Celebrating Our Success

In Year 3, we love it when we can share successes and achievements. 

Here are our recent class champion winners and superhero value winners for the value of positivity

 

Well done to Evie, Shay, Ellie and Taite for your outstanding work this half term.

Homework

This half term year 3 are asked to complete weekly homework tasks based on the rainforest. Children will also continue receiving weekly maths homework which links to the in class learning topic as well as weekly spellings to learn which are tested on a Monday.

 

Year 3 have been enjoying their first topic of place value in Maths. We have been using the deans and place value counters to represent different 3 digit numbers. The children worked together to find the total amounts.

 

 

Year 3 really enjoyed their Mindfulness session with Mrs Plant and Mrs Wedge. The children learnt different ways to help them stay calm and relax.

PE

 

Year 3 have been developing their stretches and dances by using different effective styles of dance.

 

Warbutons the bread company came to visit year 3 to talk about healthy eating and good nutrition which we learnt about in Science. We then got to make our own healthy sandwiches, taste test new bread products and we learnt about the Warbutons business. It was an interesting insight in to the business as well as a delicious morning!

English 

During the Spring term, Year 3's new topic is Rainforests! We will be learning about all things to do with the rainforest in English, Guided Reading, History and Geography!
In English we will be working on the book 'Into the Jungle' by Katherine Rundell. It's a modern take on Rudyard Kipling's original The Jungle Book which focuses on some of his popular characters including Mowgli, Shere Khan and Baloo..

 

Year 3 braved the cold to complete today's walk with members of Walsall's road safety team. They have completed classroom based sessions learning about all aspects of road safety and enjoyed today's practical session to complete their course.

Year 3 have been collecting sweet and chocolate wrappers at home over the past few weeks to be able to make their own collage of a popular Birmingham building. They have had the choice from Birmingham New Street Station, The Cadbury factory or the new Birmingham Library.
Children have started their collage, sketching out their building underneath and then cutting out small bits of sweet and chocolate wrappers to put onto their buildings which will eventually make an amazing collage!

Science

 

Year 3 had tremendous fun making a full human skeleton today in their groups. We have been learning about how the human body has over 200 bones including 26 in their feet and 27 in their hands alone!
The children have been learning about the 3 different types of skeleton, an endoskeleton, an exoskeleton and a hydrostatic skeleton!
We've also learnt that not every living creature has a backbone. Those without backbones are called invertebrates. Those that do have a back bone are called vertebrates.

 

Year Three enjoyed raising money for Children in Need today. 3A were worn out keeping fit for Pudsey.
