We are Y3 and our class is called Maple. We have 30 children in our class and we are all aged between seven and eight. Our classroom is found on the first floor of the new extension, so we are lucky to be able to work in a bright, modern classroom.
Our teacher is Miss Forster. We have help from Miss Shuttleworth and Abby.
Our topic for this term is ‘Natural Disasters'. This will involve, looking at some of the biggest disasters that have happened around the world (earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions), and in particular locating famous volcanoes.
In DT we will be designing, making and evaluating our own healthy snack. We will look into the new sugar tax and discuss why lower sugar products are important. After this we will design and make our own product, then evaluate its effectiveness.
In art, we will be focusing on 'still art'. We will be looking at different artist like Carl Warner and trying to replicate some of his work. We will then create our own style of still art by drawing different fruit and vegetables in charcoal.
Our scientific work focuses on the Human Body. We will look at the importance of a balanced diet and how different athletes have different diets. Also, we will look at the different parts of the body; including bones and muscles.
Our class book is 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' by CS Lewis. We will create setting and character descriptions, newspapers, letters, recounts and biography all based around this story.
This year we are having a big focus on reading and we would all greatly appreciate your support with this. Together, we can help the children understand how important reading is to support them not only in all areas of the curriculum, but also in life. Your child will get their levelled book like always, however will also get a book of their choice which may be too hard for them to read alone. We thought it would be great to use this book as a bedtime story, to help the children to become immersed into all different genres of book which will hopefully support their independent reading.
In computing we will be focusing on E-safety. We will look into how to keep ourselves safe on the internet.
In RE we will focusing on Islam. We look at different traditions within this religion and some of the stories that are within the Quran.
In PE will be focusing on gymnastics. We will look at different rolls, jumps and balances and put them into sequences.
In Year 3 we start to learn Spanish! How exciting! This term we will be learning how to say our names, age and how we are all in Spanish!
