In history, we will be learning about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.

As historians, we will explore these key questions and skills. Here is a knowledge organiser.

World Book Day 2022

In English, we focused our writing around Leon and the Place Between by Angela McAllister. In this magical story, Leon is transported into a mysterious world. 

We created persuasive posters, persuasive speeches and diary entries. We also used prepositional phrases to write descriptions.

In our guided writing sessions, we studied Little Wolfie - an alternative fairy tale based on Little Red Riding Hood. Then, we wrote our own stories. Go to the Year 3 gallery to take a closer look at our writing.

We read the poem, 'If I were in Charge...'  by Judith Viorst.  Then, we wrote our own poems titled 'If I Were in Charge of the School...'

As artists, we made pop art inspired by Romero Britto. We also created block prints inspired by the designs of William Morris.

We had an exciting Stone Age experience where we learnt about hunting, gathering, tools and weapons. Please enjoy this video:

As historians and writers, we wrote our own versions of Stone Age Boy. See a photo of our sentence stacking below.

We then wrote sequels independently, in which a person from the Neolithic Stone Age was transported into 2021!

Year 3 had a fantastic day at Bushey Museum learning about local history and art. We also had a lovely picnic at Bushey Rose Garden.

As biologists, we are learning about animals including humans. We will be focusing on nutrition, skeletons and muscles. Here is some useful vocabulary.

As geographers, we went on a walk around the local area. We used a likert scale and traffic survey as part of our field work. Back at school, we made our own maps and added symbols to show schools, shops and green spaces.

As physicists, we explored light and dark. We focused on reflections, shadows and the effect of UV light from the sun. Here is some useful vocabulary. Have a look at some of our learning below.

As chemists, we investigated rocks and soils in the autumn term. Here is some useful vocabulary.

Please enjoy the video of some of our science investigations and work from the term...

As mathematicans, we continuously practise our arithmetic skills. We have been thinking about choosing  efficient strategies for different types of questions e.g. column method or mental maths.


Writing Instructions

This week we are writing instructions. We are focusing on using time adverbials and imperative verbs. We started the week by writing instructions for our own potions... What would you put in your potion? What magical effect would your potion have?
