Year 3 have been making bird food cake. We have hung them up in the playground in the hope that some birds might enjoy them. Some of us thought it smelt delicious and some thought it smelt disgusting.
For RE we have begun learning about the meaning behind some religious festivals. We thought about how light is a symbol in many religions and made some beautiful lanterns to brighten up the classroom.
We found out how the planets moved around the Sun and tried to emulate this with our own bodies as the planets. This helped us to answer the question about why we have night and day and also why we have seasonal change. Some of us remembered the Earth is tilted on its axis and you can see this in the pictures.

 

 

In Year 3 we learnt about sugar hidden in drinks. We played lots of fun games that required co-operation, speed.
We were presented with our new bibles by Reverend Pask. We are enjoying reading them and looking at the colourful pictures.
We have made some lovely Roman jewellery in our topic lessons and some great mosaics too.
In English we have been creating poems about rocks, pebbles and dragonflies. We have learnt about similes and metaphors and tried using these in our work too.

 

Year 3 had a great time with Year 4, at the Dewa museum in Chester. We marched around Chester to the amphitheatre and the old bathhouse where we performed battle cries and formed a testudo.
