Working in Cotton Mills

We found a diary entry from a young girl called Eliza. The diary told us that sadly, Eliza had to stop going to school and go and work in a cotton mill instead so she could earn money for her family.

today we did some research all about children working in the cotton mills in Victorian England. Have a look at some of the facts we found below.

Chat with Professor Gilbertstein

We planted our special seeds yesterday and were amazed to come into school this morning to find this…

We were very lucky this afternoon to talk to a specialist on plants and ask him all our questions on the vibrant viridor.

Year 3 Discover Mysterious Seeds

We came into school today to find a newspaper article all about some mysterious seeds that have been found at Russell Scott school by some builders.

The unusual seeds, which look unlike any seeds we have seen before, were in a capsule and it is thought that they could have been there for years.

We investigated the seeds this morning and then worked on writing questions to ask a plant expert later in the week.

Have a look at our padlet and add any questions of your own to it.

Magic Beans

This morning, Year 3 discovered some magic beans. They were brought to us by builders digging in the school playground. The beans look very unusual and seem to be from an alien planet. A newspaper report hot off the press was delivered which gave us some clues.

We were bursting with questions about the mysterious beans. Here are some examples.

World Book Day 2017

What a fantastic day! Everyone put in an enormous effort with their costumes and looked absolutely amazing! Thank you to all of you for taking part.

We enjoyed out costume parade and competition in the hall and did lots of fun reading activities including bar charts in maths to find out our favourite authors and making bookmarks. Very excitingly, one of 3H was liked by David Walliams on Twitter for her Gangsta Granny costume!
