Mrs Pape/Mrs Peters - Year 3 - 2020/21

Design and technology project 1.7.21: Last week we learned how to make a pneumatic system. This week we designed and created moving monsters. At least one part of our monster had to move, for example a mouth that opened, a tail that moved or an eye that bulged out. We created pneumatic systems to make our monsters move.

17.6.21 Making coil pots. We learned how to build up from the base using coils of clay, smoothing the sides as we went so our pots looked good and were strong and sturdy.

Making fruit kebabs! We designed them using their French names! Apologies if your photo isn’t here - some were blurry.

17.5.21 We have been looking at drawing faces and facial expressions in our art lessons. We have drawn ourselves as some fierce-looking Vikings!

More work on relationships and feelings with Ceri, our PSHE teacher this half term.

More challenges to keep you busy this week! 


Challenge 1 - Double Bounce 30 second challenge

For this challenge you do 2 little jumps every time you turn the rope once, keeping your feet together side-by-side at all times.

Our video shows you how to build your successes by starting with 1 double bounce in 1 rope turn, then building on it a bit at a time.


Challenge - Hop & Swap 30 second challenge

For this challenge you do 2 little hops on each foot every time you turn the rope once. Our video shows you how to build your successes by starting with 1 double hop in 1 rope turn, then building on it a bit at a time


Challenge 3 - Side Swing 30 second challenge

For this challenge you do 1 rotational swing of the rope on each side of your body, then open your arms and jump the rope once, and then repeat the whole move. Our video shows you how to build your successes by starting with 1 side swing + 1 jump, then building on it a bit at a time.


If you don't have a skipping rope, you could pretend!!

Remember your outdoor PE kits and wellies/boots next Wednesday.

First week back! Time for a new Year 3 history topic.

We have started learning about The Normans. We found out when they arrived in Britain, and we know that the story of the invasion is recorded on the Bayeux Tapestry. We created our own Norman Style shield designs, complete with symbols and Colour choices inspired by the Normans.

We also found out that Clifford’s Tower in York was built by the Normans. Watch out for more sign of the Normans if you go to visit York!
