Testing the Hardness of a Rock
Year 3 designed their own science investigation into how to test the actual hardness of a variety of rock sample. They thought about the equipment needed, the method to carry out and how to maintain a fair test.
Experiencing a Day in the Stone Age and Iron Age
Year 3 had a wonderful day when they were visited by “Portals to the Past.” They all dressed up as stone age or iron age people and explored what life would have been like in those periods. They were informed, entertained and had the opportunity for hands on sessions. A truly wonderful day.
Investigating Stone Age “Poo”
As part of their wonderful history topic on the Stone Age, the children were finding out about the diets of people living in that time. They investigated this aspect by examining the remains of Stone Age Poo (not real poo!) They used scientific equipment to examine and identify key aspects of the diet.
Children in Year 3 had amazing fun creating some rocks out of sweets. As part of their science work the children squashed together different coloured sweets and then baked them in the oven. They created bizarre rocks after they had cooled.
Place Value in Mathematics
The children have been working hard to develop their understanding of numbers, especially place value. The children are great at manipulating equipment to help solve investigations.
Oliver Jeffers Project
Year 3 focussed on the book “Here We Are” by Oliver Jeffers. They created some amazing work across all areas of the curriculum.
