Science week!

March the 11th saw Science Week come to William Barnes and Year 3 threw themselves into all things scientific.

We begun the week with a visit from the Science Dome, an inflatable projection experience. Year 3 focused on Light and Sound but still managed to squeeze in some extremely excitable planet exploration. 

On Wednesday, parents and carers were invited to join us to support our learning. We 'attempted' to create our own balloon cars using plastic bottles. This did prove quite challenging however all of the children showed their resilience and determination (with parental help!) to create a balloon car each. Finally, we raced these cars using the wind to our advantage.

Young budding artists

Year 3 have begun a new topic in art where the focus is on using different mediums and styles to draw bodies.

We begun with using felt tips to sketch bodies in the style of Julian Opie. Take a look at some of our work!

Measuring methods!

Year 3 have had an exciting maths week investigating measures. We have found out about mass, volume and length and had a go at measuring these ourselves with great success. To follow up our learning, Year 3 will have some measurement Mathletics tasks to complete.

First HTSW

This week (24th – 28th September), Year 3 attempted their first Home Talk - School Write of the year. We used our class story of 'The BFG' by Roald Dahl as our stimulus to write a character description of the Big Friendly Giant. Every child put in a tremendous amount of effort and produced a solid character description. Throughout the rest of the week we will be editing our work to make improvements and then writing a final draft.
