Spring 2019

Topic - The Prehistoric World

 Our topic this term has been very exciting - The Prehistoric World! We have been learning all about dinosaurs, the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and fossils. As part of our topic, we spent time researching our favourite dinosaurs and recording information about them. We then wrote non-chronological reports during our English lessons and put them together in 'Year 3's Dinosaur Encyclopaedia.' We also completed a teamwork activity where we had to work together to recreate a dinosaur skeleton using tissue paper - this required good communication skills!

In February, we also went on a trip to the Natural History Museum in Oxford. We took part in a Dinosaur Detectives’ workshop, where we had to work out how the dinosaurs lived using clues from their fossils and bones. We then had some time to complete a trail round the museum and to go and look at the exhibits that really interested us. Our adults were very proud of our mature behaviour and enthusiasm during the day!

 

 

Easter Assembly

During the Spring Term, we performed our Easter and Spring Assembly to the school and our parents. We made papier-mache Easter eggs during our art lessons (and even managed to keep the classroom clean!) and then decorated them with symbols of Spring. We also learnt two songs and performed them loudly and clearly during the assembly. Miss Baldoza and Mrs Murray were incredibly proud!

Science Day and Maths Day

We have also been lucky enough to have had some curriculum days this term. During Science Day, we had an intriguing show from Science Oxford, all about the science behind magic tricks. We left wanting to try some of them at home! Back in our classroo, we were learning about neurons and how they work in our brains. We then made our own neurons and wrote our favourite memories on them. 

Maths Day was very exciting as we participated in an 'escape box' workshop. We were put into teams and had to solve clues to find the code to the lock on a box. When we opened the box, there were more clues and more boxes. The clues tested different areas of our maths skills and we had to work as a team to try and open as many boxes as possible.

 

Spanish

This term, we have really been enjoying our Spanish lessons with Mrs Harwood. We are getting so good at pronouncing the words correctly and our Spanish accents are improving all the time! We especially enjoyed learning all about the Spanish Carnival celebration in February and making our own colourful masks.

 

Autumn 2018

English 

In English, Year 3 have been writing narratives based on a story called ‘The Black Hat.’ All sorts of magical creatures flew out of the hat and put on a performance, and we showed our range of amazing vocabulary when writing descriptions. We had lots of fun creating our own magic hats and making up new magical creatures. As part of our Ancient Egypt topic we also wrote some incredibly gruesome instructions for mummification! We have also enjoyed sharing books with our class at the end of the day.

 

Topic

Our topic this term has been Ancient Egypt. We have impressed the adults in Year 3 with our enthusiasm, research at home and mature discussions. We have been learning about the pyramids, the pharaohs, mummification and even made Egyptian necklaces using paper plates and pasta. We have read a story called ‘Secrets of a Sun King’ which we found very exciting! We also learnt how to write our names in hieroglyphics.

   

PE

In PE we have been developing our football skills. We have learnt how to control the ball successfully and have been improving our defence skills. Now we are in Key Stage 2, we are allowed to go on the climbing equipment on the playground. We are getting very good at remembering the rules and taking turns, as well as showing how strong we are on the monkey bars!
