Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

The inspiring staff in Year 3 are Mrs Evans, Mrs Bayes, Mrs Dawson and Mrs Jolly.

Below contains details of the activities the children in Year 3 2017 - 2018 were involved in. Soon this will be updated with the great things our new Year 3 2018 - 2019 will be doing!
This week Year 3 have been exploring our new topic for this term, The Ancient Egyptians.  We have searched for artefacts inside a tomb, constructed pyramids using spaghetti and marshmallows, solved hieroglyphic clues to find hidden treasure and carried out internet research.
Today the children of 3KW looked at seedlings in order to understand how their root systems respond to the space in the pots. We then made scientific drawings of the plants, before planting them into hanging baskets to watch how they will grow in larger pots.  

3KW Study of Plants

Year 3 children thoroughly enjoyed science week. First we learnt about gravity. Then we worked together to create a safe landing vessel to bring our brave 'Egganauts' safely down to earth.  

Science Week

This half term, year 3 topic will be 'Our Wonderful World.'

To begin our topic, we visited Lower Smite Farm in Worcester. Here we learnt all about where our food comes from. First we found out how to make compost and discovered how worms can help soil. Next, we tested the soil to find out which was the best for growing plants. Then we discovered how bees help to fertilise flowers. Finally we used rhubarb grown on the farm to make our own rhubarb crumble. It was delicious!
