There are 29 owltastic children in Barn Owl class. Mrs Glass is our class teacher. Keep an eye on the web site for all of the exciting things we have in store!
Now that your child has entered Key Stage 2 it is essential that they continue to build their independence, therefore we would ask that you drop off and collect your child from the main playground rather than accompanying them into the building.
Year 3 is an exciting one and have lots of fantastic experiences and topics planned throughout the year. To help your child have a deeper understanding and to help make their learning more purposeful and enjoyable we would be grateful if you could assist them with any homework that has been set.
We have swimming every Monday until February half term. If your child is unable to participate in our swimming sessions please speak to a member of the Year 3 team or send a note in with your child. We are always desperate for helpers for swimming, so if you can spare a few hours on a Monday afternoon please come and see us.
Please refer to the Home Learning Page for activities.
Remember these don't need printing out, any work can be completed on paper.
Our next topic - Tremors!
Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature's awesome energies hiss and roar within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds. Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters, and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of Pompeii, frozen in time, then create blistering explosions from model volcanoes the fire foamy lava.
During this half term we will be learning all about history from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. Head back to prehistoric times, study ancient objects and reveal the secrets of an ancient time. We will be looking at how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years, from the stone age to the Roman invasion. We will be starting our topic with a trip to the Civil War Museum in Newark to study prehistoric artefacts.
Our first exciting topic is Heroes and Villains.
Martin Luther, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks or Amy Johnson?
Someone from your family or the local fire fighters?
There are many heroes and heroines but who do you admire the most?
Learn and sing songs about the infamous villains, Bonnie and Clyde and Cruella De Vil.
We will be writing raps, riddles, comic strips, traditional tales, developing dialogue and characters and writing a biographical article. How does it feel to do things good and bad? Which feels the best and why? Can you do a good deed that changes the world?
Perhaps we can be heroes - just for one day!
