Year 3 were very lucky today to have the whole afternoon working with Mr Carlton; building structures from Lego and then using the Ipads to program the buggies to do different things.

What a fantastic morning Year 3 had today! They created 'poo'! They made their way through the digestive tract; from mouth to rectum, whilst also describing every step of the journey with amazing vocabulary and technical language. Have a look at the pictures below and the videos, which show just how knowledgeable they are of the digestive system in the human body!

This week, Year 3 learnt all about calories in food. They looked at the recommended amount children aged 7 and 8 should consume in a day. Then they completed different exercises to see how long they would have to exercise at high intensity to burn off some food items. This really helped them to understand the importance of a healthy balanced diet.

Year 3 have continued their journey through the digestive system this afternoon and have really impressed the adults in the class with their ability to pick up knowledge and technical language to explain how the different parts work.

This week with JB sports, Year 3 looked at a healthy balanced diet again and this time really considered what group different foods would fall into.

This afternoon in Year 3, the children looked at saliva and the role it plays in the digestive system. The children had to set up an experiment, where they put samples of food on a paper plate; one sample being coated in water and the other in saliva. They then had to look at the changes that happened with the food samples and think about why the saliva broke the food down more than just the water.
