Year 3 Autumn Term

Autumn Term 1

Predator

A predominantly Science based topic

Children will be learning about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious venus flytrap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about their favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey.

In order to engage children, they will be visiting the ‘Yorkshire Wildlife Park’ on either Tuesday 8th or Thursday 10th September.  Whilst at the park, children will be participating in an exciting and invigorating workshop titled ‘Aren’t Animals Amazing!’

During this general fun, hands on education session, children will gain a greater appreciation of animals. They will observe and touch a range of animal artefacts such as skulls, claws and at least one live animal. Sure to be great fun.

In 3J during the first few weeks of term we have been learning about place value.  We have developed our thinking practically and in our heads too.

Our theme work on ‘Predator’ is really interesting.  We are learning a lot about animals, where they live and what they eat.

We always aim to be the very best and do this by putting in maximum effort into our learning both in the classroom and at home.

Autumn Term 2

Scrumdiddlyumptious

A predominantly Design and Technology based topic

Tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, vegetables and tantalising treats!

Work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with a vegetable orchestra or become a fruit sculptor.

Find exciting recipes to read – and write your own too.

Then get busy in the kitchen making tasty dishes from across the world and discover how good food helps you grow and become strong.

Be a wizz and create your own scrumdiddlyumptious smoothie for Squeezy Joe and his team of fruity friends.

And here’s food for thought – if you are what you eat… what does that make YOU?

Look at some of our amazing creative homework.  We did this over the half term holiday and brought it into school on our first day back.

We are all very proud of what we have achieved and so are our teachers.
