Year 3 Events Gallery 2018-19
Take a look at some of the great things we have been doing in our class.
Stone Age Trip - May 2019
Year 3 had such an exciting experience at Hollingworth Lake Forest School. We spent half of the day exploring the lake for wildlife and signs of spring. We then spent the other half of the day learning and experiencing how the people in the Stone Age lived. We even collected resources and made our very own fire!
World Book Day - March 2019
Today was World Book Day and we had a great assembly. Some of the teachers were dressed up as characters from ‘The Jolly Postman’ and they acted it out whilst Mrs. Ragan read the story. Later on we went to the Lees Library and listened to ‘The Twits’ read by one of the librarians. We has to listen really well so that we could answer the questions in the quiz.
How do I Move? - December 2018
We have been spending some time looking at the sugar content in foods that we eat daily. Year 3 were very surprised at the recommended amount of sugar for adults and gave suggestions to their client’s to help them have more of a balanced diet. We have also looked at how our muscles work and used exercises to make our muscles work harder.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
We have been looking at many different ways people in Oldham recycle their rubbish. We collected some of our own junk to reuse and create Christmas Decorations. We used many different materials that we would usually put in our recycling bin! We were very pleased with our results and painted them in Christmas colours.
British Values - November 2018
Our Year 3 classroom has been turned into a voting station this week. We have been using the book ‘The Day The Crayons Quit’ to carry out our very own campaign. We have had to collect data and present it using pictograms, present a speech to our voters and persuade others to vote for our crayon.
Investigating Light - October 2018
During our light topic we have been carry out a range of investigations to find out how light travels by using a range of different objects, torches and a very dark room! We now know that light only travels in straight lines and we need light for us to see, our eyes are definitely not a light source. We have created whizzer wheels to represent the colours of the light spectrum.
