The Amazing Amazon Rainforest

Our topic this half term will focus on the incredible Amazon Rainforest. We will investigate what a rainforest is and where they are found around the world. We will identify the features of the Amazon Rainforest, including some of its amazing flora and fauna. We shall consider how indigenous people live in the Amazon Rainforest and make comparisons to our living styles and community. We will also consider the many threats to the survival of the rainforest, including deforestation.

We have developed our drawing and painting skills by creating rainforest pictures inspired by the artist Henri Rosseau.

Hands On Animals

 

Year 3 have had some very special visitors today. Kelly from Hands On Animals came with a vast amount of knowledge about the rainforest and the animals that live there. She also brought some special guests to help us to get hands on with wildlife. We got to look at and handle: an African rainforest snail, a Madagascan hissing cockroach, a stick insect, a tarantula, a desert leapord gecko, a crested rainforest gecko and a royal python. We had a fantastic time learning lots about the animals and their amazing habitats.

Freeze Frame!

We read Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhyme Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. We had great fun creating freeze frames for the characters and objects in parts of the story . 3M were fantastic actors and everyone could say what their character or object was thinking and feeling.

Can you work out who or what we are?

Year 3 Curriculum Evening Powerpoint

Poetry week

We have been focusing on Roald Dahl's poetry collections during poetry week. We began reading and enjoying the 'Dirty Beasts' collection and then created our own dirty beasts and poems.

Have a read of some of our amazing poems:

 

The Spider

 

The spider does a crafty trick,

On any person that he'll pick.

Now the spider is the boss,

He wraps them up in candy floss.

Now the spider is ready to eat,

Bit by bit he eats the meat.

Before the spider does a dance,

First he does a little prance.

Now the spider has revenge,

He's going to take over Stonehenge.

 

By Aimee G

The Spider

The Spider thinks he's the boss,

Just because his teeth get a floss.

If it is a boy he can spy,

He'll make a human pie.

If it is a fly he's seen,

He starts to get really mean.

 

By Sam O

The Crocodile

On the crocodile's birthday he turns into a snake,

And eats lots of birthday cake.

The crocodile drinks water,

Then goes to visit his daughter.

 

By Evie 

We came together with 3W to go on a word hunt! We found random words then had to find our rhyming siblings to build a rhyming family.

It's time to focus on time🕰

 

This week, in maths, we have been focusing on time. We have been learning to tell time to 5 minute intervals and to convert analogue to digital and vice versa.

We have all worked really hard this week but please help us to practise at home to help us become really confident at telling the time.

Year 3 drama work shop

Today, Miss Winters, a drama teacher at Heysham High School, kindly came to visit Year 3. She helped the children to act out different scenarios focusing on characterisation and projection of voice. The class really enjoyed it and hopefully it will make our acting in the Christmas performance even better! smiley

We have been learning all about the history of film and have found out it all began with moving images. We have looked at how thaumatropes create the illusion of a moving image. Look at us making our own amazing designs.

On Monday, it was RE day! Our focus was Jesus. We listened to stories about Jesus and looked at the different ways he has been portrayed. We were very lucky as we got to visit the Methodist Church and the Church of Ascension. The Minister and Priest told us about Jesus and we looked at the differences between the churches. We also had a visitor called Diana who came to tell us stories about Jesus.

To bring our fantastic 'Land of the Pharaohs' topic to an end, we had a fantastic Egyptian day. We designed and made our own Egyptian death masks, necklaces, bangles and a pyramid gift box.

In maths, we are looking at bar charts. We have interpreted data and used it to create bar charts. Our bar charts had titles, labelled axis and scales. We then asked and answered questions using the data.

This week, we have been very busy becoming embalmers. We couldn't find any Ancient Egpytians to mummify so settled on tomatoes instead. We scooped out the insides and filled the tomato with natron. We've made predictions and will be closely observing the tomatoes to see what will happen to them.

On Thursday and Friday, 3M have been very lucky and have had the opportunity to go to Morecambe High School to go climbing. The whole class tried their very best and everyone went on the wall. Some children even faced their fears and went to the very top! Well done 3M!

On Tuesday, we learned about the different foods the Ancient Egpytians ate. We enjoyed making and eating 'Eesh Baladi', a type of bread the Ancient Egyptians would eat daily.

This week, in Literacy, we are focusing on non-fiction texts. Today, we have been challenged to find many things including: headings, paragraphs, labelled diagrams, sub-headings and fact boxes

We have been considering how different characters may think and feel in the Egyptian Cinderella story. We have sorted different emotions for the main character, Rhodopis, into a zone of relevance.

In literacy, we are enjoying the Egyptian Cinderella story. Take a look at our fantastic acting skills.

We are becoming place value masters in maths! We have been challenging each other to make different two and three digit numbers.

In PE, we have been building our communication and team work skills by creating our own obstacle courses. There were some amazing designs and we had lots of fun trying other groups courses.

This week in maths we are focusing on place value. We have been looking at two and three digit numbers, creating the numbers using base ten and coins.

This week, we have been focusing on working together as a team.

We have built our communications skills, shared ideas and worked together to solve a range of problems.

We have had lots of fun creating towers from art straws, making pyramids using a range of different resources, trying to connect pipes to fill the river and finally mummifying a team member using toilet roll.
