Y3 Museum of Science and Industry

Y3 Science Week

During science week we carried out lots of different scientific investigations:

Chromatography, splitting colours of felt tip pens to see which colours they are made of.

Testing everyday items such as milk and lemon juice to find out if they are acid or alkali by using cabbage water.

Sorting magnetic and non magnetic materials after testing them.

Building circuits which included buzzers and motors during an electricity day.

Y3 Scratch Junior

In computing lessons Year 3 have been creating a game for Year 1 to play.  To begin with a focus group visited Year 1 to find out what they were learning, what interests them and what sort of game they would like.  Year 3 then created games using Scratch Junior.  When the games were completed we shared them with Year 1.  They loved them!

Y3 Harry Potter Day

Year 3 have had another brilliant day. We spent the day at ‘Hogwart’s School’.  We designed spells during Charms Class, completed shopping for spells investigations during Arithmancy and played Quidditch in P.E.  We also made wands during ‘Spells’ class, created periscopes during Muggle Magic lessons and made Hogwart’s shields during History of Magic.

Y3 Investigating Number

Year 3 have been exploring our Maths equipment. We designed lots of investigations and used the equipment to create lots of interesting Maths in our class.  We used Clever Sticks to create a line 32m long!  There was lots of estimating, measuring and excitement!!!
