We have learnt how to measure the perimeter of a 2D shape. We drew our own shapes on the playground using chalk and then measured the length of the sides using either a ruler, a meter stick or a trundle wheel. We then added these measurements up to find the perimeter. Some of us even completed the challenge of calculating the perimeter of the football pitch!

Can you guess who we came as?
The Great Brookfield Bake Off
Year 3 have certainly been very busy with our School Council competition! Check out our amazing bakes below!
Our Year 3 bubble have been having an amazing time at Forest School, learning all sorts of new skills and putting their problem-solving skills to use!
The children were asked to choose a "Creative Project" as part of their afternoon learning. All of the projects involved many Maths, Science and DT skills, as well as offering loads of enjoyment and fun! It looks like we have some Scientists and Engineers in the making!
To celebrate Christmas, we have a Christmas-themed Arts and Craft day. The children made their own angels and Christmas cards. They had a huge range of resources to choose from which made each and every creation unique. We'd like to say a huge thank you to the FOBs, who kindly gave each class some money to purchase the materials with. Merry Christmas!
The children have continued to have so much fun in our Crafty Critters club. We've made some beautiful Autumnal art and made salt dough Christmas decorations.
Topic - The Iron Age
We learnt about Druids in the Iron Age society and how important they were during these times. We used our Art and D&T skills to create our own Druid crowns.
Science - Forces and Magnets
We have been learning all about push and pull forces. We've investigated friction and how different surfaces effect the distance a car will travel. We've also learnt the importance of ensuring our tests are a fair, how to record our findings and how to draw conclusions using data.

The Stone Age
We've started the year learning about the Stone Age in our Topic sessions. The children have learnt about daily life during the Stone Age, including how they were hunter gatherers, what they used for shelter and how life progressed from the Paleolithic to the Neolithic era. We have even looked at authentic recipes from the time and made and tasted our own!
Our Topic learning has linked directly with our Science too, as we are learning all about rocks. We've learnt about how rocks are formed, different uses of rock and how to classify rocks according to their properties. We also had Mr Berry come in to teach us all about rocks! We used our scientific skills and had a brilliant day learning about the structure of the Earth, fossils, tectonic plates and volcanoes.
Have a look at our pictures below to see what we've been up to.
