Year 3

We find ourselves in the very unusual situation of having to ask the children to work at home for the coming weeks.

As a team, year 3 will be contactable via our year group email:

yr3.staff@warrenparkapps.co.uk

This will be checked daily during term time and between the hours of 9am and 3pm.  If you have any questions regarding the workbook or the home learning pack, drop us a line and we will do our best to support you with an answer.


To help support your child at home please view our

Welcome to Year 3

Visitors from Monkey World

Monkey World

This week, we were extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to have a visit from the Education Team at Monkey World. The workshop linked with the National Curriculum and was a great way to enrich our Rainforest topic. Ali talked about their Orang-utans, the work that Monkey World – Ape Rescue Centre undertakes and the plight of the orang-utans in the wild.

Also, as we wanted to support Monkey World’s ‘Great Ape-eal’, we presented Ali with a range of treats for their amazing apes.

We are really proud that Ali thoroughly enjoyed her trip to Warren Park who messaged to say –

As she didn’t have time to answer all of our questions during her visit, Ali and the amazing Monkey World Team kindly sent us a video message to answer our enquiries. Thank you Ali!

Rainforests

Rainforests

We were so moved by Iceland’s advert ‘There’s a Rang-Tan in my bedroom’ that we decided to create our own audio book to share the story with you all.

In computing, we have created our own photomontage to illustrate our feeling towards the devastation currently going on in our rainforests.

Science

Science

In Science, we dissected a flower and learnt about the different parts of a plant.

The flower’s job is to create seeds so that new plants can be grown. Flowers are made up of lots of parts that work together to make seeds.

Dragons

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower

This half term, as you already know, we have been learning about ‘Our European Neighbours’. As a cross-curricular link to this, we have created some Art work of the Eiffel Tower. First, we used watercolour paint to create the sky. Then, we used our Maths symmetry skills, along with our sketching skills, to draw one half of the Eiffel Tower. Finally, we used a printing technique to mix different shades of green and, using a sponge, printed some bushes. The children were extremely proud of their work and, although they found the drawing quite challenging, we think that they did a fantastic job! Well done, Year 3

European Neighbours

Our European Neighbours

Our new Geography topic this half term is ‘Our European Neighbours’. Together, we learnt the 7 continents of the world and where Europe is located. Then, we learnt some of the countries in Europe and discussed their flags, currency and famous landmarks. The children, in pairs, were given a landmark to make and research using resources around the classroom. Here are some photos of their creative ideas. Remember to test your child at home to see if they can remember all of the continents and give you some facts about some of the countries in Europe!

LO: To create and debug algorithms to draw patterns.

In computing, we have created and debugged algorithms to draw regular polygons. First, we used the basic commands in Scratch to move and draw. Then, we further developed our algorithms using the “repeat” command. After that, we developed our skills to create algorithms to draw patterns, change colour and add sound effects!

LO: To create and debug algorithms to draw patterns.

This week, we were given the blocks needed to create patterns with octagons and pentagons but we needed to calculate the correct variables to create our desired results.
