Year 3 – Diwali

Firstly we would like to wish anyone who celebrates, a Happy Diwali!

In Year 3 our topic in Religious Education is Hindu Festivals.

We have started by looking at the Festival of Diwali as it was on the 7th November.

Diwali lasts for 5 days and is the Festival of Light.

As part of our RE lesson we designed and began to make some Diva lamps.We have used clay and different tools to follow our paper designs.

We are looking forward to painting them once the clay has dried. Keep checking back to see our finished products.

Year 3 Art Day

Today in Year 3 we had our first Art day.

We focused on mixing colours with a variety of materials and the outcomes have been fantastic.

We have drawn and painted Stonehenge and even made it out of biscuits – yummy!

We’ve had a lovely day and learnt lots about Art.

This week we have been looking at Stone Age shelters, from different times.

We enjoyed comparing them to our homes and also started to create our own in DT.

Here are some pictures of our shelters (in progress)

Welcome back Year 3

Welcome from Year 3!

We have had a great first week in our classroom, we have been getting to know our teacher Miss Briggs and also learning about our new environment.

We have made our new class rules, refreshed our memory of the school rules, been given all our new work books and had lots of fun learning what year 3 is all about.

This half term our topic is Stone Age:

We will be looking at lots of books about the Stone Age in English including Stone Age Boy, UG and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth. Alongside this we will be writing instructions and diary entries.

In math we will be focusing on place value and looking at our times tables.

In an afternoon we will be looking at the Stone Age and the difference between then and now as well as looking at Rocks in Science.

We will also be doing lots of fun and exciting things in DT, Art, RE, PSHE and PE.

A little reminder that Miss Briggs won’t be in on a Wednesday.
