Class Information Booklet
Welcome to Year 3
In our topic work we have learning about World War One, focusing on Remembrance Day and The Christmas Day Truce. We have also been learning about Belgium as this was a country significant in World War 1. In Technology we made poppy crosses and carried them down to the Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday. We designed and made our own war medals from clay which we then decorated. Some of us also made poppy pompoms.
In P.E. we have been attending Hoops for tennis coaching. We really enjoyed these sessions and our tennis skills have greatly improved.
“ I enjoyed tennis. I can now hit the ball over the net”. Chantelle
“I enjoyed learning about the people in World War 1 who played football on Christmas Day” Lewis
Autumn Term 1
We have all settled into the juniors really well and now feel very grown up. We have been learning a lot of new things this half term.
In P.E. Mr Thompson has been teaching us new hockey skills. Fortunately the weather has been kind to us and we have been able to go outside. We have even managed to play a few small team games.
In our topic work we have learning about World War One, focusing on the use of animals in the war. Our reading area is themed around World War One and we have enjoyed having some quiet reading time in there.
In Art we have been learning the skill of marbling. We really enjoyed this because it is messy.
“I have enjoyed year 3 so far and I have liked everything.” Max
“ I enjoyed using the marbling inks because the pictures look nice and cool.” Jessica
“ I have enjoyed making up my own silly sentences in poetry.” Jackson
Autumn Term 2
This half term has been extremely busy! We have visited Hoops to learn how to play tennis. Everyone really enjoyed it.
"I really enjoyed tennis, especially on the last week when we had to play a one to one challenge and I was unbeaten" Brody.
In other PE lessons we worked on basic skills and some of our class were chosen to represent the school at a PE skills competition.
In English we learned all about play scripts and how to write them.
In mathematics we looked at using two digit numbers and explored using them in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
In music we learned about pitch and how to breathe when singing. This came in very handy when we were learning all the songs for our Christmas show!
In science we looked at rocks and how different rocks are formed.
