Year 3

Our Class Charter

We had a very own market today on the Hawthorn playground . The children spent most of the day preparing for it . First the children made posters to advertise the market . Then after playtime we made our very own fruit on sticks, popcorn surprise ,butterfly  surprise and a smoothie . 

After lunch time , we made bunting for our stalls .  We all had a chance to be a seller and a buyer and all had 50p to spend .

We set up our stalls in the playground and was able to purchased  something from another stall or from our own .  

Year 3 , really enjoyed the whole day and had lots of fun . 

Take a look at our photos . 

Gill from The Country Trust visited the children today to show them what a weed was and how to weed. The children worked hard to weed around the vegetables they had planted. There was lots of excitement as the children could begin to see some of the vegetables , including the tips of radishes, emerging from the soil. After that, the children learnt about the different types of soil and used a flow chart to identify the type of soil that was on the school grounds and some of the ones Gill had brought in with her. The children were successful at doing so and even presented their ideas to the class. 

Just after playtime, the children were involved in identifying the types of things that could be added to compost, using their ideas around natural and man-made materials to help them with their answers. Gill told us that it wasn't a good idea to add cooked food to compost as that could cause pests! The children ended their visit with Gill with a quick anagram game that tested their knowledge of fruits, vegetables and mini-beasts that can be found in the garden. It got very competitive!

On Friday Bailey our Rights Respecting Bear took his place and watched Year 3 in their PE lesson .

We did an experiment in Science . We had a discussion about if we put a flower in water along with some food colouring what would happen .The children had lots of different predictions , the flower might die, it would turn yellow and it would stay alive and grow . Take a look at our pictures . Can you see which predictions were correct ?

Year Three discussed the spelling rules for adverbs ending with the -ly suffix. They were given a list of -ly adverbs and had to find the matching spelling rules for each of the words .

Year 3 had an amazing day celebrating Eid .

Today our Country Trust session was to make our own Couscous Salad . The children was shown safe ways of using a knife to cut their ingredients  for their salad using the bridge and claw with their hands. 

The whole class really enjoyed themselves and think a lot of them were looking forward to trying their salad when they get home . Also the children got to show off their cleaning skills by washing up and and wiping the tables clean . Gill also gave the children some hummus to try with carrot sticks  ( which were cut up by the children )  

Year 3 have been taking part in an experiment .

We planted seeds . We placed 1 in a dark environment , 1 we put fertilizer in with the seeds and 1 we didn't give it any water . 

We will upload the results in the next few days.

What do you think will happen to them ?

Our results after a week . The one set of seeds carried the soil to the top . Do you know why ? Also can you see how the seeds which have had no light are so long . The children think this is because they were trying to find light and had stretched .

In literacy this week we have been identifying the Subject and Verbs in sentences. The children were shocked to be able to write on the tables with their white board pens . We cleaned it straight off after taking the pictures .

Today we had our 2nd sessions will Gill from Country Trust . The children help to made scare crow to keep the birds away from our crops. We also place grapefruit juice in into plastic tubs and placed them into the dirt , this is to stop the slugs from eating our crops .

Welcome back year 3 . We had a fun afternoon in BSL . The children learn't the signs for confused,angry and surprised . The children have to use facial expressions along with the sign .
