Year 3

Design and Technology

Today the children brought in their own extra ingredients to add to their bread recipe to customise their design. 

They worked very hard and their bread smelled delicious as it was being baked ! 

Thank you to all the parents who brought in some ingredients. 

 

Art and Design - Clay skills 

Today the children learned how to make a clay pot and lid using sculpture skills. They learned how to join clay together using slip and cross hatch skills and how to strengthen clay,  making a coil pot. We turned these pots into Canopic jars which were used in Ancient Egyptian times in the mummification process.  

Year 3 Ancient Egypt adventure !

Today we visited Liverpool World Museum to find out all about the ancient Egyptians. We learned all about how and why they mummified their dead and we followed trails around the museum to find out about how they lived their lives.  By looking at some amazing artefacts and objects, we learned lots about this ancient civilisation. They really were the Amazing Egyptians !

     

World Book Day Thursday 3rd March 2022

Year 3 enjoyed celebrating books on World Book Day. Well done for all your fantastic outfits! You all looked wonderful. 

We wrote book reviews, shared our favourite books with our friends and went on a book scavenger hunt in our school library. We finished off the day listening to a book about Paddington going to the circus. It was a very funny story and we all loved it as Paddington is one of our favourite characters in Year 3.  Well done everyone! I hope you enjoy looking at the photographs below.

PSHE 

Today we talked about how to stay safe online. The children were brilliant at this and gave lots of good ideas about how to stay safe  and not give away any personal information when playing games. I was very impressed with their answers.

Black History Month 

Rosa Parks 

October is Black History month and today Year 3 have been learning all about this lady. Her name was Rosa Parks and she was born in 1913 in Montgomery , Alabama. Today we had a discussion about the rights of Black Americans living in Montgomery in the 1950's. We learned about segregation and how unfairly people were treated just because of the colour of their skin. 

Rosa refused to give up her seat on the bus for a white person. Her actions were the start of the Montgomery Bus Boycott , leading to desegregation and the improvement of the rights of ordinary Black Americans. The children thought she was brave and courageous to stand up for what she believed in. 

Rosa Parks once said,

"You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right."

Computing - We are learning to touch type

Science - Nutrition - Discussing the amount of sugar in foods
