Time to experiment Tuesday!

Good morning Year 3,

I hope you enjoyed your science themed activities yesterday. Today is the day of the Great Science Share 2020, so keep your eyes on the blog as Mrs Moseley and Miss Clarke are going to be sharing some fantastic science activities for you to try!

To start your day of Science fun we would like you listen to a story. Here is a fantastic story all about the journey of a seed. It is called The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle.

Did you like the story? What was your favourite part? What different modes of seed dispersal were mentioned in this book?

Next we would like you to practice your handwriting on Letterjoin.

For today’s math activity we are going to practice counting in 4’s, 8’s, 50’s and 100’s.

Here is a video to remind you of those tricky 8’s!


The answers will be posted at 3pm.

Today we are looking at plants. Plants are amazing, they provide us with oxygen and they are beautiful to look at!

After your maths challenge we would like you to research the different parts of a flower and their different purposes. Each part of a plant has a different job which helps the plant to survive. Look at this Powerpoint about the different parts of a plant:

Here is a video to help:

Can you use that information to create a diagram of a plant and label it? Extra challenge- Can you also label the parts of the plant with a description of what they do? Here a few WAGOLLs to give you some ideas.

This afternoon we are going to take part in The Great Science Share 2020! Keep on eye out on the blog as Mrs Moseley and Miss Clarke are going to sharing some fantatsic science acitivites for you to try! Please send pictures of your brilliant science work to year3@bowkervale.manchester.sch.uk , so we can share them as part of the Great Science Share 2020!

Finally, on your daily walk we would like to have a look around and see how many different plants you spot. You could also have a go at identifying the plant. Here are some flowers from my backgarden, I wonder if anybody can help me identify what plants they are?

We hope you have a fantastic day of learning and fun!

Miss Smith and Mrs Kershaw
