What an interesting time Year 3!

Year 3 Learning Autumn Term


The Digital Leaders were bowled over when they visited Year 3 to find out about their learning. Year 3 had loads to share and they almost ran out of time to get it all down on paper.


The four operations have been the main focus in maths, with column addition taking centre stage. In literacy, the Year 3 pupils have been turning into budding performers, by writing and even performing their own feelings poetry linked to the whole school Mental Health project. How exciting is that! In science, the Year 3 were very keen to make sure the Digital Leaders knew all about their seed dispersal lessons and what plants need to grow.


Some favourite moments have included maths lessons and passing their times tables tests before moving on to new tables facts.


As part of the Mental Health topic, children have been sharing what things make them happy and filling their buckets with these. They also wanted the Digital Leaders to know they have been looking at emotions in art and discussing how pieces make you feel. they have looked closely at pieces by Giacomo Balla.


For their active learning project the Year 3 were bursting with excitement and wanted everyone to know they may be making: seating, shaded areas, chalk boards, reading corners, a blackberry juice table, swings, climbing frames, slides and maybe even a hammock.


Wow so much here Year 3!

Well done on all your hard learning Year 3, and well done to the Digital Leader team on their first upload to the school website.
