Welcome to the Dove Class page!
This term, our topic is called 'Rock and Roll'. This topic is all about the Stone Age to Iron Age, rocks and fossils, forces and magnets.
Below are some documents that will support you with your work this year.
In art, we have begun learning about the artist Keith Haring. We spent time looking at examples of his artwork and finding the features he liked to use. Features like: strong, bold colours, simple people outlines, black lines, dogs and movement lines.
We have been learning to use inverted commas when writing speech sentences! We have also got rather good at correcting our mistakes!
We have been using expanded column methods to add 3-digit numbers!
We identified different rocks from their descriptions and drew them! Next, we will do experiments and make predictions!
We have done our vegetable and fruit drawings for Harvest time. Carefully, we worked in groups and persevered with teamwork. We have not finished yet... so watch this space for the finished pieces of art!
We had fun learning our times tables in different ways!
During cricket training, we learnt how to work together to throw and catch as many balls as we could! We learnt to watch the ball carefully and to make sure our partner is ready to catch it when we throw it.
We worked together to think of the things we 'want and need' and what we want our time in Year 3 to be like. Then, we created rockets that included our hopes and the things we would do to make sure that our class is a happy place to learn and have fun.
We used advice about the proportions of the human body and our pencil skills to draw our friends.
We have worked on reading and writing 3-digit numbers in numerals and words!
We looked at using the words 'a and an' (types of determiners) and how vowel and consonant sounds beginning the next word change when we should use them. We also worked hard on using adjectives between the determiners and nouns to see what would happen.
