Throughout the year the children are guided through a series of Learning Adventures. Below is a review of the last Learning Adventure with some associated photos, ENJOY!
Summer 1 Learning Adventure - Home and Away
The children’s continued engagement with this term’s adventure of ‘Home and Away’ has been delightful. The main highlight of this term has been our exciting trip into Andover where we visited St Mary’s Church and the Iron Age Museum. All adults involved were very proud of how all the Year 3’s conducted themselves on the trip, especially the resilience they showed walking there, back and all around town!
In English the children have been writing their own information leaflet on Andover, exploring how this town has changed over time. They have used a range of sources to gather facts and present these in their leaflets.
In Maths we have been consolidating and extending our skills for fractions, time and measurement challenges. During one of our mini adventures, we went outside to measure the water from our ‘River Anton’ as well as creating our own delicious flapjack recipes in preparation for our school trip. In Science we have been studying plants. We have enjoyed finding out about the different parts of a plant, as well as using our art skills to create some observational drawings.
Spring 2 Learning Adventure - Home and Away
The children’s’ enthusiasm with this term’s topic of ‘Home and Away’ has been so rewarding to see! So many have continued their learning at home and brought in wonderful items and information to share with the class.
One of the highlights in English has been writing a Non- Chronological report on the World famous French Artist ‘Claude Monet.’ The children applied their skills as a researcher to find out some interesting facts and then independently wrote a fantastic report telling the reader everything they could possibly want to know!
In Maths we have been consolidating and extending our skills for multiplication and division, shape, and addition and subtraction within different measurements. We have also been able to apply our measuring skills in order to make some delicious French Gougeres for our parent celebration event! In Geography, we answered our very own question of ‘What is a mile?’ and ‘How long does it take a walk a mile?’ by walking outside as a class around Pilgrims’ Cross. From this adventure, we started to realise how far Andover really is from France (350 miles!) Other adventures that we have loved have been Book Week, the Plannet days and working with Mr Riche creating our prints of the Eiffel Tower.
Spring 1 Learning Adventure - The Ocean
The children in year three have really enjoyed finding out about the dangers of plastics in our oceans. In English we wrote persuasive reports on the dangers to sea life from this increasing threat. We wrote this hoping that people would read them and help us make a difference in God’s world. In Maths we have been working on measurement and addition and subtraction. We have also applied our increasing knowledge to solve some tricky fishy word problems, which really made us think! In science we investigated light sources and how shadows are made and in RE we looked at the bible story when Jesus called the first disciples to follow him and become ‘fishers of men.’
In our PE sessions we have been improving our fitness and working on how to work well together as a team.
Thank you for your continued support with homework and reading. The children’s spelling is really improving! - It is greatly appreciated by us all.
