This half term Year 3 have been learning about the Netherlands. We asked Mrs Stewart questions about what it was like to live there and looked at some objects she had brought back from her time there. We have compared The Hague, the city where Mrs Stewart lived, to Bradford and have found out about the weather, location and attractions in both places. As part of our work we have also looked at the art work of Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt and Piet Mondrian. Our final presentation was an art gallery in which parents could see what we have been learning.
We enjoyed a visit from our friends at Blakehill Primary School. Working with our partner from the link school we took part in collaborative activities, including building a tower to support an egg, finding QR codes, parachute games and creating a friendship shield.
Next half term we will be visiting Blakehill Primary School and taking part in some more fun activities with our new friends.
In class we will be finding out about why it is not healthy to eat sweets all day, every day. To link with this we will be planting our own healthy vegetables in science and finding out about how to make plants grow successfully.
In English we will be reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, designing our own factory room and creating a pop-up to show what this looks like. We will also look at poetry and create a keeping healthy leaflet for our parents.
In maths we will be reviewing our work with time, fractions and angles and turns. We will also be doing some data handling linked to exercise and plants, recording our findings as pictograms and bar charts.
