Welcome to Wear – Year 3
Our time in Wear class is always spent learning, working hard and having fun.
As soon as we come into the classroom, we practice our times table for that day before going to assembly. In Maths, we have been focusing on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This year, we’ve spent time solving some very tricky word problems and organising 2D and 3D shapes into the correct categories based on their properties.
After break-time, we have 15 minutes silent reading to improve our own skill through practice. In English, we have been learning about word classes and understanding how different punctuation marks fit into sentences. Every Friday we take a grammar quiz that focuses on what we have learnt that week.
In our Science lessons this year, we have looked at humans and the body, the life of plants, the water cycle and different rock types. Wear class also seem to have a very keen interest in space and planets, which we often talk about just before we go home for the day.
Our topics this year have been interesting to the entire class. We took a trip back to Ancient Egypt and learnt how to write our name in hieroglyphics, learnt all about the great pyramids and even designed our own Egyptian burial masks! When we learnt about the Stone-age, we wrote our own stone-age stories about being sent back in time and even received a message from an actual time-traveller. Learning about how a volcano is formed and how eruptions happen caused quite a lot of excitement in the class and we created our own pieces of art inspired by volcanic eruptions.
The rest of our afternoons are spent learning about Art, D.T, ICT, and PHSE.
Everybody in Wear class knows the name Roald Dahl (and some very interesting facts about him!) after reading The BFG and George’s Marvellous Medicine as a class and creating pieces of writing based around those books. Using descriptions from The BFG, we designed ourselves as giants and had some very interesting discussion about how we would look!
We have been lucky enough to attend two sports tournaments: a tennis tournament and a tri-golf tournament. Wear class’ performed excellent at both events and even received special certificates commending how well they did.
