Year 3 Events Gallery 2020-21

Take a look at the fun things we have been doing in Year 3 this year.

 

Eco - March 2021

As part of our ECO learning, Year 3 have been designing and creating the 'dream machine' that would help our planet recycle better. Year 3 presented their ideas to their class and evaluated each other's work. We have also taken part in a competition with Recycle for Greater Manchester to create something out of our recyclable rubbish. We have had lots of fun and hopefully we will win a prize!

Recycle for Greater Manchester - March 2021

We have has the chance to get a tour of the recycle center in Manchester as part of our 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' topic. We loved having chance to ask lots of questions and finding out what happens to our rubbish once it is collected from our houses.

 

Precious Plants - March 2021

As part of our topic, we are trying to get the front of school looking tidy and ready for spring with some new flowers and colour. Watch this space...

Back Together - 8th March 2021

Year 3 have loved being back together again as one whole class! We have had so much to share and celebrate!

Magnetic Magic - March 2021

We have been learning all about different forces in the classroom and carrying out our own invesitgations with magnets in the classroom.

Queen Victoria - March 2021

We have been learning all about Queen Victoria and here we are planning how each country can display their inventions for the Great Exhibition! We had to use our spacial awareness skills and find out how each item is going to fit inside the palace.

World Book Day - 4th March 2021

We have enjoyed World Book Day catching up with our Year 3 friends learning at home as well as seeing their outfits. We have all shared our stories and had the Awful Auntie reading us a snippet too!

Merry Christmas - December 2020

Year 3 wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.

Christmas Activities and Panto - December 2020

On Monday, we all arrived at school in our posh clothes for our Christmas party. We played lots of games and finished it off with a Christmas movie and party food. We have also been busy in class using our DT and art skills to make Christmas cards and calendars.
We had our annual pantomime in school this week (virtually). We loved making our props to hold up to the Genie on the Zoom call while watching Aladdin.

Commando Jo - December 2020

We had the opportunity to take part in a whole class secret mission this week with Mrs Wilkinson. We had to complete a challenge to replicate the Eiffel tower by building something tall, sturdy and safe with the equipment we had. We impressed Miss Lawton with our excellent communication and we presented our towers to the competing teams.

Dance - November 2020

We have had so much fun during our dance topic in PE. We have learned a traditional English dance and we got the chance to swap roles and teach the routine to Miss Lawton. We are continuing our dance topic and are currently learning an Egyptian dance too!

 

Takeover Day - November 2020

We have had a very exciting opportunity with Gallery Oldham to take part in a virtual Takeover Day. This involved learning all about the artist William Stott from Oldham. We looked in detail at his painting called 'The White Mountain' and all created our own poem. Due to the gallery being closed at the moment, all of our learning his going to be put into an online exhibition on the Gallery Oldham website. As soon as it is online, we will let you know.

Pyramid Problem Solving - November 2020

The Ancient Egyptians used building blocks to build their pyramids and we had some challenging problem solving that included building pyramids and estimating how many blocks we would need.

Mummification - November 2020

We now know how the Ancient Egyptian's mummified their bodies when they died. We acted this out with our class and had a competition to find the best wrapped mummy.  We needed 20 layers of linen!!

 

Let There Be Light - October 2020

Year 3 have been learning all about light and shadows in our Science topic. We have been investigating how light travels and what a light source is. Here, we have been making small holes inside cardboard boxes to try and find the objects that Miss Lawton has hidden. We found out that our eyes need light to see and light only travels in straight lines.
