WELCOME TO Y3C
In computing, we have been working on iPads with Scratch Jr. We had to design our own Viking character, then program him to make him move or talk.
We have been learning all about the Roman Empire and to help us with our studies Richard the Roman came into school to tell us lots of interesting facts about the Romans.
We designed and created our own Roman shields these were used in the whole school procession that took place to celebrate the opening of the Roman arch and seating area in Oliver Henderson Park.
To end our topic on the Romans we went on an educational visit to a Roman Fort called Segedunum. Whilst we there we joined the Roman Army and even got to try on some of the equipment that was used when the Roman Army was in power.
Richard the Viking
We had another visit from Richard the History Bloke. This time he came in to tell us all about the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons and what it was like to live in Britain during the Vikings and Anglo Saxons reign.
In Maths we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes. To help us understand 3D shapes we built a range of 3D shapes and described them to our partners.
In DT we made Viking and Anglo Saxon boats out of cardboard. We had to follow a design sheet carefully when we were making it correctly. Once we had designed and created out boats we painted them so they looked like real Viking and Anglo-Saxon ships.
In English we have been looking at letters. As we were starting our work on letters we received a mystery package through the post. We opened up the package and were shocked to see it contained American Chocolate from an American boy called Hank. He asked us to complete a survey on how his chocolate tasted. We wrote him a letter back saying his chocolate was nice but no where as near as tasty as ours !!
We have been looking at fossils and rocks in Science and decided to make our own fossils out of clay. We decided to fossilize our favourite items from home.
Topic- Coast to Coast
In our topic of Coast to Coast we have been looking at life in America. We have been focusing on the human physical geography features you can find in America. Mr Clydesdale taught us all about volcanoes and hurricanes and we enjoyed learning about this so much he let us make volcanoes out of clay. We looked at all the different types of volcanos and designed our own and even gave it a name.
In year 3 we have been learning all about our community by taking part in Young Enterprise. Me Davies has been in school over the last six weeks teaching us about all the different aspects of life in our community.
