Welcome to Year 3

Use this page to join us on our learning journey. We have three classes inspired by the author Rudyard Kipling and his story The Jungle Book – Baloo, Bagheera and Mowgli. Our class teachers are Miss Cole, Miss Green, Mrs Burke and Mrs Freeman. We also have Mrs Tarry and Ms Esa supporting us in the classroom.

This term our topic is What a Wonderful World. In English, we are looking at Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book and his Just So Stories. In Topic this term, we are we are looking at the Earth and its continents and countries. Our focus in Science is magnets and forces which also links with our Design and Technology project.

In English last half term, we wrote a non-fiction text about chimpanzees. We learnt loads of fascinating facts about what they eat, look like and where they live. Using this learnt knowledge, we created interviews of chimpanzees using the app Chatterpix. Check them out!

On Monday, Year 3 were transported back in time. We landing in the year 800,000BC! Our classrooms were turned into caves, we went on a prehistoric beast hunt and even created our own woolly mammoths using a range of materials. 

This was an excellent introduction to our new topic this half term and the children are now very excited about their learning. We are currently writing a set of instructions based on the book 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' by Michelle Robinson and Kate Hindley.
