Welcome to the Year 3 Beech Class Page
What an exciting first term we've had already!
Our topic 'Pole to Pole' gave us the opportunity to go exploring in Antarctica, with Sir Earnest Shackleton. It also gave us the chance to look at ordinance survey maps, in Geography, which we studied in great detail.
In Science, we investigated the effects of magnets and how we use magnets in the real world. We had a great time looking at magnetic forces using magnets and iron filings!
We ended the term by designing and building igloos in Design and Technology. What a great way to finish the first term!
Here are some photos of the amazing work we did:
This term, not only do we have the Christmas festivities to look forward to, but we are studying 'The Romans'.
As part of our work, we will be looking at Roman artifacts, visiting Colchester Castle and participating in a Roman Day workshop. This is going to be a fun-filled seven weeks and we look forward to posting photos of all the activities we do, later this term.
