The last week of term has been STEM Week where year 3 have looked at Changing Colour as our focus. Here are a selection of videos of some of the experiments we completed.

Autumn Term

 

Our topic this term was the Stone Age vs The Ancient Egyptians. 

 

Children completed various pieces of work around this topic and have created this display board.

 

In English we also completed a unit of work on George's Marvellous Medicine for Roald Dahl week. We used their work to create two class displays.

Spring Term

 

This term our topic is Ancient Greece.

 

In maths we have looked at 2D and 3D shapes and how they are seen in Ancient Greek temples. Children recreated this using straws for their own version of a Greek Temple.

Images of the Greek Temples we made during our maths lessons. Photos of us all dressed up for our fabulous Ancient Greek workshop where we re-enacted the battle of Sparta and competed in the Ancient Greek Olympics.
