Science Week! 

We did lots of experiments based on the book by Roald Dahl, Georges Marvellous Medicine. We looked at Rainbow Rain Clouds and made swirly patterns using milk and food colouring and discussed surface tension.

Science Investigation Challenge!  (on your Homework Grid)

How far will a toy car travel on different surfaces? 

Investigate the question and measure how far the car travels. Then answer these questions:

Which surface did the car travel on the furthest? 

Which surface did the car travel on the least?

Why do you think some surfaces are better than others?

Here at Newhall Junior School, there has been an unusual discovery. The caretaker has found some dragon eggs in the hall. We have been wondering where they have come from and which types of dragons they could be. We were told that the eggs need to be protected and, through drama, we explored ways we could protect them.

What is beauty? Maria retold a Greek myth about a golden apple given to the fairest Greek God. We then discussed what beauty is and created a poem.

Lets learn about fossils!

In Science we have been learning about Fossils and how they are formed. We became Palaeontologists, just like the famous Palaeontologist Mary Anning, and uncovered many hidden fossils which we identified.

The Secrets of Stonehenge!

We have been discussing the Bronze Age in Topic. We focused today on why Stonehenge could have been built and explored the secrets it may hold through drama. We then made a class model using clay.

We have been archaeologists today with Professor Hickins. We have found a skeleton from the Bronze Age with many artefacts buried alongside it. We have been thinking about what the objects are, what they are made of and what they could be used for.

We have been observing different types of rocks using magnifying glasses and discussing what we notice about them - the colours, texture, and any patterns or sparkly, crystal bits. Year 3 even had a go at classifying some of the rocks with their observations.

Today we travelled back in time, 15,000 years ago, where we met Om, a Stone Age woman. We were able to ask her lots of questions about what life was like back then. We learnt about the tools her people used, how they cooked, the clothes they wore, what they ate and many more interesting facts.

We have got off to a good start in our history topic. We have looked at cave paintings, how they were made and what was drawn during this period. Have a look at some of our work below.

Welcome to Class 3JM.

Welcome to Year 3 and Newhall Junior School.  We will be sharing our learning and adventures in school on this page throughout the year so please check back regularly.

 

This term we will begin by refreshing our memories after the holidays with some of the Year 2 expectations within Maths and English.

In English the children will be:-  

  • focusing upon ensuring they fully understand and use spelling patterns and their phonic knowledge and begin to learn some of the expected Year 3 spellings. (see the link on the Year 3 page for the words children should be able to read and spell by the end of Year 3 & 4)
  • focus upon developing their ability to manipulate language to create 'super' sentences from which they can begin to then further develop with their Year 3 learning.
  • continue to develop their reading fluency and begin to build upon their deeper understanding of what they have read.

 

In Maths, the children will be introduced to the Singapore approach to teaching which is has a proven success rate.  We will begin this journey by:-

  • ensuring the children's understanding of place value(tens and units)
  • developing mental recall of simple addition and subtraction facts.
  • revising their knowledge of multiplication to rapid recall times tables.

 

In our theme work this half term the children will be learning the following:-

Science - Rocks and Soils, which will involve the children developing an understanding of the types of rock and soils on our planet and exploring how these are formed.

History (Topic) - Stone Age to Iron Age, which will involve the children learning about the life within this time period and comparing with their own experiences today.

 

The children will be provided with a home reading book, weekly spellings and a homework grid from which they can choose their activity to share with the class each week.  

 

If you are unsure or have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I am on the playground each morning before school.

 

Thanks Miss Morgan
