Parent Overview Autumn Term - Tribal Tales and Tremors
Summer Term 2018
In Year 3, we thought about how Jesus' apostles felt after the Resurrection, particularly after the miraculous catch of fish. We visited our friends at Sacred Heart School in Birmingham, and also had a trip to a mosque to learn about how Muslims worship.
In Maths, we explored the properties of shapes.
We thought about heroes and villains, and used our sewing skills to make monster puppets.
We explored how water is transported in plants, and thought about why our experiments with celery might not work in hot weather!
Autumn Term 2017
In Year 3, we have studied the ancient Greeks; we particularly enjoyed making our own Greek pots from clay, and exploring the myth of King Midas. In Maths, we looked at how to collect and present data, such as by using pictograms.
We prepared for many in the class to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time by exploring God's loving forgiveness and how he acts through his priests to bring us back to him.
Autumn One 2017
In Year 3, we have had a busy start to the year. As well as our super writing based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and doing fantastic number and calculation work in Maths, we have been busy baptising babies, being geologists, archaeologists and palaeontologists and have enjoyed keeping healthy through swimming sessions a dance workshop. We have also been reflecting on how we make good choices, so that we get on well together as God’s children.
In 2016, as part of our topic on prehistoric Britain, Year 3 had our own archaeology dig. We were learning the steps archaeologists go through, beginning with marking out the area, then digging carefully with trowels. Next we brushed the soil from artefacts before washing them in water using a toothbrush. Finally we sorted the artefacts into find trays putting similar objects together. We recorded our findings by taking photos and making notes with the IPad.
