Another place to find Year 3 work!
The government have launched an online learning platform ' The Oak National Academy '. From the home page, go to ' online classroom ' and then ' subject - year 3 ' and you will find English, Maths and Foundation ( rest of curriculum ) lessons. You may wish to dip into this alongside or instead of the activities we are sending home.
*PLEASE NOTE - IF YOUR CHILD IS FINDING THE YEAR 3 ACTIVITIES SET TOO DIFFICULT, YEAR 2 RESOURCES ON THIS PLATFORM AND ON WHITE ROSE MATHS WOULD BE BENEFICIAL REVISION FOR THEM*
Year 3 have been working with maps. We have compared Victorian and modern maps of Escrick, used British Isles and European maps to build our knowledge of countries and capital cities, and we have even created a human map of Northern Europe. Today we drew our own maps of the Forest School area and played a compass directions game.
w/c 12.01.20 Victorians topic work
Role play - child labourers in a Victorian cotton mill; exploring the movement of workers from countryside to town in our Lowry inspired Victorian urban streets art work.
Stone Age date sorting 7.11.19
We worked in groups to sort events from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age into date order. There were some massive numbers! Our largest number was 4,500,000 years ago, when the earliest “humans” were in Africa.
Volcanoes homework 4.10.19
Well done to all Year 3 children - what an incredible selection of models, posters, PowerPoints and PDFs we shared in class this week! We were really impressed by the standard of work. Many thanks to all the mums, dads and other helpers at home. Shown here is a selection of models and posters.
Forest School skills 3.10.19
We learned how to tie a reef knot and how to lash sticks together to make a square frame. Lots of perseverance was needed!
27.9.19 RE topic - What does it mean to be a Christian in Britain today?
We thought about how Christians show their beliefs in church. We matched Bible quotations to activities we might see going on in church and made freeze frames to illustrate singing hymns, taking communion, praying, listening to Bible stories and sharing at harvest time.
26.9.19 Forest School
Linked to our topic on rocks and minerals, we have been taking soil samples and analysing what they contain.. animal, vegetable and mineral matter! We have also created our own erupting volcanoes. Our “lava” was made by mixing bicarbonate of soda with vinegar - the chemical reaction of the alkali and acid made bubbles of carbon dioxide.
20.9.19 British Values
We have been thinking about the value of “individual liberty” and everybody’s right to have a voice. We talked about why Greta Thunberg was in the news and about the climate change issues she is championing. Then we made our own climate change posters and banners.
