 Year 3         Mr Morton         Term 6

Article 10- Families who live in different countries should be allowed to move between those countries so that parents and children can stay in contact, or get back together as a family. 

 

Welcome back Year 3 hope you have a restful Easter break and ready for another exciting term, filled with the wonders of our world!

 

This term is based around our question of ‘What is beautiful in our world?’ Firstly, a little quiz to get you thinking about our ‘Beautiful World.

 

Can you name the following five places in Great Britain?  

 

As part of our topic this term we will be looking at geographical features of the landscape and learning about different places around Great Britain.

 

  • Where have you been with your family in Great Britain?
  • Have you climbed a mountain?
  • Paddled in a river or the sea?
  • Have you been surfing along our coastline?
  • Have you seen a manmade sculpture?

 

These questions and many more will be shared through our topic and include presenting information to the class through a topic based piece of homework. There will be opportunities each week for you to bring any objects, pictures, photographs or books, based around a geographical theme, places you may have visited, souvenirs or interesting facts about plants and animals you have discovered!

 

Our theme for R.E this term looks at Pentecost and we will be focusing on the appearance of Jesus after the resurrection, the coming of the Holy Spirit, including how it is symbolised and the ways in which Pentecost is celebrated within the Christian church.

 

In our Design Technology we will be planning and designing a new school garden. We will think of ideas for its purpose, where to site it and also how it will look. In order to achieve this we will need to look at lots of gardens, research using the internet and also use the experience of a real garden designer to help us. Once we have established the best design we will create a model garden showing the features we have planned in.

 

Art 
Using our topic we will create landscape paintings which highlight vast skies, large rocky hills and mountains, sweeping valleys and different types of weather. We will use different paint techniques to create atmosphere in our pieces of work.

 

Article 10- If you live in a different country than your parents do, you have the right to be together in the same place.

 

Keep your eyes open as we complete various activities we will post photographs on our class page to celebrate our achievements.
