Year 3

Welcome to Hazel and Willow  classes

The teachers in Year 3 are Neil Bourne (Hazel Class) and Eve Mehtar (Willow Class) 

General information:

This is what we have been doing this term:

For International Day Year 3 children used the laptops and Google Earth to look at iconic places of interest around the world such as Big Ben, London, Eiffel Tower, Paris (France) Statue of Liberty, New York (America) Sydney Opera House (Australia) Taj Mahal, Agra (India) Statue of Christ the Redeemer, Rio (Brazil) Horseshoe Falls, Niagara (Canada) Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italy) Pyramids, Giza (Egypt) Mount Vesuvius (Italy). They also used it to locate and look more closely at Holly Park School, and their own address within the United Kingdom. The children in Hazel Class also made Khatam clay tiles as part of their art work on sculpture. Khatam tiles are from Iran. They used Islamic art patterns to decorate them.

At the beginning of the spring term Year 3 completed their topic on volcanoes and earthquakes (what makes them work and where in the world they are located) with a virtual workshop from Geobus. They then began studying their main topic this term: The Romans and their influence in Britain. This has been the focus of their writing this term. To finish the topic they will take part in a Roman workshop led by ‘History off the Page’ after the Easter break.

In science Year 3 have been studying skeletons and healthy eating and in DT have been designing and preparing a fruit salad.

Year 3  have been looking at the work of artist Andy Goldsworthy and creating their own pieces of work using natural materials they collected.

Here’s what we got up to in the first term:

Year 3’s topic this term is focused on pre-history – in particular the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. The children visited the Museum of London in November where they explored the Pre-history and Roman galleries. In science they have been learning about rocks and to tie in with this the children have taken part in a science curriculum day on rocks and fossils run by GeoBus. They have also had a series of netball sessions run by Non-Stop Action as part of their outdoor PE curriculum. Year 3 have begun rehearsing for their nativity show at the end of term.
