Painting eggs as part of our Easter work.

Comic Strip Writing

We read a story called 'The Stone Age Boy' in which a boy falls down a hole and ends up in the Stone Age. We wrote our own stories about falling down a hole and ending up in a different place. We wrote these in the style of a comic strip. 

What does our skeleton look like?

We thought about what is inside us to help us move and drew what we thought our skeleton looks like. Afterwards we compared our drawings to a model skeleton to see if we were correct!

Year 3 have been learning about how our body uses the food we eat. We learnt about different food groups and sorted food into proteins, carbohydrates, fats or vitamins and minerals. As part of this topic we designed a pizza that had something from each food group on it. We made these pizzas and took them home to cook and eat. Everyone seemed to enjoy their homework!

Here are some photos of us preparing the pizzas.

Sharing our stories with each other.

At the end of Term 4 we created stories and wrote them up into a book with pictures to decorate it.

Once finished we really enjoyed reading our stories to each other.

Sharing our diaries with Year 5

Year 5 wrote diaries as though they were the Highwayman and Year 3 wrote diaries as though they were Tutankhamun and Howard Carter. We got together on the field to listen to each others diaries, it was great fun.

Mummifying a tomato

As part of our topic on Ancient Egypt we mummified a tomato, we are going to observe it and see what happens over the next few weeks.
