WC 14th October; In Science this week, we have been learning about the human skeleton. We have learnt the name of bones and understand how our bones are connected. We enjoyed creating our own moving skeletons.

WC 6th October: Currently in Science we’re learning all about humans and animals. We’ve been comparing their skeletons and exploring the way they’ve adapted features suited to help them to thrive in their particular environments. We ever designed our own weird and wonderful creatures with features that would make them perfect for survival in our chosen surroundings.

WC 9th September: What better way to start the term than with a Stone Age day! The children had a great day learning about what life was like during the Stone Age, creating their own cave paintings and even modelling their own bone jewellery using salt dough.

WC 23rd September: On Monday we spent the day at Truro museum where we learnt about changes from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We made our own Stone Age pots using clay and had the opportunity to explore artefacts including axes, spears, swords and scythes. The staff at the museum were so impressed by the children and commented on their excellent thinking, questioning and outstanding behaviour – well done Year 3!

Year 3 (2018/2019)

What's been happening in Year 3?

Ancient Egypt

This week in Year 3 the children have continued their learning about life in ancient Egypt! The children enjoyed learning about the different Egyptian Gods and particulatly enjoyed creating their own ancient Egyptian art by turning themselves into pharaohs. Well done Year 3! 

Here are a few examples of their amazing posters.

St Piran's Day

This week Year 3 have been getting ready for St. Piran's day by listening to traditional Cornish tales including the story of The Moushole Cat. Inspired by the story, we then created our own mixed-media Cornish stormy seas, using watercolours, coloured card and pencil.

Science Investigations

“In Science this week we have been investigating the effect of different materials on the way an object slides down a ramp. The materials we investigated were plastic, mesh, greaseproof paper, cotton and corrugated card. To keep the test fair we kept the object (counter) and ramp the same but changed the material each time. We made predictions as to which material the object would move most and least easily on. We found out that the object moved most easily on the plastic material as it is smooth and least easily on the cotton material because it is textured.”

Year 3 Dancing lessons

What an exciting week we’ve had this week in Year 3. On Monday we were lucky enough to have dance coaching from professional choreographer and dancer Grace Murdoch. She taught us how to synchronise and sequence moves to create our own performance pieces and how to support each other in balance and movement.

Our Assembly 28/3/19

First of all Year 3 would like to say a massive thank you to all those parents who came to support us in our class assembly this week. We really enjoyed reflecting on and sharing all our wonderful learning this term with you. For many, the Egyptian masks were a favourite part of our ‘Life in Ancient Egypt’ unit and this week we put the final touches on our Egyptian masks. The last few layers of paper mache, base coats, block colours and final black and gold details all bring the final piece to life.

Walk like an Eygptian

‘The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the ancient Egypt and on Friday came to school dressed as an ancient Egyptian. Some even came wrapped as mummies – great effort . The children enjoyed playing the ukulele in costume as well as creating silhouette art and their own golden, jewel encrusted collars.’

Year 3's Residential Trip to Eden

We had a wonderful residential at The Eden Project.  During our first day the children enjoyed learning how to make fire, baking their own bread on the fire, making potions and designing and painting team flags. Most of all the children loved sharing pods with their friends. On our second day, we explored the biomes – it got so warm in the Mediterranean biome that we all tried to squeeze into the cool room! The children’s behaviour was outstanding and members of the public even complemented them on it! A fantastic time was had by all.

Sports Day

In the final week of term we had our annual Treloweth Sports Day and what a fantastic day it was. All the children gave 110% and we were very proud of all their efforts and successes. Year 3 would like to say a big thank you to Mr Shaughnessy for organising such a fantastic event and a massive thanks also to everyone who could attend and show their support. We definitely all deserved a rest after that! Hip-hip-hooray for half term!

This week we’ve been studying seed dispersal in our science lessons. We learned about the numerous methods seed utilise to move away from their ‘parent plant’ and find new space to grow; such as water, wind, explosion, carried by an animal or eaten by an animal. We applied our knowledge of these strategies in our DT lessons to design, make and evaluate our own ‘alien seeds’. We carefully considered how the structure of the seed would vary depending on the method of dispersal we had chosen. Look closely at our seed structures, can you guess how we designed them to be dispersed?

A visit from Morrisons 

On Tuesday afternoon, two lovely ladies from Morrisons visited our school. They read us the story of The Hungry Caterpillar and then we tasted some different foods from the story. We tasted; sausages, salami, strawberries, oranges, watermelon and chocolate cake – YUM! We had a great time – thank you Morrisons!

Visit from a GB Athlete

We’ve been very lucky to have not one, but two special visitors this week! In addition to our guests from Morrison’s we’ve also had a visit from British athlete Molly Caudery. She’s a pole vaulter who can jump as high as a double decker bus! She did a full workout with us and when we’d caught our breathe back, she also made time to answer all our questions and show us her amazing medals.
