Parrots - Year 3 - Mrs Slater

Welcome to Key Stage 2!

Mrs Slater and Miss Carter would like to welcome you to the Parrot Class page. We are looking forward to working with you over this academic year and we have an exciting learning journey that we are going to share with you. Take a look at our Y3 Long Term Plan 2019/20.

Homework will be set each Friday and needs to be completed by the following Friday. Mrs Slater offers a homework club Friday playtime however, children need to let us know by Thursday AND have their homework with them.

Please ensure PE kits are brought in every Monday to go home every Friday. We aim to have PE every Tuesday but sometimes this can change. Please can parents ensure that children bring both indoor and outdoor kits to school. This needs to include sensible footwear.

In Parrots class, we are passionate about all our learning! One way you can really improve your learning at home is by reading. In school we aim to hear children individually read at least once a week to a teacher. Children also participate in at 5 guided reading/RWI sessions per week. Please ensure that your child brings their reading book and diary to school on their set reading day. Please ask if you are unsure of your child's reading day. We will aim to change reading books each week as well as reward any stickers for home reading. Please remember that you can read any books/ texts at home alongside school reading books. You can write these in your reading diaries too.

100 Books To Read In Year 3 and 4.

We are running a library system where children are able to loan books from the classroom. The children are able to exchange their book as and when they please, so long as the old one is brought back in a good condition.

If you have any questions about your child's progress or learning, please do not hesitate to speak to us.

The Y3 Timetable is available to download.

Hi guys! We hope that you are enjoying the Easter half term (as much as you can) and that you are keeping safe! We miss everyone dearly and we cannot wait to get back to some kind of 'normal'!

Our main priority and concern is that you are all well, safe and happy at this time!

I know that there have been some requests for work etc therefore you will find a detailed recommended timetable for the next two weeks - following this week 'off' (or whenever you fancy!). Please note that this is NOT a requirement - it is only there for those of you to access if you want to/if possible! Please do not feel obliged to complete these learning activities. We have made sure children are able to follow all of the tasks themselves, without grown-up support /input to take some pressure off! Please email us if you would like anything else, we are always an email away! We would also love to see what you have been up to ... whether it links to our tasks or not!

Under the timetable link you will find documents which are mentioned within it. We have made sure that you will not need to print anything out, all can be accessed online via a laptop, phone or tablet. All you will need is some scrap paper or a wipe board for most of the learning set out. In topic other resources are optional!

Spring Learning 2019/20

 

Our Year 3 Topics for the Spring Term are 'Tribal Tales' and 'Urban Pioneers'.

 

Y3 Curriculum Overview - Spring 2 2019/20.

Our Spring 1 Learning 2019/20

This half term we have focused on all things Stone Age right through to the Iron Age. We have learnt the significance and impact that they have had on our lives today!

We fell in love with our stone age friend 'Stig of the Dump' - so much so that we decided to write our very own chapter of the story featuring a 'Stig adventure'.

We did lots of mapping to help us to build this up and we really enjoyed sharing it with our friends. See our writing on display below!

 

In DT, we worked collaboratively to design and make our very own stone age tool. We became Hunter Gatherers and were only able to use natural resources just like the cave men would have! See our tools below...

In guided reading we had a surprise package to start off our new story. We were reading 'The Boy who Grew Dragons' and we got to taste the dragon fruit for ourselves... Unluckily for us there were no real dragons in them (although this could be a good thing as they are really hard work!)

We then did lots of work around the book including summarising the whole thing! Mrs Slater allowed us three sentences to retell the story - we were very good though as our reading dog Sheba helps us with this!

PE : In PE we have been doing some gymnastics. To warm us up Mrs Taylor asked us to see how many letters we could make with our friends! Can you guess the letters we are making?

Summer (Transition) and Autumn Learning 2019/20

 

Our Year 3 Topics for the Autumn term are 'Gods and Mortals' and 'Tremors'.

 

Y3 Curriculum Overview - Autumn 1 2019/20.

Y3 Curriculum Overview - Autumn 2 2019/20.

Our Autumn Learning

Y3 are making volcanoes as part their topic work on Tremors...

Science / Geography : We studied the different types of rock and then went on a hunt to see what we could find in our own area! We then had a visit form the lovely Dr Dawn who is an actual geologist - we learnt so much!

DT / Geography / Art / Science : We firstly sketched our volcanoes using pressure to create different shades to show the shadows. We then designed and planned our volcano. Once we had made it we thought about how we can mix powder paint to create darker and lighter shades to show those shadows we had sketched. Here are our finished products. We then blew up the volcanoes... it was so cool!! Baking powder and vinegar worked better then Coca-Cola and Mentos!
