Its the end of Autumn 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y3…………………….

Year 3 have had a fantastic start to the year, and we are really proud of the way they have adapted to the new school rules and routines. We have had a successful first half term full of action-packed learning.  

 

Writing: 

In Writing, we have been learning all about the features of a setting description and have used this information to write our own creative setting descriptions. To create our setting description, we allowed our imaginations to run wild by listening to a piece of music which allowed us to make magical and enchanting pictures in our heads. We then describe what we could see by using expanded noun phrases and describing our five senses. 

 

Geography: 

In Geography, our new topic has been about understanding the key geographical features of the United Kingdom. First, we learnt about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom and located these countries on a map. Next, we discovered that England is split into nine regions and that these regions are split into counties. We used geographical skills by using an eight-point compass to locate different counties on a map. We focused on the county that we live in, South Yorkshire. In addition, we have explored the key physical features of the UK including rivers, mountains and the ocean.

Its week 7 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y3…………………….

This week, Year 3 have been re-telling a set of fictional instructions in which they guided Little Red Riding Hood on her journey to Grandma's house using a story-map. They used imperative verbs and actions to perform each step and then innovated the story by adding expanded noun phrases and prepositions of time. We can't wait to see their writing next week!

Its week 7 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y3…………………….

 


Its week 5 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y3…………………….

This week in Year 3, after-school clubs started in full flow. In Art club, we looked at graffiti-style lettering and wrote our own names in the same style. We then used an ombre effect to add colour and make our art stand out. Well done to all the children who attended, and we'd love to see more faces joining next week for our first ever Still Life painting session. 

Its week 5 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y3…………………….
