This week Year 3 travelled up to London to visit the London Transport Museum to support our topic and DT work this term on moving vehicles.

We had a great day and behaviour was fantastic!

 

We learnt lots about transport past, present and future. Here are some of the pictures from our trip:

Year 3 have been busy this week designing and building moving vehicles in Design Technology. Next week we'll have a chance to see lots of real life vehicles at the London Transport Museum but for now, here are some photos of the children's work:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wow! What a half term we have had in Year 3! We packed loads in, writing magical stories, adding and subtracting three digit numbers and solving word problems, learning how to play netball and much, much more.

 

We rounded off the half term with a day dedicated to 'Race for Life', organised by Miss Hewitt. The children did circuit training in the morning and lots of money was raised for the charity as the children wore pink. 

 

Here are some photos from the circuit training:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a year! Well done to all Year 3 children for all their hard work over the year and thanks to parents for your continued support. It is always appreciated.

 

Happy summer holidays!

 

 

Year 3 were very fortunate this week to have a visit from the Mobile Farm. They brought in chickens, goats, pigs, calves and even a dog for the children to stroke and learn about.

 

Here are some pictures from the day:

27th June 2016 Our Visit To The Gurdwara in Belvedere

Science- We carried out an experiment to see if plants grew better under different circumstances. To make it a fair test, we changed only one thing about each pair of pots. Some of us fed our plants with Fanta. Others gave their plant milk. We even had some children singing to their plant!

We also carried out an experiment to see if larger roots absorbed more water than lots of smaller roots. We used cotton wool to represent the roots, held them in the bowl of water for 10 seconds and then measured the amount of water left in the bowl. I am sure the children can tell you all about our end results!

We've had a really busy week in Year 3 with lots of Art and DT. At the start of the week we painted pictures of Stone Henge and then made them into collages. Then we ended the week making Christmas decorations by measuring, cutting and sewing felt together. All of Year 3 (including Mr Shea!) learnt a lot about how to sew effectively. Finally, we rounded off the week with our Christmas party.

Master of Tables

 

Just to remind parents that children should be learning their times tables at home and to remind children that they should be asking adults in the school to test them on their tables, in order to get the bronze, silver or gold awards.

This week in Year 3 we have been working on Instructional Texts in English. We talked about the importance of giving precise instructions and using imperative (bossy) verbs to give commands. Then we went into the playground to put these instructions into practice and guide each other to hidden objects!

 

 

 

 

 

Hello! Welcome to a brand new school year from Mrs Kerr and Mr Shea.

 

Over the course of the year we will be filling this page with photos, work and news of what is going on in Year 3.

 

Here is a plan of the topics we will be covering this half term:

 

 

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics we ask them to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. 

 

We have created these lists of KIRFs to align with the new curriculum. They are intended to be challenging and it is intended that children will be taught the necessary maths in lessons beforehand.

 

This is a first draft so some top tips are well-thought out and others are currently more-or-less empty.

 

Watch this space!

 

 

 

 

There are many ways that you can help your child at home. Below is a link to what your child will be learning in English this term and how you can help them at home.

In Year 3 we've been working hard on our Spanish all year and last week we recorded ourselves speaking in Spanish.

 

We showed how we could greet each other, count, name days of the week, months of the year and more.

 

Check out how fantastic our Spanish speaking has become:

Today was Sports Day and what a fantastic day it was!

We were all winners as we all took part in the races.

We would like to thank Miss Hewitt for once again organising an excellent day.

Here are some photos:

This week we went on our second trip of the year to the Royal Naval College in Greenwich. We went primarily to visit the painted hall, but ended up doing lots more fun and educational activities too. We learnt about why Greenwich is famous and the kind of things that the buildings were previously used for. Then we visited an old bowling alley with wooden pins and balls where the boys had to face the girls in old-fashioned competition. We finished the day off with an ice cream in the park and were very lucky with the weather, as the sun shone all day long! Here are some pictures of the trip.

Year 3 hosted a very special assembly this morning, performing as the band 'The Samba Explosion'.

 

Since September, Year 3 have been having weekly Brazilian Samba Drums music lessons and for their final session, they put on a performance for the whole school to enjoy. The Samba Explosion went down a storm and the rest of the school really appreciated what they saw and heard.

 

We would all like to say a big thank you to music teacher Mr Leverage for all his hard work and patience this year. Here are some photos of the show:

We've been practising our times tables lots lately in Year 3. Today some of us played 'Times tables pairs' where we had to match a sum to an answer and then record it in our books, eg. 8 x 4 had to be matched to 32. We all agreed that this was a great way to remember our times tables.

There was a crime scene in Year 3 today as we attempted to solve the mystery of the plant murderer. After finding the plant in pieces, we discussed whether it counts as murder, being a plant. Some said a plant is a living thing, so to kill it is wrong, whereas others were not convinced. After finding out about the different functions of a plant though, how they are formed, grow and reproduce, we began to realise that humans are not so different from plants after all.

What a term!

 

We finished off the term in Year 3 with some performance poetry, using all parts of our bodies to provide actions to accompany our verses.

 

Happy Easter!

This term we have been learning all about light in science. We learned about sources of light and experimented with shadows in and out of the classroom. Today we finished the unit off with some Design Technology where we planned and made our own torches. Here's what they looked like:

It was a sad day in Year 3 today as we said goodbye to Hiba, who is leaving Northwood for a new school in Scotland.

We wish Hiba the very best of luck though and we made a super card for her too, so that she can always remember her friends at Northwood.

On Monday Year 3 travelled up to London to visit the London Transport Museum to support our topic and DT work this term.

We had a great day and behaviour was fantastic!

 

We learnt lots about transport past, present and future. Here are some of the pictures from our trip:

 

Geography 02/12/14

 

Over the last week in Year 3 we have been using atlases to locate continents and countries around the world, then marking these on blank maps.

 

Some of us even used a key to show where each country could be found.

 

Autumn Poetry (03/10/14)

 

This week in Year 3 we have been writing our Autumn poems after walking around school and gathering Autumnal words and phrases.

 

Here are some great examples!

This week in Computing we have been using the program 'Scratch' to create animations by programming and writing Algorithms.

 

Year 3 did fantastically well in what was a complicated lesson. Here are some examples:

The Story Mountain

The Story Mountain 1

This week in Year 3 we have been reading the story 'Leon and the Place Between'.

 

We took the important parts of the story and placed them on the story mountain.

 

The Story Mountain has 5 main parts: The beginning of the story, where it all starts, the rising action, when the action begins to happen, the climax, which is the most important part of the story and where there is sometimes danger or fear, the falling action, when things start calming down, and finally the ending.

 

We also talked about where other stories and films would fit into the Story Mountain. Can you see where the parts of your favourite story or film would fit into the mountain?
