In Year 3, we’ve been exploring the human body. This week, we learned about muscles and tendons before seeing them in action. We participated in different activities that worked each of the muscles around our bodies, from biceps to quadriceps.
Following that, we set up for and investigated how different body parts work. We explored four different investigation questions: • Do people with longer legs run faster? • Can shorter people do a forward roll faster? • Do people with smaller feet balance better? • Can people with longer arms throw further?
This half term Year 3 will be exploring free-standing structures in DT. This week Ruby class created a mood board of their ideas including equipment, colours and other features that they would like to see in their idea playground.
This week Ruby class have been learning about animal classification and the purpose of a skeletal system. We found out that animals including humans have endothermic, exothermic or hydrostatic skeletons and that animals can be classified as invertebrates or vertebrates.
The children recreated a human skeleton to demonstrate their understanding.
Today in English, we created a questionnaire to fill in about ourselves ready to begin writing our own autobiographies next week! We will use the information we research, as well as all of the exciting new language features we have learned this week for our exciting project.
Please make sure to bring it back on Monday. If you need another copy of your questionnaire, please see below for Ruby, Onyx and Jet’s class questionnaires.
