Year 3 Information

Spring Term

This term Year 3 are travelling back in time to Ancient Greece. We will learn about the Olympics, gods and goddesses, what it was like to attend school during this time and the armies that went into battle. We will also be enjoying some fantastic Greek myths and have a go at writing all about them. There will be lots of chances to create some wonderful artwork when we study Greek pottery and create our own from clay. The children will also have a great learning experience when History off the Page visit on 5th February. In science, the children will be learning about magnets and forces. In English, the children will be learning about Greek myths and writing their own myths and descriptions. In maths, the children will be writing and calculating mathematical statements for multiplication and division using mental methods and then progressing to more formal written methods.

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.
