Year 3 blog

In Year 3, we have just completed our topic on Superheroes. During the Superheroes topic, we created our own superheroes and decided what their special power would be.

Next week we are starting our brand new topic ’Around the World in 80 days.’ In this topic, we will be looking at world maps, countries and continents. We will be planning a route around the world on a map and deciding which continents and countries we would like to visit and why. As well as looking at world maps, we are also going to be focusing our learning around festivals and traditions around the world.

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.


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.
