Dearest Year 3 children,

I hope you are all well and that you are already having a great half term break. It doesn't feel the same as normal half term holiday, does it?

I have some activities for you this week which you can choose to do at your leisure. Hopefully they will be fun!

To the best year 3 class in the universe,

Hi there! I hope you have all had a brilliant week and enjoyed the VE Day anniversary celebrations.

Here is my weekly update with details of your tasks for this week and pictures of the wonderful work you have been doing at home and sending to me.

As usual, please make sure you check the Reading, Maths and P.E. pages of the school website. These pages have been updated with activities and links to great learning opportunities.

Please also regularly visit our Esafety page for ideas on staying safe and secure when enjoying the internet!

I have been thinking about our Rock and Roll topic because it has been a sad week in Rock and Roll. Little Richard has passed away, but he leaves some incredible songs and performances behind him. Here he is singing one of my favourites - 'Good Golly Miss Molly.'

You have been showing me some great understanding of types of lines in your Maths work. Here are some examples:

I've also been receiving some FANTASTIC Roman powerpoints which have informed and entertained me greatly!

You have also been telling me a lot about Roman gods this week, using fascinating facts and illuminating illustrations!

Your mystery stories have been very well written. You've thought about suspects, suspense, characterisation and great names for your characters!

Some of you have sent me some great newspaper reports. You have been identifying the features of newspaper reports and giving them a go yourselves!

Mrs Minshull has set you some music tasks for the next few weeks. here they are:

Our trip to the London Science Museum on Thursday 12 March. 

Welcome to Spring Term Year 3!

Our topic this term is...

S P A C E !

In P.E. we have been travelling on apparatus, going under and over each other in pairs.

We created sci-fi paintings using a contrast between warm colours and cold colours.

In Science we tested the opacity of materials to determine how good they were at blocking the light.

Are you getting your 20 minutes of reading a day? 

Why not try one of these :-) 

Happy reading!

Welcome to Autumn Term Year 3!

Our topic this term is

ROCK & ROLL!

In maths we played games to test our knowledge of place value.

                                       

 

 

 

 

 

Last year in Year 3...

Summer topic

THE ROMANS

In Maths, we made cocktails for a Roman banquet. After making samples, we chose the best, then we had to make a larger batch that tasted exactly the same. We used the same ratio of ingredients to achieve the same taste!

Science Day

On Science Day, we tried to prove if Leonardo da Vinci's theories of anatomy (The Vetruvian Man) were correct. This also involved a lot of maths - measuring, fractions and scaling.
