Welcome to Year 3!

September 01, 2020

Hi everyone and a big welcome to Year 3! It is so lovely to see everyone back and we are all quickly adapting to what is the new norm of routines back in school. There are some changes that we have had to make to the curriculum but we aim to make it as varied, interesting and exciting as ever to keep the children stimulated and eager to learn. I have included a newsletter below, outlining some of the work that the children will be doing this half term. Please take time to look at it. There might be changes along the way and I will keep you informed of these via Seesaw and class dojo.  Here's to a fabulous half term! Mrs Hornsby and Mrs Lindley. 

Our Topic

September 01, 2020

In our topic this half term, we will be looking at the Stone Age Period in History. We will be looking at the changes that occurred throughout this time and how people lived and survived. We will be researching facts, reading and acting out stories and making models in an effort to bring to life just what life was like back then. I will be sharing what the children are up to in school on Seesaw and encourage you to do the same, sharing any homework they do. Please click on the link for the Topic Enrichment activities and aim to do one every two weeks. Don't forget to post them on Seesaw! Many thanks, Mrs Hornsby.

Stone Age

The children have absolutely loved our topic on the Stone Age and have really bowled me over with their enthusiasm! They have produced some wonderful work, both at school and at home and they have enjoyed sharing what they have researched or made with the rest of the class throughout the topic. 

Christmas Party

The children had a great time at our Christmas party this year. They played lots of games and enjoyed dancing, before tucking into party food and taking selfies!

Making magnetic games

The children loved investigating the power of magnets and different forces in Science. They worked in pairs to design and make their own magnetic games and thought of rules needed to play these. They proudly demonstarted their games to the class before taking turns to play each others and report back. 

Chinese New Year 2020 

Year 3 celebrated Chinese New Year by making "rat" book marks and origami dragons. The children also snacked on prawn crackers and created their own fortune cookies, which they enjoyed sharing with each other. Sadie brought in a book called "Chopsticks" which she read to the class at the end of the day. 

 

 

Bootcamp

The children have loved our Bootcamp sessions in PE this half term and have been really motivated to set personal goals and  try and  improve these as the weeks progressed.  More than anything though, the sessions were really fun to do!

Investigating plants

As part of our Science topic on "Plants" the children investigated all the parts that made up plants and looked at why they were important. This included the roots of the plant and in order to see them, we planted bean seeds in clear containers, using damp cotton wool instead of soil. The children were able see how the roots developed over the weeks and record the changes that they observed. 

 

 

Active Maths

The children really enjoy our daily Maths lessons, especially if they start with an investigation that they can all become actively involved in! They work in pairs or groups and often have to move about the classroom, collecting information and using their skills to work out solutions. Of course, there is often the incentive of racing against the clock to see how quickly they can work it out!
