Learning in Y3

The sun has been shining all week and we have had a fantastic week of learning in Y3...

As mathematicians, we have been investigating the properties of 3d shapes by looking at existing 3d models and creating our own 3d models. The children were resilient and resourceful as they used spaghetti and playdough to investigate the edges and vertices of 3d shapes and fabulous teamwork was displayed by all. We've also been practising number fluency daily through a range of times table games.

As scientists, we have been beginning lots of investigations about plants as part of our "How does your garden grow?" topic. This week, the children have been carefully considering the variables that need to be kept consistent to ensure that a fair test is carried out. The children have planted cress seeds in a range of different liquids to see whether they can find a liquid that is more effective than water for cress to grow in. Check back in a few weeks to see what we have discovered...

Y3GW have been practising their violin skills over the last term and gave a brilliant performance to parents to showcase their musical skill development. The progress that the children have made with recognising musical notation, using the bow and playing as an orchestra has been exceptional. A special well done to all of the children who volunteered to also perform solos, duets and quartets at the performance, everyone did a fantastic job!
