Sea Lions and Sea Otters

Welcome to the Year 3 Webpage. We hope you enjoy finding out what we do!

 

Here is our Autumn term curriculum brochure.

Year 3 visited Charmouth Heritage Centre on Monday 14th October.

The weather wasn't on our side but that did not stop the children having a fantastic, if damp, day.

The children began the day by finding our more about our beautiful Jurassic coast and why Charmouth is such an important place to visit. 

They were then shown more about fossils and fossil hunting. The staff at the centre showed them not only what fossils they might find on the beach but also tips to help them find them!

The fossil hunting on the beach was very exciting! We found lots of different types of fossils. Even though it was wet and windy, the children were determined to take home a momento of their visit!

Our Summer Term topic is Spectacular Stone Age and Ruling Romans!

Here are some ideas for Roman Day on Thursday 11th July.

To make a tunic boys could just use a large T-shirt and put a belt around the middle. Plain ones work best.

Or a Toga!

There is no obligation to dress up , but it does help the children feel a part of the whole experience.

Sea Otters are doing really well with their swimming and it is great to see their positive attitude shining through

We enjoyed our CR8 day. We co-operated to make our dinosaurs.

"Flight" was the inspiration for Year3 Arts Week 16-20 October 17

Children learnt about the Wright Brothers, the Montgolfier Brothers and Amelia Earhart.  Sea Otters made junk model planes as well as designing and making their own bi-planes using wooden pegs and lolly sticks. They designed their own Hot Air Balloons and made 3D models, they also collaged aeroplanes and designed bird wings using paint drops and blowing the paint with a straw.  We also had a paper plane competition and a science experiment to see who could keep their egg from breaking when dropped from a height! The children had a chance to draw a "birds eye view" perspective for the windows of the aeroplane we created in Sea Otters classroom.

2017 / 2018

Our new and exciting year started off with a trip back in time to the Land Of The Dinosaurs!

Both Year 3 Classes were thrown back into History through the amazingly fantastic Science Dome today. The children were taught about the earliest forms of earth and how it has changed over the last 245 million years. They were introduced to Dinosaurs through the interactive 360 degree display inside the dome and were immersed into a new world with smiles and fascination all round. The children also watched a feature film, 'Dinosaurs @ Dusk' where they took to the skies and discovered the origins of flight following a teenage girl, Lucy, and her father, who share a passion for flying and all things that fly. The children witnessed paragliding over the countryside, and experienced the soaring of pterosaurus and the ancestors of the modern bird; the feathered dinosaurs. Children were also given insights into continental drift, proper motion of stars, asteroids and impacts, extinctions and the congvergent development of flight amoung species.

 

All In all a brilliant experience the children were 'wowed' by.


 

 

 

Sports Day was a rather hot affair.....

On Thursday 15th we had a visit from a scientist, Ian Dunne, who came to teach us about different science concepts through experiments and interesting explanations.  

To say the pupils were enthralled is an understatement!!
