Year 3

What have Year 3 been learning about?

In English, we relearnt the story of Little Charlie off by heart! We also made our own puppets and puppet show boxes and performed to the rest of the class. We then went on to write our own versions of the story by changing the main characters, settings and problems that they encounter. 

In Maths, we have been looking at the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We have challenged ourselves by adding and subtracting large numbers and learning our 8x table!

We love PE! Year 3 have been focusing on fitness and fundamental skills like stamina, running, jumping and dodging.

In Science, we have looked at and noticed similarities and differences of different kinds of rock. We also used Art and drew our rocks.

In Art, we looked at Canaletto’s ‘Entrance to the Grand Canal’. We practiced our line work and were able to create a continuous line drawing of the tops of the buildings in the painting. We then looked at the vanishing point in the painting, and sketched our own drawing of a train track and a street using the idea of a vanishing point.
