Autumn 2

It was lovely to see the children return to school eager to learn again.

 

It's All Fun and Games

The Year 3s have been given a challenge to design and make their own magnetic board game to be used for lunch times. During the project, children will follow a specific design criteria to develop their board game. They will write a DT manual to explain the process and a ‘rules and instructions’ leaflet to accompany their board games, using computing. To allow their board games to be successful, they will learn about forces and exploring different types of magnets and magnetic materials. Furthermore, the children will apply their musical knowledge to create a jingle to advertise their creations! Games will be showcased at a gaming convention, which will allow parents and pupils to experience the pleasure of playing their unique board games.

 

As part of the hook, the children received a video from a scientist that enthused them for their learning.

 

Autumn 1

What a start we have made to our learning journey in Year 3!

 

Changes.

Our first Project was entitled Changes. We read books by the author and illustrator, Anthony Browne. In class, we discussed the challenges, emotions and actions of the characters and what we can learn from these characters.  We discussed how changes make us feel and how we can express our emotions.  Using what we learned, we created a story about changes and shared them with others. 

 

Revolting Rhymes and Twisted Tales.

In this project, we will be creating our own 'Twisted Tales' and 'Revolting Rhymes' to be added to a class collection of books.  During this project, we will be familiarising ourselves with traditional fairy tales and poems before creating our own twisted tales.

To accompany our stories and poems, we will become scientists.  We will learn about shadows and light so that we can successfully create our own shadow puppets. We will then deliver our stories and poems to our adults during our project outcome.

Home learning 

The Home Learning sheet can be found in the Home Learning section of the website.

 

  • The children will also receive weekly spellings. Spellings will be put into your child’s diary every Friday to be tested on the following Friday.
  • We also ask that you please read with your child at least 4 times a week and sign your child’s home school diary. If children read four times, they will receive a raffle ticket to be put into a prize draw. The raffle will be drawn at the end of term.
  • Lastly, we ask that you regularly use Times Table Rock Stars with your children at home. This online resource will support children with learning their times tables.

 

Google Classrooms

If any children in Year 3 are self-isolating , in the first instance, please log in to Google Classrooms. This will be updated to reflect the learning in school. Please also continue with reading and learning times tables, using Oxford Reading Buddy and Timestables Rockstars to support with this. Log on for Google classroom can be found in the children's home school diaries.
