Welcome to Year 3 from Mrs Thursby!
Hello everyone! My name is Mrs Thursby and I warmly welcome you to the Year 3 class. Everyone in Year 3 works hard to make sure that the transition to KS2 is successful. We no longer have an afternoon break but you will be so busy that you won't even notice! Mrs Burnett and Miss Harrison will be helping us with our learning and it promises to be an exciting year. We have lots of super topics that are going to inspire us and excite us as we learn. Our first topic is called Wild at Heart and will involve learning about Africa, its land and culture and how it compares with the UK. We have a very exciting trip planned to Yorkshire Wildlife Park which will kick start our focus on African animals. Look out for the photographs!
Please feel free to come and see our classroom. You are very welcome any time. We have some fantastic African sunsets for you to admire.
Trip to Yorkshire Wildlife Park:
In October we joined Year 4 for an amazing day at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We had a great time finding out about African animals and received a specialist teaching session too. Please have a look at the photographs. You can see from these that we really enjoyed our learning experiences and it certainly helped us to write our non chronological reports!
Story Telling Project BGU
This term we have been working with BGU to improve our understanding of stories. A group of students came to visit and we shared our favourite stories. The students collected our ideas and then went back to university to plan a whole day of story activities based around our favourite books. Just before Half Term we had the opportunity to visit the university and join in with some fantastic experiences all based around stories. This included art, drama and music. A super day was had by all and it will be an experience that will always be remembered.
This term we have been working on our non-fiction writing. We have chosen an African animal to research and we have written a very detailed report with sub-headings. We have some fantastic examples in our classroom that we would love you to come and read. We are sure you will learn lots of interesting facts about African animals. Please come and have look!!!
Wild Woodcraft Trip!
Year 3 would like to say a huge thank you to Maria and Matthew at Wild woodcraft. We had an amazing Stone Age experience and everyone who went will never forget some of the wonderful things we did! Year 3 particularly enjoyed learning how to make their own fires and there is nothing like first hand experience to help you understand history. This trip helped us put our learning in the classroom into a real life context. What better way to learn about the Stone Age than to be a cave person for the day! From fire making to fish gutting it was a memorable day! Enjoy our photos which hopefully capture the learning that took place and the fun we had in the process!
