Welcome to Year 3. This is an exciting year for the children as they leave the Infant classes for the Juniors. They learn to become more independent and begin playing sports fixtures against other schools.
In Matterhorn class we use innovative and exciting strategies to become independent learners….
In Science we investigated ingredients in our food.
We love our sessions in Forest school, particularly making thing, sawing and lighting a fire.
This is Year 3 doing a STEM investigation which was to design and build a tower using spaghetti and marshmallows. This challenge links design and technology, mathematics and science as children use problem-solving strategies and knowledge of two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes to build their towers.
We enjoy reading with our friends in Year 6.
We visited Kent Life Museum and attended an a workshop on our topic of the Stone Age. We met a Stone Age man who gave us new names such as Puddle and Pebble! Year 3 found out how to ground grain, draw cave art, make Stone Age weapons and how archeologists find out about how people lived in the Stone Age.
