We will be adding lots of photos, information and pieces of work to this page as time goes on. Please check back soon.
How do you camouflage a crocodile? (Science Week 12 - 19.03.18)
Well I think the answer might be "carefully" but Year 3 have a better answer than that. They investigated to find out exactly how to do it during science week...
Stone Age Works of Art
We have had a go at creating our own cave paintings as part of our Stone Age topic. We used charcoal and chalks in earthy colours and drew simple animals and figures similar to those we have seen in pictures of real cave paintings. It was a messy job but we think they look great.
Reflections in Maths and Science
We have been learning about reflection and what happens to things when they are reflected. We worked with a partner and tried writing and reading messages using a mirror. We also went outdoors to try to follow a line but only looking in the mirror... it was tricky!!
As part of our Egyptian topic we have been learning about the mummification process. In science we have learned how to mummify a real.... tomato (no people or animals were harmed)!!!
We had to dissect the tomato and remove its insides. Then we had to clean it and pack it with salt. Then we put it in a container and covered it with more salt. The salt will help to dry it out and prevent it from rotting. We will revisit our tomatoes later in the year to find out what has happened to them.
Amazing Egyptian Homework Autumn 2017
Wow! What a lot of fantastic homework we have had for our Egyptian topic. There have been models, masks and even biscuits and cakes!!! Well done Year 3 - you have worked really hard....
Trip to the Bagshaw Museum 28/29.9.17
We had a fantastic time on our trip to the Bagshaw museum. We had beautiful weather, a wonderful picnic and learned all about the process of mummification - it was incredibly interesting. Check back soon for more photos.
