Year 3 Blog - 29.4.22

Date: 29th Apr 2022 @ 1:41pm


Another sunny week has rolled by and the children are loving our topic, ‘How does your garden grow?’ This week we have looked at the functions of the 4 main parts of a plant; flower, leaves, stem and root. Over the next few weeks we will be designing our own non-fiction book covering pollination, photosynthesis, germination and much more. Focussing on not only the scientific elements but also the structure of a non-fiction text; heading, main heading, captions, labels …

In art and design we are working towards a paper and wire sculpture of a flower. This week we have been designing our own paper and experimenting with different materials and textures. Take a look at our creations below. Going forward, the children will have access to a variety of joining materials; masking tape, wire, string, parcel tape, glue. Maybe the children could spend some time in the garden, on the Hightown path, in the woods or down Range Lane this weekend as the wild flowers are beautifully in bloom.  

In ICT we are leaning how to use Gmail to compose and send messages. We will be adding attachments and photos next week.

Our PE days are now Thursday (cricket) AND Friday (dodgeball).

Please remember that we are off on our adventures to Ness Gardens on Thursday. Children need to come to school wearing their outdoor PE kits and wearing sun cream (fingers crossed) and a rain coat to cover all eventualities.

Have a wonderful 3-day weekend and we’ll see everyone on Tuesday
