Bark Rubbings

In science this term we are learning all about plants. We have identified different parts of a tree and explored the differences between evergreen and deciduous trees. Today we looked at some of the deciduous trees outside of our school and had fun doing bark rubbings.

Incredible Instructions

Class 3 have been writing instructions about how to take care of a pet. They came up with lots of good ideas about what different pets might need, and wrote clear instructions using numbered points, bossy verbs, adjectives and connectives!

 

Sensational Sculptures

Class 3 researched famous landmarks from around the world and created some brilliant sculptures of their chosen landmarks using clay. The clay felt very cold and squishy.

The completed sculptures included the Angel of the North, the Egyptian pyramids and even the Taj Mahal!

Super Subtraction

In maths this week we have been subtracting multiples of ten from 2 digit numbers, we were very good at counting back in tens! We know that when we take a multiple of ten away from a 2 digit number, the units digit always stays the same.

Capacity

This week we have been learning all about capacity. We had fun estimating and measuring the capacity of different containers using non-standard units. We then began to look at standard units of measure and investigated which containers could hold more than 1 litre of water and which could hold less than 1 litre.

Super Structures

Class 3 are designing and creating structures using recycled materials as part of this terms art topic. They had fun making their structures and sticking on sugar paper to make them more colourful. Our classroom got very messy…

The children will begin to add more detail to their structures next week.

3D Shape Hunt

Class 3 have been learning all about 3D shapes. The children went on a 3D shape hunt and found lots of different 3D shapes in the environment. Then they named and labelled a range of 3D shapes and identified how many faces, edges and vertices each shape has.
