Welcome to Green Class!
Green Class are 27 fantastic, enthusiastic Year 3 children. Our teachers are Mrs Hassan and Mrs Edmunds and our fabulous teaching assistants are Mrs Baird and Mr Eaton. We have a great time learning together! Have a look at our pages to see some exciting things we have been doing.
Our learning journey topic this term is Amazing Amazon.
In English, we will be writing postcards from the rainforest and creating a storybook for children based in the Amazon. We will be writing haiku and cinquain poems on animals of the rainforest. For our homelearning project, we will be creating information texts on an animal of our choice.
Our science topic this term is plants. We will be learning about the different parts of their flower and the jobs that they do. Then we will learn all about the different stages of the life-cycle of a plant, including germination, pollination and seed dispersal. We will create our own investigation to discover what plants need to germinate. With Mrs Baird, we will be growing potatoes and observing and recording their development.
In P.E this half-term we will be focusing on swimming and hockey.
Mrs Baird will be teaching us the French names of different parts of the flower and rainforest animals.
We will be creating animations based in the rainforest, and using the ipads to record adverts for our cereal bars.
Using an atlas, we will find out where rainforests are located around the equator. We will also learn about the different layers of the rainforest and how plants and animals are adapted to survive in the rainforest environment.
We will be using mechanisms to create our own pop-up books and designing, making and evaluating our own packaged cereal bars.
We will be using our sketching skills to create a pastal picture of an animal in the rainforest. We will also create a piece of art based on the work of the artist Roseau. In Forest Skills, we will use our weaving skills to create dream catchers.
Weekly spellings are in half-termly booklets and tested on Friday. Times tables will be tested daily. This will be the main basis of your home learning.
Reading books are sent home daily and children will be given the opportunity to change their reading books everyday. Please try to read with you child for at least three times in the week. Record any reading your child does at home into their home reading record.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries concerning your son/daughter.
