Welcome to our Year 3
Our Year 3 News Bulletin is below, outlining some of the work that our wonderful children will be learning 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.
In our topic this half term we will be learning all about the Ancient Greece and when it occured. We will be learning about the differences between Athens and Sparta and what it means to live in a democracy. We will be looking at what daily life was like at this time and the beliefs of the people and warfare. We will also be looking at what influence the Ancient Greeks had on our lives today. As always I will be sharing what our amazing children are learning in school on Seesaw and encourage you to do the same so that we can celebrate the work they do around the topic at home as well. Please see on Seesaw for the full list of Topic Enrichment activities available.
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.
Science- Living things including humans!
The children have loved learning all about how our bodies work and how to keep healthy this half term. They have planned healthy meals as well as learning about their skeleton and the important job it does. They have compared their own skeletons to those of other animals and even looked at animals that have no skeletons! The children have also looked at food chains and the importance of these.
Making magnetic games
The children loved investigating the power of magnets and different forces in Science. They created maze games where the characters moved through the mazes with the help of magnets...
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.
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!
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!
