AUTUMN 2 2017

What an exciting few weeks we have had in Year 3.  The children have been very busy designing and creating their Stone Age T-shirts, which has been especially challenging, as we have had to source colours and paints for our designs from nature!  We went on a hunt in our woodland area and came back with lots of pots filled with interesting (and yucky) ingredients - it was lots of fun.

AUTUMN 1 2017

The children have had a busy few weeks settling in to their new routines and we are really proud of how they have coped.  The children have enjoyed taking part in assembly, using the library and spending time in the IT suite.  We have also been learning who can help us around the school and what a Year 3 learner might look like.

The children have enjoyed their literacy lessons, they had to be detectives to work out what had happened to the classroom when we got back from break to find leaves, branches, sand and footprints scattered across the floor.   We made predictions and discovered some great new vocabulary to use in our writing.  During maths lessons, we have been learning place value skills to help us solve a tricky problem.  We have been learning all about health and nutrition in our science lessons and improving our sketching skills in art.

Since September much of our learning has bben based around the wonderful book 'Tortuga' by Paul Geraghty.  We have been working extremely hard with our writing to produce our own stories and retelling the adventures of Tortuga.  We have also produced some wonderfully colourful collage Tortugas in art and we have been designing and making Tortuga moving pictures. 

In maths, lots of our learning has been learning to represent maths problems and number sentences in different ways: arrays, number lines and bar models. 

We have a curriculum evening on Wednesday 1st November at 17:30 for parents to find out more about their child's learning so far this term and also to find out what is coming up before Christmas.
