This half term year 3 have been learning all about plants. We have looked at lots of different fruit and vegetables and decided which part of the plant we eat. We created our own plant collages using root vegetables, seeds, leaves and fruit to represent the plants parts. Take a look at our fantastic collages!
Rocks and Fossils
We learned lots of interesting facts about different types of rocks and also how fossils are formed. It was really exciting to make our own dinosaur fossils then excavated them. They were really effective! Take a look at these photos of our man made fossils.
In our science topic we looked at different materials to see if they were reflective. We had to choose materials whic would be best for santa to be seen in the dark on his sleigh. We designed a new coat for santa using a variety of materials.
We also investigated which materials were transparent, translucent and opaque.
