Below you will find documents and links to what we will be studying this term and beyond.
Welcome to a new Year 3.
We have got off to an exciting start exploring Stone Age life through Forest School.
Using only natural materials the children were asked to design a wind and rain proof shelter for teddy to camp out over night in.
You can't beat a camp fire for sharing your thrilling Stone Age tales, for example the day we escaped from a sabre tooth tiger; or the day we hunted down a woolly mammoth or the day we had to build a shelter in a snow storm! But how could we pass on our stories for other generations to enjoy? There was only one thing for it. We would have to record them as cave paintings. Luckily we had the charcoal from our fire for us to draw with.
Take a look at the pictures from Year 3's Twycross Zoo trip below....
We had a wonderful day, learning more information about rainforests and the creatures that make their homes there. The children behaved superbly and had a fantastic day. We would like to thank Shai's Mum and Grace's Mum for coming along to help out...
The Mathletics logins for Year 3 will all be given out at Parent's Evening. Have a go and let us know what you think of all of the Maths games and activities on the site...
Many thanks to all of the parents and relatives who attended Year 3's Inspire Workshop! We had a fantastic morning learning about how to tackle tricky reasoning problems!
As discussed at the workshop, here are some useful websites to help your child's learning at home:
Stone Age Day!
Below are the pictures from our Stone Age experience day to round off our recent topic! In the morning the children had the chance to build a boat from lots of different materials to hold a piece of stone on the water. This was linked to our work on how Stonehenge was created by people thousands of years ago. In the afternoon we were lucky enough to be visited by the ladies from Mrs History. The children had the chance to handle Stone Age artefacts, create Stone Age jewellery and even dress up as cavemen and cavewomen. They had a fantastic day and impressed the visitors with their awesome Stone Age knowledge!
In today's English lesson, both 3B and 3J had the chance to act out a scene from the Iron Man. In Chapter 2, eight year old Hogarth meets the terrifying Iron Man and tricks him into falling down a trap built by the villagers. Can you tell who is Hogarth and who is the Iron Man in the pictures below...
As part of our shape work in Maths, the children have been constructing 3D shapes from nets. Can your child tell us how many faces, edges and vertices their shape had?
We have been putting our text effects skills into practise by completing some Stone Age information posters. Take a look at some of the dazzling designs...
Year 3 have been loving their topic on the Stone Age so far this year! Ask your child about all of the amazing things they have learned...
Artwork photos coming soon!
