Time and Tide Museum Trip

 

Yesterday, we visited the Time and Tide Museum to bring together our learning about the Romans. We learnt how to march, hold our shields and make shield walls with a Roman soldier and how to look after ourselves with a Roman woman. Then, we had storytelling time with a Celt and discovered how to be an Iceni warrior. It was a great day, enjoyed by all! Thank you to our parent volunteers.

Homework for the 23.7.18

For the next 3 weeks, I would like you to use your weekly homework time to create a Roman chariot. We will be holding a competition and evaluating each other's chariots during the last week of term. It is about the effort put in, not necessarily about whether it moves or not. You can use whichever materials you can find - it might be a good chance to do some recycling? You can plan your ideas in your homework books if you wish and be prepared to talk about why you have chosen to make it a certain way. Be creative and have fun with it! I look forward to seeing them.

We have been learning about the Roman Army and how they dressed, what they used to fight and how a soldier may have felt. Using these ideas, produce a piece of art to illustrate the Roman Army. You may want to draw one soldier with speech bubbles, a scene of the Romans coming towards the Iceni tribe, soldiers leaving Rome or any other illustration that portrays the army. You may use coloured pencils, pencils, felt tip pens, paints or anything else you have at home. Be creative and we will put some on display. J

Homework for the 11.6.18

We are going to be learning lots about the Romans this half term. To gather what you learn at the Castle Museum on Tuesday, I would like you to complete a spider diagram about what information you have already learnt, what questions you have about the Romans and any other information you would like to include. You could add pictures or diagrams also. I will then shape the learning to answer any curiosities you may have!

Castle Museum Trip

 

Year 3 and 4 thoroughly enjoyed their day at the Castle Museum yesterday. We participated in four different activities as a class with either a Roman or somebody from an Iceni tribe. We created a torc necklace, looked at Roman artefacts, became a member of the Iceni tribe and looked at the Roman army weapons. Lots of children enjoyed their Roman themed lunch, even though some were put off by the smell of sardines!

Summer 2

 

Our topic for this half term is 'Lights, Camera, Action'. During this, we will be focusing on the Romans and the impact they had on Britain. Incorporating themes from our history and geography topic, we will be writing our own newspaper articles and preparing and reading performance poetry. We will be looking at Roman entertainment and creating our own chariots and eating some Roman inspired food. In maths, year 3 will be continuing with our measurement unit and will then move on to shape and statistics. The curriculum map is below. We are thoroughly looking forward to becoming a 'Roman' and researching further during our trips to the Castle Museum and Time and Tide Museum.

 

P.E will be carried out on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. There will be time for children to get changed at school. Year 3 swimming will be on a Wednesday and Friday morning - thank you to those who have volunteered to help. 

 

Any questions or queries, feel free to come in for a chat!

Homework for w/b 4.6.18

 

There will be no set homework in homework books over the break. However, please keep reading and practising times tables with your child. Additionally, wherever possible, ask your child for the time - can they tell you it digitally? Can they draw it on a clock? Would they be able to tell you what time it will be in an hours time?

Our first challenge was to create a house that could float in order to 'beat a flood'. Once we created our houses, we then had the challenge of using different materials as stilts to hold the house up. We were given either marshmallows, chocolate, butter, ice cubes or sugar cubes to help us do this. We had a lot of fun testing each material and seeing whether the house would hold up or whether it would sink into the flood!

Homework for 23.4.18

 

This half term our topic is ‘Great Britons’. We will be looking at lots of different British authors, including Philip Pullman, who we have already created a fact file for. Your task for this week is to create another fact file for a famous British children’s author. You can choose whomever you wish and they can be an author of stories, poems or non-fiction. You can set it out with bullet points, as a poster, a story map of their life or in any other creative way you can think of.

Summer 1

 

This half term our topic is ‘Great Britons’. We will be looking at various British authors and using their work to influence our writing and drama in English. States of matter and the water cycle will be our focus in science and geography amongst learning about Great Britons in the science world. We will be carrying on with fractions and then onto measurement in maths and looking at L.S Lowry and David Hockney in art. Please bring art aprons into school, as it may get messy. Mrs Laws will continue to teach recorders during music on a Thursday morning and volunteers are welcome. Mrs Pandit will carry on with German on a Wednesday. Our curriculum map is attached.

 

P.E will be on a Wednesday and Thursday for everybody. We are fortunate to have a football coach coming in on a Wednesday and Mr Keating will lead the Thursday session. We will continue to have a short Friday session for half of the class each week and the other half will have extra sessions with Mrs Woodards and myself. Children will be told their groups and a letter will be sent to parents. I have arranged it into two blocks rather than alternating each week, as I think this might be easier to remember. Please ensure they have their kit.

Easter Holidays

Firstly, thank you to the parent volunteers who walked with us to the church this afternoon; it is very much appreciated. Secondly, there will be no homework in the books over the holidays. However, please use this extra time to practise times tables (particularly 3s, 4s and 8s) and read lots for the sponsored read. Remember to write this in your reading records.

We are going to be creating a ‘meal fit for a hare’ during the last few days of term to practise our food technology skills. For your homework, I would like you to design a meal that you think a hare would enjoy (within reason) and label it using some adjectives to get a hare’s mouth watering! For example, you might want to include a ‘juicy crunchy carrot chopped into slender slices’. Feel free to draw your meal, write a recipe or label a few pictures. We will gather these ideas in our groups on Monday – come prepared!

Homework for the 19.03.18

We have begun to look at different fractions in maths. We have looked at finding tenths of a number, finding fractions of a shape and we are now looking at finding fractions of an amount. I would like you to find some real life examples of fractions. You can use anything in your house or outside. You may like to cut a pizza into tenths and show me 1/10 or separate your sweets into quarters. It is entirely up to you, be as creative as you can! I will take photocopies to go on our working wall.

Mild – Focus on halves, tenths and quarters with one as the numerator. E.g – 1/10, ½, 1/4

Medium – Focus on the above and thirds. Use any numerator. E.g – 2/10, 2/3, ¾

Hot – Challenge yourselves. There is no limit to numerators or denominators! Have fun J

We have been looking at food chains and technical vocabulary associated with food chains. I would like you to research a breed of hare and find out about their habitat and their food chain. You could create a poster, a fact file, an explanation, a diagram or a picture – it is up to you. Examples of different breeds could include an Arctic Hare or Alaskan Hare, but there are many more! Any trouble with researching at home, please see me and I will find some time for you to complete this task.

Homework for 26.2.18

 

For the next few weeks, our topic will be ‘Go Go Hares’. This week, your homework is to get into the mind of our leveret that we have in school. Thinking about the personality that you think it has, present what the little hare gets up to after all the teachers go home. Is he/she cheeky? Do they steal from the school kitchen? Are they super-tidy? Do they polish throughout the night? The choice is yours. You can present your thoughts in a descriptive writing piece, a diary entry, pictures with speech bubbles or through a map of the school. Be as creative as you wish.

Spring Term 2

 

Welcome back to Spring Term 2!

 

For the next few weeks our topic is 'Go Go Hares', linking with our participation in the 'Go Go Hares' art trail around Norwich. We will be learning about our local area, living things and their habitats and the digestive system. We have also secured an exciting science session with the RSPB team and will be attending the 'Get Gaming' festival at the Forum to progress our computing knowledge. In English, we will be focusing on fables and letter writing, with our guided reading book, 'The Great Tug of War', having links to this. Year 3 will be continuing with multiplication and division, before moving onto fractions before Easter. 

 

Dance will remain on a Tuesday and P.E on a Thursday afternoon. Alternate groups of children will still participate in P.E on a Friday morning. Homework will continue being given out on a Tuesday and in on a Monday. Similarly, spelling tests and reading log checks will be on Fridays.

 

Any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me. :)

February Break

 

Other than spellings and reading, there will be no homework over the half-term. Apologies for having to rearrange the parent meetings, we will be in contact soon about new dates. I hope you enjoy your break and look forward to seeing you all on Monday the 19th.

STEM day at Carrow Road

 

Yesterday, Year 3 went on their trip to Norwich City Football Club. We spent the day with a team from STEM, who taught us all about the energy which is used at Carrow Road. We were given a tour of the football ground and information about the energy usage was provided as we went. Afterwards, we ate our lunch in the 'viewing box' and then had time to prepare our findings from the morning and present to the class. A very enjoyable day!

Homework for 15.1.18

 

This half term we are looking at inventions. If you could create any invention in the world, what would you create and why? It cannot be something that already exists, use your imagination. You might want to include a piece of descriptive writing or a diagram to help to explain how it works.

Spring Term 1

This half term our topic is ‘Mission…Inventors’. We will be studying ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes and learning about electricity, computer programming and designing our own robots. Multiplication and division will be our key focus for maths lessons and we will be continuing with recorders, German, P.E and R.E.

 

We are fortunate to be having a dance teacher coming in on Tuesdays to teach Year 3 dance. Owing to this, please make sure children have their P.E kits in school. In addition, P.E will remain on a Thursday afternoon and Friday morning with Mr Keating. On Fridays, children will be divided into two groups. One will carry out a short P.E lesson and the other will have a group work session with Mrs Woodards and I. Together we will work on key English and maths skills. This will alternate each week and so, children will have time to change for P.E during school when they know which group they are in.

 

Owing to the slight change in timetabling, homework will be ‘handed in’ on a Monday and ‘given out’ on a Tuesday, which will still give children time over the weekend. Checking reading logs and spellings will continue on a Friday. A note to recorder volunteers, recorder lessons will now be first thing on a Thursday with Mrs Laws.

 

A reminder to anybody who has not returned trip letters for Tuesday 9th January, could you please return the forms by Monday.

 

Wishing you all a ‘Happy New Year’!

We are not in school next Friday and then it is half-term, so for this piece of homework you have 3 weeks to complete it. We have been learning about different types and functions of teeth. I would like you to create a game that you could play with your partners in class all about teeth. You could create a game of snap, where you have to match the picture of the teeth with the definition or design a little model of your teeth and ask children to connect the labels. It is completely up to you! Try not to spend longer than 45 minutes on it. Good luck!
