Year 3 – Winter blog

We have had a fantastic start to the year in Year 3. We have all worked very hard to improve our writing this half term and planned and wrote our own three part stories based on The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Our teachers were very impressed by our use of interesting vocabulary, Similes, Adverbs and Powerful Verbs to create suspense in our stories.

In Geography, we learned about the countries that make up the United Kingdom, their capital cities and the surrounding seas. We then looked at the wider world, studying the continents, the poles and how the position of countries to the equator affect their temperature. Ask us the best place to visit for a summer holiday!

Next half term, we will be studying the Romans.

Year 3 Blog – Autumn half term

This half-term our topic has been called ‘The Savage Stone Age’.  The majority of our work has been based on the life of the people who lived in that time period. We have looked at and written about how early man survived and developed over time , achieving things such as; finding fire, taming animals and inventing the wheel. The children’s artwork has been heavily linked to the Stone Age period and they have enjoyed creating cave art and painting Stone Age images onto rocks.

As always, there has been a huge focus on writing and the children have been learning how to use a range of features in order to write descriptions of characters and settings as well as a factual piece related to The Stone Age. The children used these features to create a Stone Age Power point Presentation. They particularly enjoyed using the ‘animations’ tool to make their presentation come alive!

We have had a fantastic start to the year with our achievement of the X-Factor rewards, which the children receive for excellent work. The children have responded well to this system and have shown great motivation towards earning the rewards. It has been a close call with a lot of the children running head to head for some time. The reward system has worked extremely well and will start again after half-term.

My Maths – Year 3

Dear Parent/Carer,
We will be holding a meeting on Wednesday 16th September at 3.20pm, for parents of pupils in Year 3. The purpose of this meeting is to provide you with information on how to use the ‘My Maths’ software which your child will use to complete their maths homework.
The meeting should only last approx. 15 minutes but will be beneficial when logging into My Maths.
Yours faithfully,
A Hogbin & S McGrath
Year 3 teachers
