Welcome to Year 3!
Academic Year 2020 - 2021
Year 3 Active Maths
Year 3 have been using active moment in their maths lessons to help them remember how to divide. We have also been practising sharing using equipment for hands on learning.
Maths lessons are fun because not only are we learning but becoming fitter and healthier!
Year 3 Maths Lesson
Year 3 took advantage of the sunny weather to take their maths learning about parallel and perpendicular lines outside.
We really enjoyed searching for parallel and perpendicular lines on the playground.
Year 3's Coding Lesson
Year 3 have been using a coding programme called Scratch to create animated letters making the letters spin, grow and change colour.
This lesson highlighted 3RH's teamworking skills helping each other to produce some great letter animations!
Year 3 Learn about Rocks!
This term, our topic was, ‘Rocks’. Pupils worked scientifically by observing rocks, including those used in school buildings, as well as identifying and classifying rocks according to whether they have grains or crystals and whether they are fit for purpose. They also researched and discussed the different kinds of living things whose fossils are found in sedimentary rock and found out about how fossils are formed. They explored different soils, identifying similarities and differences between them, and investigated what happens when rocks are rubbed together or what changes occur when they are in water. As well as that, they also raised and answered questions about the way soils are formed.
In doing all this, they thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and produced a high standard of independent work around the study of these topics in their books.
Year 3 Maths Lesson
Year 3 ICT Lesson
Year 3 have been learning how to edit a word document in their ICT lesson. Using an extract from Mr Sticky they have been learning how to edit the colour, size and font type of text.
We have been thinking carefully about the words we are going to change to show our understanding of the text. For example the word small we have changed the font size and the word fish we have changed to orange.
Who knew that we could improve our ICT and Reading skills in the same lesson?
Can you spot any other obvious edits or even any we may have missed?
Year 3 Stone Age Houses
Year 3 have had their creative hats on over half term and have made these amazing Stone Age houses.
Well done to all the children who brought in their project work.
Year 3 Diwali Workshop
Year 3 Forces and Magnets
Last term, our topic was, 'Forces and Magnets'. During the last couple of weeks, the children of 3SR had been busy exploring how useful visible and invisible forces can be. For instance, they compared different surfaces to find out the impact of the force of friction on moving objects. They also compared the strength of different magnetic and non-magnetic objects.
They thoroughly enjoyed these lessons and produced a high standard of independent work around the study of these topics in their books.
Year 3 Science- Living things and their habitats
Year 3's Creative Task - Food Art
This week for our creative lesson we headed towards the kitchen. The task was to make a picture scene out of food!
Year 3 definitely got creative!
Year 3 Teachers Letters to Pupils
Our Year 3 teachers have all written a letter to their class to enjoy reading whilst they are at home. We hope this helps our Year 3 pupils to feel connected and to know that their teachers are always thinking of them and following all of the wonderful work that they are completing at home. They will get to read all about what their teachers have been doing too! We would welcome our pupils to write back to their teacher. If they would like to do this then a parent can email their letter to their class teacher. Enjoy!

Year 3- ' Ug Boy'
Year 3 have been reading Ug, Boy Genius during our Power of Reading lessons. We have thoroughly enjoyed finding out more about the characters, Ug, Dug and Dugs. Ug is a great example of someone who continues to experiment with new ideas and tries his best to make changes which will help others. Year 3 have written persuasive speeches encouraging the Stone Age community to try out some of the ideas. They have encouraged Ug not to give up and to continue to work on his ideas as practise makes perfect!
In year 3, Autumn 2, we have been learning about differences and we looked at different scenarios that could cause conflict within families and how to solve them. We were taught how to use the Solve It Resolution model.
This model involves each person talking about their feelings in the situation, thinking about different solutions and agreeing a way forward.
We worked in groups on different scenarios and we learnt that it is important to listen to each other's feelings and ideas, and to come to an agreement that everyone is happy with.
