Non-Negotiables for Year 3
Autumn Term 1
In Autumn 1 our topic was Humans and Animals and our class book was The Incredible Books Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers. We had great fun exploring a whole range of books by Oliver Jeffers and writing our own versions. In topic we learnt about animals and humans, how we are the same and different, about foods we should eat and how eating a balanced diet is important. In Art we developed our sketching skills and worked on drawing portraits of ourselves. We also explored illustrations in Oliver Jeffers books and drew pictures of characters in his style.
We had great fun rehearsing and developing our speaking, listening and presentation skills during National poetry Day, for Black History and for our end of term class assembly. Thank you to all parents that attended and continue to show us so much support.
This Term our topic is Forces and Magnets. Our class text is The Iron Giant by Ted Hughes. We will be exploring the text during guided reading sessions and in our writing.
In Science we will be learning about different forces that act on objects and investigating magnets.
In DT children will be designing, making and evaluating a model Robot.
In Geography we will be developing our map skills and learning about our local environment. We will be comparing and contrasting the Uk and Australia.
Here’s to another successful half term!
