Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to the Year 3 Home Page!

We have an exciting year of learning ahead of us. Our main topics will be:

  • Location, Location, Location
  • Map skills around the UK
  • Stone Age and Iron Age
  • The Romans

Curriculum Overview – Year 3 (2021-2022) 

This half term our D.T. learning has been all about creating a healthy meal. Each class worked together to wash, peel and chop a selection of vegetables that were then combined to make a delicious healthy soup. The taste testing of the soup was a particular highlight of the afternoon with lots of 10/10 ratings being given! Our Year 3s now have the skills to chop vegetables safely using the bridge and claw grip and can also peel vegetables safely. Some of our Year 3 chefs were so inspired that they then went home and cooked the recipe for their families!

     

 

   

 

In music we have learned all about the pentatonic scale and then explored different combinations of the notes in a variety of sequences. This was quite a tricky task that required lots of resilience but also led to great feelings of achievement when we were able to perform to one another at the end of the unit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our geography unit has developed our understanding of maps and of the country we live in. We particularly enjoyed the counties challenge where we worked collaboratively to find and label counties across the U.K. We spent some time researching cities and then made fantastic posters to share the knowledge we had acquired.

We have had great fun exploring different combinations of media in art, reflecting the work of Jo Bressloff. We used a range of techniques to create our final pieces including sketches of our school grounds, water colour washes, map selections and detailed paint work. We were really proud of the final outcomes and were really proud of the resilience, risk taking and creativity we saw throughout this learning.

We have just begun an exciting topic in Science about Solids, Liquids and Gases. We have investigated different materials and what makes them a solid, liquid or gas and used drama to explore how particles behave in the different states of matter.
