Welcome to Year 3
In Year 3, we have three classes - one based at the Fernwood site and two in Balderton.
Members of staff in Year 3:
Our topics this year are:-
Focus on healthy, balanced diets; our skeleton and muscles. We end the term by making (and trying) our own healthy food.
This topic is based on a science focus of forces and magnets, and we will be reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes in our English lessons. For this term's homework project, we will asking you to create your very own robots!
A history focus this term, looking at important geographical and historical features of the period/place as well as what life would have been like for Ancient Egyptians. We will be making some jewellery and art inspired by the Egyptians, and listening to World music.
This is a new topic. We will be finding out about the weather and climate in the Mediterranean, as well as learning how it is reported. We will do map work and look at life in a Mediterranean country. To finish off our topic, we will be working together to produce an advert for a holiday in the Med!
During this term, Year 3 will be flexing their green fingers and growing some plants from seeds. We will also look at different parts of plants and flowers and do some creative floral art work. Our English work will be based on instructional writing, which we will also link in with computing to create photo stories.
Our final topic this year is another history based one, this time learning about Ancient Greece, with a particular focus on both Greek mythology and the Olympics. We will be tasting Greek food and playing games based on the Greeks that you have made at home.
