Welcome to your child's 'Learning at Home' page. We have thought long and hard about the range of activities below which have been selected to enhance and develop their learning.
Work will be updated every Monday by 9.30am.
Welcome to Year 3!
This term our main theme is Extreme Earth.
In English, we will be reading, writing and performing our own Tanka poems based on fireworks. We will then be writing an imaginative story, using wonderful descriptive phrases, based on the book "The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams." Later on in the term, we will be learning about playscripts and will also write and perform our own.
In Maths, we will be continuing to focus on improving our fluency and developing our written methods of multiplication, division and fractions. Please help us practise where you can, especially by supporting your child with learning their times tables and division facts.
Our Geography learning will be based on continents and continental drift. Our focus is extreme earth so we will be exploring the causes and impact of volcanoes on human and physical geography. Our Art this term is based on Hokusai and his Great Wave. We will be exploring various media and sketching skills to create our version of it.

Year 3 had an exciting trip to Celtic Harmony where they were transported back in time to a Neolithic village and experienced the life as it would have been in Stone Age. They foraged herbs and plants, made stew and even witnessed making fire by rubbing wood. Later they enjoyed their time in a roundhouse with thatched roof and made their own dens from sticks and leaves. It was enlightening to know that Stone Age was a time of discovery and growth. Trading activities were a fantastic way to learn about the goods and valuables of that time period alongside brushing up on some Maths skills. The day ended in an exciting weapons making activity followed by hunting where a mammoth hunt was the most celebrated act and taught valuable group skills.
St Albans Cathedral
Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to St Albans Cathedral. They took part in a maths trail around the Cathedral where they investigated different shapes and symmetry in real life. Later, they measured the width, length and even height of the Cathedral using both standard and non-standard measures. Finally, they explored the beautiful stained glass windows and then created their own.
