Year 3 Curriculum Map Overview:
This term, we have continued our enquiry `Can food on its own keep us healthy?` We cannot wait to learn more about our skeletons, the food groups and the inspirational Frida Kahlo. Alongside this, we are exploring writing features such as; expanded noun phrases and adverbs using `George's Marvellous Medicine` by Roald Dahl as our key text. Please check our page for updates on our fantastic learning!
In Week 3, we had a maths day based around space and the solar system! We learnt about right angles and how we can use them to describe direction. We learnt there are 4 right angles turns within a whole turn and practised turning left and right using different amounts of right angle turns. We followed and created directions and then finally created our own space mazes. Can you safely pass through our space mazes?
This term we have focused on settling into the Juniors. We have learnt all about what it means to be a `Purple Learner` and began our enquiry `Can food on its own keep us healthy?` In this enquiry, we will be scientists who learn all about animal's skeletons, muscles and the right types and amount of nutrition needed. In addition, we will be artists who explore drawing using inspiration from Frida Kahlo and be farmers as we harvest and cook using produce from our allotment! Alongside this, our writing will be based on the book `George's Marvellous Medicine` by Roald Dahl. Please check our page for updates on our fantastic learning!
Article 13: We have the right to find things out, through making art.
To start being artists this year, we each sketched our own self potraits. Before we did this, we had to draw a picture of ourselves with one continuous line. It was really hard to do this without lifting our pens off the table but we each gave it a shot and we were really happy with the results!
Article 12: We have the right to an opinion.
After many of us gave our speeches as to why we would make great Voices of the Change-maker, we all had the opportunity to vote for who we wanted to represent 3KP!
It was a really exciting experience and we enjoyed going into the hall to cast our votes like a real election. It is so nice to know that our opinions matter and our voices are heard! We can't wait for the next one.
Article 13: We have the right to find things out.
Our book this term is 'George's Marvellous Medicine' and to kick off reading the book, we decided it would be fun to create our own marvellous medicines, using ingredients you would NOT want to have in your medicine. We are not sure they would be successful in making anyone feel better, but we sure had fun mixing all the ingredients together and seeing what would happen. It was a blast, except for the fact that we left the classroom with a horrible smell!
Article 31: The right to rest and play.
After being locked away for ages, we were finally allowed to play with our wonderful playpod! The PTA had spent ages clearing it out and re-stocking it with new and exciting junk! Playpod helps us to develop our imaginations and release important energy. Have a look at what we've been doing today.
PE - Article 24: We have the right to be healthy.
This term, we are lucky enough to have the sports coach for our outdoor PE lessons, where we are learning all about football. So far, we have learned how to correctly pass the ball to our partners, where we keep and eye on the ball so we can aim it in the correct direction. Did you know, when you pass the ball, you need to use the inside of your foot? As well as this, we have been using our pengiun feet to dribble the ball and keep control of it. Have a look at the pictures below to see what we have been up to.
