We’ve had a fantastic first term swimming! We’ve all improved a lot in a very short space of time.

Some children have achieved badges. If you would like to buy your child’s badge and certificate then please bring £2.75 to purchase them next term. Alternatively, you can buy them directly from the Meridian Leisure Centre. A full list of badges can be seen in the school’s sports blog.

A quick update

We’ve had a very busy time in Year 3.

In science last week we investigated what science could do to food. We made edible slime, exploding chocolate drops and bouncy eggs!

In music we made our own shakers and drums from peppers!

This week in maths we’ve been using arrays to multiply. Can you see which number sentences we’ve made?

And finally, in science yesterday we investigated which materials are reflective and which materials aren’t.

Roman workshop

We’ve had a very exciting first week of history fortnight. We were visited by Ian from the Heritage Lincolnshire. We learnt all about what the Romans brought to Lincolnshire and the UK- including which foods! Ian also showed us some artefacts from Roman times which were found in Lincolnshire. We saw a real glass bottle and broach which have survived all of this time!

A busy few weeks.

We have had a very busy and exciting final few weeks of our first term together in Year 3.

Having finished writing our instructions we put them to the test and used them to make our very own jam sandwiches. Using our instructions allowed us to see how we could improve them.

Having finished our instructions we moved onto our new text type. We read and performed different nonsense poems and will soon be writing our own.

In maths things have been getting very practical. We’ve been working on adding together a 3 digit number and a 1 digit number using different methods.

This afternoon we’ve been improving our team working skills by creating our own carrot cars for the carrot car race. Team points were given to the car which looked most like a car, the team which showed best team working skills and the winner of the carrot car race!

More baking!

Yesterday we learned about the different food groups and how much of each you should eat in a day. Today we used our knowledge of keeping healthy to bake some healthy treats. These included coconut and raisin flapjack, banana muffins and cinnamon, raisin and apple muffins. We are getting very good at following instructions!

Bread baking

Today we have been following instructions to make our own bread. We had to find our own ingredients, weigh them and follow the instructions very carefully in the right order.

After it was cooked we tasted the bread we had made and other different types of bread from the shop. We discussed how they tasted using some amazing adjectives and talked about which ones we preferred and why.

Lots of fun in Year 3

We’ve had a very exciting couple of days so far in Year 3! On our wow day yesterday we came dressed as our favourite fruits and vegetables, tasted some fruits we’d never tried before and even guessed what different foods were only by touching them.

Today we’ve been on a trip to the Co-op and learned even more about food. We had a talk about where food comes from and how the shop makes sure all of the food in the store hasn’t gone bad.

We were lucky enough to go into the warehouse where the food is kept before it goes onto the shelves. We went into the big fridge and freezer rooms! They were absolutely freezing!
