Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Our teachers are Mrs Dunne (Mon-Thurs) and Miss Bateman (Fri). Our TA is Mrs Howard (am).

This term we are continuing with our WW2 topic and after half term we will be visiting ‘The 1940’s Experience’ in the Lincolnsfield Centre in Bushey! In English we will be continuing to write evacuee letters, describing an experience of being in the Blitz and writing play scripts linked to our WW2 topic. 

In Art we will be focusing on sketching figures when producing sketches of evacuees. Linked with D&T we will be studying rationing during the war. We will follow and write instructions to cook and sample some war time recipes (If I have some parent volunteers!). When focusing on ‘dig for victory’ we will be creating our own persuasive posters!

In computing we will be creating an animation and fixing bugs when using ‘Scratch’. We will also combine our Computing and Design and Technology skills when we design the setting and props for a WW2 animation. We will then create a stop motion animation film using the i-pads.

In Science, we shall be investigating materials and investigating if any materials could have been useful in WW2! Following that we shall be moving on to studying plants as we move into Spring. In Art, flowers and repeated patterns in textile designs will be our focus and we will  experiment with block printmaking to produce a class textile.

In March, we will be studying maps and our local area.  This information will help us produce a non-chronological report (leaflet) about Chipperfield.

As we move through the term, we shall be developing our knowledge of the value Hope and Forgiveness.
