Welcome to Year 3's Class page!

 

My name is Mrs Wilkinson and I am the class teacher. Miss Barnes is our teaching assistant.

 

Our theme for this half term is: ‘The Iron Man'. Our lead subjects within this theme are Science, Design and Technology and Music. 

We'll be learning about magnets and forces. Our end of unit outcome will be to create a pop-up book using 'The Iron Man' as inspiration to share with a younger age group.

We'll also be composing music to accompany a trailer based on 'The Iron Man'.


 
Homework
A list of spellings will be given out each Monday and these will be tested on the following Monday. Children are encouraged to practise these during the entire week and use the words in context.
  
P.E.
Every Thursday. Our class enjoys the 'Daily Mile' and  the children use other opportunities to keep active such as activities during playtimes and Breakfast Club.

 

Times Tables 

Children are encouraged to practise their 3,4 and 8 times tables.


 
Home Reading
Please bring your home reader and reading record to school every day. We encourage reading at home and reading for pleasure. Any comments from parents/carers in the reading records are always welcome and much appreciated. Books are changed every Monday. Children will also have the opportunity to borrow books from our school library on Wednesday.

We look forward to working with you and your child.

On Monday the 10th of February , the Online Protection Squad delivered the KS1 and KS2 assemblies on Safer Internet Day 2020. The theme was 'Identity'.

On Wednesday the 12th of February, year 3 presented their ebooks on Rocks, Soils and Fossils to the year 6 children as a revision guide in Science which was year 3's end of unit outcome. The year 6 children evaluated the ebooks and gave some constructive feedback which was very useful. Both classes enjoyed the experience.

In year 3 , we've been reading, discussing and exploring features of poems (stone/rock themed to match our half termly topic) particularly focusing on the performance aspect and what makes it a good performance. We've been watching clips of famous poets such as Ann Perrin and Michael Rosen performing their poems to inspire us with our performances. We hope you enjoy these recordings.

On Thursday the 6th of February, we worked with a famous local printmaking artist Ms. Julia Swarbrick. We handled some real fossils from the collection at the Blackburn Museum and then the children created relief prints using poly plates and foam. We had a fantastic afternoon and learnt a lot! A big thank you to Ms. Julia Swarbrick and well done to the children!

On Friday the 31st of January, year 3 children shared their stories set in the Stone Age with the year 1 children as their English end of unit outcome presentation. It was a lovely atmosphere in both classrooms and it was great to see the children interact with each other. Everyone enjoyed the experience including the hot chocolate, marshmallows and biscuits!

Year 3 showed fantastic teamwork in our R.E. team challenge on Wednesday! Well done everyone!

On Wednesday 29th January Year 3 had our prayer service in class.

On Tuesday, the 21st of January, we were learning about soil and how it is formed. To help us understand the different layers of soil better, we made a ‘dirt pudding’ using ingredients such as honey, biscuits, chocolate dessert and jelly worms! We really enjoyed making our dirt pudding and eating it!

On Friday the 13th of December, Class 3 organised a healthy picnic, music performance and art exhibition for their parents, grandparents, friends and families. The children worked really hard in choosing and trialling all the recipes which was influenced by our learning in Science and Design & Technology. We are very proud to say that they were involved in preparing all the food for our picnic. There was an art exhibition displaying the clay models of food items from the eatwell plate that the children designed and created. The children also composed healthy eating songs and performed them in front of our visitors. Well done to everyone in Class 3 and a massive thank you to all the support and fantastic comments that we received from our visitors! We really enjoyed it.

In year 3 we’ve enjoyed trialling our recipes in preparation for our healthy picnic on Friday the 13th of December. We made potato salad, pasta salad, fruit salad and cheese and ham sandwiches. We used simple cooking techniques such as boiling and also tried out our cutting, chopping , mixing and peeling skills. We were pleasantly surprised with how delicious all the food was despite using some ingredients that we had never tasted before such as chives . wholemeal pasta and crème fraiche. The best part was eating it all!

In year 3, we’ve been exploring the works of sculptures and artists like Claes Oldenburg, Renoir , Monet and Andy Warhol to inspire our own sculptures of healthy food items from an eatwell plate. We’ve used clay to design and create some of our favourites for our art and design exhibition to be held alongside our healthy picnic on Friday the 13th of December at 2 pm. We’ve had fun experimenting with clay and using different techniques such as rolling, joining and creating textures and shapes.

In year 3, we had a very exciting start to our topic for this half term – Healthy humans. We learnt about two very different artists – Renoir and Andy Warhol. We drew fruits and vegetables using a variety of media such as charcoal, pencils, pastels, chalk and biros. As our end of unit outcome is to organise a healthy picnic for our visitors, we also tasted some savoury picnic foods and talked about their taste, smell, texture and appearance.

In year 3 we’ve had a really exciting finish to our topic – There’s no place like home! We’ve been learning about the geographical features and the changes over the years in our local area and Blackburn. We’ve been using Google Earth and Google map, old and new photos and a range of maps to study the human and physical aspects of our local area. We’ve also been discussing what we’d like to change in our environment and how to achieve this. Our class decided on launching a litter picking afternoon to help keep our environment clean. On Wednesday, the 16th of October, Miss Sally Booth, the Education Officer from BWD Council visited us to talk about our environment and to share what we have learnt within our topic. She also lent us the necessary equipment, jackets and helped us pick litter around our school and church. A big thank you to Ms Booth because we really enjoyed our afternoon. We are very proud of ourselves for helping to keep our local area clean.

To conclude our topic Domestic Church - Family, the children planned a lovely prayer service on Friday 27th September.
