'From the seeds of hard work grows a tree of success'

Welcome to Year 3

Our topic this half term is…

Open wide -let’s take a look inside! We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body!

Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites!

Follow a tasty morsel as it makes your way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva! Mmmm! And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene – at both ends!

And whilst we’re talking business… could you recognise an animal just by its poo? Are you brave enough to take the challenge?

Do beans really have wind power? Let’s work scientifically and bottom this one out, once and for all!`

Make a working model of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture-making machine we call our body.

The Imagination Box

by Martyn Ford

There is a box. Anything you imagine will appear inside. You have one go, one chance to create anything you want. What would you pick?” That’s exactly the question ten-year-old Timothy Hart gets to answer after discovering The Imagination Box. The greatest toy on earth. The top-secret contraption transforms his life but when the box’s inventor, Professor Eisenstone, goes missing, Tim knows he has to investigate. With the help of a talking finger monkey called Phil, he sets out to find the professor. In order to rescue his friend, he must face his darkest fears and discover the true potential of his own mind.
