Scrummy Fruit Salad

As part of our Scrumdidlyumptious topic this Spring term in Year 3, we had the very enjoyable and hands on task of creating a delicious fruit salad. The children in Year 3 worked in small groups with the assistance of Mrs Bansil and Mrs Begum-Wills to prepare the fruit salad. They had to peel, core and chop various fruits to prepare the final ensemble which they then devoured! Children then had to recall the process of creating the fruit salad and sequence and write a set of instructions based on it.

Year 3 have been building their own cars in D.T. Once built they were used to investigate the effects of friction. to do this the children rolled the cars down a series of different ramps which each had a different surface texture. Sponge, wood, sandpaper and carpet. Before beginning their investigation they made a series of predictions about which surfaces would create the most friction. Then the fun began !
Take a look at the pictures below:

Year 3 have been learning about different types of rocks. Granular, crystallised and fossilised. We looked at the formation of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. The children were given an assortment of rocks and were asked to group the rocks according to their appearance. We then sorted the rocks correctly and the children were excited to see if their predictions were correct.

On a rather wet afternoon this week, Year 3 took part in their first archaeological dig in response to a letter they had received from Ida Moore, stating there was a rumour that Beaker Pottery (2500 years old) had been found at Welford Primary School.  The children excavated a small quadrant of the woods; sifting and sieving for any fragments of pottery.    Below is evidence of their dig and any associated finds! Well done Year 3!
