Year Three

Our Creative Curriculum

Each term will focus around a creative theme:

Autumn – The Stone Age, Bronze Age and the Iron Age

Spring – The Ancient Egyptians

Summer – Extreme Earth

    

This term our topic has been Extreme Earth so the children have been learning all about Natural Disasters including volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis. They have found out about a major volcanic eruption in 1980 and produced newspaper reports retelling the main events.

Look at our amazing Volcanoes which the children made as part of their creative homework challenge! Oskars was edible!

      

We were very lucky to have author Rachael Lindsay come and work with us. We used some of her ideas to produced some fantastic free-verse poetry.

    

In Literacy we have also been reading adventure stories and focused on ‘The Tunnel’ by Anthony Browne. The children loved the story and wrote their own versions adding more in depth descriptions of the characters and settings.

    

In Science, we have been learning about plants and what helps them to grow. We investigated how water is transported and also set up an experiment with cress to see how different conditions affect how a plant will grow.

     

Last term some of our class made their First Holy Communion at St Josephs Church. It was a beautiful ceromony and we enjoyed cake afterwards. A huge thank you to Andre’s Aunt who made his gorgeous cake.

    

Following the recent events that have happened in Manchester and London, Year 3 have written some heartfelt prayers to all those affected.

      

Our aim in Year 3 is to make learning fun and creative as can be in a friendly, warm and loving environment. We aim high and encourage the children to blossom into confident independent learners who know that it is okay to make mistakes.
