum. To find out more about our history topic - Stone Age to Iron Age, we joined in with a Pre History workshop where we found out about the hunter gatherers, we planned out our own Mesolithic settlement and we made our own clay pots!

Design Technology - Cam Mechanisms. We chose to focus on rainforest animals to link in with our learning in Geography.

Science and Geography - As part of our learning about rock formation we have investigated how different rocks are formed using chocolate!

Maths Eyes - We looked at a photo of a pyramid structure built from triangles and investigated it in our own way.

Maths Eyes - We looked at a photograph of synchronised swimmers and developed our own maths ideas.

RE - We have been learning about Sikhism.
