Welcome to Year 3
Here you will find updates of what we have been learning about in class and links to help with homework.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope your first week of home learning has been enjoyable. I have attached a list of further activities for the coming weeks. David Walliams is doing a free audio story everyday this is available on https://bit.ly/AudioElevenses . We have been reading Gangsta Granny for guided reading which is one of David Walliams’ books.There are also extra maths resources available on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/
In Yr 3 we have done several diary entries. If your child wants to, they could create their own diary of their time at home during these difficult times. They might want to add pictures or do it as a video diary. If they then saved it, they could share it with their own children and grandchildren in years to come.
Thank you, stay safe and hope to see all the children back in school soon.
Mrs Warran and Mrs McWiggan.

For our History topic in Spring 2 we are looking at the Stone Age
The children have worked on fact files and made models depicting the Stone Age era. We will be doing work reinforce the children’s work that they did at home.
D&T Day – Vegetable Soup
For our D&T day we used various skills which covered different curriculums. We used our literacy skills when writing out our Recipes using imperative verbs. We used our Science knowledge when deciding on our ingredients which linked to our Healthy Eating topic. We used our maths skills when measuring out the stock for our soup.
We also learnt new skills. We learnt how to peel, chop grate and cut vegetables safely. We used the bridge method and the claw method for cutting our vegetables.
We created our own D&T booklets too.
P.S. Our soup was delicious!
In Science we have learning about Forces. For our experiment the children had to predict which surface had the most friction. They then tested cars on different surfaces. The results were then evaluated.
P4C The Egyptian Cinderella Debate
We discussed the bad things and the good things that happened in the story to Rhodopis. We discussed the fact that the author did not confirm that a marriage took place. We then decided in groups which statement went into a positive or negative way for Rhodopis, then we debated our reasons for putting them in these categories.
