To launch our topic ‘A Journey Back in Time’, Year 3 enjoyed a carousel of activities throughout the day. In the dark, they created their own cave art on sand paper using light from LED tea lights to give the effect of a flickering fire. The children used chalk and charcoal (resources used in […]
As a part of our DT this term, we have been learning about the importance of bridges and how they are constructed. Year 3 had a fantastic trip to the Tamar Bridge to embed what we have learnt during our DT lessons. What better way to travel to the bridge than by the river it […]
Year 3 had a great day creating Christmas crafts on Wednesday 18th December. Each class got to make origami bags with Oreos decorated as Xmas puddings in, snowflakes, Christmas snow globes to hang on their trees and marshmallow Christmas Trees.
This term, we researched different bridge types and how they were built. We explored the strengths of different shapes to find which shapes are the strongest. We discovered the triangle is the strongest shape to build with. We designed our own bridges in teams, made prototypes, edited our designs and then built our bridges to […]
This term, we have been learning all about bridges. We became teams of engineers and worked collaboratively to design, make, test and evaluate our own bridges out of lollipop sticks.
Today, we worked in pairs to complete a jigsaw of the four countries which make up the United Kingdom. Next, we coloured the flags for the United Kingdom, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland then added these to our maps too. Finally, we discovered the capital cities for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Team Kilmar have been blown away by the quality of Home Learning created by the class! What an amazing effort! I cannot wait to see what they achieve at home for the next topic. Well done, Kilmar!
The children in Year 3 completed their ‘Show Stopper’ for our learning in Geography this term. They were expected to create a map of the UK and then label it with its country name, flag and Patron Saint. Here are some photos of their final pieces:
Year 3 had a DT Day yesterday. They spent the day building bridges from lollipop sticks. They had previously studied the different designs of bridges and made a prototype with straws. This was a brilliant way to consolidate our learning about the structures of bridges. I think all would agree that they did a fantastic […]

We found events from Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s life and made a timeline from them. We learned about bridges […]
