Portals to the past

This half term, Year 3 have been learning about healthy eating and the human body. We have learned about the skeleton and muscles and why they are important. We learned about the heart, its function in the body and conducted an investigation into what effects heart rate.

As part of our science work, we also got the chance to investigate a sheep’s heart so that they could identify some of the features we had been learning about.

We learned about how to keep ourselves healthy through exercise and a balanced diet. Children enjoyed tasting and evaluating soup before making some healthy soup as part of a balanced meal and writing recipes.

Our half term 2 theme was ‘Light’. In Year 3 pupils enjoyed participating in different workshops where they were involved in creating and exploring shadows.

We also learned about Guy Fawkes and the gun powder plot. Children learned a lot about the events and firework safety. Children explored this further in their literacy work where they wrote poems using onomatopoeia.
