SCROLL DOWN TO SEE SOME OF OUR GREAT LEARNING SO FAR THIS YEAR ...

Our great learning

This term we have been exploring the text of 'The Suitcase by Chris Naylor'. Here are our performances of the book. 

Today we have had a day filled with writing of setting description, flying and evaluating our DT kite project and even joining in with Jo Wicks live PE for Children in Need. 

This term we have been exploring the text of 'The Suitcase by Chris Naylor'. Here are our performances of the book. 

We will remember them ... Take a look at year 3 celebrating remembrance day. 

 

We have been lucky enough to have our new reading area. We are so excited to be able to share our reading with each other. 

We are really enjoying our science learning this term, here are some of our experiments. 

We have been incredibly proud of year 3 this half term and today they proved that hard work pays off as both classes have produced an anthology of poems. Take a look at our Oliver Jeffers inspired work. 

We have started our new unit looking at the text 'Once upon an alphabet' by Oliver Jeffers. Here is us having a go reciting one of the pages. 

We have been completing our 'Lets go fly a kite' project. Have a look at some of our art and DT.

In PE, we had an extra lesson this week focusing on basketball skills. We really enjoyed practicing our dribbling and passing. 

We love seeing the classes hard at work, here are some of us practicing our handwriting skills when writing our words to the story of journey. 

In RE, we have been exploring the holy trinity and Pentecost. Here is us freeze framing the moment God sent his spirit to the disciples. 

In year 3 this week, we have been continuing to explore the book of journey. In preparation for writing we have been creating freeze frames of the story to develop our vocabulary.  

We are getting to know each other as well and have been working as teams during OAA (outdoor adventure activities). Here is us trying to create some letters from ourselves.

In maths, we have been working hard to understand the place value of numbers. We have used dienes and place value to help us with this.

We have been taking inspiration from our topic of all aboard and decided we would 'Go fly a kite'. This has inspired our DT project for this half term. We have been busy testing materials, joining objects, flying kites and designing our own. Next, we made prototypes to help us to create our final designs on a large scale.  We have really enjoyed this project. 

As each class we have looked at slogans and logos and how these are used in different brands. We have used this to create a brand for our classes and the lower key stage as we go 'All Aboard'. We have also used this to create class charters linked to respect. These can be seen in our classrooms as well. 

It has been a brilliant return and the children are settling in fantastically, getting to know each other and forming a team as a bubble. We are super proud of all the hard work the children are doing and the eagerness they all have to try their best. We can’t wait to see what this year will bring!
