Hi Year 3,

 

We hope you are all well and have been enjoying the glorious sunshine this week. Hopefully things are starting to feel more normal after a week at home: it has felt strange not seeing you all and we miss you!

 

We have attached some learning for you to have a go at next week before the 2 week Easter break begins. Once you have completed the planning sheet attached, please have a go at writing your own Tinga Tale. Write it in draft first, then make any changes to it that you think will improve it (ask someone else for their advice too if it helps) and then write it up in best with some illustrations. Don't forget to email us any completed stories and we will put some on here for you all to share.

 

We have updated My Maths and Spelling shed too, so try and have a go at what's on there as it compliments your learning for this week. Email us with any questions or just to say hi and we will get back to you as quick as we can. Have a lovely weekend.

 

From the Year 3 team

If you want to improve your drawing skills, go onto youtube and type in 'How to draw- Steve Harpster.' You will find step by step tutorials for how to draw a variety of different animals and cartoon characters. I've attached one below that me and my 2 girls did earlier in the week. Hope you enjoy it like we did.

Happy Courage Day!

Happy Courage Day! 1

There are many people across the world at the moment who are showing great courage to help others and keep others safe. In a way they are our superheroes, putting themselves before others.

Your task is to design your own superhero and a medal for that superhero.

Is there someone you have seen or heard about on television that you could use as inspiration for your design?

Send in your designs and let's create a superhero gallery! 

You can use the attached sheets for ideas or just draw your own!

What are you reading?

We would like to know what book you are reading at the moment.

Send in your current book to the class email and we will put them onto the website.

What is the most popular book in year 3?

Current Reading Books in Year 3

Using Espresso

There are 2 parts to the Espresso website:

-Espresso, where they can look up activities and videos about their curriculum split into subjects.

-Espresso coding , where the children can complete coding activities.

See the document below for more information on how to access and navigate the website.

Using the Pobble 365 website

Pobble 365 is a website full of thought provoking pictures. In school we use the pictures in many ways: to start stories, to promote discussion about the pictures and to stimulate creative writing, to name just a few.

Every week we will choose a picture from Pobble 365 that we would like the children to think about. There are some activities and questions that go with each picture but even if you just talk about the picture with your child, that is fine. Ask them what is happening in the picture, discuss any emotions it makes them feel, or what might happen next...

To continue with our superhero theme, our picture this week features Superman.

Spring Term in Year 3

Our topic this term is 'African Adventures'. Have a look at our knowledge organiser to find out what the children will be learning.

Here is our Autumn term curriculum brochure.

Year 3 visited Charmouth Heritage Centre on Monday 14th October.

The weather wasn't on our side but that did not stop the children having a fantastic, if damp, day.

The children began the day by finding our more about our beautiful Jurassic coast and why Charmouth is such an important place to visit. 

They were then shown more about fossils and fossil hunting. The staff at the centre showed them not only what fossils they might find on the beach but also tips to help them find them!

The fossil hunting on the beach was very exciting! We found lots of different types of fossils. Even though it was wet and windy, the children were determined to take home a momento of their visit!

Our Summer Term topic is Spectacular Stone Age and Ruling Romans!

Here are some ideas for Roman Day on Thursday 11th July.

To make a tunic boys could just use a large T-shirt and put a belt around the middle. Plain ones work best.

Or a Toga!

There is no obligation to dress up , but it does help the children feel a part of the whole experience.

Sea Otters are doing really well with their swimming and it is great to see their positive attitude shining through

We enjoyed our CR8 day. We co-operated to make our dinosaurs.

"Flight" was the inspiration for Year3 Arts Week 16-20 October 17

Children learnt about the Wright Brothers, the Montgolfier Brothers and Amelia Earhart.  Sea Otters made junk model planes as well as designing and making their own bi-planes using wooden pegs and lolly sticks. They designed their own Hot Air Balloons and made 3D models, they also collaged aeroplanes and designed bird wings using paint drops and blowing the paint with a straw.  We also had a paper plane competition and a science experiment to see who could keep their egg from breaking when dropped from a height! The children had a chance to draw a "birds eye view" perspective for the windows of the aeroplane we created in Sea Otters classroom.

2017 / 2018

Our new and exciting year started off with a trip back in time to the Land Of The Dinosaurs!

Both Year 3 Classes were thrown back into History through the amazingly fantastic Science Dome today. The children were taught about the earliest forms of earth and how it has changed over the last 245 million years. They were introduced to Dinosaurs through the interactive 360 degree display inside the dome and were immersed into a new world with smiles and fascination all round. The children also watched a feature film, 'Dinosaurs @ Dusk' where they took to the skies and discovered the origins of flight following a teenage girl, Lucy, and her father, who share a passion for flying and all things that fly. The children witnessed paragliding over the countryside, and experienced the soaring of pterosaurus and the ancestors of the modern bird; the feathered dinosaurs. Children were also given insights into continental drift, proper motion of stars, asteroids and impacts, extinctions and the congvergent development of flight amoung species.

 

All In all a brilliant experience the children were 'wowed' by.


 

 

 

Sports Day was a rather hot affair.....

On Thursday 15th we had a visit from a scientist, Ian Dunne, who came to teach us about different science concepts through experiments and interesting explanations.  

To say the pupils were enthralled is an understatement!!
