Science and Engineering Days

Year 3 loved being engineers, scientists and learning new computer skills while creating and experimenting with rubber band powered cars. Please enjoy the photos and one of the reports that was created. There is even a short video of one of our vehicles working!

Year 3 Library
Here is our classroom library where Year 3 love to read. Everyone enjoys sitting on the comfy cushions in the library to enjoy a read.  Favourite books include, The BFG, Minecraft books, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the Princess Fairy books. We have plenty of non fiction to read too as well as children's newspapers and magazines. 

Global Read Aloud


Year 3 have started a Global Reading Project. We are reading, The BFG by Roald Dahl. To start the project off we have created models of what we think the giant in the book will be like. Everyone collected junk materials to use from home. (Thanks to parents for this!) Next we worked in groups to create the basic shape of the giant. Next we covered our work with paper and the final part of the process was to paint our creations.

We are really enjoying reading the book together in class. As part of the project we will be linking up with a couple of classes in the USA. We will be reading extracts to each other via Skype as well as taking part in book discussions using TodaysMeet. We will also be making and enjoying book quizzes using Kahoot. Finally we will all contribute to creating our own book along with one of the schools working along side us.

Below are some pictures of us as we started to create our BFGs and also some pictures of our finished work.

Dinosaur Fossils


As part of our Rocks and Soils science topic we have created our own dinosaur fossils. We have been learning the difference between fossils and bones. Although our fossils look like bones they would actually be stone. Ask one of Year 3 to tell you more!
