On Wednesday, for British Science Week, Y3 designed posters to tell people how they can help the environment by using less plastic. They discussed using reusable shopping bags, buying wooden toys, bamboo toothbrushes, refilling bottles and using biodegradable bowls, cups, plates and cutlery.
Y3 drew what we thought a scientist looked like. There are lots of different ideas of what makes someone a scientist.
Y3 cut out two squares of paper and then coloured them in. They tried to use bright colours. Next they folded the paper in a concertina to make the butterflies wings. After that we used a pipe cleaner to make the butterflies body and attach the wings together.
We have been outside into the woods and collected lots of sticks, leaves and other natural materials. We then worked in groups of three to make a nest that we could pick up without it falling apart. You can see that lots of us managed it.
