Year 3 - Mrs Wilkinson
This week we have started to learn our new text, which is a shortened version of The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi. If you would like to read it, click here!
This is our text map, which the children find really helpful to help them to remember the text. Maybe you could try learning it too!
This afternoon we learnt about Howard Hodgkin, a British artist who creates abstract art. We created our own abstract art using warm colours, painted onto paper and cut into strips. Mrs Wilkinson says this isn't the finished display yet, but we wanted to show you how amazing our art work looks as soon as we could!
Year 3 have been learning to sing songs from countries in Africa this term in music. Today, they composed a rhythm with a partner to play along with a song called Funga Alafia.
Y3 are busy learning our new text How to Tame a Giant Lizard! It's very informative!
This is our text map of the text - ignore the slightly dodgy thumbs up in the Extra Information!

We have a fab new model text in class called Quite an Adventure! You can read it here. We've started to learn it, with the help of our text map, which is shown below. Soon, we'll be writing our own stories about conquering a monster, just like in Quite an Adventure!
We've been SO busy trying to get our Surprise Boxes finished before Easter! Have you got one at home now? Did you like the surprise?
Y3 are learning a very interesting information text about trees! This is the text map that accompanies it! Can you work out what it says? Click here if you'd like to know what it actually says! Y3 children will be bringing home a copy of the text and text map this afternoon to practise at home!
In maths today we were working with practical equipment to understand mulitplication. We had challenges to complete in pairs and chose what we wanted to use to help us. Some of us used partitioning too!
Y3 have loved World Book Day and particularly the Book Tasting, where we had yummy cakes and looked at 10 new books Mrs WIlkinson had chosen for our class. It was great to see them and find out what they were like, and they very quickly got claimed by children wanting to read them!
We have been learning our new text, Kaya’s Journey, this week. This is our new text map- see if your child can tell you the story!
We have been creating insect sculptures this week, as the end point of our Art topic, Insects. Painting is ongoing, pictures will follow and insects will make their way home!
Y3 are loving our practical activities this week, building a road to the moon! We’ve read What We’ll Build by Oliver Jeffers and the children are coming up with some amazingly creative solutions!
And they're done! Party day and completed juggling balls, ready to go home!
We're now decorating our tie-dyed socks! Mrs Wilkinson managed to dye them without staining herself or her kitchen!! We're using fabric pens to put our designs on!
Y3 are enjoying some free choice on the laptops and iPads this afternoon! We’ve had Bug Club, TTRock Stars, Zumos and Purple Mash logins! All very creative! For login details, email firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure you tell me your child’s name!
We’re making juggling balls in Y3! We’ve been getting our socks ready for tie-dying. We decided what filling we’d like our balls to have from a choice of differernt fillings. We chose different ways to elastic band our socks and we can’t wait for them be brightly coloured and patterned!
