Hinduism (3 images)

Year3 have been learning about Hinduism and have been investigating the Hindu festival ‘Holi’. We have discovered Holi marks the beginning of Spring. It is celebrated with bonfires, parties, the throwing of coloured powder and playful pranks. The fun filled festival lasts for at least two days. The eldest male member of the family sprinkles powder on each family member as a sign of good luck. We created vibrant Holi flags as part of our learning journey.

Weston Museum (13 images)

Year 3 have had a really busy start to 2018. We started our new theme with a trip to Weston Museum. We learnt about what life would have been like in the Stone Age. We have also had our INSPIRE sessions which were really well attended – thank you to all who came. The children really enjoyed themselves. In maths, we have been learning about fractions. We have done lots of practical work to show our understanding.

Mayor and Mayoress - June 2017 (6 images)

Year 3 were visited by the Mayor and Mayoress on Thursday 15th June. The children gave presentations persuading the Mayor and Mayoress as to what should happen to the Tropicana. The children talked really confidently. We then had a tea party with scones, jam and cream. We would like to thank the Mayor and Mayoress for visiting us and making the morning special for the children.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside! (10 images)

Our new theme is ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’ and it is a study of our local area. To celebrate Weston’s seaside and all the things we can do there, our WOW event to start the theme was a Punch and Judy show. Professor Paul came to visit and presented his show. We saw Punch, Judy, the baby, the policeman, the crocodile and the clown among other puppets. We really enjoyed the show especially when the policeman got turned into sausages! The puppets cost more than £100 to make each so we weren’t allowed to hold the real ones but could hold these lovely materials puppets of the characters instead.

Autumn Update 2016 (9 images)

Year 3 have had such a busy start to the year. We started our Greek theme with a feast. We had made our own laurel headwreaths and Olympic style medals! Linked with this theme, we have designed and made a Greek amphora and written newspapers about the story of the Trojan Horse. We have been working hard in maths on our calculation work. When we started doing some work with shapes, we made 3D models of some 3D shapes. This was harder than we thought it might be but it was good fun. We have also been studying light and sound in Science. We have been investigating shadows and how they might change. We had a science day early in November where we learnt all about sound. We did lots of investigations to see how sound travels. It was a noisy and exciting day!
