Mona Lisa Masterpiece

As part of our reading week the children listened to the story of Leonardo and the Flying Boy. The children really enjoyed listening to the story and learned more about Leonardo da Vinci. The children were then set a challenge to create a display in a day. The children coloured in pieces of the Mona Lisa and then pieced this back together to create their own masterpiece. Their work was amazing!

Amazing Author in Reading Week

Today the children in Year 3 had a visitor. Mark Carton was in our school as part of our reading week. He read The Book Spy with the children and gave actions that they had to do as he read certain words. The children then had a great time solving riddles. It was great to hear from an author.

No Pen Day Performances

Today the children were not allowed to use pens. The children were told that they had to create a performance about an author from the past. The children in Year 3 loved learning about Dr Seuss and his stories. The children then used their performance time to tell their audience a little bit about Dr Seuss and then performed actions to his story Oh, The Places You’ll Go. The children loved Dr Seuss’ phrase…

The more that you read, the more you things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Finding the mass of objects

Today the children in Year 3 were able to use scales to find the mass of objects in our class. We discussed units of measurement we would use to measure objects and then chose items in the class. We estimated their mass first and then worked as a group to weigh these different objects.

Brilliant Bridge Builders

Today the children in Year 3 went to the Discovery Museum in Newcastle. The children were given a guided tour of the museum where they found out information about different types of bridges and learned about the different bridges across the River Tyne. The children then used their design and technology skills to test which bridge would be the strongest and were then challenged to create their own bridges with a budget. The children loved the challenge and it was lovely to see their bridges in action. Well done Year 3 for another lovely visit out of school.

Snots and Sneezes

Year 3 have had a fantastic afternoon learning all about bacteria and snots!

The children took part in a workshop run by Newcastle University. During the workshop the children found out some very scary facts about bacteria and what they can do to our bodies, but they also found out that some bacteria are friendly bacteria and good for our bodies.

During the session the children used a UV light to see how much bacteria was on their hands before and after washing them. They designed their very own bacteria, but by far the best part of the afternoon was making their very own snot!

Incredible Investigators

Today the children in Year 3 carried out their own investigation. They tested different surfaces to see which surface created the best bounce for a ball. The children used their equipment effectively and predicted which surface they thought would be the best. The children then displayed their data in a table and in a bar chart. The children in Year 3 are having an amazing time in science week!
