Welcome to Year 3!
Year 3- Key Information
Thank you for your cooperation.
Our Year 3 topic this term is based around 'how the people from the past shaped the world we know today.' As a result the children have been learning a lot about the Victorians and the inventions created that impact the modern world.
We visited the National Railway Musium in York to learn all about the railways and trains of the past and present. The children were given a guided tour around each of the many steam trains in the museum. They were also given the opportunity to become young engineers for the day, learning all about the engineering behind building railways, tunnels and trains.
Iron Man Creations.
Since the start of term we have been reading The Iron Man in our reciprocal reading sessions.
The children have demonstrated a lot of enthusiasm for the book and have really enjoyed what they have read so far. Using the variation of descriptive writing in the book, the children have began to build up a picture in their minds about what the Iron Man might look like. Some of the children have gone home and created their own model version of the Iron Man and here are some of their fantastic creations:
Yorkshire Sculpture Park
As part of our topic about creating sculptures related to what we treasure, we visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It was a great day out and the weather was kind to us. We looked at sculptures from different artists, such as Barbara Hepworth and Sophie Ryder. The children were intrigued in what the sculptures were made from and how they were made. We also had a go at sketching some of the sculptures and are going to have a go at creating our own sculptures in class.
