Welcome to Liberty Class!

​In Year 3 we work as a team, we take pride in our work and we have fun!

We are a friendly and responsible team who show respect for everyone and everything in our class, school and our community. We are a hard-working class of fantastic, enthusiastic learners who enjoy active, practical tasks and we can’t wait to explore and learn this year.

Our favourite thing to do is to ask questions to help us to find out more and we really get excited by the new things we learn.

Liberty class are looking forward to a fabulous year of learning and hope you enjoy sharing it with us.

Science: The Digestive System

Today we have been learning about what happens to our food after we have eaten it. We created models to help us to see how the food gets broken down, the body uses all of the nutrients it needs and how we are left with poo! 💩 This made us laugh a lot!

NILE UPDATE 2

Wow! Look at our Nile models now. Just 1 week after we flooded our Nile models we have seen our grass (representing Egyptian crops) shoot up. We noticed that the grass has grown best close to the Nile. We have reasoned that this is because these are the areas that received the most water when we flooded the Nile and the crops need water to grow well. We learnt that this land is known as fertile land as it is where things can grow. The Egyptians knew this as the ‘black land’ as the floods caused black silt to cover the Ground and make it fertile.

Mummifying Tomatoes

Today we have been learning about the mummification process. We have set up an investigation to explore which ratio of salt and bicarbonate of soda (our version of natron used by the Egyptians) preserves our tomatoes the best. Keep a look out to see our results later in the term.

Drama – Isis and the Cobra

The first text we are using to support our writing is called Isis and the Cobra and it is an Egyptian myth.  We created freeze frames to represent each paragraph of the story. 

Keep a look out for:

  • A cobra rearing up to bite!
  • A boat travelling to the underworld
  • An Egyptian temple

NILE UPDATE

The Nile flooding has definitely had an impact. We noticed that overnight our crops had had a huge amount of growth. This was particularly noticeable along the banks of the river.

Flooding the Nile

We created models of the Nile River.  We used grass seed to represent crops and scattered them across all of the soil and sand.  Next we flooded our rivers so we can observe them over time to see what happens to our crops.

Most of us predicted that the crops closest to the river would grow best as they had access to water which the crops need to grow.  Keep a look out for more photos later in term when we will show you what happened!
