Opal Class (Year 3)

Spring 1 

In English we have been reading 'Charlie and the Chocolate factory'. We invented a new child to visit the factory and a new room for them to explore. When you are in school check out our display next to the library. 

 

In Maths we have learnt how to measure using centimeters, meters and millimeters. We had fun measuring our own lines and even our own bodies! 

 

     

 

Autumn 2

Recently in PE we have learnt how to use the large equipment safely. We all enjoyed creating stretched shapes. 

        

 

                              

 

In Geography we have had fun explaining about the UK to our alien Motty! We have learnt the countries, capitals and regions as well as some landmarks.

     

We enjoyed playing these online games. Use the link to try them out at home.

We have really enjoyed learning about the Stone age in History. We linked our work to English following and writing instructions. We enjoyed the story ' How to wash a woolly mammoth' by Michelle Robinson. We made our own woolly mammoths and wrote instructions in a similar style. We were proud to act out the instructions in our recent class assembly.

Whilst learning about Stonehenge we debated why it was built. We had fun trying to build Stonehenge out of biscuits. It was very hard and helped us appreciate what an amazing engineering feat it is!

                     

 

 

 

 

Autumn 1 

Welcome to Opal class. We have all made a good start to the term and are getting used to some of the new routines in Year 3. 

In Maths we have been representing and partitioning numbers in different ways. 

  

 

We were inspired by Vincent van Gogh's 'Sunflowers',  we painted our own vase of sunflowers to celebrate Harvest festival. Look out for them at St Mary's Church over harvest time.
