Year 3 had a fantastic time on Friday reading to their buddy class in Reception. After they read their banded book, the Reception children chose a library book that they wanted to share with the Year 3s.
For our ‘British Values’ curriculum day last Friday, Year 3 were learning about representing others, the importance of questions, voting, tolerance and respect. Here is a picture of us ‘voting’ for our favourite things.
Yesterday in RE, Year 3 were thinking about the question ‘What is morality?’.
They discussed moral dilemmas, where it difficult to decide what is the right or wrong choice, and wrote down the possible solutions to the scenarios.
Year 3 have been enjoying their outdoor learning sessions linked with their current geography topic ‘rivers’.
The children worked in pairs to make a model of a river. They used key vocabulary from their class learning, talking about the source, meander, gravity and river mouth. They also talked about some of the plants and animals that live on river banks and about the problem of erosion.

This week we celebrated World Mental Health Day in Year 3. We had an interesting discussion about what ‘mental health’ means before creating a monster that has similar qualities to each child. Children then discussed similarities and differences in people’s qualities.
Year 3 have had a great afternoon learning all about algorithms and coding in their computing lesson today!
Take a look at Year 3’s amazing artwork!
Year 3 read the story ‘The Dot’ and created their own artwork inspired by this.
