Miss Willis

Yellow Brick Road

02/03/20 – 03/03/20

As part of reading week we had the Yellow Brick Road Drama Group in to do a workshop with us.

We explored the book Flat Stanley.

Art Week


Year three looked at observational drawings of landscapes for ‘Art Week’.  
Here are our final projects!

Poetry Week


Year three wrote their poem about one of their favourite stories, Flat Stanley! 

Science – Rocks


Our Science trip was to the graveyard. We were looking at how and why rocks change over time. On the way to the church

graveyard we looked at different rocks used for the different buildings. The children were able to identify the church

walls were limestone as they looked worn. We observed the range of rocks used for gravestones, naming any that they

knew, and also observed how damaged or worn they were and considered this in relation to their age. 

DT Week


We are doing Ancient Egypt in topic and our D&T topic is mechanical systems.

The children have researched and designed a shaduf which is a water system the

Egyptians used to get water from the river Nile to their crops. 



Year three’s most recent topic is ‘disaster’. This looks at volcanoes!

They got to make and set off a volcano.


Stones and Bones


A dinosaur had broken in to year 3 !! We began looking for evidence (bones and fossils) to see if we

could work out what kind of dinosaur it was. 

Art Week

03/09/19 – 06/09/19

In Year 3 we have been looking at Henri Matisse, the famous french artist. 

We began the week by researching Matisse and learning all about his life and his painting. 

Using brightly coloured card we created our own Matisse inspired artwork.
