BREAD TASTING - We tasted Wheaten bread, Bagels, Soda Bread, Baguettte and Naan Bread in class.  We chose our favourite type of bread and then we recorded this information in a table and block graph.  In pairs we worked together to answer Maths problems from our graph.

In the computer suite we are designing a Power Point about our favourite type of bread.

W.A.U. & Numeracy  - Our Environment

Today Year 3A were learning about different types of MATERIALS e.g. metal, plastic, wood, paper and glass. 


In groups, the children sorted their classroom rubbish depending on the type of material and then displayed it in a 3D graph.  We found that we were throwing out too much paper and plastic.  The children were able to identify the most  and least popular type of material and also find the difference between both.


Year 3A are now going to reuse their paper and write on the back and also any packaging made from paper they are going to keep it for making models of our town.  We are going to continue to put our fruit peelings in our orange bucket so that we can make compost.


Have a look to see what we have been doing.
