Spring Term in Year 3

Spring 2 ...

Our new topic this term is ‘Green Fingers’.  In science, we will be identifying the different parts of a flowering plant. We will also investigate what plants need to survive and how water is transported within plants. Finally, we will explore the part that flowers play in life cycles of flowering plants.

     In geography, we will be learning about rivers. We cannot wait for our trip to Greystones where we will participate in a river study workshop!

Spring 1 ...

  Where Did It All Begin? 

In Spring Term, we are studying the Stone Age. To understand how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources, we observed the images that remained on the walls of the Lascaux caves. We were amazed to see how beautiful the paintings and carvings, which had been created thousands of years ago in today’s France, still are. 

We imagined that we are living in the Stone Age and we had a go at creating pictures in the style of cave paintings – while ‘hiding in a cave’! We used the floor, leant against the walls or lay under our desks as the artists would have done thousands of years ago.

Homework Spring Term 2020

Autumn Term

Superheroes in Training

This term, our topic is called 'Superheroes in Training' which fits well with our new start at Carrant Brook. We have had a fantastic start, being busy in all subjects - have a look at some examples of our work. 

We were learning how to follow instructions carefully and we made super-tasty, healthy sandwiches that even The Iron Man would not refuse!
