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:-
Where would you chose to live - Ancient Egypt or Ancient Greece?
A history focus this term studying two ancient civilisations. We will be looking at important geographical and historical features of the period/place as well as what life would have been like for the Ancient Egyptians and comparing this to the life of the Ancient Greeks. We will be making some jewellery and art inspired by the Egyptians, and listening to World music and having a Greek day. The homework projects will be to research Ancient Egyptian Gods and then later in the term to create a game based on your knowledge of the Ancient Greek culture.
Can you feel the force?
This topic is based on the science focus of forces and magnets and a geographical focus on the Mediterranean including volcanoes. We will be reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes in our English lessons and writing weather reports. We will be finding out about the weather and climate in the Mediterranean and looking at map work and life in a Mediterranean country For the first homework project, we will asking you to create your very own robots! Later in the term having researched volcanoes and Pompeii we would love to listen to a poem that you have written on the topic.
Eat well, grow well and 'bee' happy!!
The focus of this work is science based. We will look at healthy, balanced diets; our skeleton and muscles. During the term, Year 3 will also 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 around 'The Incredible Book Eating Boy' and creating a gardening magazine. We will end the term by making (and trying) our own healthy food. The homework for this topic will be to create a healthy recipe book and to create a miniature garden.
