These basic skills are essential as your child progresses through the juniors  and 10 minutes  regularly on these apps will really help them to improve! Children will be given login and password details in school to use at home.

Health and Movement
Discovering the amounts of sugar in our favourite drinks.
We made predictions, then tested out our ideas, then we made some amazing discoveries that have changed our thinking about what we drink and how often we should drink it.
What we thought we knew about our skeletons!

As part of our topic on keeping health, Year 3 looked at the perils of smoking today. We explored the contents of a cigarette and what they do to us over time if we keep smoking them. We also discussed the importance of resisting peer pressure and how doing the right thing can sometimes not be the easy thing to do but we must try to do it anyway.

Worship
This week our them has been 'Promises'. We have explored many of the promises God made to us throughout The Holy Bible but were struck by this passage:

 

 'For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.'

Psalm 100:5
 
It reminds us that God is always near no matter how much time has passed and that he will never break his promise of love to us all.
 
We ended our worship by making a promise of our own which many shared with the class.

Geography
In Geography we have been learning all about Malopolska - a region in the south of Poland. We discovered that Krakow has had a problem with smog in the past. We have created some posters in protest over that smog!
During our topic on Malopolska, we explored the best ways to travel to Poland, the city of Krakow, urban and rural areas and what we would do as tourists. Have a look at a selection of photos of us in action.
We also explored the idea of inviting Polish tourists to Liverpool and created some short videos of our own to promote our great city and entice people to visit us here.
Mathematics
This week in class we have been exploring place value with concrete materials and that has helped us to order large numbers.
 
 
History

Our Autumn topic has been about early Britons and we have explored life from The Stone Age to the beginning of the Iron Age as well as compared it with the life we live today.
In French we have been learning about colours, days of the week, months of the year, counting and naming different parts of the body.
Philosophy
As part of our new geography topic, we explored two landscapes showing Poland and the UK. we asked ourselves how they were similar and different. This led to our philosophical question. 
'How are we all the same but different?'
