Gorillas (Y3)

Welcome to Year 3

Our class teacher is Miss Richardson.  Also supporting us in our learning is Mrs Burgess and Mrs Foley.  Mrs Raggett teaches our class during PPA which is on Monday afternoon

Reading should be completed and recorded at least 4 times a week, If this is accomplished then your child will be entered into a class raffle to win a new book.
They can change their books every mornings or at the end of the day.  
We have PE on Monday and Wednesday. Warm outdoor sportswear and trainers/daps are needed for outdoor PE. Hats are required for the Spring/Summer terms.

Project 3: Is that the way to do it?

Our Learning Expedition in terms 5 and 6 is to create a Punch and Judy-style show to perform to other schools and parents.  Our project has three parts:

Outcome 1:  To write a script for our performance.  We will split into groups and write scripts for short performances of traditional tales such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the Three Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk.

Outcome 2: We will use textiles to make hand puppets.

Outcome 3: Practising and perfecting a piece of violin music to act as a backing track for our performance.

    

Project 2: Are You Like Me?

We wrote to schools and organisations all over the world to ask them questions about what it is like to live where they do.  We had some fantastic replies from people about where they live and work - thank you to those who worked with us on this.

Project 1: What is at the bottom of our pond?

We began the year by exploring our pond.  It is located at the front of the school and was built many years ago.  It has become very overgrown.  We worked together to plan how to change the pond into a fantastic learning resource for the school.  We finished the project by presenting our ideas to a panel of guests from Big Worle who have very kindly agreed to donate a significant amount to the school for the pond redevelopment.

Work is due to start on the pond in May - we will update the site with photographs of this when it happens.
