Year 3 have had a wonderful start to their new school year and are enjoying being back together.  Take a look below at what we have been learning about in our first term…

Maths

In our first half term we have been working on place value. We have learnt about 3 digit numbers going up to 1000 and improved our knowledge of thousands, hundreds, tens and ones by playing games such as: roll it, draw it!

English

Our class text this half term was ‘The True Story of the Three Little Pigs’. The children loved reading this book and its clever twist on a classic! The children interacted with this book in lots of different ways, eventually writing their own version, such as the three bunnies and the fox.

 

RE

Our first unit of RE was spent looking at the sacraments. We started this off by learning the first sacrament, Baptism. The children were lucky to be able to visit the church, where Deacon Pat helped them to act out a baptism on one of the school dolls. The children took on all of the roles bringing their learning to life. We finished this off by creating a non-fiction book on Baptism for our class library!

 

Art

Last half term, Year 3 worked with Mrs Breakwell to develop their skills using Mod Rock. They worked with the media to make hot air balloons inspired by the twisted fairy-tale ‘Cinderella and the hot air balloon’ and the artist Van Gogh.

The children made nets to fold up into baskets, weaving coverings for the outside of the baskets and then making Minpin peg dolls to fly them (inspired by our class book, The Minpins, by Roald Dahl). The Minpins have since flown away in their balloons and are now floating in the entrance hall amongst the Christmas paper chain decorations.

 

Geography

In geography we have been learning about the UK. We have learnt about the different regions, counties and cities.

We also looked at topographical maps and what they show. We consolidated this knowledge by creating a 3D map of England, Scotland and Wales. We then painted it and made a key to show the low land and the mountains.

 

Unhomework

Following the theme of twisted fairy tales, we have had some fantastic homework shared with the class. From puppets and 3D scenes to story writing and a cake house!

 

Geography

In Year 3 we have been looking at Human and Physical Geography. We studied what made them different and how some places could include both! We then went on a walk around Pershore to see if we could spot some Human features. We spotted shops, schools, The Abbey, The Serpentine Wall and so many more!

 

 

Outdoor Learning

Year 3 had a great afternoon outside. They took inspiration from Julia Donaldson’s fantastic story, Stickman. The children collected items from around the forest school area and created their own version, from butterflies to cats!

Science

As part of our learning about plants and their habitats, we enjoyed a hands-on, active day of learning at Bishop’s Wood today, exploring the fantastic habitats there and learning about plants and what they need to grow. Some of the children played the part of a seed, and their partner covered them in ‘soil’ (a brown blanket) and made sure they were warm and gave them water. With these two essential elements the seeds began to grow! With more water and plenty of sunshine the plants grew taller and even grew leaves!

Afterwards they went outside into the sunshine to spot plants in their natural habitats, using keys to identify them and quadrats to see how many species they could find in a defined area. There was plenty of time for science related games and a chance to explore the site.
