During this topic children wrote poetry about themselves, found out about the human body and how to stay healthy in science and discovered how to use maps and compasses to learn more about their local area.  In Mathematics we have looked at the place value of 3 digit numbers and looked at mental and written methods to support the addition and subtraction of 3 digit numbers. The children particularly enjoyed taking part in team games at Wat Tyler park and back in the class room discussed how to work as a team as part of their ‘My Wellbeing’ curriculum. In addition they retold and wrote a fable based on the Fox and the Crow and then wrote a set of instructions on how to trap a fox.  Year 3 undertook their first performance in the school harvest festival during which they were delighted to show parents their freshly baked bread rolls.  Children found out about breads around the world and designed and evaluated their products as part of their DT unit of work. In RE children discovered that harvest festival is a typical Christian festival as part of their work on living as a Christian.

FRANCE

During this topic children wrote non-chronological reports comparing England and France. We used the book Orion and the Dark to inspire our science topic of light and dark. In maths we explored measures, money and multiplication and division. In art we studied French artists that explored light in their work including Monet and for our DT we designed, made and evaluated Mardi Gras masks. The highlight was our French day, during which we ate cheese, dressed up and listened to French music.
