Science Day in Year 3!

Today we had a whole day dedicated to our new Science topic.....Rocks!! We learnt so many amazing new facts and we even got given a special challenge to do at the end of the day!

we learnt all about fossils and how they are formed and about mary anning.

​

we also conducted some experiments to learn about the properties of the different rocks!

the natural history museum sent us this special letter setting us a challenge - to be fossil hunters! we had to excavate the gems from the ice and investigate if there were any fossils in there!

Roman Day 2021

Roman Soldiers I hear you cry! That's us! We have spent the last half term learning all we can about life as a Roman Soldier and what better way to finish our topic than with a day in role as a Roman! We have written some fantastic Roman stories set 2000 years ago in the heart of Italy Rome in a small town you may have heard of called Pompeii. Stay tuned for our AMAZING descriptive writing about when Mount Vesuvius roared to the heavens and rained down her thunder and lava. Or as one Dragonfly described it "Devils blood!"

What makes a good Scientist... 

This week we have been learning what a good scientist looks like. We are very excited to get stuck into our first science topic in year 3.

Travelling inside Non-Fiction...

Today we did the impossible. Today we took our learning to new realms of possibilities. Today we became literary heroes and used magic to travel inside non-fictions books based around Dragonflies to immerse ourselves in the text. It wasn't without risk but we were up to the challenge lead by our dragonfly chief! 

All our traveling and hard work paid of as we managed to gather enough research to write our very own Non Chronological report about Dragonflies.

Finding our wings

We have been working hard this week to learn lots about one another. To explore our classroom. To get to know our new teacher Miss Perkins. We have been writing a class and playground charter.

Everything we have been doing is to ensure that Dragonflies are one big family that care and look after one another.
