Year 3 knew that plants need water to grow, but how plants 'drink' their water proved a bit of a mystery.

Today in History, we investigated Victorian jobs in Leeds. We mainly focused on factory workers, chimney sweeps and cotton workers. First, we predicted what we thought the jobs were, how many hours they would work, what the conditions were like and how much they got paid. After, we watched a variety of videos explaining what life was actually like for children who worked in factories, cotton mills and as a chimney sweep. We were very shocked. After, we discussed how that is different to now and how our British Values would prevent children working now. Finally, we had the chance to hot-seat as these workers and ask a variety of questions about their life.

In Science, we investigated why we have shadows and how they change. We created opaque shapes and tested our theories.

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the amazing Ancient Egyptian Empire. We would love for you to come and watch our class assembly.
On Thursday 25th April at 9:00am, Year 3 Jays and Wrens will be presenting everything they have learnt about the Ancient Egyptians.
Please do come along!
Year 3 have been investigating shadow and light to end their science unit.
The pupils made tinfoil figures to experiment with shadows. They learnt that shadows are created when an object blocks a light source. The children also observed that the shape and position of the shadow changed when the direction of the light source was changed.
Year 3 have been learning how to add the -ation suffix onto root words in SPaG. Ask your child what the suffix means and if there are any special rules to remember when you add -ation onto the end of a word like 'create' or 'relax'.
This week, Year 3 pupils have the same spelling words for each group. Our spelling tests will be on Friday. Can your child write a sentence using each of the -ation spelling words?

Check out the TT Rockstar Battle of the Band winners - terrific times tables and marvellous maths work happening from pupils across KS2.
A new battle has started... will you help your class win over the half-term holiday?
Earn as many points as you can by answering times table questions correctly.
The new challenge starts now and lasts until the first day back at school.
Which class will earn the most points to win the prize?
In either paper form or online, Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice. Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised every third week or so.
