During the Spring term, year 3 have been learning all about the Caribbean. We identified where the Caribbean is on a world map and discussed key geographical features. We then compared this to the UK to identify what is similarities and differences. We learnt how the weather varies throughout the seasons and how the Caribbean experiences a hurricane season.
In maths, we continued our work with multiplication and division and began to link this to money. We then became statisticians learning all about the different ways we can represent data and answered questions based on this. We also learned about perimeter and how to calculate the perimeter of different shapes. We are becoming fantastic problem solvers and our reasoning skills are much improved.
This term the children have been learning to write a set of instructions based on the story “How to wash a woolly mammoth” which links into our topic the Stone Age. The children were able to create a set of instructions on how to wash an animal of their choice. During our topic lessons, children have also been able to design and create a Stone Age dwelling out of clay, a model of Stonehenge and a visit from a man from the Stone Age. The children have also created Stone Age projects at home which we are very proud of.
This half term in English we have been creating our own Mr Men and Little Miss stories based around the writing style of Roger Hargreaves. The children in year 3 have enjoyed creating a story map in chalk on the playground and inventing their own characters.
Our Maths work this half term has had a focus on the four operations: adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.
In Science this half term, the children have explored magnets and forces. They have compared how things move on different surfaces, sorted materials and investigated the strength of magnets. Children have also recorded their findings in tables and bar charts.
