Year 3 Trip to Marwell Zoo
On Tuesday 9th October Year 3 had an amazing visit to Marwell Zoo as part of our 'extreme habitats' topic. We focussed on seeing animals from these regions but also saw many others. The day was a wonderful success and the children learnt a great deal. Thank you to the parent helpers who supported us.
Farah class have been learning about the circulatory system in science, sending oxygenated and deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs and around the body. They pretended to be blood cells going to the lungs to collect oxygen and then going back to the heart to be pumped around the body. This helped the children understand that this is a continuous process and how hard our heart works.
RE - Harvest
As part of this week's RE topic, Harvest, the children in Farah class had to work in pairs or small groups to learn about how different religions celebrate harvest or give thanks for food. They had to design a poster and present their information to their classmates. This was a good opportunity to stand up and speak in front of other people and the audience had to demonstrate respect by listening carefully.
Year 3 have learnt about their famous sports people after who their class is named; Mo Farah, Steve Redgrave and Kelly Holmes. Each class found out some facts about their sports person and created some artwork. Please have a look at the displays for each class and ask your child about their class name.
