Year 3

Stone Age Pottery

Did you know that Stone Age people invented pottery? We have been trying to make our very own pinch pots in the style of Stone Age people.

First, we make long, thin sausage shapes and then joined them together in a coil shape. We were very gentle, making sure that they did not break.  After that, we used our fingers to smooth the inside and outside of the pots and pinch the coils together.

Finally, we made a pattern on the outside of the pot and left them to harden.

 

We Will Not Forget

Today we started remembering the soldiers who have fought for us. We thought about solders from days gone by and of soldiers of today. We tried on different parts of their uniform and carefully considered how difficult their job can be.

              

After that we made some beautiful poppies to help us remember.

Italian Club make pizza!

Italian Club make pizza!

Mrs Innerdale runs an Italian after school club every Tuesday evening. Tonight the children have been able to have a go at making their very own Italia food – pizzas with the help of Mrs Humble. The children all enjoyed this activity and were very pleased to be able to take their pizzas home for tea! Let’s hope they tasted as nice ad they looked!

What does that add up to?

We have been really busy in Year 3 using the Base 10 equipment and place value counters. We’ve been learning how to use them to help us with column addition.

We mustn’t forget to put the digits in the right column!  And what happens if it adds up to more than 10?
