Our English writing topic was launched with a dress up in an Egyptian costume day. We had lots of Temple cats, Egyptian Pharoahs and Queens and even a Mummy. 

" I felt excited that we could dress up and bring Egypt into our classroom."

Autumn Term 2017

In the Autumn term we begin with our transition topic where the children will learn about life at the Junior school. We will also be discovering what life was like 3000 years ago in Ancient Egypt in our exciting topic ‘Time to Meet a Mummy’. We will be learning about farming, the importance of the River Nile, the fascinating pyramids, the pharaohs and the different stages of mummification! In Science, we will be looking at ‘Forces and Magnets’, comparing and grouping a variety of everyday materials on whether they are attracted to a magnet. We will then be investigating human and animal skeletons. In music lessons we will be composing and performing Egyptian music. DT will involve investigating and making levers and linkages during our mechanical systems work. We will be practising our basketball skills in PE.

In D&T, we made Egyptian cat pictures with levers and linkages.

Roald Dahl Day

The children looked fantastic in their Roald Dahl themed costumes. We played 'guess my character' and in maths we used our place value knowledge to work out numbers hidden by Ronald Dahl characters.

Ancient Egyptian Artwork

All the children in Year 3 spent an afternoon in the hall working in pairs to produce a picture to represent Ancient Egypt. It was very messy but lots of fun.

Being inspired at a Sky for Living event

Our Year 3 Mathletics champions. Everyone tried really hard in our head to head challenge but these children just pipped the rest. Well done.

Some children in Year 3 spent the afternoon exploring watercolours. We looked at paintings and real tulips linked to our topic roots, fruits and shoots.

The chicks are now one week old. Look how much they have grown! Some are starting to get proper wing feathers so we need to be careful when we clean them out.

Our chicks are hatching! They will stay in the incubator for at least 12 hours before being moved to the brooder.

We were so excited this morning to find some of our eggs were pipping and some had hatched. We have been chirping a lot to encourage them all to hatch.
We had a fantastic day out at Herd Farm. The weather was against us in the morning when we built Stone Age tepees but luckily the sun appeared by lunchtime and we enjoyed our lunch outside before becoming StoneAge Warriors. We threw spears and hunted down a deer (not real of course). We learnt a lot about using resources found in the area including how to make a fire.

We are so egg-cited. The Hen lady visited our school along with some of her feathery friends. We got to feed the hens and then find out how to look after our very own eggs and chicks. The eggs are currently in an incubator where they will stay warm for 19 days. Then all being well we will begin to see some chicks peck their way out of the egg shells.

Spring term 2017

What Makes the Earth Angry?

Our first topic this term was ‘What makes the earth angry?’ We learnt about and sorting different types of rocks within our science work. We explored earthquakes and volcanoes including the location of well-known volcanoes. In Art, created volcano pictures and made our own volcanoes, using them to produce our own volcanic eruptions!

 

Footprints from the Past

Our topic in the second spring term was linked to The Stone Age to the Iron Age period in history where we looked at how people lived within this time. In Science, we investigated rocks and soils. During this half term, looked at strengths and challenges and celebrating differences in PSHE and who can inspire us in our RE work.

World Book Day 2017

We had lots of fun on World Book Day. The children looked fantastic in their character costumes. We role played familiar stories then read a book about Mary Anning the fossil collector. This inspired the children through art to chalk and make string fossils. In the afternoon we read a book called 'The Stoneage boy' and looked at a collection of cave paintings before we had a go at making a class cave art display.

In ICT we worked together to produce a video newscast about volcanoes. We learnt how to be a presenter, looking at the camera and speaking clearly with expression and how to have a steady hand when filming.

PSHE volcano marble run challenge. How does it feel to be challenged?

We learnt a lot about the different layers our planet is made up of using play dough. Very sticky work!

Check out our fantastic volcano homework. So proud of our class effort.

Maths Week
We had fun hunting around school for 3D shapes and then making 3D shapes from nets.

Maths Week

 

We began this week by measuring our partners in centimetres and converting the measurements to millimetres. We then compared measurements using < > or = .

We went dotty for Children in Need

We went dotty for Children in Need 1

In Flanders fields the poppies blow,

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky, 

The larks, still bravely singing, fly,

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

By John McCrae 

 

The children have all settled into life in the Juniors and have enjoyed a successful, fun filled and very busy first half term. Here are some of the things we have been up to in 3L. 

 

P.S.H.E Drugs Debate

We used role play to help us prepare for future real life situations.

We discussed in groups whether different drugs were helpful or harmful and recorded our decisions on Venn diagrams. It proved an interesting debate when we looked as a class at each groups decisions.

Ancient Egyptians

Our topic launch got us all excited, we discovered, discussed and arranged Egyptian artefacts and then made bracelets using clay beads.

Revolting Poetry

Inspired by Roald Dahl, we wrote our own revolting recipes and performed them to each other.

Science Forces and Magnets

Both Year 3 classes enjoyed investigating forces and magnets this half term.
