Year 3

Spring 2021

 During the spring term we were in our second lockdown, most children were at home isolating but this didn't stop our science learning of forces and magnets! We were able to demonstrate push and pull forces using different objects at home. We were able to describe magnets having two poles and how they attract and repel particular materials, and we even created our own games which included designing a maze and using a magnet to move our character around the maze successfully.

Autumn 2020

During the Autumn term, year three identified that animals, including humans, need the right types and amounts of nutrition everyday. We drew and labelled our favourite plate of food and then changed some of the items to improve the nutritional value. We explored the different nutrients in food and recognised that animals cannot make their own food.

We also identified that humans, and some animals, have skeletons and muscles to help them move and provide protection and support. We created and labelled the human skeleton using different types of pasta!
