Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

We are excited to start our new topic called

LIFE IN THE CAVES!

This is based on discovering what life was like in the Stone Age.

We will covering lots of different aspects of the Stone Age through questions such as:

What types of rocks are there and what were they used for?

How did Stone Age people keep themselves warm?

What are the similarities and differences between homes/dwellings in my local area?

How do we know so much about life in the Stone Age?

 

We will be reading Stig of the Dump as well as The Stone Age boy, Ug - the boy Genius and How to Wash a Woolley Mammoth in English.

These are all linked to our topic too!

Summer term - Ancient Greece

We have had an amazing start to our new topic of Ancient Greece.

On Greek day the children dressed up in Greek costumes, tried a range of foods, learnt a Greek dance and made both a snake headdress (like Medussa) and designed and made a shield for a Greek solider.

We will be learning about what life was like in Ancient Greece as well as comparing it to modern day life. We will be looking at Greek art by making a clay vase and decorating it in the style the Ancient Greeks.

 

Spring Term -Predators

This term our topic is the very exciting Predators and we started it with a visit from Kilton Pet rescue. The children found it very exciting to be close to a variety of birds of prey and land predators. They will be learning about dinosaurs, fossils, skeletons and crocodiles to name a few things so we are looking forward to a super exciting term.

We have had an exciting time so far with lots of food tasting including designing and creating our own cereals!
We have been very fortunate to have had a visit from Morrisons, who taught us about recycling plastics and brought us lots of fruit and vegetables to try - it was yummy!

We also walked to Morrisons to look at their fresh fruit and vegetable, and frozen sections  of the supermarket. It was a long way but definitely worth it!

Welcome to Year 3!

 

Mrs O'Brien and Mrs Pressley are enjoying getting to know all our new year 3 children, they are settling in very well so far!

This term our year 3 topic is "Scrumdiddlyumptious!" We are looking forward to finding out more about different foods, trying them and creating our own versions!
