Year 3 Information

Autumn Term

In Year 3 this half term we are learning about Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, with an emphasis on India. In doing so, we will make geographical comparisons between them and England. We will be finding out about daily life in the different regions, as well as the wildlife which can be found there. In Science we are learning about amazing animals, exploring exoskeletons and endoskeletons, muscles and organs. In PE we will continue to develop striking and fielding skills through games and we will be learning about Indian dancing. In French we are learning to say the different body parts and perfecting how we greet each other and ask questions. We are also learning to code in computing.

We are keen for parents to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help with this we produce Topic Overviews for each term outlining our main topics.

 

Please download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 3. You may also wish to take a look at the Y3 Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. Please talk to us if you would like more information.

Cross Country Championship

The children in KS2 had a fantastic morning at Netherhall taking part in the annual Cambridge CSSP Cross Country Championship! The key theme of this year’s event was ‘determination’ and the Queen Emma team certainly were determined! We were so proud of all who took part. We look forward to returning again next year!

The children of Queen Emma remember

To honour all who lost their lives in WW1, every child in Queen Emma made a poppy to create a whole school art installation. Come to the top of the Atrium stairs and take a look.

 

Year 3

English

September

We have been using Talk for Writing techniques to explore and learn ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura. The adventure story is about a boy who time travels back to the stone age and meets a girl who shows him what stone age life was like. They have an exciting time together before he time travels back and becomes an archaeologist later in life. We retold the story using actions and made story maps. We also looked at the parts of the story and boxed it up into 5 parts.

 

Year 3

Stone Age

September

In History we found different artifacts around school and inferred what they were used for. They were all from the Stone Age! We have also been learning about Stone Age art. We discovered that they draw or painted on the sides of caves using hands as stencils. They also painted amazing pictures of the animals that were around in the Stone Age, many of which are extinct now. We used chalk and charcoal to make our own cave pictures.
