We have continued with our theme of 'When I Grow Up' this week. We have been finding out about the lifecycles of animals that come from eggs such as frogs, butterflies, chickens and even snakes and sharks. We've had a good chat about and painted some pictures of what we hope to be when we grow up and now we have begun to think about the life cycle of plants.
We enjoyed reading stories about a boy called Oliver who never ate vegetables until he saw them all grow. So we had a look at different vegetables and decided on prices for them according to how heavy they were.
Also we had a look at the salad that we had at lunchtime. We pulled it all apart and named each vegetable. Then we decided to plant the seeds from those vegetables so that we can grow a salad of our own. We read and ordered some instructions so we knew how to plant the seeds correctly and now we are writing some instructions too.

We have begun our new topic of Chocolate with gusto in Year 3. We are learning the history of chocolate and about its origins.
The children are enjoying discovering characters in our story, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, and imagining their own inventions to be considered by Willy Wonka!
