Year 3 have enjoyed testing a variety of materials with a torch and a reflection tester to see which ones are reflective. They then listed them in order of most reflective to least reflective.
Light and dark
Our new topic in Science is light and dark. We worked in groups to create a mind map of what we already know and what we would like to know about. We then grouped light sources and non light sources before putting our hands in a feely bag to guess what objects were in there. We soon learnt that it…
Year 3 and 4 had a lot of fun at their Christmas party!
Year 3 and 4 have been learning how the digestive system works. We conducted an experiment to learn where food goes after entering the mouth.

In maths, we have started our unit on area. Today, we were learning what area is and using sticky notes to make different shapes that had the same area.

As part of our topic 'Ancient Maya,' Year 3/4 have enjoyed designing, making and painting their own Ancient Maya death masks.

Year 3 worked so well collaboratively to perfect their mirrored balances with a partner. They produced some fantastic sequences of three balances with smooth transitions from one balance to the next.
The bones in our body
We labelled the bones in a human skeleton before working independently to label our own skeleton.
