Our ‘Islands’ topic is well under way, and we have produced some amazing work linked to this! We have had many comments from other children and staff about the high quality of our two displays of puffin art and non-chronological reports. Two of the children in class were even lucky enough to visit Bempton Cliffs in the holidays to see puffins in the wild!

One of the areas we have been learning about in science is famous naturalists and conservationists. We really enjoyed finding out about the careers of Jane Goodall and David Attenborough, and you can see what we learned about them in our display outside the classroom.

In Year 3, we have been reading the book Five on a Treasure Island. Here is a picture of our display showing some of our amazing newspaper articles and diary entries!

In Science, we have conducted an experiment looking at what flowers need to successfully grow. We have all planted our own flower, put it in sunlight and made sure they have had enough water. As well as planting our own flower, we have placed a flower in darkness (away from light) and not watered another. We will be checking our flowers again in a week to see if they have grown.

 

We have had some excellent debates around what makes a person ‘great’ and who should be included as a ‘Great Briton’. The class voted Alexander Fleming in first place, followed by Winston Churchill in second and Stephen Hawking in third. Thanks again to everyone who contributed suggestions for us!

In year 3 we have conducted an experiment looking at how plants take up water. Even though our experiment didn’t go as planned, we still enjoyed carrying it out! Below are some of our pictures from the experiment.
