Homework For This Week- See links below
Design a new front cover for 'The Twits' book.
Our Outdoor Learning topic this half term was 'Edible Garden'. We looked at, smelt and tasted a variety of different herbs. Using our senses helped us to describe the herbs in detail. We then dug holes in our class planters and planted the herbs.
Following on from the herb topic, we made pesto pasta. First we peeled, chopped and mashed garlic cloves. Next, we squeezed the juice from a lemon and added it to our garlic. We then added this mixture, along with a spoonful of pesto, to our cooked pasta. Finally, we tasted it. It was delicious!
We hope you enjoy our pictures below.
Edible Garden Outdoor Learning
Also part of our Outdoor Learning topic 'Edible Garden', we looked at how and where strawberries and tomatoes are grown. We made some observational drawings of the a strawberry and the inside of a tomato and then made strawberry and banana smoothies. We also chopped and tasted the tomatoes. What a fun day!!!
Due to the wind today we had to do this lesson indoors.
Check out our smoothie making skills below!
Making Strawberry and Banana Smoothies and Tasting Tomatoes
Year 3 visited the ‘Imagine That’ Discovery Centre. We made bath bombs, fridge magnets and slime. We also played in the role play shops. We hope you enjoy our pictures below.
Geography- Somewhere to Settle
This week we have been looking at settlements and what would make a good settlement.
We discussed this and decided that a good settlement would include:
- flat land for farming,
- high hills or mountains for protection from the weather or to see oncoming invaders,
- trees for building materials and also protection from the weather
- a fresh water supply- river or stream.
We designed our own settlements and labelled these features on our designs.
We hope you like them. 😊😁
