Well what a treat we've had today! Professor McGinty came to WHC to share his expert knowledge of Ancient Greece with us. In between the belly laughs we learned lots of facts about this fascinating time in history. We travelled back with him and looked at artefacts and images from the past. We are all now extremely excited about starting our new topic about the groups.



You can see a little taster of what we saw at the website below:

It is great to be back at school. We have talked about our summer holiday and created comic books to show what we did. We have been busy during this Every Child Matters week. We watched a clip of the Paralympics and discussed how inspirational these athletes are.

We then decoded some Braille. We have also researched our link school, Els Pins, in Spain on the laptops and created posters showing what we learned.

Y3 children are to be highly commended for their positive attitude and impeccable behaviour on what turned out to be one of the wettest days experienced last Monday. I think we have just about dried out by now. Well done to you all. Next week in class, we are planning to make some items of jewellery using recycled and junk materials. Each child took home a note about this. Could you please help them to find some suitable items to bring in on Monday July 9th. Beads, small shells, stones and bits of no longer wanted old jewellery would be really good. We are going to make pendants and brooches using these materials. The children have also spent a whole day with their new teacher for September this week, enabling them to have a taster of life to come in Y4.

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their trip last week to Cadbury World. They enjoyed learning about the Cadbury family, how they started the business and how they helped working people to achieve a better, healthier life. Of course they also enjoyed tasting the chocolate. It was a great day out.

We alos enjoyed a fabulous tennis session with a LTA trained coach. How I wish I had had that opportunity when I was a child!

Next week will be the Jump rope event. Please get practising! 3HS produced some fantastic poems about Rainy Nights and also Night visitors.

The children really shone today in both Y3 classes. Their talents have amazed us all. A huge variety of skills and talents were displayed this afternoon, from ballet, to karate, to swimming and to playing a musical instrument. Miss Greenwood and I are truly proud of all our pupils. Well done to all those who took part!

This week we have begun a topic about Plants in Science. This change in topic is due to the lack of sunshine that is needed for our topic about Light and Shadows! We will return to this topic during the second half of term. We have begun an investigation about the effect of watering on seedlings, looking at how quantity and frequency of watering might affect the growth of a plant!

Next week we will be starting our collage work. We will be creating a collage of a village scene in India. Could you please help your child to find some materials to do this task? Snippets of fabric, wallpaper, wrapping paper, buttons, straw, match sticks etc. would be very useful to us. The children need to bring these items into school on Monday May 14th. Many thanks.

Yesterday Miss Harper kindly gave them an introduction to India. The children'flew' to Delhi and upon touchdown were overwhelmed by the colours, smells and traffic noise of this very busy city. Miss Harper showed them articles she had broght back from her visit, photos, childrens' work and newspapers. Some children were dressed in Indian costume.

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Kenilworth Castle on Monday. The children displayed high levels of enthusiasm by asking and answering some amazing questions. They learnt about the different methods to defend and attack a castle. They also enjoyed learning about life in the castle and how food was prepared in the enormous kitchen. This week the children have also enjoyed showing their precious items during our Spirituality afternoon. These items promoted good discussion about the meaning of spirituality. We have also prepared for Mother's Day and hope all Mums enjoy a well-earned rest this coming Sunday.

This week year three have started to rehearse for our class assemblies next Friday 2nd March (3SG 9.15 and 3HS 2.45). We are looking forward to sharing what we have been learning with you!

We have also started our new literacy unit on ‘Adventure and Mystery Stories’ by analysing some examples.

In science we are learning about ‘Magnets and Springs’ this half term and have been thinking about what we already know about forces from KS1 and will soon be conducting investigations to find out more about their uses.

Teeth, teeth and more teeth!

This week year three have learnt about the damage that acid can cause to tooth enamel, with an exciting investigation. We learnt what the different parts of the tooth are and that the enamel is the outer layer that protects are tooth. We then investigated what causes this to be damaged by using a hard-boiled egg, a jar and some vinegar! We decided that the shell on the egg represented the enamel on our tooth as it protects the egg like the enamel protects our tooth. We then placed the egg in vinegar and predicted what would happen. We left the experiment for two days, although it was tricky not to peak! After this we removed the egg from the vinegar to find that the acid in the vinegar had caused the shell to weaken and fall off. We concluded that to stop this happening to our tooth enamel it was vital that we take care of our teeth and brush them regularly.

We have also been learning about teeth in our topic lessons. We created a timeline of dentistry through the ages and have been looking at how toothbrushes have changed. Did you know that the first toothbrushes were made by the Ancient Chinese from pigs?
