Year 3 2015-2016
Summer Term 2016
This term we will be studying the continent of Africa mainly looking at the country of Kenya. We visited the African Village in Cog Moors and visiting a local Mosque. We have an exciting last term ahead in Year 3.
We really enjoyed our recent trip to Cog Moors Waste Water Treatment centre. We learnt all about how we get water and also got to experience what life would be like in an African Village. Thanks to Cam and Rachel at the centre for teaching us lots of new things. We had to walk to the nearest pond to collect water and also did lots of experiments. We had a fantastic day!
Spring Term 2016
This term our topic is:
We looked at where Vikings are from, what kind of clothes they wore, the houses they live in and much much more.
We made amazing Viking shields. Look at our scary Viking faces!
In preparation for our topic of 'Africa' in the summer term we are very lucky to have Mr Rees from UPBEAT Music in this term to teach us to play some African drums.
Look how good we are!
One of our topics this term was 2D shapes. We did lots of fun activities to help us learn about 2D shapes. One of the activities we did was a wanted poster describing properties of a shapes, some of us also invented our own 2D shape, we decorated pizza's with 2D shapes and even wrote our names using 2D shapes. The work is now displayed in the classroom. Take a look at some of our work.

We had a brilliant time visiting St Madoc's back in September, have a look in our gallery to see some of the pictures from this fantastic trip!
Every Friday morning we are very lucky to have Mr Rees from UPBEAT! music to come and teach us how to play the Glockenspiel. If we keep practising really hard Mr Rees said that we can do a concert infront of Mums and Dads as well as the whole school.
The concert will be on Thursday 9th July!
Queen as she presents new colours to the Royal Welsh Regiment.
This was a once in a lifetime experience and is something the children (and staff!) will not forget.
Last term we are studied 'Spectacular Spain'. An exciting topic where we learnt
about the Spanish Culture, Spanish art, music in Spain and we'll even have a go at some Spanish dancing!
We really enjoyed learning about Spain!
The learners have been enjoying using our 'Travel Agents' role play area. I wonder where Johnny and Calum are going on their holidays?
We have been designing our own flags
Here we are finding all the world continents on a globe. There are 7 continents of the world:
ASIA, AFRICA, NORTH AMERICA, SOUTH AMERICA, EUROPE, AUSTRALASIA AND ANTARCTICA.
We have started using an atlas to find out where countries are in the world.
Completing a jigsaw puzzle of Europe was a good way of learning all the different countries and their sizes.
Our class assembly was on the 12 February. We spoke about Chinese New Year and what we have learnt in Year 3 so far. The assembly went really well and the children did a fantastic job. They should all be very proud!
Here are some pictures of the assembly taken by members of our GPS News Team:
