Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Dear Parents and Carers,


        A very warm welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term.


The children have had a packed first half term with our 'Commotion in the Ocean' themed learning. Our core English text, 'Oliver and the Seawigs' opened up a multitude of writing opportunities including diary entries, instructions and character descriptions. We also made cross-curricular links to Geography, where we learnt about the different layers of the ocean and Science, where we classified different animal groups.

In Design Technology we evaluated existing 'Deep Sea Vehicles' and then planned our own. We also designed and made our own glasses for the 'Beach Optician', (take a look at our 'spec'-tacular creations below), and in Art we created papier-mache sea creatures.  


Please see the documents below for further class information and details about this year's curriculum.


Many thanks for your continued support and we look forward to another exciting half term of learning.


Mrs Smith and Ms Raven
