Year 3 News

Autumn Term - Week 8 - 23 October 2020

This week, Year 3 had a Science day learning all about forces, friction and magnets. We carried out fair experiments using force meters to see how much force was needed to pull a shoe along different surfaces. We found that some surfaces created more friction against the shoe meaning it took more force to pull. We also learnt about magnets and magnetic force and had fun finding out what a non-contact force is using a magnet and a paperclip.

Autumn Term - Week 7 - 14 October 2020

This week, Year Three have been using body percussion to make sounds that you might find on a building site. They worked together to agree the best ways to make the sounds for a plastering trowel, saw, drill and hammer and nails.

This week, Year Three have continued to have great fun in PE learning golf and archery skills.

To kick start our new English unit using the book ‘Star in the Jar’, Year Three had the chance to look at stars and even sit under a starry sky! Using some amazing vocabulary to describe stars, each class had the chance to come up with a name to call their very own class star. Greenfinch called their star The Majestic Mesmerising Star and Chaffinch called theirs Graceful Wonder. Each child has taken home a certificate with the location to find this star above Bracknell- happy star gazing!
