Welcome to Year Three
Hello, I'm Miss Kondwani the Year 3 teacher - welcome to our class page.
Another exciting term in the Year 3 classroom! We began the term with our WOW event, where we made Roman shields. We have enjoyed comparing our lives to the Romans and learning lots of interesting facts about the Roman army. In maths we have learnt some new tricks on how to multiply and divide. We then applied these skills and learnt how to scale yummy recipes up and down.
We have had a very busy yet exciting term in Year 3 with plenty of explosions! In science, we have been learning about 'Rocks'. We started our topic by making our own volcanoes and then making them erupt. We were really amazed by the paleontologist Mary Anning. We learnt about some of her fantastic discoveries and then made our own fossils! In mathematics, we have been focusing on converting time between 12 hour-clocks and 24-hour clocks. Bristol Bears rugby visited Year 3 this term for a 6 week programme on Healthy Lifestyles. We were introduced to the eat well guide and were shocked when we discovered how much sugar is in some of our favorite foods. We also learnt skills on how to attack and defend when playing rugby.
Year 3 will be studying the science topic of 'Plants' and we have a lot of exciting lessons experiments that will take place. In literacy, we will be exploring lots of different styles of writing, including; poems, narrative and non-chronological reports. We will be reading the book 'Ice Trap: Shackleton's incredible expedition '. In mathematics, we will be learning about measurement and specifically exploring millimeters, centimeters, kilometers and milliliters. Year 3 will be continuing to learn their 3, 4 and 8 timetables in order to improve their Fonthill 400 scores! We will be continuing to have PE lessons on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. In PE sessions we will be learning gymnastics.
