Year 3

Fantastic Fun at Fishbourne!

Summer’s arrived! The sun shone brightly on the day of our trip to Fishbourne. It was a gloriously sunny and warm day.

The children had a fantastic day finding out more about the Romans and were able to enjoy lunch outside in the extensive grounds.

Please see some photos below.

Since returning we have finished our Roman topic and we are now focusing on the science of light – perfect if it’s sunny!

As our year comes to a close we have also prepared a list of 10 things that the children would like to do to extend their learning.  It’s an exciting list of activities which we are sure will get your children talking when you ask them about their day.

Spring Term Update

Spring Term Update

Wow, what an amazing term! The children have continued to work very hard and we have done some incredible work.

In English we have been writing newspaper reports. First, we read and understood a newspaper report about an emperor vanishing at sea and used it to help us write our own report about a famous person going missing. After that, we created our own newspaper report about Queen Boudicca of the Iceni tribe which linked with our history topic on the Roman invasion of Britain. The children really immersed themselves in the learning and can now be described as budding reporters.

In Maths we have been learning about fractions. We have been looking at ½ , ¼ and 1/10s. It has been amazing to see the children use their understanding of sharing and applying it to this subject. They are now starting to find 1/10 of numbers under one hundred e.g. 1/10 of 4 being 4. If time allows, keep practising at home.

Our Geography topic has been all about India. The children started the subject by trying new foods from the sub-continent. There were a few funny faces as they tried things like lime pickle, but they loved the poppadums and mango chutney.

In science we learnt about forces. We focused on pushes, pulls, friction and magnetism. The children had a great time investigating with magnets and had a fantastic time learning when at the Intech centre in Winchester.

It’s been an excellent term and we are now excitedly preparing for Summer. Let’s hope that we have plenty of sunshine whilst we continue to make progress and enjoy our learning.

Autumn Term Update

Autumn Term Update

During this term, we have worked really hard whilst ensuring that we keep enjoying our learning.

Our English work this term has been focused on dragons. First, we learnt a story about a dragon called Smok and a cobbler called Krak and used it to help us write our own defeating the monster stories. After that, we found out about a dragon that had been spotted in the local area. We wrote a set of instructions for Miss Tester to trap the dragon. This was a success and the dragon has been sent to a zoo in Uzbekistan.

In Maths, we have learnt a new way to add 3 digit numbers – column addition. The children have worked really hard and are rightly proud of how well they have picked up this new skill.

Our Geography topic has been all about Europe. We have compared how our European neighbours live and are currently creating a fact file about European countries.

It’s been an excellent term and we are now excitedly preparing for Christmas. On that note, we wish everyone a wonderful festive season and a very prosperous new year.

The Year 3 Team

Welcome to Year 3

We hope you all had a happy and relaxing summer. We are so excited about what this year will bring for our children. We have lots of exciting things planned including school trips, a variety of interesting topics and additional activities such as swimming.

Your children have made an amazing start to the year and are working really hard in lessons whilst having a great time. During our first week we did made spaghetti and marshmallow towers. The children had a great time and show that they are excellent team players.

In English we are reading and writing stories about heroes and monsters. In maths we are working with numbers from 1 – 1000.

Our first afternoon activity is Plants and the children are currently investigating what happens to plants if we deprive them of things such as water and light.

As always, if you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to catch a member of the year 3 team at any time, we are always happy to help.
