Attendance
We work very hard in Year 3 be in school everyday. Our school target is 96% but we try and make it 100%. In the Autumn term we have won 5 times for being the class with the best attendance. We love having the 100 pawcent bear in our class and he gets to go home with Miss Fearon or Mrs King. 
Maths
 
In maths we have been using concrete resources to help us look at 10 more and 10 less of a number.
 In maths we have been looking at number lines to 1000. We were estimating where numbers would fall in comparison to 0 and 1000.
In maths we played a place value game. We worked in teams to make a 3 digit number. We had to use all our maths knowledge to help us (odds and evens, multiples of 10)
English
 
In English we have been trying to find out the meaning of some new vocabulary by using dictionaries and online dictionaries on the I-pads. We learnt that 'colossal' means something very big and 'exotic' means somethings unusual and colourful.
In English we looked at a illustration from our book 'Return'. We used the location explorers to help us think about what we could see, how we would feel if we were there, what we thought was unusual and any questions we had. 
We have started reading the book 'Seen and not heard' by Katie May Green. In the night some of the character from the story came alive and visited our classroom. We couldn't believe our eyes when we came in to find the mess they made.
Science
 
In Autumn 1 our science topic is 'forces'. We been looking at pushing and pulling. We made freeze frames of different everyday activities where we use these forces.
French
 
In French we have been looking at feelings. We used the Ipads to show the different emotions and how we say them in French.
We made our own finger puppets after listening to the instructions in French. We then learnt a French rhyme and performed it with our puppets.
In English we have been looking at the writer's hints used in our model text.
English
In English we wrote poems about the Shiverhawk children. We read the poems aloud to the rest of the class.
French Day - January 2020
As part of French day we looked at a famous French artist called Henri Rousseau. We loooked at some of his famous art work and created our own art piece based on his work.
Our new story is 'Jemmy Button'. We have been looking at the different settings in the story and planning our own setting description.
English
We looked at different illustrations taken from the book and thought about how the characters would be feeling. We then looked at effective nouns, adjectives and verbs we could use to describe the images.
In DT we are looking at textiles and sewing. We have been practising running stitch and cross stitch.
We loved making book characters out of potatoes for World Book Day.
Art
 
In art this term we have been looking at the illustrator Quentin Blake. Today we looked at a book written by Roahl Dahl called Dirty Beasts. We looked at the characters from this book, sketched them into our sketch books and then made models of them using Plasticine. 
 
In art we have been looking at illustrations by Quentin Blake. We drew our own characters and then used water colours to paint a wash over them.
In art we sketched our own animals and then made them into moving pictures.
History
 
Our topic this term is Ancient Egypt. We had a mini museum in our classroom and we were looking at the different sources of information and artifacts. We learnt lots of amazing facts!
We have been looking at how the Ancient Egyptians used mummification. We looked at the seven step process and acted it out. Don't worry we didn't take out any organs, especially not the brain through the nostrils!
Religious Education
 
In RE we have been looking at the story of The Good Samaritan. We acted out the story remembering some of the key vocabulary. 
Computing
 
In computing we have been looking at coding. We used purple mash to learn how to use code to make objects move. 
Music
 
In music we have learning the song 'let your spirit fly' and we have been learning how to play the glockenspiel. 
Physical Education
 
In PE we were using our team work skills to get across the hall (swamp) without getting our feet wet (touching the floor outside the hoops). We had to use our co-ordination skills and trust each other to help our team get across safetly. 
Design Technology
In DT we are looking at seasonal food from around the world. Today we made Japanese fruit skewers using our new cookery room. We had a great time preparing the fruit, making the skewers, pasting on plum sauce then eating them!
In Relationships and Health Education we have been looking at bullying and how we can make a change. During Anti-bullying week we thought about a small change we could make which would help improve our school.
Geography
In Geography we have been looking at the country Egypt. We researched different geographical facts and created a book using the app 'Book creator' on the Ipads.
In D&T we made crumbles using seasonal fruit. We measured out the ingredients and followed the recipe to make our delicious crumbles.
In our last week of DT we designed and made vegetable tarts. We used seasonal vegetables and tried to think about the different colours we used. We loved our vegetable tarts and even made some for the staff!
