A warm welcome to Year 3!

The Year 3 team (Mrs Coop, Mrs Teasdale, Mrs Whittaker and Mrs Carr) are delighted to welcome you to our class. We already have lots of exciting events planned, including celebrating Roald Dahl day and a visit to The Turnpike as part of the Leigh Canal Festival. There will lots of updates, photographs and information on this class page all year to help you feel involved in your child's learning and the Leigh St. Mary's school community.  Please feel free to come and see us with any questions or comments you have now and at any point during the year. Thank you! 

Autumn 2. Who Lived in a Cave?

This half-term we will be exploring the learning question - Who Lived in a Cave? We will investigate how people lived in the Stone Age period - where did they live? what did they eat? how did they get their food? why did they move around? how do we know about their lifestyles so many years later...? In English, we will use high quality texts such as Ug by Raymond Briggs, Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamoura and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth by Kate Robinson. We will explore Stone Age cave paintings and bone jewellery. Watch this space for an announcement on our Forest School Stone Age Day - all welcome!

3.12.18 Design and Technology. We have been using our design and construction skills to make our own Stonehenge monuments. We experimented with different materials and fixings to build it - afterwards we evaluated our designs, thinking about what went well and what we would do differently next time.

28.11.18 Forest School Stone Age Day. What a wonderful day we had exploring our Stone Age topic even further! We made our own paintbrushes, shot at apples using bows and arrows we made ourselves, cooked our own toast on the fire and made shelters for when the rain came! The children also practised their skills of cooperation, perseverance and trust. Thank you to the parents and grandparents who joined us - we enjoyed welcoming you into our class for the day.

12.11.18 Anti-Bullying Week. This morning we discussed #chooserespect and what that means. We made our own comic strips to show what bullying can look like and how it can also be resolved. This afternoon we completed graffiti art, inspired by local artist kELzO, to #chooserespect. Watch out for the graffiti on display soon...

Half-term Challenge. Thank you for all the effort and support given over half-term! The children have produced some amazing models, research and have already developed a great understanding of the subject. We have thoroughly enjoyed hearing each other's fact-finding missions and looking at the work produced.

Week Beg 29.10.18 We have really enjoyed the start of our Stone Age topic. We began the week by looking at artefacts like bones, flint, berries and fur pelts to think about how Stone Age people might have lived. Once we had learned about their dwellings and hunter-gathering lifestyle, we made our own camps.

18.10.18 This week our gallery of 'pit prop art' was completed. The children were inspired by our visit to Astley pit and the results are amazing! We began by learning how to shade and tint with oil pastels and made a beautiful sunset background. Next we used line drawing to re-create the shapes of the pithead winding gear. Finally, we used black oil pastels to draw the silhouette of the mining equipment on the background. I'm sure you will agree - the results are stunning! Click the star for the full album...

28.9.18 We have had an amazing week talking about life down't pit! We have researched what life would have been like for a Victorian child worker in the mines, crawled under the tables to generate vocabulary in our writing like 'cramped' and 'despairing'. Adelaide and Lacey bought in great artefacts and fact files from home...We welcomed Eric in to class to talk about his experiences as a miner in the Atherton collieries - the children asked great questions and were fascinated by his answers. We were very surprised to find out he preferred his job in the mine to his job on the buses! Thank you Eric!
