Year 3 had a fantastic opportunity to visit the British museum. The children explored certain rooms in the museum relating to the topics which we have covered over the course of the year. The bronze, iron and stone ages were explored alongside the Romans, which is a new topic the children have recently been introduced to. The children were able to take pictures of the exhibits which interested them the most.
Some groups were lucky enough to speak to an expert and were able to touch some of the artefacts, some of which were over 3000 years old!
After we had explored the specified rooms, we had a chance to explore more of the museum. We agreed upon exploring the Egyptian and the Ancient Greece rooms. We were not disappointed with the amazing exhibits on show.
The children enjoyed the visit and behaved well throughout. Hopefully, their interest in visiting museums would have been heightened and they can explore the rest of the museum, free of charge, in their own time, to see more of the amazing rooms and exhibits which they didn’t get to see.
3T Food tasting:
As part of our design and technology work this term we have been looking at healthy eating and having a balanced diet. The children have been exploring sandwiches and by the end of the term, the children will create their own sandwich for consumption, so they better make it a tasty treat!
We have been looking at opinions and discussions during English and for this topic the children debated their favourite sandwich fillings.
Linking to maths we created a tally chart for our favourite fillings and presented them in a bar chart. It turned out that ham was the favourite of the class, closely followed by chicken. The children enjoyed the food tasting and the majority had a go at the dreaded Marmite! Regan enjoyed it so much he took home the treat as a reward.
All children did well to get out of their comfort zones and tried different fillings and maybe opened up some new taste buds!
We have been exploring the gymnastics equipment and improving our fitness levels and stamina in P.E lessons. What fun we have been having!
This week we learned all about our new Science topic of FORCES through PE!
We found out that forces can be a push or a pull, and that there is often a change of direction involved too!
We worked with a partner to feel the equal and opposite force of resistance and explored lots of activities with different equipment to see the effect of the force of Gravity!
Have a look at our gallery below to see us in action...
In ART lessons, we have been learning all about the Primary and Secondary colours and how to create them.
There are three Primary colours and they are:
RED BLUE YELLOW
If you mix them together, you can make the Secondary colours:
PURPLE GREEN ORANGE
we also learned that by adding white to a colour, you make a TINT
and by adding black to a colour, you make a SHADE
Have a look at our gallery of photos, seeing us colour mixing - watch this space for further paintings...
