• Year 3 Munch and Crunch 2

Autumn 1

This half term our topic is 'Munch and Crunch'. Click on the link to our Topic letter to see what we have been learning.

As part of our DT food project we designed healthy pasta salads. We made sure we used ingredients from each of the sections in the healthy balanced food plate. We visited Asda to buy our ingredients and we were given the opportunity to use the tills to pay for the food. We then made our pasta salads and thoroughly enjoyed sharing them with our family. In science we have been learning all about teeth. We investigated which drinks contained the most amount of sugar and we looked at the effects this can have on our teeth.

In our English sessions we have looked at the text 'The Rascally Cake' by Jeanne Willis and Korky Paul. We have explored a range of writing genres including character and setting descriptions and writing instructions.The children have developed their use of powerful adjectives, prepositions and generalisers to describe the character of Rufus. They also learnt some new verb openers and exciting onomatopoeia vocabulary to describe a science laboratory.
