Swifts

Welcome to our class blog! 

This term we are exploring the fantastic topic ‘Flow’.

Throughout the topic, we are exploring rivers and the following questions… What is the river process? Which animals make their homes there? How can rivers be used by different people? Why are they important?

We will also be exploring the water cycle and making our own water cycle models.

In Art, we are going to be mixing water colours creating beautiful paintings. We will also be learning about Monet and recreate the famous waterlilies painting.

Making 3D Shapes With Marshmallows and Spaghetti!

This week, we have been enjoying our new Maths topic 'Visualising Shape', where we have been exploring 3D shapes. On Friday, we were able to create 3D shapes using just spaghetti and marshmallows! 

 

Monet Artwork

This term, Year 3 have developed their painting skills.  The children have practised mixing primary colours and have now created beautiful versions of Claude Monet's 'Waterlillies'.  Feel free to look at the masterpieces in the gallery below.

The Water Cycle

This week we have learnt about the water cycle.

We discovered that water on Earth is constantly moving. It is recycled over and over again. This recycling process is called the water cycle. We created our very own water cycle plates!

1. Water evaporates into the air

The sun heats up water on land, in rivers, lakes and seas and turns it into water vapour. The water vapour rises into the air.

 

2. Water vapour condenses into clouds

Water vapour in the air cools down and changes back into tiny drops of liquid water, forming clouds.

 

3. Water falls as precipitation

The clouds get heavy and water falls back to the ground in the form of rain or snow.

 

4. Water returns to the sea

Rain water runs over the land and collects in lakes or rivers, which take it back to the sea. The cycle starts all over again.

THE AMAZING BEAN JOURNEY

THE AMAZING BEAN JOURNEY

Written by Olivia (Year 3B)

WEEK 1-This week, we have planted beans for science. We have planted some with no soil and some with soil. Surprisingly, this week it has been growing extraordinarily well!! This week they are starting to grow shoots.

WEEK 2-Surprisingly, three of them have been growing yellow, these are the no light test ones, so this tells us that they need light to become green…

WEEK 3- The plants are now approximately 60cm tall!! The plants with light and water have been growing the best. So at this stage the plants do not seem to need the soil to grow.

WEEK 4-   After the weekend, the plants seemed to have grown even more, the ones in soil seem to have bigger leaves than the ones without. The plants with no light are not growing very well as it hasn’t got any leaves because they don’t have enough light. I think they don’t have leaves because, the leaves need the sunlight.  

WEEK 5- Plants in the cupboard still look weak and yellow. The light test is growing incredibly well as it is growing like a flash and the leaves are growing very well as well.

WEEK 6- The ones with no soil have been growing quite well, but not as well as the ones with soil. These are measuring 90cm approx..

Ladies in School Day

13/03/19

 

Today, we were joined in our learning by some of the children's Mums/carers.  They joined in with timestable practice and used their problem solving skills to tackle some tricky Maths challenges.  In English, we started planning a new adventure story based on Oliver Jeffers' book 'The Way Back Home'.  In the afternoon, we read the story 'The Dot' by Peter Reynolds and used it to inspire us to create colourful artwork.
