Year 3


In the Box

Terms 1 & 2

Throughout Term 1, our topic will be In the Box. As part of this, the children will:
• Design and make worry boxes, using and experimenting with different materials
• Write a set of instruction on how to use worry boxes
• Read and discuss texts relating to worry, such as Silly Billy
• Make worry dolls.

 At the start of Term 2, children will begin to learn about the Polar Regions. This will lead into our Term 2 topic - ‘Life in the Freezer’. They will be locating the Arctic and Antarctic on a variety of maps and exploring the people and animals that inhabit these extreme environments. We will also be creating some wonderful artwork inspired by the Northern Lights, Arctic animals and the countries that make up the Polar Regions. In English, the children will be studying a range of texts such as the fantastic ‘Lost and Found’.​

Year 3 have been working hard at home these past two terms on their home learning projects. We have really enjoyed seeing their efforts and how creative each child has been! It was also brilliant to see so many confident children present their project in front of their classes. A huge well done to every child who brought in a project this term.
