Term 5

Year 3 continued to 'delve' further in to the Stone Age this week: Bridge Farm experienced some unusual visitors walking around the playground who left some gross remains! The children explored and excavated some Stone Age 'coprolites' to find out what was eaten during the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic times. They also debated the accuracy and usefulness of different types of historical sources from the past, and discovered how the Stone Age diet changed over time. Well done for showing impressive creativity and curiosity!

In Science this term, 3LB have loved learning all about rocks and soils which has fitted in very well with their topic of ‘Meet the ancestors’ all about the Stone Age. The children explored a range of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks and investigated their durability using a paperclip, their hardness using sand paper and permeability using water. They then explored the rocks’ density by investigating whether they would float. The children even investigated a pumice stone which they found floats!

3LB have thoroughly impressed the teachers this term learning about fractions. They have been using concrete resources such as cones, multi link and even cake and smarties to identify and find fractions of number! The children used cones outside and multi-link in the classroom to find unitary and non-unitary fractions of different numbers. The children enjoyed using sentence stems to justify how they found the different fractions. At home, we have loved seeing children continue their fractions learning too.

3LB used cake to explore equivalent fractions and then used strips of paper to also find equivalent fractions.

Term 4

Year 3 have really enjoyed being reunited since school reopened: this term in PE they have been showing effective teamwork and resilience skills. Check out these photos of the children working on one of their key skills!

Term 3

Mrs Barrow has been blown away by 3LB’s efforts during their Science remote learning this term. The children have learnt all about the human body and have used graphs to interpret data, explored invertebrates and vertebrates, and understand how to keep the body healthy. Well done for an amazing attitude to your Science this term!

Term 2

3LB have thoroughly enjoyed reading The Polar Express this term. When they first read the book, the children created amazing Northern Lights art work using pastels, and they wrote some outstanding poems using exceptional adjectives.

They immersed themselves in the text by imagining what it would be like to go on the Polar Express journey, writing impressive diary entries where they used hidden emotion, adverbs and powerful verbs. They then were inspired to write fact files about Father Christmas, including subordinate clauses and linking phrases.

The children are hoping to watch the film as a Christmas treat on the last day of term!

Term 1

The children have thoroughly enjoyed exploring James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. They have produced some exceptional character descriptions which they are very proud to have on display outside the classroom. The progress they have made since coming back to school has been brilliant and Mrs Barrow is very impressed with their efforts!

This term the children have been learning about forces and magnets. They really enjoyed investigating which materials are magnetic, and which magnets are the strongest. Mrs Barrow was also very impressed with their team work when carrying out the investigations!
