Our Term

There are lots of exciting things to look forward to in Year 3 this half term. Our topic is recycling and we will be learning about how we can look after our environment. Children will have the opportunity to create sculptures from rubbish, learn about where our rubbish goes once we throw it away and get involved in making a change. You can view the learning challenges for this topic here.

Last half term in Year 3 we really enjoyed our topic all about the Great Plague. We created a museum to share what we had learnt with the rest of the school. We made flowers and lucky charms to give put so that people were protected from the plague and we also invited our parents into class so they could see what we had been learning. The pictures from our museum are below.

In science this half term we are learning about light. We will learn how light travels, how shadows are created and which objects are light sources or reflectors.

Our literacy lessons will be focused on writing based on the novel The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

Class Dojo 

We are working hard to earn lots of dojo points this half term and reach our class target of 5000 points! Our class is now open for parents to join. If you have any issues please contact Miss Hodgson.
