Welcome to Year Three
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.
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.
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.
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.
