Spring 1 Homework
Please read our half termly curriculum letters for more information.
This half term, Year 3, were very lucky to have a visit from the author, Karen Owen! Karen shared with us her journey of becoming an author. She inspired us my reminding us that we can all be writers.
Year 3, had lots of fun this half term learning about 'Animals Including Humans'. We were able to identify that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement. We had a lot of fun creating our own bionic hand using paper (to represent the skin), straws (to represent the bones) and string (to represent the tendons) to show how our hand works.
Science Museum Trip
Year 3, went on an exciting visit to the Science Museum to help enrich their learning in science. We spent some time in an interactive gallery, learning through play, the forces that are around us. In the afternoon, we took part in a workshop called 'Feel the Force'. This interactive workshop demonstrated clearly the differences forces around us and how they work. We also spent some time exploring the museum too.
West Norwood Picture House
Year 3 enjoyed a trip to West Norwood Picture House. As part of the 'Into Film Festival' we watched 'The Little Mermaid'. The children will be writing a film review based on the film, which will be entered into a competition run by Into Film Festival.
Black History Month
Year 3 had fun learning all about Nicola Adams. We wrote an autobiography about her life and her achievements. We also took part in a special boxing class which the children really enjoyed.
Cultural Diversity Day
Year 3, enjoyed dressing up for Cultural Diversity Day. We enjoyed learning about the diverse cultures in our class.
