In Design Technology we learnt how to make moving mechanical systems involving linkages and levers. The posters we created are amazing!!!
In Science we explored forces and magnets.
What the Romans Did for Us
This topic has been very exciting for Year 3. We had an excellent day with the Roman Visitor who came in to demonstrate to us what life in Roman Britain was like. (See the pictures below.)
In our science topic we learnt about skeletons and muscles. Below are some examples of the skeletons we created out of cotton buds.
Rock and Roll
Throughout this topic we learnt about life in the Stone Age. We created our own Cave Paintings based on historical examples that we had studied.
In Science we learnt about the different types of rocks and soils.
Below are some images of our Cave Paintings and one of our science lessons exploring the structure of the three different rock types.

Below are some images of us learning the technique and our finished products.
There's No Place Like Home
During this topic about our local area and linking this to local history - the Accrington Pals and their part during World War 1.
On Tuesday the 6th November we went on a trip to Gawthorpe Hall to learn about different aspects of World War 1. We made postcards, wrote a poem and learnt what life was like for a soldier.
