Our Class Read
Year 3’s class reads are currently ‘The Great Storm’ & 'The Great Cave' both by Terry Deary.
The children are really enjoying this book so far and as part of our school reading pledge, teachers are sharing this story with their classes for at least 10 minutes every day.
Welcome to Year 3 at Two Mile Ash School. Please scroll down to find out further information about Year 3, including our class read, staffing structure and things we have been up to.

For our science topic this year, year 3's have been studying plants. In our most recent experiment, we have been looking at the parts of plants, particularly how water and nutrients are transported around. We started by having a little bit of celery each and dissecting it to find the part that lets celery transport the water and nutrients. We found out that xylem tubes are in celery and we located these in our dissection. The teachers used digital microscopes to zoom in closely to see these on the interactive whiteboards.
After we had identified how water and nutrients were transported, we used celery and dyed water to see whether or not the coloured water will travel up the xylem tubes and into the celery. We have been checking up on the celery each day and are eagerly hoping to see the dye in the celery's xylem tubes after 1 week of soaking!
