In science Year 3 have been learning all about pollination and the role bees play as pollinators. To complement their learning, Year 3 had the amazing opportunity to meet a beekeeper. Steve from ‘Charlton Bees’ visited the pupils to answer all their bee related questions and explain more about how pollination works. The pupils even got to try some delicious local honey!
Greenwich Ecology Park
Year 3 had the amazing opportunity to visit the Greenwich Ecology Park, to complement their learning in science regarding plants! The pupils learnt about plants that help and harm us, how important it is to protect the environment, and had the opportunity to bird watch and hold different creatures!
Year 3 had the amazing opportunity to work with 'Arty Party.' In small groups, the pupils worked on the canvas to create a piece that reflected our local area and school! The experience was enjoyed by all and gave the pupils an opportunity to further develop their painting and drawing skills!
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.
On Friday 29th April Year 3 had an incredible day at The British Museum to support this term's topic. As you can see, they thoroughly enjoyed the day.

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.
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!
