In our Science lessons we have been looking at magnets and seeing how magnetic certain objects are. The children have enjoyed discovering which things repel and attract each other and why.
Our topic this half term has been 'Out of the box'. We have been designing and creating sandwich boxes. The children cut carefully around the net and folded them accurately ready to stick together.
The children have also worked very hard planning their sandwich to go inside their sandwich box. The children have examined different breads for texture and sandwich fillings for flavours. Here are some pictures of their final products.
In our Science lessons this half term we have been learning about plants. We have enjoyed planting our seeds and are looking forward to watching them grow.
On Sports Relief Day we enjoyed playing rounders and learning a new song and a dance. We learned about the importance of Sport Relief and why and how our money can help others.
This half term Year 3 have been experimenting with light and shadow. The children have found that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by a solid object. The children have also looked at different materials to examine whether they are reflective or not.
