Every Friday, Year 3 have the fantastic opportunity of having a music teacher come into school and teach them how to play the recorder. They learn a variety of different notes and get the chance to perform to the school and their parents during the year.
In Topic we have been learning all about the Stone Age and the Iron Age. Year 3 were very lucky to have a visitor come into school and talk to them about the Iron Age. The children were able to have a look at some resources that would of been used in this time period such as; plates, swords, helmets, shields, coins and armour! They even got to re-enact a battle scene on the school field using some of the weapons.
We are very lucky at Henley Green to have iPads in school for the children to use. We have recently been using them for different types of research. The children work responsibly, both independently and in pairs to do this and enjoy sharing their own knowledge of how to use them.
Year 3 also have an experienced gardener come into school to teach the children about, the life cycle of a plant, seasonality, and making compost. They have also had the opportunity to plant their own seeds into our Henley Green allotment and can watch them grow throughout the year.
Year 3 took part in a Maths workshop. They were able to show off all of their learning through activities and games to their parents. This was a great success and the children thoroughly enjoyed showing off their Maths skills.
To make our Christmas cards this year we used the artist Lowry as a staring point and then used water colours to create a colour wash. We also designed our own Christmas trees using pine and drift wood. The children measured their own wood. Then sensibly used saws and glue guns, with adult support to create their own personalised tree. They then were able to decorate it with a variety of resources such as; snowflakes, snow, stars, glitter and string.
Please make sure your child/children are reading every night and practise their key skills and spellings ready for their test on Thursdays.
PE in Year 3 is on Tuesdays. Please make sure your child has the correct kit in school every week. The correct kit is black pumps or trainers, black, green or white shorts/trousers no logos or branded kit.
Henley Green...it's our place to shine.
