Welcome to Year 3’s Class Page
We are going to be covering lots of new topics this year, so please scroll through and see what we’ve been up to!
In the Autumn so far, we have been learning all about Heroes and Villains! We have been reading 101 Dalmatians and comparing it to the film, identifying the similarities and differences. In art and DT we have made our own finger puppets to create our own superheroes. This topic has been extremely fun for the children’s imagination and has help them be creative in their writing!
Our first topic this year is ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’, which as you can guess, is all about yummy food! We have been reading different types of recipes and trying a range of foods. Our focus book linked to this topic, has been Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The story has sparked our imagination to create our own character that goes into the factory. Children used fantastic adjectives to describe their character. We used examples of recipes to write instructions on how to make our own sweet treats! In Geography, we have been looking into Fair trade products and where our food comes from around the world. In Art, we looked at how artists use fruit and vegetables to create landscape pictures.
In Maths, we have been exploring place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We have used base 10, counters and cubes to put into context our understanding. We have enjoyed working in groups and pairs to solve problems.
