Year 3

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Ordering Numbers

 

We ordered a range of numbers from smallest to largest in complete silence - it was a bit of a challenge!

 

We then reasoned to estimate the number of pages in lots of different books and then ordered these books from smallest to largest based on our estimations.

What did the Romans do for us?

We have completed some research and found out that the Romans did lots of things for us in Britain today. We worked in groups to decide what the most important things they did was. Each group came up with a completely different list, but they were all exactly right!

Active Sefton

 

Year 3 are really enjoying our 4 week program with Active Sefton. We've been learning all about the importance of a balanced diet and lots of exercise for a healthy lifestyle.

Play in a Day - The Romans

Pyjama Day

Roman Experience Dewa Chester 

Roman Patrol

We loved our trip to learn about the Roman remains in Chester. To start off the day we joined a Roman legion and took off on a march around the streets of Chester. We made our way to an amphitheatre to discover how the Romans enjoyed gladiator fighting.

Gladiators

Exploring the Museum

Judaism 

 

As part of our other faiths learning we had a speaker come in to tell us about how Jewish religion differs from our own. The children asked lots of interesting questions. 

Roman Mosaics

 

We studied some ancient Roman mosaics and looked at how they were created in Roman times. We decided to create our own version using card and paper because using tiles and cement like the Romans would have taken us too long!

Science Challenge

 

We were tasked with the challenge to make a puppet that would create a shadow. The aim was to complete a puppet that was made from either a translucent or opaque object, looked attractive and fit our Christmas theme.

 

We carried out an investigation using objects that could be found in class to find the most suitable material. Our findings were recorded on a ThinkChart. 

Christmas Shadow Puppets

 

We decided that felt would be the most suitable material to use for our puppets as it allowed us to meet the needs of our challenge brief. We created our puppets by sewing and decorating with Christmas colours.  

Shadow Puppets all ready to be sold in the Christmas Fair!

Roman Projects

 

Year 3 completed a project at home to make a Roman artefact. They have done an amazing job!

Spanish Penpals! 

 

Year 3's new geography topic has got off to a very exciting start! We are going to be learning all about Spain's culture and geography. To begin we worked with Senorita to write some letters that we sent to Spain over Christmas to help us find out lots of information about the similarities and differences between us and children in Spain!

DT DAY - Forces and Magnets

 

We had a fantastic day working with Steph to learn even more about forces and magnets. We first created an individual marble maze, before moving on to a magnetic fish game. It was a bust day, but we had a great time and can't wait to try out our two new games!
