Year 3

Our Year 3 Class Rules

 

We have agreed on these rules for our class together. 

Homework Activities

 

  • Weekly reading target (should be about 15 minutes at a time, minimum of 4 times a week).
  • Spellings for weekly test. These are displayed in your child's 'Home School Record'. Spellings are tested weekly on a Thursday.
  • Maths and/or English activity once a week.
  • DoodleMaths at least 3 times and at least 30 stars per week. This will be checked on a Monday.
  • ALL HOMEWORK MUST BE COMPLETED IN PENCIL AND NOT PEN.

 

Physical Education (P.E.)

 

Year 3 P.E. lessons will be on a Friday afternoon with Miss Barker, however please ensure that your child's kit is in school for the full week. This is just in case we have any timetable changes or any additional sporting activities. As we move further into the Autumn term, and the weather becomes less kind, your child will need to bring a full indoor and outdoor kit, including trainers, each week.

A Little Bit of Lowry 

 

Year 3 are looking at the artwork of L.S. Lowry. They have been forming opinions about his work, looking at the techniques he used to create them, as well as having a go at developing some of their own artwork adopting his style. The children have looked at many of Lowry's pieces of artwork. They had a go at 'jigsawing' some of his work back together. This task enabled them to look closely at the scenes he drew/painted and developed discussions around what name might have been given to each piece, similarities and differences between his work and looking at the finer details of what he depicted. 

 

                                    

 

The photographs below show the children working in their sketch books trying out hatching and cross-hatching as a way to show light and dark in their work.

 

                          

 

                                                                

                         

Animals Including Humans

 

Do you know what your body needs to be healthy? Year 3 do, so why not ask them about it? The children have looked at food groups and what foods they need to eat in order to maintain a healthy body. They each designed a 'balanced' healthy meal and then created a 3-dimensional model of it. 

 

                              

A Visit From the PDSA

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Steven who is a veterinary nurse with the PDSA. It was a fun morning and we learnt lots of things about how the charity supports all types of sick animals. He told us about what animals need to be healthy, and he even explain to us what happens during animal operations. The photos below show us pretending to be dogs, jumping around like frogs, and even operating on our pretend dog called Jess!
