Year 3

Welcome to year 3’s class page

Our last topic of this year is Mighty Metals! In English, we have been exploring the book ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes and the children are currently writing instructions on how to make a robot! In science, we have been learning all about forces and magnets. Last week, we took out an investigation, testing the speed and distance of an object of different surfaces. Carrying on our practical learning, in D&T, we have also made magnet mazes, with the children choosing their object in the maze to find it’s prize!

As the children worked so hard learning about different predators around the world, they deserved a treat! We were very excited to welcome Trevor Hill and some of his interesting animals into school!

First Summer half term- Predators!

For the first summer half term, year 3 have been learning all about predators. We have been learning how to write non-chronological reports and leaflets in English, all about food chains and animals in science and have sketched different birds of prey in Art. Some of this fantastic work has been displayed on our year board in the hall, with an African theme.

Hill Walk 2017

The whole school thoroughly enjoyed the walk up the Malvern Hills on the last day of Spring term. The weather was beautiful and the children were very excited to wear our new school fluorescent jackets. Many thanks to all the helpers who came along with us!

Visit to Worcester Cathedral.

Year 3 loved their visit to the Cathedral. We learnt lots about our local history, as well as explored our topic graffiti in the old art form. The children were very proud of their art work!

World Book Day 2017!

The children thoroughly enjoyed coming into school as their favourite book characters. There were lots of modern day favourites as well as some old classics. Year 3 staff went with a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory theme!

In the first spring half term, Year 3 have been learning all about water in our topic ‘flow’. In Art, we explored river art, water drop collages and ‘arch’ bridges made from clay!
