A big welcome to Year 3 from Mrs Thompson and Mrs Arnott
Year 3 will need to bring their P.E kits on a Thursday and Friday
Hello to Spring 1
To begin our Ancient Egyptian topic, children were put into small groups and given times of history based on their prior learning (i.e. Stone Age, Great Fire of London, Florence Nightingale). They had to work in a team to order the eras correctly in chronological order.
We will do this again at the end of the half term to see if they've retained their knowledge.
Year 3 have had a very busy couple of weeks with Mrs Thompson starting our new measurement topic in Maths. We've been measuring lots of different things both inside and outside. Year 3 have also been converting centimetres to millimetres and metres to centimetres. We also played a game of bingo where they had to be the bingo master and convert the measurements!
One of Year 3's learning objective this half term is to try some weaving! Look how fantastic they're looking already.! This required a lot of patience and not to give up!
Physical and Human Features
Year 3 have been learning all about physical and human features. They know physical features are natural and human features are man-made. We know that Adel Church is a human feature and Adel Beck is a physical feature. We then used an atlas to find where some other well known features were i.e. Ben Nevis and the Humber bridge.
In Year 3, we are learning to use an atlas correctly. Today our task was to find cities in England. We tried our best and will continue to improve!
Year 3 have been busy already first week back focusing on growth mindset. They were asked to make an origami butterfly by themselves. They came across many challenges and at times found it quite difficult but they did not give up! They kept trying and learnt that it's good to make mistakes because they can learn from them.
They helped each other and were very resilient - what a great start to the new year!
Children in Year 3 have been using different resources to partition hundreds, tens and ones.
In Year 3, children have been learning to use different openers to start sentences. We've based our sentences on the book, 'Stig of the Dump'. They created some fantastic sentences!
How did Neolithic farmers live?
Children have been learning all about the Stone Age this week and answering lots of different enquiry questions. They are now able to compare hunter-gatherers to farmers.
