Year 3 have got Twitter! Please follow our accounts to be able to see what we get up to in our classes during the day. We will be posting pictures and tweets to keep you all up to date.
Parks Trust Walk
We walked down to the River Ouzel to have a fun session with Parks Trust. We have been learning about Rivers in our topic lessons but our guides were able to teach us even more about our new favourite word - meander! We did an experiment to see how fast two different sections of the river were by plopping a dog biscuit in and timing how long it took to get from one place to another. Also, we were able to see erosion and deposition happening along the river as we walked further up it.
Ameida in year 3 Heron's class won the NHS wheelchair competition. She designed a fantastic wheelchair for children and had the opportunity to go to Milton Keynes hospital to see her wheelchair in action. A local newspaper went to capture the event and see the unveiling of her fantastic design.
Congratulations Ameida, we are all so proud of you!
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
We are so excited to have started our new topic based around Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We will be reading the book in lessons and learning about where in the world chocolate comes from. We have an interesting trip to Cadbury's World in November where we will be able to get a first-hand experience of chocolate making before we make our own back at school!
What a fantastic first term we had in year 3!
We had a fantastic Ancient Egyptian museum on Friday 21st October and we loved showing all our adults our learning. We showcased our dances, educational songs and hieroglyphic secret codes all linked to our Ancient Egyptian theme, it was definitely worth the visit!
In year 3 we have been enjoying the last of the summer sun by doing lots of learning outside.
