Welcome to Year Three

Hello, I'm Miss Kondwani the Year 3 teacher - welcome to our class page.

Term 1

Term 1 was a very exciting term in Year 3 with a lot of new learning. We kick started the term with the book "Fly, Eagle, Fly" and had a go at writing our own versions of the story. In Science we enjoyed learning about all of the bones in our body, we even learnt a song to help us to remember them all! We have been hardworking mathematician and did a lot of exciting number and place value work during our maths lessons. In Art, we have been developing our art skills, including; collage, painting, textures and sketching. We have produced a whole class flame to go with our 'FIRE' principles. We mixed different paints to create the colour of fire. Finally, we layered the paints to create flames.  Year 3 were visited by St Johns Ambulance and taught how to put someone in to the recovery position if they were unresponsive.

Term 2

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.  

Term 3 

Year 3 will be studying the science topic of 'Rocks'. Our WOW event will be making volcanoes and seeing them erupt. 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 'Pebble in the Pocket'. In mathematics, we will be learning about measurement and specifically exploring millimetres, centimetres, kilometres and millilitres. We will also be practising telling the time. 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. 


Homework Challenge:

The homework challenge for term 3 is to make your own volcano using different materials. 

Can you have a go at solving these mathematics problems relating to time?
