In Year 3 Science, the children continue to build on their knowledge of animals, including humans and plants. The children are introduced to Forces and Magnets, Light and shadows and Rocks, Fossils and Soil.
The children decided how to group the rocks based on their properties using their scientific vocabulary.
A Rocks, Fossils and Dinosaurs workshop visited Year Three. They had the opportunity to observe some real life fossils. The children also learnt about Mary Anning and her contribution to Science, exploring her discovery of fossils.
Here is an example of some work from Year Three. The children have been investigating which soil type is most permeable.
The children visited The STEM Discovery Centre in Stevenage as part of their ‘Magnets and Forces’ topic.
