Welcome to Year 3
Our class teacher is Mr Moss.
Miss Calvert is our class Teaching Assistant.
Here is the overview of this week's learning.
As always, I will send work out daily via Class Dojo and I would love you to send me some photos of what you and your family have been up to.
I know it is not always easy to complete the work but please do try and complete it all as it will help you be ready for Y4.
Take care everyone!

Computing - We are Opinion Pollsters|
In Year 3 we are currently busy creating our own Questionnaires with the aim of discovering how healthy we are. As soon as they have been designed we will be posting them here for others to complete, stay tuned!
Caravaggio Inspired Paintings|
We looked carefully at the fruit pictures painted by Caravaggio many times and tried to re-create this with some of our own ideas too.
We sketched our pictures with pencil and began to mix our own appropriate colours to create our fruit bowl paintings.
We used gentle strokes with the brushes for effect.
Here are some of our completed pictures on our classroom wall.
Clay Pepper Sculptures|
First we softened the clay in our hands and made a sphere shape.
Next we used our hands and tools to mould into the shape of the pepper.
We looked carefully at the details and added stalks, seeds and textures to our sculptures.
What was tricky about working with the clay?
What did you enjoy most about making your sculpture?
Drawing peppers in charcoal|
For our art work this term linked to our topic 'How does your garden grow?' We have been using charcoal to make observational drawings of peppers. We used some of the techniques we learnt whilst using HB pencils for sketching last term.
We experimented using stippling, cross hatching, contour hatching and smudging.
You can see Khloe here using smudging to create her picture.
Sienna is using light and dark strokes to create the shape of her pepper.
Riley loked carefully to add all the seeds he could see inside the pepper.
Our Super Homework|
Juwairiyah has made a fantastic Iron Man for her homework.
Would you like to live in the Stone Age?|
We made notes comparing life in the Stone Age to modern life. We used our notes to create an expressive discussion. Have a listen!
Class Reading book|
This half-term, we are reading the brilliant Stig of the Dump by Clive King.
We have enjoyed finding out how Barney meets Stig and how their friendship develops.
We will be using the book to write our own short stories, find out about life in the Stone Age and to learn how Stone Age people lived during our trip to Eldon Forest.
Our trip to Eldon Forest has been inspired by Stig of the Dump.
We will be using everyday materials to build shelters and design new inventions that would impress a Stone Age visitor!
See our photos below.
Our trip to Eldon forest.|
As part of our learning from our Literacy topic 'Stig of the Dump' we visited Eldon forest and learnt a bit about how they used mud in the Stone Age to build things.
Mrs Hayes helped us to dig a pit to mix our mud and dry grass in to help build our very own fire pit.
It was a messy job, but we found it fun.
Mrs Hayes helped us to curve some branches to make a dome, to cover with the earth for our fire pit.
We smoothed the mud out on the top to create the curved shape.
We used our friend Sahira, a bed sheet and our muddy hands to create our very own cave art.
We printed our muddy hands around Sahira.
Sahira stood up and we had a fantastic silhouette.
We are enjoying learning how to play the recorder!
It is a woodwind instrument and we need to be able to move our fingers quickly.
Watch the video below to see our early lessons.
In Year 3 we LOVE to read!
Please tell me your favourite book and a special place you like to read.
The special place might be curled up on your couch, under your bed covers with a torch, in the back garden or a favourite quiet spot somewhere.
