Across school our overarching theme this term is still ‘Me, myself and I’. In Year three, our theme is ‘Seeing is Believing’. Over this half term we will be focussing on light and shadows within Science and DT, studying famous explorers and learning about the Gunpowder plot in History and Geography, and enjoying more coding within computing. Our key texts this half term will be – ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ by Philip Reeve, as well as, ‘the Polar Express’ by Chris Van Allsberg. In maths, we will be focusing on multiplication, division and fractions.
We have enjoyed learning about the special festival of light, called Diwali, which is celebrated by Hindus all across the world. We loved the colourful rangoli patterns that decorate the entrances of houses and other buildings. We created our own rangoli patterns using coffee filters and felt-tip pens!
We really enjoyed our fitness bootcamp. There was lots of heavy lifting and some tough challenges involved, but that did not stop us!
The children have been looking at light and shadows, they have created shadow boxes and puppets to retell the story of 'The foggy, foggy forest'.
The children have really enjoyed reading our new story 'Oliver and the seawigs'. They have used ideas from the text, as well as their own imaginations, to create their own spectacular seawigs. Whose wig do you think would win the night of the seawigs competition?
