Year 3

Welcome to Willow and juniper class

This is what we are learning, understanding and

remembering  this year.

DT Day

Year 3 had so much fun on their DT day making pneumatic toys. Their challenge was to make a toy where the lid of a box opened using pneumatics. They learnt that pneumatics devices use compressed air to move something. They experimented with a tube and two syringes to see how compressed air could make each end of the syringe move in and out. They applied this understanding to their toys and attached a tube to a balloon which they placed inside their box. They then blew air into the tube and it inflated the balloon and that made the lid of our boxes open! They had great fun designing and making their toys!

Investigating the Stone Age.

Recently, Year 3 were historians. They looked at primary sources of evidence from the Stone Age.  They were not written sources of evidence because they were prehistoric.

They studied the artefacts carefully and asked questions like ‘What might the artefact be?’ ‘What is it made from?’ ‘Who might have used it?’ ‘What questions can help us learn more about that period of time?’

They also wondered ‘Why has the bowl got patterns on it?’ ‘Why is there a hole in the middle of the wheel?’ ‘What is the large hook used for, is it to hunt a bigger animal?’

Cheddar Caves Trip
Year 3 had a fantastic trip to Cheddar Caves. They saw incredible limestone stalactites and stalagmites, a skeleton of The Cheddar Man, huge truckles of Cheddar cheese and even a bat!
They also met some Stone Age people who showed them how they survived during Stone Age times. He showed Year 3 how they made tools, lit a fire, sheltered and hunted.

As our school logo is  a tree we have all chosen tree names.

In Year 3 we are Willow and Juniper classes. Here is a PowerPoint telling you about our trees.
