Autumn Term 2 - 2020
A fantastic Autumn 2 for Year 3. We have been busy continuing our Gods and Mortals topic. We were so lucky to have a full DT day where children had the opportunity to make a Greek Lyre. The children were so engaged and picked up some new life skills such as sawing, measuring wood and drilling with the assistance of Mr Hepp.
In Literacy, the children have continued to work hard using a range of grammar and vocabulary in their writing. In Science, we have learned all about rocks. The children have grouped rocks based on their appearance and sequenced the fossilation process. In Maths, we have been working on our times tables in our multiplication and division topic.
PE outside has continued so we have been getting wrapped up warm! Hockey has been our focus and the children are developing their passing and dribbling skills.
The children have worked so hard to be safe in and around school. They have shown such resilience this term. Well done Class 3!
Autumn Term 1 - 2020
A great start to Autumn term for Class 3! We have been busy enjoying our Gods and Mortals topic. The children have learned all about Ancient Greece, where it is on a map and have started to look into the different Gods and Goddesses. We have also used Greek pottery and patterns to inspire us in Art.
In Literacy, the children have enjoyed reading the Iron Man. We have used the Iron Man as our focus text to create character and setting descriptions, instructions and newspaper reports.
In Science, we have explored Light and Shadows. The children enjoyed seeing how light reflects and investigated this using mirrors. We were also able to investigate how shadows are formed and change in size.
We have loved our PE sessions outside, the children have played netball and developed their passing, catching, pivoting and shooting skills.
Year 3 have settled back into school with such resilience. It has been a pleasure to see children reunite with friends and familiarise themselves with the classroom environment again.
The children are all thoroughly engaging in new and familiar learning, their willingness to learn is amazing! Children are following the new safety rules and have shown great maturity to staying safe in their class bubble not just in the class but outside on the playground too.
