Spring 2022

In year 3 this term, we have been looking at how to include twists. Traditional tales have been one of the key learning topics in literacy. We drew inspiration from our favourite traditional tales and looked for similarities between them.  We have then been influenced by the twisted tale of The Princess and the Pea; we then told the same traditional tales from a different point of view with a creative twist.  

In Maths we have studied and explored fractions. This started with creating our own fractions to finding fractions of amounts. We have also enjoyed comparing and ordering fractions. 

During this busy term we really enjoyed looking at changes to Britain during the Iron Age. We discovered that humans living in Britain at this time were called Celts, and they lived very physical and dangerous lives. We looked at artifacts and pictured ourselves living in roundhouses on hillforts. We also researched hillforts and found out that there were two local hillforts in Hertfordshire!

In R.E we have been looking at the importance of the prayer for Christians and Muslims.  We looked at different types of prayer and  learnt the importance of belonging and commitment between the two religions.

Autumn 2021

Hello everyone and welcome back! Year 3 have made an amazing start to the new academic year. Everyone has settled so well to the new rules and changes in routines, and I cannot wait to share what we have been learning

In English, Year 3 have been busy retelling and writing their own fables. All of our stories had a moral teaching and were based around stories that were already well known. We are now currently writing our creative and descriptive shape poems.

In Maths we have been relearning place value and have been learning rounding, estimation and reading measurements. I have been really impressed with the work that I have seen!

In Science, pupils have looked at a variety of objects and the shadows they create. We are also currently planning an investigation to see whether our shadows will change size during the course of the day.

I have also been blown away by the children’s focus in art lessons. Our Art sessions have a cross curricular link to our History topic of ‘Prehistoric Britain’.  We have spent time looking and researching various types of cave paintings, looked at the materials and techniques early humans used and also recreated them in our sketchbooks.
