Welcome to Year 3!
The inspiring staff in Year 3 are Mrs Evans, Ms Wiseman, Mrs Bagley and Mrs Peats.
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.
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.
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!
