Summer 2 Term Learning - 2018

In our last half term in Year 3 we have continued learning about rainforests. We have made posters to explain why you shouldn’t cut down trees and have thought of ways to help conserve the rainforest. Linked to our topic we talked about plants in science. We have been studying plants in and around the playground and know what the different parts of plants do.

During our maths lessons we have learned how to measure length, mass and volume. We have been measuring the length of our steps on the playground and converted centimetres to metres.

In literacy we have studied, written and performed poems about rainforest animals. We have given each other tips and tops on how to make our performances even better.


Our amazing trip to Paradise Wildlife was the cherry on top. We have recognised animals we’ve learned about in topic, Jakub and Tobias couldn’t be happier to see meerkats, Oliver saw a lion for the first time and Miss V was very happy to see the otters being fed!



Summer 1 Term Learning - 2018

This half term in Year 3 we were learning about rainforests. We know what a rainforest is and where in the world we can find them. We try to link our topic to different subjects. We have written an explanation letter about the water cycle for literacy and painted a rainforest for art. We are excited to keep on learning about the rainforest for the whole summer term!

In our math lessons we have focussed on reading the time. We have also used reasoning to explain our thinking and working out of division problems.

During science lessons we have learnt about light and shadows. We were lucky to have a few sunny days this half term so we could explore our own shadows outside.

Spring 2 Term Learning - 2018

Year 3 have had a fantastic half term and have practised being Resilient during their learning when some things have been challenging.

They enjoyed our Maths Week, particularly our Number to School Day. They were inspired to read more with the visit for the footballers from Spurs.

The whole class learnt new skipping skills which they will use during our Sponsored Skip for Sports Relief. They have also enjoyed spending time with our Nursery buddies.

Science – To start our healthy bodies topic we sorted food into its different food groups. 

Science – We finished our forces and magnets topic by experimenting to find the out if different surface areas had an effect on force. 

Literacy – We sorted books into fiction and non-fiction before investigating the similarities and difference between them. 

Show and Tell –We practise our presenting skills and make sure we stick exactly to topic when we are talking and asking questions.
