Our topic this term has been Ancient Egypt. We have learned about the life and beliefs of different Ancient Egyptians including mummification.
As part of art week, we produced Egyptian landscapes. We learned how to create and use different tints as well as warm and cool colours.
We also turned ourselves into pharaohs by studying images and using different materials and tools. We also wrote our names in hieroglyphs.
Our focus in Maths has been place value and addition. The children have used different resources to embed their knowledge of number.
On Thursday 10th October, we visited the Science Museum to learn even more about magnets and forces. Year 3 loved trying out and testing the fifty different experiments in the WonderLab such as the giant friction slides and playing with magnetic liquid. We had a ‘blast’ watching the Flash Bang Wallop Show and even had a few brave Keyworth scientists volunteer in the Feel the Force Show!
Our topic for the start of Spring is the Stone Age! We will be learning all about life thousands of years ago, including animals, clothes, religion, homes and tools. In English, we will be working on the books The First Drawing and Escape from Pompeii.
In Art, we created some landscapes and collages of Stonehenge.
This term it was 3MB’s class assembly all about the Stone Age. We all enjoyed learning our parts and performing in front of the rest of the school, parents and carers. As soon as I find the picture of the children with the mammoth I’ll post it on here for you all!
The children were excellent journalists and wrote some brilliant newspaper articles. Some of them are included below!
In the second half of the term, we will be learning about Spain. We already have a PE trip planned where we will have the opportunity to try some different sports. There will also be a workshop in school where a professional flamenco dancer will come in to teach the children some moves.
In English, we will be reading Cloud Tea Monkeys.
In Art, we have been learning about Picasso and Cubism. We have created our own paintings in the style of Picasso, some of which will be shared here soon.
