This afternoon, Year Three have been thinking about feelings that they experience as well as how they might deal with their own feelings.  The children also spoke about how they might recognise good or not so good feelings in others.  The children then listened to the story, ‘The Tear Thief’ by Carol Ann Duffy ready for the next lesson.


In PSHCEe this week, we had a discussion about things that young children find difficult. The children thought of many things like staying healthy, learning to read, making friends etc.

The children had a discussion with their partner and decided to go with, ‘How to be healthy.’ and ‘How to help children speak English.’

The children worked with their shoulder partner to research their recommendations and to make a pic collage to share their work.


How do plants to grow?

Year Three are starting their new Science topic this half term.  These are the things that they would like to learn:


“I want to know how the petals grow.”


“Can plants grow on the moon?”


“I want to know whether plants can live as long as us.”


“I want to know how tree trunks go hard.”


“I want to know how seeds form.”

Mohamed Farah

“I want to know how plants get out of the soil.’


“How do petals get their colour?”


“I want to know if seeds have food in them.”


“Do plants grow in the ocean?”


“I want to know whether plants can get a cold like us!”


“How do plants survive in the cold weather?”


“How do fruit and vegetables grow on plants?”


“How do plants catch the sun?”


“How do a trees’ roots come outside of the soil?”


“Can plants grow in a water tank?”


“Do plants grow in sand?”

Black History Day

Year Three learned about Mary Seacole as part of Black History day.  Using pictures of Mary Seacole, the children worked with their partners and took part in a rally robin activity to name some professions that they thought Mary Seacole might have belonged to.

Buraidah thought she might have been a doctor, Boshra thought she might have been a president and Adam thought she might have been a shop keeper.

After this, the children read information about Mary Seacole and worked out how long ago she must have lived when looking at dates. The children then fit important moments in her life onto a timeline.
