We plant the seeds and help them grow

Summer Term Review

On Wednesday 6th June, we went to Windsor Castle, as part of our theme: Momentous Monarchs. In our theme lessons, we have been learning all about the history of the British Royal Family. At Windsor Castle, we had a guided tour around St. George's Chapel and stood in the exact same spot where Harry and Meghan had gotten married only a few weeks before. We then went into the 'state rooms' and saw the exact location of where the Windsor Castle fire started in 1992. We all has a brilliant day and will now be using our knowledge to write some brilliant pieces of work in English!

In Design and Technology this term, we have been looking at bread, it's history and designing a new innovative product. In this week's lesson, after lots of careful designing, the time had come to finally make our products! We worked in teams to mix and knead the dough, then divided it evenly between us, so we could create our own unique designs! We had lots of fun and redecorated the classroom with flour in the process! 

 

On Friday 18th May 2018, 3HF were lucky enough to be invited to attend the Year 3 multi skills tournament at Aylesbury Grammar School. Here we had the opportunity to work with Sports Leaders from Year 8 who coached us in completing various activities working on different sporting skills. We had lots of fun representing Haydon Abbey and made Miss Farrer very proud!

Year 3 D+T Project: The Great British Bread Off

 

In our Design and Technology lessons this term, we have been looking at bread, it's history and designing our own innovative products. Last week, we made salt dough to practice our designs with. We worked in partners, had great fun and made lots of mess!

Year 3 (3HF) Maths: Subtraction Investigation

 

In today’s Maths lesson, we were given the task of applying our knowledge of subtraction to investigate and answer a question: how tall would I be if I had no head? We were told we could use anything in the room to help us, and the only rule was: we had to use subtraction. We were put into partners and together, we set about figuring out how to answer this question. Lots of us used measuring tapes and measured how tall we were, then subtracted the length of our head using column subtraction. We shared our ideas, and were then given the task of investigating other questions, such as: how long would our foot be if we didn’t have toes!?
