Welcome to Year 3. Our teacher is Miss White. Mrs Farrow and Mrs Hardy are teaching assistants in Year 3.
- How many songs can you list that mention water or rivers? Get your family and friends to help – and then have some fun singing a selection!
- Help organise your family’s recycling, taking the glass to a bottle bank or visiting your local household waste recycling centre.
- Visit a river and test the flow by playing Pooh sticks. It’s easy… just drop a stick from a bridge into the water and let it race your friends’ sticks to the other side!
- Visit a gallery and look at river paintings. Why do you think so many artists are inspired by water?
- Draw, paint or take photos of a beautiful river scene.
- Grow something edible using soil. Potatoes are easy to grow and tasty to eat!
- Be a landscape gardener! Visit a garden centre and look at water features. Could you make one in your garden? You’ll need water, soil, pipes and jugs and maybe some pretty stones.
- Go pond dipping. Take a net and a light-coloured bowl or bucket to get a good view of your collected specimens. Remember to put back any creatures you catch into the pond.
- Help a member of your family to wash a car or visit an automatic carwash. Which method do you think uses least water?
- Make a rain gauge and use it to measure rainfall in your garden.
- Put on wellies on a wet day and go on a puddle expedition. See who can find the biggest puddle, then splash through it!
- Place different items in a puddle or water-filled container to see which ones float and which ones sink
- Find out how to save water around the home. Make a list of top tips to advise your family on water conservation.
- Join adult volunteers and take part in a river clean up day. Find out if there is an active river or canal trust conservation group in your local area.
- Be a responsible citizen. If you spot pollution, such as oil on the beach, whilst you are out with your family, report it to the local council. If you suspect a stream is polluted, report it to the Environment Agency.
We do lots of activities that are very fun.
I love learning in my classroom. The teachers help us to do our best.
