Beekeeping Visit - May 2024

In Year 3 in science, we have started learning about pollination and the role bees play in this. To complement our learning, we had a visit from a local bee keeper, Steve. Steve spoke to us all about his role, how bees help plants reproduce and how flowers give bees a sugary reward called nectar. We asked him lots of questions about bees and even got to try some honey!

Royal Naval College

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich! The pupils developed their geography skills and considered the variety of ways that the world has been, and continues to be, depicted in the form of maps and symbols. The students examined the symbols and artwork of the Painted Hall to learn about how the world was viewed at that time and then created their own maps using symbols important to them. They also had the opportunity to find different symbols in Greenwich.

Horniman Museum

On Wednesday,Year Three visited  the  Horniman Museum for a workshop on Ancient Egyptian artefacts. We were not only looking at the artefacts, but holding them as well, so all of us had to wear special white, cotton gloves, because, most of them were thousands of years old. We then visited the new World Gallery, which only opened a week ago, it is fantastic! As it was such a beautiful day, we had lunch and playtime in the park. Everyone had a lovely day. The children,as always, were a credit to Our Lady of Grace and to you.


Science Museum

Year 3 had a wonderful day at the Science Museum.  We had  interactive fun in the “Wonderlab” and loved going to the lecture theatre for workshop all about Forces (our Science topic.)

Year 3 recommend the Science museum for all the children at Our Lady of Grace.  It brings Science to life and most of all it’s fun!
