Welcome to Year 3!
Year 3 went on a trip to Elba Park where we looked at the maps to find our way around the park.
The children were able to identify where we were in the park by looking at the map. We stopped at the Miner’s Memorial to look at the history of where we live. Back at school we drew a map of our walk, remembering the route we took and what we saw on the way.
Stig of the Dump
In Year 3 we have been reading Stig of the Dump. We have drew portrait of Stig and written a descriptive piece of writing describing Stig’s cave. We have also made jewellery from clay to represent animal teeth.
In Year 3 we were set a homework project to make a cave painting for our Tribal Tales topic. We used our cave paintings to hold our very own art gallery in the school hall. We advertised our gallery by putting up posters, which we had made in our computing lessons, around the school. Our friends and teachers from around the school came to visit our art gallery. We have really enjoyed our Tribal Tales topic.
In year 3 we have been leaning to make our own mini loaves of bread. We were able to use our measuring skills to weigh out our ingredients.
