Welcome to Year 3!

 

Take a look at some of our fantastic work below!

 

Art - Who were some of the great European Artists?

 Year 3 have really enjoyed painting like Michelangelo. The children learnt that he never painted an animal so their task was to paint different animals upside down! Year 3 found it really tricky to paint upside down but they still had lots of fun and learnt lots of facts about him!

English - Instruction Writing

Year 3 have learnt all about how Iron Age roundhouses are created. They then made their own roundhouse using card but made sure they read all the instructions first!

History

Year 3 have started their new topic Bronze Age to Iron Age. The children have produced a map of a settlement at the start of the lesson (left of the pictures) and then another map after learning all about Bronze Age settlements (right of the pictures). Year 3 have learnt all about what they need in a Bronze Age settlement such as the woods, a river and roundhouses. 

Year 3 have started their new topic Bronze Age to Iron Age. At the start of the lesson, they have created a mind map demonstrating all their knowledge from their last topic about the Romans and have listed different Roman inventions. Their previous knowledge of the Romans will help them when learning all Bronze and Iron Age inventions.

Computing

 Year 3 have been creating their own quizzes in Computing with Mrs Webster. They have made their own true or false questions based upon staying safe when using Purple Mash. 

Instruction Writing

Year 3 have been learning all about instructions and how important it is to read them carefully. As part of the 'immerse' part of our topic, we have followed different recipes to make jam sandwiches. Yummy!

Who were some of the great European Artists?

Year 3 are enjoying their new Art topic and have brought in their own research about different European artists as part of the 'Unlocking Task'. The children have chosen their won artists to research such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Da Vinci and Banksy. Check out the work produced by Emily, Harvey and Ethan below. 

Road Safety! Road Safety! Road Safety! Road Safety! Road Safety! Road Safety! 

Year 3 enjoyed their talk about road safety. They followed Indi-Annie Jones into the jungle and used drama to demonstrate how to cross a crocodile-infested river safely! Year 3 also know how to cross the road safely by following the 4 rules which are think, stop, look and listen.  

Year 3 have been composing music after listening to Hall of the Mountain King by Grieg...

Year 3 have been learning all about Fibonacci, the famous mathematician. We have written lots of facts about him and have worked out the next numbers in the sequence. We have even had a go at drawing the sequence in our books. We can spot the numbers in Fibonacci's sequence in nature such as a clover, a snail's shell and a pine cone! Take a look at our fantastic work below. 

Year 3 are enjoying Maths Week and are using their knowledge of addition to make 100 by escaping the maze! Will they escape the maze? Check out their work below!

Parliament Week       Parliament Week       Parliament Week     Parliament Week      Parliament Week     

Year 3 have been debating whether there should be an age limit on eating junk food. The results are in... Y3S For: 8 Against: 19. Y3K For: 13 Against: 15. Both classes were against the idea of an age limit. The children expressed their opinion confidently and passionately. I think we might have a few Prime Ministers in the making!

What can we find in the UK? 

 Year 3 have started their new Geography unit 'What can we find in the UK?' by discussing facts and using an atlas to identify the countries and cities within the UK.  

How do I get a silent night?

Year 3 have started their Design and Technology journey for the Autumn term! They have been immersed into the topic by evaluating existing products. The children brought in a range of pillows and cushions from home and have conducted a product analysis on them, looking at how they have been made, the aesthetics and how comfortable they are! They will now use this knowledge to make their own! Keep your eyes peeled!

Tie-Dye!

Year 3 have been tie-dying their material as part of their Design Technology topic. After the dye has dried, they will be ready to create their pillow. They have chosen a range of techniques and have created patterns such as stripes, spirals and polka dots. 

Meet the Teacher 2019 - 2020

Thank you to all the parents and carers who attended the Year 3 Meet the Teacher session. Below is the presentation in case you missed it.

 

Year 3 really rocked the TT Rock Star Day! Take a look at our Rock Chicks and Rock Legends. Rock on Year 3!

During Collective Worship, Year 3 have been discussing how we can show love around school. We can show love by helping others when they are struggling with their work and showing kindness to everyone. 

Roman Experience Day

 On 1st July, we welcomed an educational company called 'Makers of History' to our school. The children were invited to dress as Celts and experience what it was like when the Romans took over the country.  

They learnt about what the Romans brought to Britain and got an idea of what it was like to be a Roman. 

Lots of fun was had by all! Below are a few pictures from our day.

 E-Safety week

This week in Y3, the children have used the computers to create a poster. The aim of the poster is to promote safe and positive use of digital technology. 

 

 

Take a look at an example from Oliver and Brandon in Y3E. 

Happy New Year!

This week we have been learning how to follow instructions and have made some delicious jam sandwiches.  

  

 

This half term we will be learning all about different rainforests. We will be locating different rainforests on a map, looking at different animals and their habitats and comparing the different climates.
