We have had a very exciting week in Year 3 and enjoyed the science week theme; ‘underground.’
Our week started with a trip to Affinity Water, where we learnt how rain water is treated and distributed to millions of households around the UK. We also may pledges to help save water by turning taps off when brushing our teeth and taking short showers.
Later in the week we investigated what causes volcanoes and the forces that occur during an eruption. We used our map skills to locate active volcanoes across the world and built a volcano to erupt!
We were inspired by the book written by Charlotte Gullian and Yuval Zommer,called The Street Beneath My Feet, to create collages of what we might find just below the pavement. Thank you for your help with this parents. I’m sure you will agree that their posters came out really well.
I was extremely pleased with how well the class read, danced and sang in the St Patrick’s Day assembly this morning – well done Y3.
Home Learning this week;
Please log on to www.spellingframe.co.uk and select the Year 3 and 4 spellings. Then scroll down to unit 19 and practise the ‘ei’ words. The children are familiar with this website.
The children also need to learn the words to all the Stations of The Cross songs that were sent home earlier this week.
Have a lovely weekend,
