Avengers Spring 2

English
In our English lessons, we have been diving into the wonderful world of literature. We recently read the thought-provoking book “The Great Kapok Tree,” which explores the morals behind whether the man chooses to chop down the tree. Through this story, we have learned about the importance of preserving our natural habitats, the impact of logging and the consequences of deforestation.

To enhance our understanding, we engaged in lively discussions and worked on persuasive texts. We researched and gathered evidence to present compelling arguments against chopping down the Great Kapok Tree. It was amazing to see the passion and creativity showcased in each student’s work.

Maths
In Maths, we have been exploring different concepts related to weight, volume, and mass. Our problem-solving skills have been put to the test as we have compared, contrasted and calculated two and three step word problems. Some of these were a little tricky but well done for your perseverance!

History
Our history lessons have taken us back in time to the fascinating era of the Romans. We have been discovering more about the Roman Empire, their way of life, and their impact on Britain. As a special treat, we recently embarked on a fantastic class trip to the Ribchester Roman Museum. Exploring the ruins and artefacts first-hand was an incredible way to bring history to life!

 

 

Geography
Geography has been an exciting subject for us this term as we have been studying various climates around the world. We delved into the jungle and desert environments, exploring their distinct features and understanding how different ecosystems function. Through research and visual aids we have been able to compare and contrast and gained a deeper appreciation for our diverse planet.

DT
In Design Technology (DT), we have been exploring the fascinating world of pneumatic systems. Students have been engaged in designing their own devices using balloons, boxes with lids, and pipes for inflation. It has been wonderful to witness their creativity and problem-solving skills come to life as they develop their unique designs. We can’t wait to see the final products!

RE
Our Religious Education (RE) lessons have centred around understanding the Easter story and the concept of sacrifice. We have learned about the significance of Easter in the Christian faith, reflecting on the values of love, forgiveness, and selflessness. These discussions have prompted thoughtful reflections and helped foster empathy and understanding among the students.

Science
In our Science lessons, the focus has been on the properties and behaviour of light. We have conducted experiments to explore reflection, refraction, and how light travels. Through hands-on activities and discussions, we have gained an understanding of this fundamental scientific concept.

PSHE
Personal, Social, Health, and Economic Education (PSHE) has played a vital role in developing important life skills. We have been learning about keeping ourselves and others safe, covering topics such as road safety, online safety, and health and wellbeing. Additionally, we have explored money-saving techniques, responsible spending, and even earning opportunities. These lessons aim to equip our students with the essential skills needed for a successful and fulfilling life.

PE
Our Physical Education (PE) lessons have been focused on gymnastics. Throughout the term, we have been working on improving our balance, developing new sequences, and mastering various travel techniques. These lively lessons have not only enhanced our physical skills but also promoted teamwork and perseverance.

Music

This half term the year 3 children have been appraising music/active music using Charanga. We have tried to identify whether the music is from a different tradition and aimed to remember some of the melodies from the piece. We shared our thoughts and feelings about the piece of music, listened to identify the vocals – if it was a male of female voice singing. The tried to identify the style of the music. We have used the glockenspiels and keyboards to play a falling melody heard in one of our pieces.

The children have also been hard at work learning Easter songs and hymns to perform at our annual Easter Service at St. Catherine’s Church.
