We used different materials such as chalk, pastels, charcoal, and paint to create our pictures. They all turned out amazing!

Pancake Tuesday in Year 3.

Year 3 had great fun making pancakes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. Reputedly they were the best pancakes the children have ever tasted!

Y3 have been learning all about capacity and how we measure liquids. We were investigating how much water different objects would hold and had so much fun doing it! It was so hard not spilling any of the water.

What we got up to in Maths Week 2021!

In Year 3 we played some games involving money. We played money bingo where we had to add up the coins our teacher held up and mark off the amount if we had it. We got so competitive! We also played a telling the time board game where we had to identify the time that we landed on. Some of us also got to play snakes and ladders which involved us having to identify numbers up to 100! We had so much fun and worked really hard!

Road safety week

Road safety week commenced on 15th November and Mrs Reid’s class went for a walk down the avenue to raise awareness. We spotted tactiles and zebra crossings and brushed up on all the ways we can stay safe as a pedestrian. In class we are using the “Step out with Scooter and Hattie” road safety booklets to reinforce the message!

 

Home sweet home

Y3 finished their topic of Home Sweet Home by carrying out an experiment. We made houses from straws, wooden lollipop sticks and lego bricks then made predictions about which houses would blow over. All our predictions were correct and the only houses left were made of lego bricks. We had so much fun getting to build houses!

Halloween Dress up Day

Minibeast Trip

Miss Mullan’s Y3 class got the exciting opportunity to go on a trip to Parkanaur with Holy Trinity Primary School. During our trip we learned all about minibeasts which will be one of our topics later on this year. We found out about all different kinds of minibeasts such as spiders, centipedes, ladybirds and worms. The best part of our day was when we got to go on a minibeast hunt in the forrest in our different groups. We looked really hard and found lots of minibeasts including spiders, woodlouse and worms. We even seen a frog!! The boys and girls had so much fun!
