Mrs Farley would like to welcome you to our fabulous Year 3 class!
Welcome to our class webpage where you can find out about our amazing learning journey. You will find information about our activities, examples of our work and comments from us! Please visit often to see our learning journey develop.
As part of our DT and science work we designed, created, tasted and evaluated our own healthy sandwiches. We chose our ingredients very carefully, making sure we selected food from the different food groups. After we had tasted our wonderful creations, we evaluated them thinking about what we liked and what we would like to change. Most of us enjoyed our sandwiches although ketchup and banana might have been a tad to creative for our taste buds......
Ancient Egyptian Homework Project
Thank you to everyone for the tremendous effort that was made with our homework project. The work was outstanding and it was lovely to see the enthusiasm of the children when sharing their work. Keep a look out for our next homework project in the spring term.
A huge thank you to Emma from Active Sefton for our very relaxing yoga session this afternoon. It was wonderful to see the children engage in a new activity and relax after a very busy week in school.
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind
For our new science unit, Animals including humans, we have been learning about a healthy balanced diet. The children have been exploring different food groups and there purpose. We have also explored healthy and unhealthy foods. As part of our Healthy Habits session with Emma, we have explored the sugar content in drinks. It was very interesting and quite surprising to see the amount of sugar in some drinks. Next, we will be exploring animal diets and skeletons.
Our Morning at Pizza Express.
We had a very exciting morning at Pizza Express. A huge thank you to Mark and Craig for our wonderful pizza making experience. The children were able to make their very own pizzas and we enjoyed eating them for lunch. We were also able to sample some different ingredients including pepperoni, mozzarella, mushrooms and olives. The olives weren't a very popular choice! It was a great morning and the children have written wonderful recounts about our visit.
Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics
We have really enjoyed exploring the topic, ancient Egyptians. As part of our topic,we have been learning about Egyptian writing called hieroglyphics. We had great fun writing our names in hieroglyphics, some children even did their surnames!
Year 3 had a fantastic trip to the Liverpool Synagogue. The building was absolutely beautiful and full of lots of wonderful artefacts. It was really interesting to find out about the Jewish religion. Our favourite part of the trip was looking at the Torah scrolls. Ask us a question about Judaism, we now consider ourselves to be experts!
In History this half term, we are learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. To start our History topic, we explored significant periods and events. We were then able to put these key eras into chronological order. Following this, we were challenged to match images to their correct time period. We did an amazing job. We can’t wait to find out all about the Ancient Egyptians.
We have been exploring place value in our maths sessions. We are confident at building 3 digit numbers using concrete materials. We have also been working on writing numbers in both numerals and words. We are really enjoying maths and especially enjoy completing chilli challenges!
