Each half term we also set a topic-based project to create at home and present to the class at school! These could be posters, models, art, PowerPoint presentations etc. that relates to the theme.

 

Curriculum

Have a look below to find out what we will be learning about in Year 3.

Forest School

 

We are really enjoying getting to go to the woods every other week for Forest schools on a Thursday. It is great fun and we get to learn all about nature. Some of the activities we do include building dens, playing in the stream, making beads and even making hot chocolate. It is important that we wear warm clothes and to also have spare clothes that we can change into just in case we get muddy and wet! Which we do like to do! Wellies are also a great idea!

Moving Monsters

This half term we were looking at pneumatic systems to make things move. We used a balloon and egg box to make our own moving monsters. We planned and designed our monsters before using different materials to create them. Take a look at us working hard below!

Squash

Later this year we will go on a trip to the garrison to play squash on the proper courts.  Last year, we really enjoyed learning about the game and the opportunity to play at the garrison. Take a look at some photos of them playing below.
