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 drawn portraits of Stig and written a descriptive piece of writing about 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 learning to make our own mini loaves of bread. We were able to use our measuring skills to weigh out our ingredients.
SAFC – Disability Awareness
Over the past couple of weeks Year 3 have been learning about different disabilities. We have been playing different sports/games with one of our senses taken away. This gave us an idea what it would be like to have an impairment. We have had so much fun! So far, we have learned about Autism, ADHD, visual impairments and hearing impairments. The children look forward to the sessions each week. We cover classroom based learning and physical activities in the hall.
