Year 3

That was an amazing term that just flew by. All the children have settled in well to their new classroom and life in KS2. We have been impressed by their enthusiasm for learning and there willingness to help their classmates. 

As you would expect there will be lots going on in the run up to Christmas, however that will not prevent us from working hard. There is a lot of dates for your diary including Parents Evenings, please do come to see us if you are unable to make either date and we will be able to find a time that is convenient for you.

I am sure you do not need reminding but we will be going swimming after Christmas. The children will need to wear swimming trunks and  one piece swimming costumes. Perhaps this is something that you could mention to Father Christmas if necessary.

Many thanks for your continued help and support with your fantastic children.

Term 2

Enquiry

Why did the Romans come to Sea Mills? How did they get here? What did they leave behind?

This is a very exciting topic with the emphasis on history and local geography.  We will examine why the Romans came to Sea Mills as well as which other invaders have influenced us. With our rich local links to these ancient travellers we will be looking with fresh eyes at  our surroundings.

 

Day 1 of The Squashed Tomato Challenge

Children start to design a method to transport tomatoes down a Himalayan hillside.

 

Term 1

Enquiry

How do we hear? What is a light source? How can we bounce a beam of light?

We will be encouraging the children to come up with their own ideas and theories to test over the coming term, and hopefully they will discover for themselves the answers to these and many other questions.

This is Year 3 making jungle collages.

Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
