This term we have lots of exciting learning planned: we will be gaining an understanding of life under the sea with our Blue Abyss topic in which we will be researching sea creatures to write a non-chronological report as well as writing under the sea themes poetry.
We will be learning multiplication and division during our maths lessons as well as recapping addition and subtraction.
In RE we will be learning about creation and identifying what Christians learn from the creations story and in science our topic this term in electricity.
In class we are currently reading The Ice Monster, written by David Walliams
The children are really showing a great interest in this text. They have used the storyline to create their own adventure story set in Victorian London basing their own characters on Elsie.
Year 3 are enjoying this story so much that we are using this as a focus for writing a diary entry. The children are writing as though they are a child in Victorian London.
As part of our science topic, Animals including humans, year 3 have looked at how drinks can effect our tooth enamel. To do this we placed eggs in water, cola, orange juice, apple juice and milk. The shell of an egg is similar to our enamel so will show an accurate result.
The children made a prediction of what would happen before we began our observations. Most thought that the water would be the best and cola the most harmful for our teeth.
