We have worked so hard in maths this week! We met the Blockzillas who have helped us to compare numbers. First we had to find a number in the classroom that was either greater than, less than or equal to Mrs Robinson’s number and then we worked in pairs to compare our own numbers!
Our first topic of the year is a history topic all about toys!
We have started the topic by bringing in our favourite toys from home.
We had so much fun sharing them with our friends and thinking about what they are made from.
Well done Class 1!
As part of our Ancient Egypt topic, we were set with the task to design and make our own Egyptian death mask.
We used a range of techniques and tools to create our masks and then, when they were dry, we painted them!
Well done Year 3, they are fantastic!

This afternoon we were visited by Laura from Animals UK. She introduced us to her millipede Wiggly Woo, Charlotte the tarantula, a Burmese python and Scout the meerkat! Laura told us so many interesting facts and we were able to look at…
We have loved our art this half term! We have looked at the work of Orla Kiely, William Morris and Lindsay Phillips. We designed our own leaf prints and then made them using cardboard and string. Today we have created a print strip and we are very proud of our finished art work. Well done Year 3!
As a class we have spoken about what deforestation means and why it is happening. In groups we sorted positive and negative effects of deforestation and then all made a promise of what we can do to help protect the rainforests. Well done Year 3!
In Science this week we have been learning about the parts of a flower.
We dissected a flower with our partner and watched a video to find out the job roles of each part.
We then learnt about the process of pollination and how this leads to fertilisation.
Great work Year 3!
To finish our Forces and Magnets topic we designed and made our own magnetic game. We looked at a selection of magnetic games already on the market and then designed our own.
We were all very creative and came up with a great range of ideas. We then made our games and enjoyed playing them with…
