Our foundation subjects for this half term are; history, DT, RE, ICT and PSHE.
Week 5 - Topic and Science
In Science, we investigated which soils allowed water to pass through the quickest. We found that sandy soil allowed it to pass through in 3 seconds! In Topic, we had facts about Stone Age food around the classroom which we used to create posters about the food they ate, how they hunted and how they cooked their food!
Week 4 - Topic, DT and Science
What a busy week Year 3 have had! In Topic this week, we looked at Stone Age homes and had a go at creating our own. In DT, we evaluated our ice lollies and suggested ways of improving them. In Science, we looked at the 3 different types of rocks; sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. Then we created our own sedimentary rock using dark, milk and white chocolate. This showed us the different layers that you would find in sedimentary rock.
Week 3 - DT
This week in DT we have designed and made our own ice lollies. The children tasted a range of different flavoured fruit juices and experimented mixing some of these flavours together in order to create their own unique ice lolly.
After our stone age visit, we wrote a recount of our day. Then in our second lesson we looked at just how long ago the Stone Age was. We used a toilet roll where each sheet represented 30 years.
