Year 3 - Deer
Welcome to Year 3 Deer class! Home to Mr Kingsnorth, Miss Broughm and Mrs Kelly as well as our very own herd of Daring Deers. Moving from KS1 to KS2 can be a scary time but it also full of adventure and exciting new topics. Our topics this the year will include: The Golden Ticket, Let it Shine, Our World is amazing! Sticks, Stones and Mammoths, May the force be with you and I was there!
Term 1, saw the Daring Deers learn all about the golden ticket, with our key focus using Talk 4 Writing actions to help with our learning. We have been learning different ‘sentence signposts’ to help us start sentences with our instructions on How to Trap an Oompa Loompa. Throughout the term we having been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which has been great fun and has helped us write our own chapter for the book.
In our History this term, we have looked at the industrial revolution and how the Victorians impacted the food we are able to buy today. All the children agreed that they would not have wanted to go a Victorian school and face the scary prospect of the cane!
In our Science this term, we have focused on nutrition and the importance of eating a balanced diet to keep our bodies healthy. The children performed an investigation into the effects of different liquids on their teeth and the results made them all want to brush regularly!
In DT, we have looked at the importance of hygiene and food safety when handling and preparing food. The children had great fun making a Victorian sponge using a Victorian recipe. They have also had the opportunity to try different breads and made their very own bread sticks!!
The Daring Deers have worked extremely hard is term and are looking forward to daring each other to beat their own personal bests. Next term will be Let It Shine where we will focus on light and shadows whilst learning our times tables, so get ready to gallop into their next topic!
