Welcome to Year Three!

Week beginning 21st November 2022

This week the children finished off writing their own description based on the one they had learnt.  They included expanded noun phrases, alliteration and used their senses.  

Week Beginning 14th November 2022

Year 3 went on a school trip to West Stowe Anglo-Saxon Village. The children had a fantastic day, gaining an insight into what Anglo-Saxon life was like. We explored a range of houses, that were built during this time, as well as looking at artefacts first-hand in the museum.

Week Beginning 7th November 2022

This week year 3 have started their Art unit on printing.  They chose their leaf design and used string to go around the edge to create their printing block.  Once this is dry we will be able to use paint to print our images on paper.

Week beginning 17th October 2022

Throughout the half term children have been bringing in their amazing pieces of work from the homework grid.  We have shields, houses, jewellery, pictures, poems and lots more.  The work is of fantastic quality and makes a great couple of displays.  We cannot wait to see what is brought in next half term.  Keep up the good work year 3! 

Week Beginning 10th October 2022

Our current unit of work in English is 'Instructions'.  In order to fully understand what is required when writing a set of instructions the children had to follow instructions to make a jam sandwhich.  This then enabled them to write their own instructions using imperative verbs (bossy verbs such as: cut, spread,fold); time conjunctions (e.g. first, next, finally) and adverbs (e.g. carefully, sensibly, evenly).  

Week Beginning 3rd October

This week year 3 have been learning to play the glokenspiel - notes E and D.  They clapped in time to the music and played to the tune 'Drive' on Charanga - the music programme we use in school.

Week beginning 12th September

Our unit this term has started looking at The Stone Age.  For this we have looked at different caves across the world with their amazing cave painting discoveries.  We decided to recreate these by putting our paper under the desk and drawing using charcoals and chalks as if we were cave people drawing on the ceiling of a cave.  The children enjoyed this new way of working although they did find it extremely tricky lying down and drawing above them.

Week beginning 5th September 2022

This week year 3 have been learning all about South America.  The have learnt about Brazil and the Rio carnival where they made masks and had a parade.  They have also been learning the art of weaving, researching different countries and recording this as well as a range of different art work.
