Welcome to the Summer Term
The children have returned refreshed and raring to start on our final term's work in Year 3. Below are this term's information letters and curriculum overview of our exciting and final theme this year -
Fit as a Fiddle.
On Tuesday 28th March 2017, our class was invited to Christ Church to the Easter Experience.
This was a wonderful visit, where the children and I visited 5 Easter stations set up in church to retell the Easter story.
The children were actively involved and greatly appreciated the effort Rev Tim and his Christ Church helpers put in, to make it a very special
Easter treat for us all !
Red Nose Day 2017
Our class Rocked and Dabbed for Comic Relief. Thank you for helping raise funds for this fantastic Charity Day !
Celtic Spy Challenge
We had an exciting visit from Year 2 B'Ed students on Thursday 9th March. They organised and delivered an amazing history challenge, which our class greatly enjoyed ! As our focus is largely geography this term, they related it to our studies on the Roman Invasion. The children had to act as Celtic spies and earn clues to find out about their enemy's Roman town.
Spring Term Theme Homework Projects.
This term the Year 3's are voyaging on an adventure to learn more about the world around them! They will begin their expedition in the U.K. where they will revisit the countries and capital cities we have here, followed by identifying and locating the continents and oceans of the world. Next we set sail for Australia, where they will focus on it's wildlife, with a special focus on the Great Barrier Reef! They will also study Aboriginal art and learn about Dream Time stories. From here, its off to North America where they will encounter the Rocky mountains, Niagara Falls and much more!
An overview of this learning was sent home, along with the Spring Term letter of information.
Fingers crossed, our expedition will provide many fun learning opportunities for us all.
Welcome to Year 3
This Autumn Term our theme is
'From Stone to Rome'.
Our Class Value is Self- Belief and Expression.
This cross curricular theme predominantly centres around Prehistoric history up to the Roman invasion and occupancy of Britain. We will be creating cave paintings, carrying out a study of Stonehenge, designing and making Bronze and Iron Age artefacts, studying the Roman Empire and how their invasion affected Britain. The children will be working in an enquiry -based way, gathering evidence from a variety of sources and applying cross- curricular skills to deepen their knowledge and understanding. (See Theme Overview in documents list below for more information).
