Year 3 Woodpecker Local History

12 June 2016 Written by

We started the week with an assembly where each class was given a challenge. Our challenge was to find out what was in the mystery pot and investigate why it was significant to Bristol's history. 

We worked out that there were cocoa beans in the pot and using different sources we found out how they had arrived in the UK. Using this information, we created a freeze frame.

Next, we looked at pictorial sources of chocolate houses and found out that in the past, rich people would have drank chocolate drinks in these. They are similar to cafes that we have today.

We also looked at sources to reconstruct life in Fry's factory. We found out that it was a nice place to work because they were allowed to eat chocolate and they were given houses which were surrounded by fields. We decided that it would be a nice place to live because their was lots of space to play and the children could go to school.

We finished off with a visit to the M Shed where we pretended to be a factory worker, making chocolates and looking at historical artefacts to identify how the chocolates were made. We had an amazing time.


Please watch our video to learn more about our challenge.

What an exciting week!

In maths we are learning about right angles. We used a right angle checker to check if shapes had right angles, acute angles or obtuse angles. We found out that acute angles are smaller than a right angle and obtuse angles are bigger than right angles.

In literacy we wrote diamante poems which are in the shape of a diamond and have nouns, verbs and adjectives in them to describe things.

In topic this week we learned about the different jobs of the plants and how they grow.

We had our first philosophy lesson this week where we played a new game called cats and dogs which was really fun. We also continued with our weekly grammar and spellings sessions where we learned new words and how to spell and sound them out.

Swimming was fun. We learned new swimming skills and had our first proper lesson after being split into groups last week.

We also went on a fantastic trip to Bristol Zoo. Read our blog to find out more.

We're going to the zoo, the zoo, the zoo...

29 February 2016 Written by

We went on an exciting trip to the Bristol Zoo where we saw lions, boas, monkeys, flamingos and more. Further to this, we went to the rainforest workshop where we ordered and found out about the layers of the rainforest (forest floor, understory, canopy, emergent). After this, the lady let us hold some beetles, we felt a snake and also touched an animal that was like a hedgehog. Then we had different activities to do, like matching gorilla noses, smelling pots to see what grows in the rainforest and finding out about the most dangerous animal to humans. We were shocked to find out that it was the mosquito. After this, we had lunch and went to play in the play area. We walked around the zoo in groups and saw all of the different animals. We loved seeing them, especially a funny seal fight.
