This half term we will be investigating food chains in science and learn about how animals find their food. We will learn which animals are predators and which animals might be their prey. We will link this to our writing in English as we will be writing a non-chronological report on animals as well as writing a balanced argument about keeping wild animals in captivity. Our visit to Twycross zoo will support our learning too. During our guided reading lessons we will be reading George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl where we will learn how to infer information from characters as well as making our own marvellous medicines.
In RE we will be taking a closer look at the Easter story and relating some of the messages we learn to our own lives and experiences. For example, how Good Friday turned a bad experience around into something good. We will be learning all about coding in computing and will be using scratch to create and animate our own sprite! We will be adding story detail and backgrounds to make our animation more engaging.
Year 3 have had an exciting and busy first term. They have learned about bones, muscles, story writing, times tables, fractions, addition, subtraction, heroes and villains, rocks and the Romans! We also had our very own wedding which fit in with our RE theme of Christianity. The children had a wonderful time and were beautifully behaved in church. We also had a visit from Titus the Roman Soldier. He was a wealth of knowledge and gave the children a wonderful insight in to the world of Romans. Have a look through our pictures of some of these events.
