Welcome to Year 3
Meet the Year 3 staff
In music, we have been learning to compose. We learnt all about the different notes before writing our own tunes. Finally, we performed our own compositions.
In art, we have been learning all about Roman mosaics. We started about learning about mosaics and where you would have found them. After that, we then designed our own taking inspiration from some we studied. Then, we printed our own mosaic borders and tried to match our original designs. Finally, we evaluated our artwork.
In maths week, we took part in a variety of maths activities. Firstly, we took part in the Maths on Toast terrific triangles workshop where we learnt more about tessellation. We also created our own pictograms and then shared our work with year 4. Finally, we had an amazing Times Table Rockstars' day!
Year 3 took part in a Pirate day to learn how to be the best pirates so that we can apply for a job on Captain Stubble's ship. We learnt about co-ordinates, directions, the history of pirates and much more! We had the best day and we hope the pictures show that!
Our art topic this term was M.C Escher. We were focusing on tessellations and collage to create our own animals. We hope you like our work!
In Geography, we have been learning all about the United Kingdom. First, we learnt all about the countries, counties and then the cities of the UK. We then looked at our local area and we learnt that our school is part of Dane Bank, Denton, Tameside, Greater Manchester, the North West of England and Europe!
