In Literacy we looked at a range of fairy tales and what they contain. We discussed that they usually contain good and evil characters. There is often some magic involved in them and they often contain a moral. We acted out some well-known fairy tales with our groups before writing our own fairy tales.
Can you guess what some of these ones are?
In PSHE we have been developing our team working skills. We had to find our teams by finding out who had the missing pieces to our puzzle in order to complete our picture. We then were given a plate, piece of foil, Pritt stick, scissors, a lolly pop stick and two pieces of Sellotape and asked to build a boat. The boat had to support three Lego people, be at least 10cm long, have a sail at least 20cm high and float. We were not allowed to use a ruler so had to use our estimation skills. It was very important that we worked as a team in order to be successful.
In Science we have been investigating plants. We looked at the roots and the different parts which make up a plant. We used a magnifying glass to help us investigate. We then had to draw a detailed picture of what we had seen.
In PSHE we worked on our team work. We learnt all about the importance of good communication and working together. We learnt about listening to each other and taking it in turns to share our ideas. We had to build the biggest tower we could from six sheets of paper and Sellotape. The tower had to be free standing and stand for at least five seconds before falling over. We could rip the paper by hand but could not use scissors. It was a challenging task.
Year 3 Parent Activity
During our Parent Session we used our atlas to locate places in Ancient Greece. We discussed why they settled in Greece and where Greece is located in Europe. We identified which seas surround Greece and which countries borders it.
Year 3 Celtic Harmony Camp
In History we have been learning about life in the Stone Age. We visited Celtic Harmony Camp. We took part in a range of activities such as making bread and weaving. We looked at how they would have lived in those days and the tools they would have used. We were able to see what the Round Houses would have looked like which they lived in.
