Year 3: Lobsters & Penguins

Welcome to Year 3!


See below for a letter from the Year 3 teachers setting out some of the items that were discussed in the 'Meet the Teacher' session.


The topics that the Year 3 pupils will be covering during the second part of the Autumn Term (Term 2) can be seen below.


Below are the Knowledge Organisers for this terms topics.


Phonics Within Spelling Shed, digital games and assessment tools for phonics are available. These support the teaching of phonics via Phonics Shed but also give Spelling Shed users an additional set of tools to help develop children's phonics skills.. Our games start from pre-reading skills such as environmental sounds, include decoding-based games and even a flying superhero hare.


Year 3 Music: inspired by the use of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture as an accompaniment to firework displays, we have been creating our own firework compositions! The children listened carefully to each other's performances and drew graphic scores to reflect the dynamics of the music.


ICT: learning how to make flipbook animations and stop-frame animations on the iPads, using the iMotion app.


This week Year 3 have been creating their own Stone Age cave paintings. The children took inspiration from their knowledge of life in the Stone Age to tell a story through their painting which they created by painting with sticks, paint and dirt. A super effort from all!


Ocean Curriculum - Science: understanding the role of the ocean in rock formation, by making sedimentary rocks out of chocolate!


Outdoor PE: developing spatial awareness and ball skills – sending, receiving, travelling, throwing and catching.


History: putting events in chronological order and making sense of the prehistoric past with our mini Stone Age archaeological dig.


Geography: creating sketch maps of the features of Dartmoor.
