hazel and willowThe teachers in Year 3 are Neil Bourne (Hazel Class) and Eve Mehtar (Willow Class). In 2017-18 the teachers in Y3 will remain the same)

Y3 had a fantastic activity day at Trent Park.

Y3 had a very informative trip to the local temple.

At the conclusion of their Roman topic Year 3 had a Roman Day with History Off the Page. The children had an opportunity to experience what life was like in Roman Britain. In the morning they children had the opportunity to make things such as mosaics, frescoes and to make Roman charms. To finish off the day there was a great feast with entertainment provided by actors , dancers and a display by Roman soldiers.

 

Willow Class did an excellent assembly about the Romans. Here are a couple of video clips (another one here) of their work. 

Year 3 had a D&T day. The children made moving models using pivots and levers. Here is some of their work.

Our Y6 Digital Leaders have been going round the school to find out what the children are doing. Here are their reports:

  • In year 3 they have been focusing on the Romans. The children have been writing letters to home as if they were Roman soldiers. In maths they have been learning about fractions and number lines, doubling large numbers. Willow class have been practising really hard on their Romans assembly. In Science they have been looking at the Human Body and naming different parts. They have been learning about Roman gods and using the computers to make Powerpoints about Roman Gods. Soon the year 3 children will begin to go swimming every Wednesday. They’re very excited to start.
  • In science, Year 3 have been learning about healthy food and how to keep fit. They have been practising for their class assembly which is about the Romans, because it is their topic.For their Roman topic, Year 3’s maths has been linked to it. They have been doing word problems all about the Romans. Also in maths they have been doing fractions. In RE, they were writing prayers. They have also been learning about different religions.

You can see lots of pictures from our nativity here.

Year 3’s major topic this term has been the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages . They have been learning about the Animals, Tools, Homes and Art. The topic was reinforced with a trip to the Museum of London where the children got to see and learn about various Artefacts from pre history, these included, weapons, jewellery and the first coins. The children and staff had a great time and learnt a lot. Recently the children have been rehearsing hard for the Nativity.

Here is some of the work we have been doing this term.

On Thursday 3rd November Year 3 visited the Museum of London as part of their topic on Prehistory. They visited the gallery called London before London to find out more about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. They also visited the Roman gallery in advance of their topic on the Romans later on in the year.

Willow Class have also been doing some Andy Goldsworthy art.

Y3 Online Safety

The Y3 parent workshop about online safety was very well attended. Children and parents had fun working on a variety of activities. The main theme was about keeping passwords safe, not sharing them and making strong passwords.

The children in Year 3 have been trying to make a difference to the world by participating in the ‘World’s Largest Lesson’.

They have been learning about gender equality around the world and discussed some important issues.  The children were amazed by the true story of Malala Yousafzai and the difference she has made in the world just by speaking up about what she believed in.

The children completed a survey of their local community and then made a poster highlighting the ratio of community influencers and decision makers who are male and female.  We discovered that gender equality affects us closer to home than we first predicted.​
