Year 3

Reading Fun

In reading we have been fascinated with two very different Roald Dahl Books. We finished reading Danny, Champion of the World and discovered the secret world of pheasant poaching. We enjoyed reading about the great relationship between Danny and his father. Mr Victor Hazel proved to be a formidable bad guy.

We have also whizzed through Fantastic Mr. Fox. We enjoyed discussing the great difference between the two books.

Science and the world of magnets

We have been looking at the world of magnets and we were so surprised to find out that there are magnets in many electrical items like phones, computers and even microwaves! We learned that magnets can be very powerful and that some materials are attracted to magnets while others aren’t!

Did you know that not all coins are magnetic? We are now looking at Rocks!

Geography and Europe

We have been studying maps of Europe and are learning about the geography of this great area of the world. We have looked at our closeness to other countries and the seas that surround us.

Computing

We have been exploring computing and how to be presenters. We learned how to plan, develop, film, edit and complete a video presentation on something of interest to us. We had a target of 1 minute! We learned a lot and made some great presentations.

Year 3 Assembly

Year 3 had a brilliant experience re-telling the one of the greatest stories of courage in the bible. Their assembly explained, in detail, the story of David and Goliath.

They portrayed the armies of the Philistines and Israel; and even used a huge model of Goliath! Together, they brought action and tension to the retelling of this well-known story.

Anti-Bullying Week

During Anti-bullying week we made two anti-bullying posters each and entered them into year 5's competition.  We watched a video about different types of bullying, about cyber, physical and verbal.  We paired up with year 5 and they acted out different plays and we had to say which type of bullying they were acting.

Year 3 Creation week

Topic

Our topic this term has been ‘The United Kingdom’. As part of this we are studying the Stone Age. We are focusing on our historical enquiry skills and using a range of sources to find out information.

We are also preparing to use maps and atlases to find out more about where we live.  In RE we have been learning about the Creation and our class story book has been ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl.

Maths

Year 3 has been working on number; sequencing and counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  They have also been working on rounding and fractions. The children have also found their work on 3D shapes interesting and completed some special spellings to support their study.

English

Year 3 have been reading and studying text from Roald Dahl’s book The Twits. Using the delightful illustrations, children have had many opportunities to practice simple, compound and complex sentences with powerful verbs. They have also been creating their own writing based around The Gunpowder Plot and God’s Creation of the Earth.

Science

In Science the children have been learning about Animals Including Humans - Keeping Healthy. They have develop specialised knowledge, skills and understanding in nutrition, muscles, bones and joints and even conduct their own research in order to answer science questions. We are now moving on to Light and shadows. During this block we are creating our own shadow puppet play using your expert knowledge and skills on light and shadows. We are making theatre and puppets for the show in groups and conduct your own investigations on shadows, light and reflections.

Y3 Science 11.17

In year three we took some pictures of God's creation.  We took some of trees, flowers and animals.

In English we wrote about something we did in the summer holidays.  We have started to read The Twits. 

In Maths we have been learning our timestables.  We have been feeling brilliant.
