Your child’s journey through Year 3
Ancient Greek Warfare
It was fun to learn about Ancient Greek weapons and warfare. Their shields were huge and the swords were incredibly heavy! Later, we split into Athens and Sparta, to learn commands and work as a whole army to respond together. It was awesome!
We learnt how clever Archimedes was and took on the challenge of solving a puzzle he created. It was really tricky and we needed lots of resilience to complete the task!
In our workshop, we acted out the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. We were brilliant actors and are using this myth in our literacy lessons, so it was a great introduction to the story.
During our Ancient Greece Workshop, we worked in pairs to be fact detectives and use information boards to find the answers to lots of questions. There was a lot to find out, but we were fabulous!
We started to learn about the functions of our skeleton and how it protects our vital organs. In teams, we made the outline of a body, placed the organs where we thought they were inside our body and made bones to protect them. Our teamwork was amazing!
British Museum Trip
Year 3 had a great day in the Ancient Egyptians Galleries at the British Museum.
Adults were really impressed with how much the children remembered from their topics and one mum was amazed at how much the children taught her during the day. A huge thank you to all the parents who came with us, we couldn’t do it without you!
Maths and Geography
Year 3 children have been enjoying practical lessons in Maths and Geography.
We enjoyed designing and making our own junk model animals. We made them move using a pneumatic system and we really enjoyed testing out the pneumatic systems too!
Beckenham Place Park
Year 3 children had a great day out exploring the ancient woodland in Beckenham Place Park linked to our ‘If You Go Down to the Woods Today’ topic.
