Welcome to Year 3’s Class Page
We had a curriculum day based around the theme of London. The children were set homework about London. We were amazed with the brilliant creations which came into school!
CAFOD visits Year 3
We had Isabella and Rosemary from CAFOD come in and talk to us. CAFOD an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. They reach out to people living in poverty with practical help, whatever their religion or culture. Through their global Church network, one of the largest in the world, they have the potential to reach everyone. They campaign for global justice, so that every woman, man and child can live a full and dignified life.
Year 3 Outdoor Science
As part of our science
unit on forces and magnets we visited the park to find out more about forces. We had great fun at the same time as discussing whether we were using a pull or a push. We thought about how the different equipment worked and also discussed our muscles and how they were working to help us move the equipment or enabling us to travel across the equipment. We wish all our lessons could be at the park!
We were very fortunate to have a visit from Professor Johnny, from Bristol University who amazed us with awe and wonder experiments but at the same time extended our scientific understanding about gases, materials and changes. There were lots of bangs, smoke and bubbling, colour changing liquids. He was very impressed with our questions and answers to his questions and thinks we will be the scientists of the future! Many thanks to the Primary Science Teaching Trust who organised the visit for all the Christchurch Science Cluster schools. Some of the children’s comments were:
‘Totally awesome!’ Y3
‘I cant believe how much I learnt in an hour.’Y6
‘Can he come again?’Y2
