Pollination And The Importance Of Bees
Year 3 learnt all about flowering plants. We roll played the process of pollination. We learnt new terms such as anther, stamen, stigma and filament. See the photos below.
On Tuesday 5th February, we had a fascinating visit from Mr Egypt, an
archaeologist. Year 3 took part in a number of exciting activities including, Egyptian dancing, dressing up as a mummy, handling real life artefacts and learning about hieroglyphics and Egyptian maths.
Making Egyptian Pots Using Clay
On 19th November, Year 3 went on a brilliant visit to Cadbury World. A member of the Cadbury team delivered a talk and we learnt about where chocolate comes from, how it is made and how chocolate is marketed in different packaging. Some of us even dressed up as a factory worker. We enjoyed tasting warm chocolate and the 4D cinema was a great experience.
