Can you catch them all?!
“Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, welcome to Year 3’s first topic choice of the year. Strap in for the journey as we head over to the Far East of Asia!”
Year 3 will be flexing their creativity muscles in their first topic of the year as they have decided on art-based topic taking inspiration from the Far East in particularly Japan; we will be researching Anime art and how it is used in drawings such as Ladybug & Cat Noir and Pokémon. By exploring and experimenting with specific techniques, our very own characters will be created using this very unique style.
We will be staying in the Pacific Ocean region to study natural disasters for our Geography sessions. We will seek to understand the occurrence of national disasters happening there. Why do many earthquakes and volcanoes happen there?
In Literacy we will have the opportunity to create a poem and write a narrative adventure based on the David Almond’s entertaining book ‘The boy who swam with piranhas.’
Our longitudinal Science study, which takes place throughout the whole of Year 3, will be to understand the changes around habitats. This is an opportunity to explore the school grounds and examine the wildlife that lives there.
In PE, for the first half term, our units are invasion games and dance. Our PE day is Thursday; please wear PE kit in to school. When the weather is colder, we would recommend a tracksuit on these days.
All of this will be on top of our usual guided reading, spellings, maths, music and French sessions. A jam-packed start to the term!
